If this is the proper name for the piece above the rear windshiel you have to spray the tabs which you can see if you have someone else pushing the button to make it collapse spray with wd40 then while the other personhits the switch helptabs move out once they start moving you can help push it down if that doesnt work you need a new motor and cables they are pricey vw bug has same one

I have an 2002 Audi a4 1.8t it will not go into reverse and will not go into drive and won't move. Could that be from the shift cable?

If it has recently started to do this it might be due to a faulty gear selector or a collapsed torque convertor.
Looking through the responses to othe similar issues in other cars it seems that in the States there are devices built in that prevent the engaging of gears if the brake laights have failed. Check these also

Good Luck

My Audi 18t 2005 a4 lost acceleration and began a gear grinding noise on the way home from work the battery light came on and the car would not move apon restarting the vehicle dash cleared of lights and...

Upon listerning to video i would associate this noise with a collapsed thrust bearing but someone talking had a american accent so that rules a manual gearbox fault out the window ,Manual gearboxes and americans do not mix that i have learnt on here over the years ,now the only other thing i would associate this noise with is a collapsed bearing in the alternator or a gear idler associated with the fan belt (V belt) or a collapsed bearing on the timing belt tensioner or a water pump but iam not sure if the water pump is driven by the timing belt or the fan belt on this engine
Another fault with a automatic version is the flex drive plate but then the ign light wouldnt come on so for the V belt area and have a good look

Radiator hoses collapse

That means they were filled with steam instead of water and coolant. That would signify that not enough coolant was put in and that it had a vapour lock.

Burning oil....

ge, not eenough oil changes through it's life. A often overlooked problem, is a clogged air filter, or the air ram leading to it. Kinda like running a marathon, without sucking in air, you collapse. The car,if it can't will BURN oil, gas, MPG.

Hi I have 2003 Audi A4 quattro and sometimes when I try to put gas in it the gas pump kicks off and the gas comes spilling out. It happens randomly and at different gas stations. Please Help

on the filler pipe their is a rubber connection pipe ,i think this may have collapsed,but either way the fault is at the point of entry where the fuel goes in and runs down into the tank ,have a good look first as you may be able to sort it out yourself

How do you change the front brake pads

Too easy. Pull the wheels off. on the back side of the calipers you will see two small rubber boots top and bottom. inside are 7mm or 1/4 inch allens. once you screw them out you will have to remove the clip across the front to release everything. once off remove the old pads. collapse the caliper, replace the new pads and put everything back togather. My pads came with a connector but my vehicle did not have a place for it to plug in so i cut them....which were the same as the old ones on the car.

How to collapse rear calipers on mini cooper

Did you notice the brake fluid level in the master cylinder before you tried to collapse the calipers? You should see a rise in level as you collapse them (however far they did collapse). If you're not seeing any change in the level (it should fill up) you might have a plugged valve between the caliper and the master cylinder. Loosen the brake fluid line to the caliper and try collapsing it again. If still no go, start dismantling the caliper and look for bent, broken, stuck or mal-adjusted pieces.

2002 audi a4 oil light issue

There are potentially two different problems here.
1. A fault with the actual oil pressure.
2. An electrical fault with the switching circuit.

If you are confident the problem is not with the oil pressure, disconnect the wiring from the switch for a period of time. If the light still comes on periodically the fault must be with the wiring circuit shorting to earth. There will be no fire hazard to this approach as the voltage will drop over dash lamp.

However if the problem is with the oil supply system, the danger with this approach is you are potentially unaware of a serious problem

Such as the oil filter collapsed or the oil pressure release spring could be jammed open/closed which would cause the engine to not have the correct operating pressure.
