I couldn't find the a3 but the a4 you have to put the steering wheel has tobe all the way down. then there is a black trim plate directly under the cluster and you have to pop it out. once you pop it out you will see two screws take them out and pull the cluster foward and then put your hand behind the cluster and unpug it. thats all you hve to do. if you hve any problem please let me know and i will help you more.

good luck

A6 turbocharged. Whyu does it smoke when it covers a 120km per hour?

I am going to say 'blown turbo'. As I understand it, they needs replacing every few years. They are susceptible to heat and incredible revolutions. They have to be lubricated, the seals go, and you get smoke.

The turbo air pipes contract when accelerator is in use. Audi A3 2008 1.9 TDi.

Check or replace the air cleaner element. If this is slightly blocked it will have this affect.

Audi a3 1600 1999 car cuts out when cold after taking foot off the throttle but once warm normally ok but this doent happen all the time. Erratic rev counter when problem about to occur

You must check up all spark plugs, eventually change spark plug set (4 pieces), and fuel filter placed on bottom right side near reservoir. Also you must clean inside throttle valve control unit, see picture below:

Audi a3 1.8t dump valve fitting

A dump valve replaces the recirc valve. Did you see the reply to your prior post on this topic that I put up the other day? You can do it but it'll cost you your catalytic converter and O2 sensors - that has been proven out many times in the past. If you don't care about that and don't mind spending $1200-1500 every year or 18 months to replace those parts, then go to or and look in the tech areas - there are step by step procedures there that walk you through recirc valve replacment. They'll show you how to fit an aftermarket recirc valve, but you can follow that procedure to do a BOV as well.

Seriously though, as I said before, some cars are fine with BOVs but Audis are not. You're going to cost yourself a LOT of money just for the sneeze sound and slightly slower turbo spool. Your car and money though so it's your decision.
