Hi Tuatahi, Begin by leaving the ignition key in the barrel, and leaving it in the off position. You will have to be very careful during the whole job as you will be working with a live electrical system. remove the steering wheel, (usually requiring a puller). Unscrew the steering column cowling and remove the halves.Next remove the stalk controls and instrument panel by removing the screws around the top of the housing. Pull it gently towards you and disconnect the plugs behind it They have shaped matched sizes and cannot be mixed up. Remove the ash tray and other lockers and remove the self tapping and machine screws which mount the dash peripheries. Remove the center consul and then the center furnishings. When disconnecting the music/ navigation system you will find that the sockets cannot be mixed with each other. The climate control is also designed in a similar manner. The single cables and micro fittings should be carefully labeled and identified on the replacement dash before fitting so that any modifications that are required can be made at the time between removal and fitting. Remove the glove locker and disconnect the air bag cable connections. Disconnect all switches and controls. The dash board will be mounted onto the vehicle superstructure by the use of ten, eleven, twelve and thirteen mm nuts and bolts, also look for any machine and self tapping screws which may be fitted. You should be able to see them with careful inspection and detective work. Once satisfied that the dash is loose gently pull it towards you. for the final removal, you will probably need to remove the front seats. Hope this helps even though it is fairly generalized. Don't forget the flash light as it can come in handy for this type of job. Let me know how you get on, I am interested? Regards John

Yes you can,

But stiill ther is a problem ,like you have to sacrifice with your dashboard's botom front side some cuts,

like when you installed your old dashboard you have to cut that part which interfier with dashboard some wiring can passed out but some fual pump cant buy passed cause if we do add some pipes for closing cicuit than its not create some pressure as car injection system needs,

so as you need some cuts from your dashboard you can & some joints you have to do but,

you can do this or can extend some pipelines for fual pumps but you will loose some power at higher RPM ,

so take easily,do with care,

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!
