Had a similar issue. The leak though, in front of the left-front tire was the windshield washer pump seal. Check to see if that fluid is washer fluid. If so, then thats likely the problem.

could be a bad seal on one of the camshafts. could also be from the valve cover. You need to wash the engine down carefully -don't get the wires wet and look closely for the oil path. is it engine oil or transmission fluid?

jack the car up saftely then take the wheels off .. then you will see the brake calipier turn the wheel towards you so the calipier is facing you . at the bottom of the calp you will see a small bolt at bottom undo this and lift prize the calp up then remove 1 pad the inside on where the piston is then put calp back down and put the bolt back in just to hold it in place then when you have done this put a large stronge screw driver in via hole in front to push the piston all the way back but make sure you do the evenly and piston goes in straight or it will get stuck same with all types of brakes. once you have done this reopen calp and take the other pad out clean all area with a wire brush and replace the new pads in place,, and retighten bolt etc , before you start the other side please make sure you pump brake peddle until it goes hard again. then do same to over side ,

hope this is a great help matdav69

Leaking fluid around left front wheel of 2001 Audi A6


If it is near the tire it is brake fluid. The brake fluid reservoir is back by the firewall driver side of engine compartment. Your car uses DOT 4 brake fluid.

My front left tire on my 2000 chevy silverado is leaking fluid,


Something on the break system is leaking, maybe a pipe or even the caliper, every time you push pedal you are pushing the fluid out of the system. There are two types of pipes, a flexible and a copper one, check both for leak, take wheel off first. ( Put it on axle stands not on bricks)

Did you notice any leaks from the power steering? If you did not notice any leaks, the only place for the fluid to go is in the bellow boots(the accordion boots on the rack and pinion system). Go underneath and if no leaks are obvious, take a small screwdriver and poke a small hole in one of the boots. If fluid comes out, you're looking at replacing the rack and pinion. This would also explain the excessive play you're feeling in the steering.

I want to buy an Audi A6 and have two options: i- 2001 Audi A6 with 92,000 miles on it or ii- 1999 Audi A6 with 66,000 miles on it.. Which one would you recommend?


With the year difference only being two years apart I would go with the lower mileage vehicle.But remember that just because it's lower mileage doesn't mean it's in better shape mechanically.A quick trip to your trusted auto mechanic and a small charge of $25 per car can get you a prepurchase inspection, which will tell you any problems the vehicle might have, aka oil/fluid leaks, etc.I hope I could help.....get back to me with any questions

The speakers in my Audi A6 just stopped working. The radio, phone and sat nav audio is not coming through. I can see that each function is working without any sound. The confusing thing is that it was...


I had this problem as well. Turns out there is a Technical Service Bulletin involving a leak in the rear window washer fluid line. It leaks at the rear door hinge (left) and that washer fluid runs down onto the radio stack in the Left Hand wheel-well compartment. It shorts out the system until it dries. My dealer fixed / replaced the hose at his expense. Haven't had the problem since.

What could be the causes of a coolant leak or how to diagnose a coolant and oil leak on a Audi 2002 A6?


quick method is to park the car overnight, mark the wheel locations with chalk. after you have moved the car have a look at the pavement. that will give you an idea or what location the fluids are leaking from. if the water pump is failing it will start leaking water from a small "weep" hole on the front.
check your oil as well and let me know what colour it is as well as the colour of the exhaust smoke.

The flasher relay, which is actually part of the hazard switch, must be replaced. You have to pry off the trim piece around the hazard button and remove the switch/relay for replaceing. Note that the trim can be difficult to remove and the relay/switch is also tough to get out.
