Today I replaced the yaw sensor using the passenger side access method. Unfortunately, one of the anchoring studs seems to have become 'non- captive' and spins freely meaning the sensor is secured to the body by only one of the studs...
I tested mine, with the leds, before putting it back into the roof lining, and it was not hot. Maybe luke warm? Some leds have resistors built in, to prevent canbus errors. Depending on the value of the resistors, they could get quite hot. Mind you, those filament festoon got pretty hot too.LEDs don’t get hot! That’s the whole point of LEDs - much more energy is converted to light rather than heat.
You’ve either got halogens in there or (less likely) a bad connection
How about the suspect air leak on inlet side?Got the FSI it’s first service in my ownership at B&F Autos in Hounslow (recommended on here) - great experience and have a very helpful checklist of items that will need doing in the future and a likely resolution to the hesitation problems which should be put right when it returns in a few weeks. Plenty of A2s on site including this lovely looking forum member car….:

Hi Mac, B&F diagnosed that the timing belt was not installed properly and that is throwing the timing out. So they suspect there is no air leak and that the timing being out is coming up as an air leak fault code. Having changed the coil packs and sparks, I have no fault codes other than the air leak. Will see on the 18th if it’s cured.How about the suspect air leak on inlet side?

I think these are going to be a popular choice for pepperpots. I just had a set fitted to Project Commuter today. I had the crossclimate + on my A3 and found that they were great especially when the weather turned nasty but did find that in the summer they made the car a little numb.Just ordered the CrossClimate 2! Michelin have a deal on (£50 off a set of 4) which meant the less-common 84 load rating version of their 185/60/15 size was just £83 a tyre fitted from my nearest ATS (I shall be taking the wheels there rather than risking their staff lifting Akoya in the wrong place however).
My plan is that these become my primary winter wheels while the chromed pepperpots and Michelin Primacy 4s the car currently has will be my primary summer wheels.
If I do part with one of my A2s then the new owner can be safe in the knowledge they will still be getting lightweight wheels with very respectable tyres for either season (pepperpots with Dunlop BluResponse for summers, SE 5.5J alloys Goodyear Ultragrip 9+ for winters, all 15” of course).
