Question about 2003 Audi A6

1 Answer

Do you know anything about the front suspension of my 2003 audi wagon (allroad)? the audi dealer tells me i need new airbags for the suspension and possibly arms for $2,600.00. is it really worth putting this kind of money into a 7 year old car with 100,000 miles on it?

The only audi/vw/seat/skoda car,(all part of the vw group,)worth buying is a NEW one,unless you are capable of rebuilding the front suspension of ALL these makes of cars.if you have a relative who can work on these cars, then great,as do i.THAT IS WHY, IN EUROPE, THEY ONLY HAVE A 60,000 MILE WARRANTY.COS AFTER THAT,THEY KNOW ITS GONNA COST THE CUSTOMER A FORTUNE,AND WHO MAKES THE PARTS?????
QUESTION ???why is it dealers will only take back part exchanges less than 5yrs old/50k.??????AUDI POLICY.....

You need to check with dealer to remove fault code for suspension thru 5052 scanner. The system is sending a fault and it eventually ends up in the ECM

Hello, I have a 2000 Audi All road Quattro, just looking for some ideas on what to do. My air suspension went out, does anybody know what the dealer cost will be to fix it or what i can do to fix it. Im...

The only way to fix that problem is to replace the actual air bags in the suspension. There is also a repair kit that you will need with them that will have the neccessary hardware and mounting parts. Usually it is best to replace them in pairs, both fronts or both rears. I would recomend having it done at a dealer or a independant shop that specializes in German cars, as there will be computer reprogramming that will need to be done and that requires special codes. If the car is not programmed correctly after install, your suspension height will not set correctly. I think you should be looking at $400 roughly for a pair, and about the same in labor.

low tech solution .i had this for 2 weeks the car sat there.i solved it by putting a tight filled with uncooked rice in the back of the boot there is a compartment on the passenger side, this is where the control unit for the suspension is having had a leak in the front of my allroad it sent the computer mad and after solving the leak i needed to dry it out .the rice absorbs moisture from around it. i found a gap in the window surround above it .i sealed the gap first .it doesnt cost much it involves almost no effort & after a couple of days it started to work again. cheaper than a mechanic .odd but it worked on mine

Hi i have a 2003 audi allroad , the suspension in front side is going to low when i stopped for long time , and sometime when i put it into level 3 ,it goes back to level 2 if whem the car is in moviment....

This is a common problem.
Firstly the sinking of a side when the car is left for a while is indicative of a leak in the air bladder on the suspension, it has to be replaced as a unit, not particularly difficult but AUDI prices are high, try Arnotts industries in US, they have a remanufactured unit which is superb. Secondly the suspension system is designed to lowere the suspension from the high ( 3) setting when car is driven for anylenght of time above an average speed ( I think 50 ish MPH on lev3) when the vehicle has been driven for a period under the average to trigger the drop to lev 2 then the suspension should rise again to lev 3. hope this helps
