Question about 2006 Audi A8

1 Answer

Occasionally trunk lid won't lock on my a8 2006. When closing the lid is lifted a little on right hand side before falling into place. Even if I turn the central locking on the lid OFF it will open again after a few seconds. I discovered that something is not quite right when during opening the lid is lifted a few centimeters before closing again. It does not seem to make much difference whether I try to open the lid manually, by the remote control or from inside the vehicle.

The locking mechanism either needs replacing or cleaning and lubricating but more often than not it's likely the striker pin needs readjusting to bring the lid fully shut.

Trunk for 2004 Sebring will not stay up


You will need two Lift Supports. (The little "air shocks" on each side of your trunk.) Yours have gone bad. You can purchase them for around $20 each. If you need a temporary fix you can use a pair of Vice Grips clamped onto one of the supports to keep it up.

The "Boot Open" message is displayed o my dash. The trunk lid is closed. The only way to open the trunk is with the key. The Key fob does not work nor do the switches inside the car or in the trunk lid...


Somethings for you to check......

If you open the boot and close the
boot latch (in the middle of the boot lid)with a screwdriver or
something does the boot light go off when you press the little
plunger for the boot light?
If it does not it may be the boot latch. It's also worth checking the
wiring loom on the right of the boot by keeping the boot plunger
pushed in with the boot latch closed as above and squeezing the
wiring loom in various places to see if the light goes off as it
should.it may be a damaged wire in the loom......

Also the plastic trim piece on the rear lower end of the
trunk (boot) is loose, the light comes on. It is held by 4 plastic
pins. When in place properly, no light, when loose, trunk open
light is on, even when trunk is secured.

Good luck

Stick little red nozzle of WD-40 or similar, in key hole as far as you can & give it a good spray & give it a little time, then spray again. Keep trying lock occasionally & try your key as well. When/if you get lid up, give it a good spray from behind as well.

How to change the license tag light bulb on 2005 Deville Cadillac?


1- OPEN THE TRUNK LID
2-PUSH THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE BULB FRAME TO YOUR LEFT AND PULL DOWN. NOT THE CLEAR LENS BUT THE FRAME AROUND IT.
THE BULB ASSEMBLY WILL FALL OUT SO THAT YOU CAN EASILY REPLACE THE BULB.
3- CANT DO IT? THEN DO THIS. (BE CAREFUL)
TAKE A FLAT BLADED SCREWDRIVER AND PLACE IT BETWEEN THE CHROME AND THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE BULB FRAME AND DO STEP 2.
THIS DOES WORK I HAVE DONE IT (WITH THE SCREWDRIVER) ON BOTH LIGHT ASSEMBLIES.

2001 vw cabrio convertible top won't go up or down


Am I correct in assuming that you have an electric roof? I recently saw in my manual that there is a hydraulic lift that you can access from the trunk of the car. It looks like it is on the left side wall close to the opening. The following is taken directly from the manual:
"If the power system is not operating properly you can still close the roof by hand. 1. Remove protective cover and open luggage compartment lid. 2. Turn screw on hydraulic pump counterclockwise until it stops. 3. Close the luggage compartment lid. 4. Swing the top forward by grabbing it with both hands, lift and push it forward. 5. Lock roof in place. 6. Turn the screw on hydraulic pump clockwise until it stops. Use the same procedure in reverse order to open the power roof manually."

How to install trunk lid torsion bars


I have a 2006 Saturn Ion. There are two torque bars in the trunk. One has the insulation on it and the other comes without insulation. Using a bungee cord, I hooked one end above my license plate in a gap and the other end I just stretched until it reached my back door and I shut the door on it. That is how I held the trunk up. Next, I took the rod without the insulation and put the rounded loop part of the bar to the right of the trunk. I rested the other end of the bar that has the squared loop in the middle slit toward the left side of the trunk. I then used one hand to lower the trunk a little to get the right end in place easier. There is the very end of the bar on the right side of the trunk that goes in the slit on the roof of the trunk, the rounded loop that goes under that hook on the bar of the trunk, and just to the left of that loop where the rounded part becomes straight again that goes on the upper most slit just under the roof of the trunk. After all that is in place, go to the left side of the trunk near the three slits and push up as hard as you can to get the left part of the bar to rest on the lower slit and then you\'re snapped in. Repeat for the piece with the insulation on it but reverse what I said about right and left side. You have to install the pieces in that particular order or it won\'t work out. You might say Jesus Christ a few times too but have patience. It is worth it.
