No idea if this pump will fit as iam not a dealer fitter but a 1994 model shouldnt be that difficult to fit but only ever seen diesels of this vehicle never a big petrol engine as just not the market here for them with our fuel prices ,our models of this year were rear wheel drive if i remember rightly so if this is as well then changing a water pump requires removal of the radiator and front of the car which again providing my mermory holds up is on a hinge and the front sort of opens like a door allowing access to the engine ,but this was a diesel variant

Grant, you need to check if the pump is ok with your model engine, not just the car model number, these cars were fitted with at least four
different engine variants that i am aware of.
i don't think you should attempt to fit it if you don't know at least that much, sometimes the cambelt has to be removed first, thats a whole
different kind of level of experise required.
good luck

    Thanks for your reply Jonathon. I've gone as far as removing the plastic engine covers, to get a better idea just where the pump is....and i do think its positioned in behind the drivebelt?! Is this likely to cost a lot of $ at a garage?

    hi Grant, I think you know that it will be at least a few hours labour plus parts but

    in my experience you should also think about doing the cambelt and tensioners while you are at it, check if the speedo is around 100k, you should do it.

    timing belt was done around 80k ago, so i'd get that done too, while someone's i there!

SOURCE: 1996 Audi A4 quattro airbags install

The main thing with dealing with airbags is to ground yourself before plugging them in. Any electronics shop can sell you an ESD (electrostatic discharge) wrist strap and ground cord for a few dollars. Use this to ground yourself securely to the frame of the car. This gives a pathway for static electricity in your body to discharge into the car, rather than into the airbag connector, potentially blowing the airbags. All the same, whenever possible, don't sit in front of the bag you're installing in case something goes wrong and it does blow.

SOURCE: engine number location for 2002 audi a4

is it a 1.8 turbo or 2.8 V6 or 2.7 biturbo V6 ? on most models what you will be looking for is a 3 letter code like ATQ or APW and is normally on a sticker on the timing belt cover, it is also stamped into the engine on a ledge up high. if no luck there check the owners manual, around the 3rd page there will be a sticker that was put in the book during predelivery inspection this sticker is about 3 inches by 3 inches and filled with id codes for almost everything. If the pdi wasn't done right another copy of the same sticker will be under or next to the spare tire in the spare tire well.

SOURCE: audi A4 key will not come out after turning engine off

I had this as well, but you just have to wait a second. You can't remove it to quickly, the car takes a second to essentially unlatch the key.
