If I had full insurance, it would ;)

It should still be possible to get new windscreens, but it has been a couple of years since I last checked.

I am making the Q4 ready for winter driving and the car drives fine. However, the ABS and 4WD are not working, so some work to do still.

I found out that one of the relays in the ABS electronic unit is not working, but these are fixed, so I need to figure out how to replace those - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1813

It seems that the clutch/piston for the 4WD is not moving as it should, since replacing the sensor for the piston did not remove the error.

The valve lifter noise has not reappeared, so that is good :)

At least I don't have to worry about having the clutches replaced in my 4C, as that is a warranty job...

I have done an oil change and some other small stuff to the Q4, so updated the status post (#1).

There are still a lot of things to do, but most of that is going to happen when the car is taken of the road end of March. The plan is to have 4WD and ABS (and some other stuff) for next winter :)

Friday, when starting the car and going home from work, a strange whirring sound appeared. The car drove normally, so I took off. After a few minutes, the sound disappeared, but power steering had also gone and the temp started rising rapidly!

Pulled over and found that the lowest of the tensioner pulleys had fallen off and was lying on the engine frame...! So yesterday it was towed to the garage I share with others. I found that the bolt was still in the pulley and undamaged! However, the pulley wasn't moving freely, so a new part is ordered, as well as a new belt.

Now I have learned what was making that whirring sound!

So right now it is stored in its own garage, as we are expanding storage facilities - so safe and sound, waiting for new parts :)

So I better make an update for this one... Only small stuff has been edited in my first post of this thread :|

The car has been off the road since winter, as it would not pass inspection with the cracked windshield. A lot of work has been done in the hobby garage to improve the facilities, so not much messing with cars. This also means that the Q4 won't be ready to go on winter duty. However, I will then spend time getting the bigger work done and some of the small tasks as well.

Right now, we are disassembling a 164 12V Super, from which I hope to reuse the windscreen and some other small parts, like door mounts.

I have also shipped a set of used adjustable shock absorbers and steering racks to Poland for reconditioning - I will let you know the outcome of that, when I have them back.

The relays in the ABS unit have been replaced, but I am not done erasing error codes yet. More to follow in the Q4 ABS thread.

I really hope to make a lot more updates in the coming months, also adding some more photos to this thread... :)

Interesting; curious to see how the Polish reconditioning works out.
