Project Squeak

I think you need to make an appointment Louis and explain ‘Doctor, doctor, I keep acquiring Audi A2’s.....can you help.....is there a cure?’
And if you get some answers it might also help a few others on here!
What constitutes to many 🤔
1 you have good taste
2 a real enthusiast
3 or more ..one flew over the cuckoos next ..yup straight jacket
Hang on I’ve got 3 make that 4 or more 😬

@A2 Louis "I also need to get the EML off what is probably going to cost around £500 minimum as it’s a FSI and they all love mechanics 😅 "
May I suggest you do that first before you spend anytime and money on all the other nice and rewarding things you wish to do, there is an old management book called "Eat The Frog", basically always do the hardest thing first you get the biggest benefit that way. Or if it all goes wrong then you have the least to loose. Best of luck and I'm looking forward to following the project!

The plans for project Squeak are

Fit Red or black leather seats

Fit Audi A1 steering wheel

Fit original radio with mint buttons or sat nav

Fit a new light switch

Fit a new passenger window switch

Fit new toggle switch

Fit new driver window switch

Fit new gear stick

Ask Tom @timmus to fit fog lights and maybe cruise control

New floor mats

Clean the engine

Give the car a full major service using Mann filters and castrol 5W-30 oil

Give Squeak a full detail

Get a new Cambelt and water pump fitted and maybe get the thermostat and death pipe done at the same time I’ll also get the intake manifold cleaned

I’ve also just ordered a new lower intake manifold because I’m 70% sure the original would have snapped 🤔

I also need to get a fresh MOT on him :)

I need to Refurbish the lights too :)

Less than a week now until he arrives and I can’t wait :);)

Hi everyone does anyone know the silver colour code Audi used for painting the Audi S3/S4 wing mirror shells ? :)

Thanks :)

Update everyone. I’ve searched around and apparently there is no paint code for the mirrors so my question is I’ve seen some people on here paint there mirror shells silver but what paint did you use to paint them ?

Did you lacquer them?

What grit sand paper did you use to sand them down ?

Thanks :)

The Audi s3/s4 have a mirror like, chrome wing mirrors,i did own a s3 years ago and dont think they where painted I'm sure they where chromed.You could paint yours and highly lacquer them to get a similar effect

Hi everyone what is the best stuff to use to clean the flaps on the lower intake manifold as I’ve ordered a new one and as usual it’s caked up in carbon :confused:

I used intake cleaner last time but didn’t seem to do anything 🤔🤔🤔

Also how do you take the flaps out completely?

unfortunately the intake manifold has been sat outside in the rain so it has some corrosion where the gaskets go/sit so how do you also remove that ?

When I take the manifold off I’m going to put my sensors off my old manifold on to the new one as I’m sure they will be all broken on the new one as it’s been in the rain :rolleyes:

Not right now no, but I always look out for them ... I do have RNS-E and an A1 MFSW with correct buttons.
Oh ok no problem bud :)

Just send me a PM when you get one in with your next breaker and I’m sure I’ll take it off your hands :);)

Regarding the steering wheel please send me a PM :)

Thanks :)

S4 wing mirrors are aluminium and not painted just polished finish..........just use some silver paint close to natural aluminium, should give a reasonable effect
