Re: 164 Q4 ABS Light

Hi all Well the ABS light is still causing issues and being completely irrational I think it is the module itself probably with a dry joint or something. I took it off to see if it was easy to repair, but could find no way of opening it up, so will send it to an ECU specialist for testing Using ecu ...

Re: 164 Q4 ABS Light

Just a question on the ABS control unit - it looks like it can be removed by taking out 5 screws. Is it as easy as this and can the PCB be accessed easily or is it Potted?

Was thinking it may have dry joints on the header connector, so wanted to check

Cheers

Re: 164 Q4 ABS Light

Hi Alfawhiz I have checked the fuse but no joy and the connectors were clean although the plating on the fuse was not great. I will change it to see if this makes a difference Interestingly I wiggled the main connector last night with the thought it could be poor contact and the light went out. It s...

Re: 164 Q4 ABS Light

Hi Alfan

Yes I read the post earlier but the fuse does not clear the problem

Interesting that wiggling the main connector to the pump clears the light for a time, and also putting it in sport mode!

Not sure they are related but!!!

Cheers

Re: Viscomatic hydraulic lines

Hi Maciej That’s really great, thanks for digging out the info, I remember reading your thread concerning the issues with the filter Mine looked like pipe 9 in the Eper so not to much of an issue to get made, and the other lines at the rear need sorting as they are very rusty. The lines from the pum...

Viscomatic hydraulic lines

Hi all

Well after 24 years my Q4’s hydraulic lines are staring to show there age and one has developed a leak.

I will get some made up, but just wondered if anyone has a diagram of them or even better a pattern for making them?

Thanks for any help

Re: A lucky escape!

The top mount looks to be OK and only appears to be surface rust on the base.

I’m checking the other side and the fronts as well

Looks like the front right and rear left solenoid valves have a problem ? These would be part of the ABS unit probably controlled by relays

Re: Steering angle sensor

Alfawizz I seem to remember that the best way to get to the sensor was via the drivers side wheel arch! You need to remove the liner and it’s a bit of a blind operation with a lot of difficulty getting the bolt out on the opposite side of the sensor to the wheel arch The alignment of the sensor pick...
