Feedback and any Bonuses are always appreciated too. Thank you.
Hello Mike. Checked with my local Audi service dept and they tell me that this type of problem is not covered by the warrenty.
I know the joint has popped because I can see the fluid running down in the accelerator area. Can I ask again, where is the pipe likely to have popped and how do I get to it. Telling me to go see the dealer is not an answer worth $18.
Do I take off the slash guard in the wheel arch?
Do I work from under the dash?
Do I work from the engine compartment?
Failing that, please refund my $18 and the dealer will have to fix it for me.
Kind regards, XXXXX XXXXX
Hi Mike. Thank you for your response and I'm very happy with your detailed guide to help me resolve the problem with the Q7.
Audi right away declined any responsibilty to this kind of issue, citing among other things, they have no control over the washer solution I used. Could just be water, they said. They have quoted me a price of 50 to 75 pounds for about 1 to 1.5 hours to do the job.
I accept your reason for recommending the warranty route and appologise if I irritated you, not my intention. I will try Audi again and confirm that my attempted repair will not void my warranty.
If I may, I'll let you know how I got on. Some warmer weather is forcast (Glasgow) and I'll have a go then.
