Where is the battery located in a 2002 Audi a6?

It's under the hood near the windshield. Lift up the small panel right in the middle to inspect or clean the posts. To remove the battery you remove the entire plastic panel--remove the weather strip (it just slips on) about 10 inches from the windshield, slide the full-width plastic panel toward the front of the car and remove it.

How do you change the front right side signal light bulb in a 2000 Audi A6?

Separate the air intake pieces. They should come out easily. The light box is directly under this. Two round wire clips hold a plastic cover. If you remove the cover it's easier to get at the white plastic holder that requires a slight turn to remove. Be careful to seat this holder properly when installing. This job is not hard.

Where is the thermostat located on a 1995 Audi A6?

To gain access to the thermostat you will need to remove the top and front engine covers. You will need to remove the serpentine (ribbed) belt. Take a digital photo or draw a picture of the belt routing before you remove it so you will remember how it goes back on. Mark the direction of rotation on the belt so it can be put back on going in the same direction. Remove the belt by either using a 17mm wrench or socket or a 10mm hex (depending on idler type) to loosen the tension on the idler (clockwise). Insert a nail to small drift in the alignment holes to hold the idler in the loosened position. Remove the ribbed belt. Remove the ribbed belt idler by loosening the 10mm hex head bolt that holds it to the engine block. This is done to facilitate removal of the outer left cam sprocket guard cover. You will then need to remove the lower left most front grill piece (on the front bumper) to gain access to the radiator drain. I use a long piece of 3/8

Where is the turn signal relay for a 2002 Audi A6 27t?

I asked this question today and misunderstood the first poster's answer because he was talking about a 1998 A6. The answer is that the turn signal relay for a 2002 A6 is part of the Hazzard switch. First of all, make sure it's really the turn signal relay. If ANY of the bulbs are loose or about to fail, the turn signal will rapid flash to alert you. You might still see light, but if the system thinks one of the bulbs is dead, it will flash quickly on that side and it might make you think it's the turn relay. Before you determine your turn signal relay is dead, Check all of the bulbs. Once you have determined it is the turn signal relay, pry off the trip molding around the hazzard switch, pop out the rectangular switch behind the triangle, and replace this piece. It will cost about 26.00, and if it's not the relay your dealer will not replace it. It is also possible the front turn signal lights are LOOSE - if the a separate plastic socket houses the bulb, but the electrical connections are inside this piece. If the socket isn't tight, you'll have a poor connection and it will seem like the bulb is dim and ready to die - and -- rapid flash on this side. I spent an hour chasing a flasher relay issue when all that was wrong is a bulb was near dead or loose. Changing these bulbs are a bear unless you have very small hands. Since you're going through this process I'd replace the turn signal bulbs ($5.00) in the front. the rear bulbs are a snap to replace. If I could have given a pro $10.00 to change both turn signal lights I wouldn't be trying to get the grease off my hands for having to submerge my arms under the hood to get to the almost impossible to reach turn signal bulbs int the front.

Check Engine Light
Audi A6

Your Audi check engine light is flashing is it ok to drive?

I would not drive it very far at all if possible. This is likely a failed coil, causing misfiring and your unburnt fuel will be dealt with by the catalytic converter. That Cat will eventually fail if you continue to drive it. So run the car into your nearest dealer and have them run a computer check on it. The replacement cost for a coil is around $40... a lot cheaper than a catalytic converter...

CV Joints
Audi A6

How do you replace a cv joint on a Audi?

Most cv joints are inside of the boots on each end of the halfshaft. Easy way and least expensive way is to replace the whole halfshaft on the side that you need to replace the cv joint.

New Answer

That's okay if you're not on a tight budget.

Always support your car on a suitable stand when working underneath a car.

Tools: Various spanners, Allen keys, balljoint seperator (hard work if not), soft face hammer.

Time: 60-90 minutes.

Remove wheel, suspension arm bottom nut, toe link, hub nut.

Pull suspension arm out of the front hub you should then be able to pull the suspension leg away to allow the driveshaft through the hub (support it to avoid damaging the splines)

Remove the Allen keys from the gearbox and carefully slide the driveshaft out.

The CV end has circlips on both sides, remove these and the joint can be knocked off the shaft with a soft face hammer to avoid damage, they can be very stubborn so a vice is always handy.

Fitting is reverse but be careful not to damage any of the splines or introduce grit or grime, new boots, hub nut and new oil seals (if fitted) should always be used.

Correct torque settings and cleanliness are vital to avoid premature failure of parts.

Water Pumps

Replace water pump on 1996 Audi A6?

MAJOR job because it is below the timing belt which you should replace anyway. There are great step by step instructions on the Audi forums with pictures that are better than the factory manuals! An all day job and $300 in parts, but if the water pump is bad your timing belt is soon to follow and will ruin the engine if it breaks! Sorry for bad news, but you have found out about the belt in time! (NOTE assuming you have a 2.8L 12 valve V6)

These axles and the Mitsubishi Galant axles get rusted in so tightly, that I have had to take the whole steering knuckle assy off with the axle still attached ad use a hydraulic press to separate the axle.

Can turbochargers be removed from a 2000 Audi A6 2.7T and still be driven?

Yeah, you can remove the turbos. Cars with blown turbos still drive but poorly. If you remove the turbos you'd have to spend a buttload on a 2.7 non-turbo exhaust manifold, exhaust downpiping as well as the intake manifold, as the intercooler (which I'm pretty sure it has) is hooked to. It would probably cost you $400+ just to do this, but you could get paid back by selling the 2 turbos (if there are 2) for $200/ea. You motor's compression is low so without the turbos your car will loose a 50-70hp, if not more. It's just not a smart way to go at all. You might as well sell the car and get a non-turbo model. Your turbo car is worth more than an n/a anyway. Hope this explains more than that previous dude said, "You can, but why would you?"
