There should be a drain hole or tube that leads out of the car. Find it and clean it out. (wet/dry shop vac?)
Don't poke too sharp of things into it, or you might damage something, though.

SOURCE: Working on a 2000 Audi A8. Need info on changing

If it's anything like the six cylinder engines from Audi, which I'm very familiar with, and from what I remember of the V8, you have a timing belt that drives the water pump, crank, and exhaust cams, and also includes a tensioner and an idler roller. The timing chains come into play in the cylinder heads. What Audi did was to only drive the exhaust cams off of the crank, using the timing belt, and inside each cylinder head there is a timing chain assembly that is used to drive the intake cams off the exhaust cams. On a periodic service (like the timing service) you only need to do the timing belt. The timing chains are only replaced if the tensioners fail - you'll know this by a diesel-like clatter from the cylinder heads. Failure of the chain drive assemblies is very rare, which is good because they're incredibly expensive (on the V6 engines they're upwards of $700 each). If you're doing this job because it's due based on mileage, don't touch the timing chains in the cylinder heads - only change the timing belt, tensioner roller, relay arm, hydraulic tensioner, idler pulley, water pump, and serpentine belt. You can leave the chains alone.

Hi,
For the Audi A8 code P0735 "Gear 5 Ratio incorrect" is a transmission problem and should be taken to a transmission shop that you trust. Have a good day.

Take this car to a certified/qualified repair technician immediately!
You have some rather serious electrical faults happening and as a professional fire fighter, I can't tell you how many 1000's of vehicles burst into flames every year because of these types of problems. This is NOT a self fixer, it needs a professional.

Remove abs pump audi a8


Completely depends on the year of A8...

Also why are you removing the pump?

It's usually the electrical control module on them that fail, those can usually be removed from the main assembly without removing the whole thing.

2005 audi a8 trunk + upgrades for ipod integration


I had exact same problem, but what I found out was a three step solution to the problem.
1) The trunk lock above the trunk lid tself - sometimes looses coiling retention for the lock to work properly, which in effect does not properly lock wrap around the pull down electronic unit located in the body of the car/trunk that catches and pull the trunk lid down SOLUTION: check and make sure lock is works properly. you cab check by opening trunk and locking it with remote key, then pry the lock with a screw driver to see if it unlocks or stays locked

2) The motor catching unit in the body of the car/trunk that catches the lid and draws it down can be off balance (sitting too low to catch the lock (upper trunk lid with lock) to pull it down and stay locked. Have a mechanic - Audi preferrably, check the positon and allignment to adjust it, so it can catch trunk lid and lock to stay locked. HOPE THIS HELPS!
