    I like the first one but I cant get it on the loom without detaching the complete loom!

    I think the best bet is to wrap it in the VAG fabric tape (the stuff found under the bonnet) but i'm worried it may cause more rattles with no foam

    Take your Audi to pieces and tell me what they use 18 years later

    Got back home yesterday in the glorious sunshine, unfortunately the car was jerking at lowish revs and sounds like its lost a cylinder

    Contacted Vince at Stealth, he reckons it sounds like a coil pack but i probably shouldn't drive over an hour to Stealth if it is.

    So my options, take it to a local garage or try and do it myself . . . . .how easy is it? I've searched the forum and cant find much apart from buying options, Beru being the favored purchase.

    Is it a simple bolt on bolt off job or is there more to it?

    Extremely simple, 4 Allen headed bolts, will take you 10mins.

    Its quite simple, you need to remove the black engine cover and disconnect the ht leads and the connector to the coilpack. If it were in the haynes manual i'd rate it as a 1 spanner job

    I'd check each lead first - with the engine running pull each lead in turn to see if it makes any difference. If not, you know that one is faulty. Take the plug out and look to see if its oily (ie nothing is being burnt during the ignition cycle). Try swopping plugs (maybe they're gunged up and need a clean). I've got some spare leads (individual), if you need them.

    Be careful playing with HT leads with engine running, you can get shocked by them

    Thanks guys, much appreciated. I'll give it a go this weekend.

    When i pull the leads out to test them, can this be at either end (spark plug or coil pack) and do i pull out the plug whilst the engine is still running, rather than stop starting the engine?
