On the extreme left of the dashboard where the door seems to make contact with the dash, there is a "D" shaped panel that can be pried off by sticking a very thin screwdriver or similiar object in the notch. Once the panel is off you will see a cluster of fuses from 5 to 30 amps. On the panel you removed you will see a label indicating which fuse operates which electrical component and the size of the fuse. The fuse that operates the heated steering wheel warmer should be # 27. You may find that the fuse is not blown but for some reason the warmer is not working. For safety you can still remove the fuse. I think in the Avant this fuse also operates the rear windshield wiper.

Hi, I have a 1999 Audi A6 Avant. The steering wheel squeals when I turn left or right. I had the steering pump replaced. It stopped after replacing it and then started again shortly after. Took the car...


the pulley tentioner on the power steering belt, i ve done lots of them, they are self tentioning and over time can cause to much tention on the belt, if this the case when you have the steering at full lock it should squeal the loudest.

SMOKE COMING FROM STEERING COLOM


You will have to take the turn signal switch out to see what happened. That means taking the steering wheel off probably. Which requires a large socket. You tap lightly on the nut once loose, while lifting on the wheel, to release the taper.
But be sure to disconnect the battery first if you have an air bag in the steering wheel. They are explosive.

2001 Audi A6 Seat overheated!


There should be plug for the heated seat most likley under it or on the drivers side of passenger seat. This should fix your problem, if it doesn't that means the short is in the dial in the dash. There should be a seperate fuse for each seat in the fuse box. If unplugging the seat doesn't help come back and i will figure out which fuse is the right one and where your fuse box is.
