A6 4G C7 – Chrome Seat Buttons

Somehow, Audi decided that my comfort seat will have the circular button in chrome, while the other two per seat in simple plastic. Thankfuly, you can order chromed ones and replace them fairly easy. Make sure you order the proper ones, since buttons for other cars, including Q7 do not fit! Parts Required Here are the part numbers of the buttons: 8K0959815A 8K0959816A 8K0959817B 8K0959818B Assembly Carefully plug the old ones out and place in the new ones.

Audi A6 4G C7 – Windshield Spray Jets Replacement

Parts Required There's an OEM Audi kit for the jets that you can order, or you can use the VW part number - 5M0955986C9B9.

Audi A6 4G C7 – Motion Sensor Trunk Release (Kick Open the Trunk)

Opening the trunk with a kick under the trunk can be very handy especially when your hands are full.

A6 4F DVD Navigation Disk Read Error Solution

Many people complain from their DVDs being unable to read home-written navigations. The problem is with the DVD reader itself and most specifically the lense. Factory-written disks are of much better quality than ANY of the home DVD writers thus in many cases the original disk the car came with (Europa 2007 for example) works but the new ones - don't.

Audi A6 4F Cabin (Polen) Filter Replacement

Regularly changinf your Cabin/Polen filter is very important for the work of your car, air conditioning system and for your health. They are very easy to replace if you know how to do it. My advise is not to buy any aftermarket filter because they aren't nearly as good as the original ones with charcoal. If you have allergies - don't even think about a filter without it :) The original ones are with number 4F0 819 439 C - that's a pack of two filters which have the best price - something like EUR50 for both. Personally, I prefer to remove the glove box so I can operate more freely. On the left side you will see a tap,…

A6 4F Automatic Dimming Mirror Retrofit

Adding an automatic dimming mirror to your A6 4F Audi (and other models like A3, A4, A5) is fairly easy. There are two ways to do that. If your car has automatic dimming side mirrors, we recommend that you get the Kufatec harness and follow the instructions that come with it. However, this is not necessary. There are six cables in the harness that command the side mirrors and disable the dimming when you put your car on reverse. The mirror itself, only needs power to operate correctly. This is why, if you don't need this function you can simply cut the unnecessary cables and connect the others to the existing ones that go for your light sensor. On the…
