2006 A4 clicking noise behind dashboard

Just bought 2006 A4 2.0T Quatro w/ about 32,000 miles. While sitting in car w/ running, I can hear a quiet clicking type noise, can be in park or drive while this is happening and almost sounds like it's coming from behind the spedometer area.

    Hey thanks Wiz, I realize I could have been a little more descriptive w/ my problem and I am taking it to the dealer. I just thought I would do a little investigating on my own. I bought the car 2 weeks ago and don't want to be stuck paying for an issue that was created by a previous owner. Also, I tend to find that when walking into a car dealership as a 26 year old female, most men assume little girls have no idea what they're talking about when it comes to cars and aren't much help in the end anyways.

    I have the same clicking noise.  Took to dealer twice in last year (27K and 32K miles approx).  At 32K it was also in for dead battery which they were unable to diagnose (I had charged before bringing in).  Now in for other work at 37K and asked to look for clicking noise again.  Got call saying battery was low.  They say that clicking is probably caused by low battery and that it w/b $200+ for new battery that they "believe" will correct clicking.  Disappointed that clicking noise and battery connection was not made earlier and that it will be $200+ for battery...

    then educate yourself about cars, it is the 2nd most money u ever spend other than a new house. Start by buying a factory service manual, u can find them on ebay, read it. I became a mech because i don't trust other people fixing my cars.

    do u have any idea how hard it is to diagnose a noise like this from a keyboard? take it to the dealer and have them listen, that is your best course of action.

SOURCE: Oil for 2007 AUDI A4 2.0t Quatro

The best balance of price, quality, availability that I have found is Mobil1 synthetic - it's on Audi's approved oils list. With the 2.0T engine, you absolutely want to use synthetic (the Audi turbo fours are known for oil sludge issues), and you want to do a SeaFoam treatment every 15k miles or so - that combination will keep your engine in great running shape.

Where is horn located on 2003 chevy caviler


Horn(s) are typically located under the hood, behind and near the headlight assembly. It is not uncommon for a horn to stop working over time. It is also not unlikely that horn button in the steering column fails. To verify that the button is working, get the car to a very quiet location. Turn off all radios, blowers, etc. to make the car interior as quiet as possible. When you press the horn button, listen for a "click" noise from under the dashboard. This is the horn relay. If that happens, you know that the button(s) in the steering wheel are ok. If you don't hear the click, then the horn button or the horn relay may be the cause of the horn not working.

How often does the timing belt have to be changed on a 2004 V40 1.9 4cyl?


Do it at 60,000 miles, it is cheaper than a damaged engine-Volvo had different recommendations:
All models - 1999MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner every 80,000 miles or 8 years.
1,6/1,8/2,0 - 2000-01MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
90,000 miles/8 years.
186,000 miles/16 years.
1,9T/2,0T - 2000MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
66,000 miles/6 years.
138,000 miles/12 years.
210,000 miles/18 years.
2,0T - 2001MY: Replacement of timing belt and tensioner at the following intervals:
90,000 miles/8 years.
186,000 miles/16 years.
All models - 2002MY : Replacement of timing belt and tensioner every 96,000 miles or 8 years.
The previous use and service history of the vehicle must always be taken into account.

1998 audi a4 quatro - where is the coolant part in


CTS is at the back of the engine, behind and below the passenger side cylinder head, beneath the intake pipe going from the mass airflow sensor to the throttle body. It's either black or blue in your car, has four wires coming off the connector plugged into the top of it, and has a retaining clip that holds it as well. Get a new clip when you buy the sensor - they're plastic and break easily.

Heater in dash makes clicking noise, stopped no heat


The clicking noise you are hearing is the temp door actuator. It is located in the center of the dash. If you look behind the radio from the Passenger side of the van you will see a white square box with a black or green connector in it. Remove the connector and then remove screws that hold the actuator in place. Install a new actuator and reconnect the wire connector. This should take care of your problem and your heater will be fixed. I hope this was helpful.
