Question about 1996 Audi A6
Hi moved from US and have bought an a 1996 Audi a6 2.0 petrol engine, 60K miles, everything works and runs fine but this week I noticed I have a fuel line leak. Losing fuel under the right hand front seat can tell it is corroded. I need to replace ASAP as this is my only car.
However, I have NO money for a mechanic so I have to do this myself.
I'm pretty good at simple repairs but need to know what I do here and what parts etc I will need so I can do this right.
Please where can I find this information on exactly what needs to be done and how tools etc....
Find out the diameter of the line and get some tubing and compression fittings at a hardware store.

Did they specify that both of those were for the A4 of your model year, or could one have been for the S4 (the twin-turbo version of the A4)? If they're both for the A4, I'd think that logic would dictate that the 120 amp unit would be for the 2.8L and the 90 amp unit for the smaller 1.8T engine. I'm not positive, and I've yet to come across discussions of this on the Audi boards, but that'd be my bet.

I had similar problems with speedos in two 1990 Audi 100s, it was some time ago, but the contacts on the circuit boards on the back of the speedo deteriorate and do not give a good contact. I bought second hand speedos, only to find they had similar problems, eventually it was very easy to fix, I shaved matchsticks to chisel points and pushed them into the circuit boards to add pressure on the contacts and improve connection. After that repair drove the cars for a few years and the problem did not recur. It was a long time ago and I cannot remember exactly where the matchsticks were placed but look for soldered points near the edges of the boards. Regards, Michael

Take out the two Torx bolts on top of the headlight assembly. Then there is a third hidden bolt. Look through the holes in the top front of the fender, above and behind the headlight's turn signal portion (you'll probably need to shine a light in there) and you'll see the third bolt. Remove that and the headlight pulls straight forward and out. Then you can change the bulb.

Enter the radio code, take your car to the dealership with proof of ownership and they can get it for you, you should have it from the previous owner or if you bought it new, to enter it, hold the pscan and rbds buttons for a few seconds, then numbers will show up, press the corresponding buttons to change the numbers, when you have your code in, hold pscan and rbds buttons for a few seconds. when you release the radio should unlock, good luck

SOURCE: AUdi A6 gas tank button
There is no button to open the gas door from the inside of the car. As long as the doors are unlocked, you should be able to push in the far right side of the gas door and the left side will pop open. I too spent hours looking for this non existent button..I went as far as to going back to the car dealership.
