Question about 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet

1 Answer

Alternator Replacement Hello, I have a 2003 Audi A4 Quatro & my alternator stopped working. I purchased an alternator a couple of days ago and now I am stuck as to how to get the old alternator out of the Audi, since it looks quite complicated and also because I do not want to spend the extra money to have a professional do it for me. Any suggestions?

How can you check to see if the pos. battery cable from alternator to battery is good on a 2003 audi a6 quatro


You will need a self powered continuity meter to test the cable.

1) Disconnect the cables from the battery
2) Disconnect the cable from the alternator if possible
3) Using the meter attach one lead to each side of the alternator cable
Most meters have an audiable sound if there is continuity. If the cable is good, the meter will beep and the display will show a low number.

If the cable is bad, the meter will show a high number, or the infinity symbol.

MAKE SURE YOUR COOLANT STAYED FULL. YOU MIGHT HAVE CREATED AN AIR BUBBLE IN SYSTEM. CHECK LEVEL AGAIN. IF THAT CAR HAS A SERPENTINE BELT MAKE SURE ITS ROUTED CORRECTLY ,AS IT MAY ALSO RUN THE WATER PUMP.

Audi A4-how do i know if my alternator is bad or


START engine and turn on head lights to main beam if engine stops and battery is flat then the Alternator isent putting out 13.5 volts or 12volts so then turn off lights and turn on inn and with a test light check power lead on Alternator if you have power to alt then you have either Reg or brush problem .
Take it off and get it tested and if slightly faulty then get a change over one and refit start and recheck your head lights as they should come bright when engine runs evan at idle .
ITS that easy

Battery indicator after new alternator Audi A4


Take it to an Audi dealer. Could have been a bad alternator, and another bad alternator if they didn't use Audi part. Don't use cheap rebuilt Chinease stuff on your Audi.
