I have 2 of these Audi Cabriolets the problem i found with the electric hood is the wires that run along the boot hinge these break and you can't see them because they are covered with tape. Get an auto electrician to sort this out and all will be well

I suspect that the wires on the left and the right hand side is in the bootlid are broken.

In the black tubes there are 7 or 8 wires depending on year model. I guess you have 8. You can easy fix this by yourself. If you have skill in soldering that is a plus but you don't have to solder. If you loosen the cables you can acutally feel with your fingers where the "bow" is on the cable that there are broken wires inside. Cut approx 5-10 cm on each side and replace with new wires in the same dimension. Then use electric tape (I used cloth tape as it s smoother and don't get stiff) to cover the new part of wires.

If you have an alarm in your car, remove the minus cable from the battery before you start.

Hope this helps.

Heatbolt torque settings for audi 2.8 v6 30 valve quattro 1998 sedan


I assume you mean "Cylinder Head Bolts".

Tighten bolts in two-step sequence (See diagram)
Step 1 = 44 Ft. Lbs (60 N.m)
Step 2 = Additional 1/2 turn

These are "torque-to-yield" bolts and NEW bolts must ALWAYS be used when the cylinder head bolts are removed.

I have a 1998 audi a4 with the v6 2.8. my radio is on safe. what do i have to do to get the stereo to work. if i need a code, how do i get it...


IMPORTANT NOTE: You must have the security anti-theft code for your Audi radio from the car manufacturer, or from an Audi dealer!

The sequence of radio programming for 1998 Audi A4 V6 2.8 is:

1. Push simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys until on the screen will appear "1000" displayed.
2. Release keys. No more push on "SCAN" and "RDS" keys because otherwise number "1000" will be considered as first safe code attempt.
3. By the #1 key you will set up the first safe code digit.
4. By the #2 key you will set up the second safe code digit.
5. By the #3 key you will set up the third safe code digit.
6. By the #4 key you will set up the four-th safe code digit.
7. Then push again simultaneous "SCAN" and "RDS" keys for confirm this safe code. On the screen will be displayed "SAFE" notice. Release keys! For few seconds a radio frequence will be displayed. The radio is now ready for use!


Please do rate my response. Thanks!

01 audi tt quattro cruise controle stopped working


You own an Audi, everything is expensive. If your cruise light doesn't come on at all, you have an electrical problem. If the light comes on, you have an actuator problem, or a vacuum problem. The dealer, or a shop that works on Audi's should be able to find the problem.

Support Bracket power steering AUDI 1998 2.8


Any comparable car should work. Your car is a 98, so you would have to stick with Audi/VW cars that have the 30v V6 (98-01.5). The 97 and earlier years used an older 12v V6 and those aren't compatible. It's unlikely that the 1.8T models would work either. You'd have to look for A4, A6, and Passat cars in the model range I mentioned, and you may find that if you have a quattro model, your replacement would have to come from a quattro (Audi) or 4motion (VW) car as well. Try to find a donor car with your same drivetrain (30v V6, auto/stick - whichever you have, and 2wd/4wd, whichever you have).

To tell at a glance which engine is which, the 30v has black covers on the valve covers that say "5V" (for five valves per cylinder). The older 12v cars I believe actually say "12v" on them.
