Hi these could be unrelated, firstly check the heater blower fuse I had an A4 and the fuse had melted stopping the blowers from working, Im assuming yours is the digital type? anyhow if its not the fuse then Im afraid you have a more seriuos problem with the water on the floor it sounds like the heater matrix has burst this is the small radiator behind the dash that circulates the hot water for the fan to blow in. Although the water could be coming in from under the bonnet this is common on vw/audi's just under the windowscreen with the bonnet open below the wipers you will be able to see down into skuttle panel they sometimes get clogged up stopping the water from running off, and into the car instead there is small drain holes you will be able to see upon inspection leafs and muck normally clog them up.

If it is the heater matrix then it will be quite expensive!

Rear wiper has stopped working in audi a3 - where and how do i change the fuse? the washers have also stopped at the same time. would this be the same fuse?

Yes, is the same fuse nr.41 (15A) !
For Audi A3 the fuse box is located on the left side of dashboard behind a plastic cover (for left hand steering wheel vehicle). On inner face of the plastic cover you will find the fuse diagram.
The fuse nr.41, (the second fuse from right to left direction, on the second row from bottom to upper direction, on the fuse box), F41 (15A) = Rear screen wash & wipe system !!!
Replace blowed fuse with new one and problem will be solved quickly !
Please rate my response. Thanks!

2004 Audi A3 power windows and central locking have stopped working, are these on the same fuse!!!

Yes they are on the same fuse. If changing the fuse doesn't fix the problem check the passenger footwell for dampness as water can get into the convenience control unit from a possible leaking pollen filter housing. If there is no dampness, the control unit could still cause this problem and it;s situated under the carpet in the passenger footwell.

I've got an Audi A3, 2004 model..The rear wiper jet is not working. The blade operates and the front wash wipe works, but there's not jet of water from the rear wiper blade, no matter how long you operate...

Hey there

This happened to myself. I have a an Audi A3 2.0 TDI sport (3 door). The problem is a build up of deposits in the nossel jet. This is due to the type of washer fluid you get.

The easiest way to sort it out is to remove the plastic cover surrounding the washer jet (easy to pull off by lifting the sides of it and comes off) and remove the washer jet by simply pulling it off. You can then give it a good clean and use a sewing needle to loosen the dirt. If to dirty and still doesn't work when you put it back on then they only cost £4 from audi.

When its sorted try to buy Audi washer fluid £3.85 for 500ml). This is because its manufactured finer than say if you get it from halfords and this will stop further build ups.

Hope this helps

How do you change anti roll bar bushes on an audi a3 . do you have to drop the subframe,or can you just lossen the bolts.

I just loosen the bolts of the subframe and use a bar to pull it down abit , while my lad changes the bush, or you could pull it down a bit and block it with a bit of wood, so you can change the bush safely.
