Important Vehicle Parts











Audi is a great car. It is a style statement, it is known around the globe for its powerful performance, superior engineering and high ride quality. Owning an Audi gives you pride and status. Have you ever wondered the background of the Audi emblem? Well you sure see four rings, side by side, interlocked. This symbol has been enchanting car enthusiasts since the early 20th century – a symbol that indicates progressive engineering. The four rings actually signify four motor car manufacturers – namely Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer. These gentlemen joined hands in 1932 to build what we know as Audi AG today, synonymous for its undying pursuit of innovation.

Audi Maintenance

Well you are certainly taking proper care of Audi regularly following the scheduled maintenance calendar, would you like to know more? Something that most people do not do as they presume mechanics are the best people to know or they do not have the time or assume tinkering with an expensive car like Audi is not a good idea or simply not made like that. However if you had little time, you would be surprised how much you could do at home and divert the saved money into more meaningful purposes by knowing that little of your Audi.

Some of the below is really something you could fix at home, most are preventive measures that you detect yourselves for the purpose of taking them to your service station for inspection and necessary repairs and the rest are means that if followed, will get more out of your Audi and thus maintain a great value leading to savings.

You can check build up of debris under and around the wiper blades. This Wiper Bladedirt may cause scratches on the wind shield that may not be easy to get rid of. The dirt will also hamper the function of the wipers giving you trouble with visibility. Before the onset of the winters, it would be good to check the condition of the rubber portion – the blade that is. If it looks coming off its place or does not wipe off traces off water, then perhaps it is time to replace with new ones. The manual would tell how to remove the wipers and put on a new one. Try it once right away, just to feel the simplicity, you would be surprised why you never tried it ever and always relied on a mechanic.

When you are buying a pair of wipers, do remember to take the specifications along; you should get it in the manual or engraved on the wiper itself; you could detach the wiper itself and take it into the store to compare it (if the store allowed it in).

If there is new noise you believe wasn’t there earlier, you could try detecting the source of the same. If you find a clip or a bolt gone loose, you could try tightening it as much as you could until you could refer it to the mechanic in your next visit. At times I would push a piece of leather or rubber to deaden the noise and thus close a gap of an offending part which does not have anything to tighten.

When accelerating, do you hear a squealing sound? Well it could well be the alternator belt that has had its fun. The best you could do here is to note it down so you don’t forget mentioning to the mechanic on your subsequent visit. Such a condition would fail to charge the batteries adequately. It is likely that your mechanic would replace the belt and rid you of the noise. At other times the culprit could be water accumulated in the engine bay, either due to rain or washing. Try drying it.

How To Maintain A Audi

You know the wheels need rebalancing and perhaps realignment when you feel the steering of your Audi vibrating. Another symptom is pain in the arms; happens when the steering tends to pull on one side and your unconscious efforts to keep it straight. Check the manual to verify; it would have a section that helps you isolate problems and provide number of solutions. Balancing and alignment need equipment that you have to get it done at your mechanic’s or the tire service shop. Yeah, you can sure shop for the cheapest around.

A knocking in the engine can be a serious problem. Worn out bearings is one of the commonest causes. If this happens, it would do a lot of good to take opinion from your trusted mechanic at the earliest as ignorance can potentially damage more parts in less time, causing complications, more time to repair and of course more money. Scheduled maintenance routine is the answer to let it not happen after all.

If this does not fulfill your appetite for learning, then you need to pick up the Audi mechanic’s manual. Knowledge always guarantees yet better service, makes you a savvy customer and earns you respect from the mechanics.
