The pumps(windshield and headlights) are attached to the washer fluid reservoir. That is located behind the inner fender well on the drivers side I think(that's where it is on my 2000 S4). About 10 Torx screws for the inner well, two twist fasteners on the bottom to the lower air dam. Then a few 10mm bolts to remove the reservoir. The upper pump is for the headlight and the bottom is the windsheild. They just pop in/out through a rubber grommet. About $50 each. Keep antifreeze in the fluid or you will but they every year.

Winscreen washer failure

Before you change the pump make sure it is not something as simple as a fuse replacement. I was told that if the wipers still function then the system fuse (usually a 30A fuse) was not blown.

Here is step by step to get at washer pump

1. Remove drivers side front wheel 2. Remove inside fender wheel well covering (about six to eight screws) 3. Upon removing cover you will note to left of wheel the plastic washer reservoir. Located behind this reservoir are the pumps. 4. Unscrew reservoir bolts and pull reservoir loose from grommet at top of fill container. Also at this time you can now disconnect the water level sensor plug that plugs in to the left side of the reservoir 5. Pull reservoir out and you can now locate pumps. If the pumps are bad, this is an easy fix of disconnecting the electrical connects, disconnecting the water lines and pulling th pump out of the reservoir fitting. 6. Replace new motors and reassemble in reverse order.

2002 start-up problem

Hi there again

Sorry to hear you are still having problems.If you are going to change the pump I would certainly not recommend you do it yourself.If it is the V4 motor I am thinking of, you would need to get to it by removing the rear seat ,remove access panel , and pretty much play around in the gas for an hour or so to get it off in the first place.

What I did find was this on the net on a recall by Audi to replace 2002/03 model fuel pumps as noted below.

RE: 2002 Audi A4 Fuel Pump Change:

I just had my fuel pump changed out by the dealer. Here is what the letter said-

"Safety Recall JL 2003 year Audi A4 quattro with 1.8L Turbo or 3.0L engine and 2003 Model year Audi A6 with 3.0L engine"
The fuel pump on some affected vehicles may contain a carbon brush set that is susceptible to premature wear.

On invoice it says-

JL12 Install fuel delivery unit and sealing washer.
1 8E0-919-133-G Washer
1 8E0-906-087-P Fuel Pump

No charge for unit or install. Just call them up and give the vin number to see if your car is affected. On the other note of your code error '1&3 misfire',try and have it re-set (it might be an old error)and see if it comes back. Hope this helps ,and I will research your problem further with pleasure if need more help.

The filter is located in the washer bottle itself. Remove the pump(pull out) from the water bottle and the filter is the black seal the pumps fits into. Pull this out and rinse.

It's likely similar to my 99. Pull back the carpeting in the trunk behind the light, and you'll see a plastic tray mounted vertically with a harness plugged into it. That's the "bulb tree" as it's called. Pop that out, remove the blown bulb, install a new one, and then snap the tree back in place, and you should be good to go.
