  1. hei c_a. great to hear from you. The sleeve is intact, just as is the clutch disk and bearing. Actuator was ok when i did adaptation just before that short ride of ca 45km. Also now i can not test it as the gearbox is off the engine already. hei c_a. great to hear from you. The sleeve is intact, just as is the clutch disk and bearing.

  2. Dear audi fellows in Germany, i understand this is German site, and do not mean to come rude but i simply can not write German so i will post in English. i hope it will not upset too many of you and maybe i will get some answer in the end. so, to the point. Since i bought my A2 1.2TDi many years ago already and it was my dream car back then. I still like the car as a model and am fascinated by the engine but my exact car has been still for most of the time i owned it. So last summer i did overhaul the gear actuator and adjusted all fine. in test drives was working fine. so i took it with the smile on my face to the yearly control station so i can put it back on road and what do you know, 5 km before the control station i am on the side of the road again with blinkers. Damn! Symptom - could not take off. as soon the 1st gear "was engaged" car stalled. it was not smooth, it was like switching into gear without clutch at all, i guess that was exactly what was going on. And besides that i heard a rumbling sound while the engine was running in neutral, so i made a conclusion that the clutch bearing has had it and towed it home. Now, i did not touch it through the winter as i do not have a warm garage, but this week have managed to remove the gear for inspection, and the clutch bearing and clutch itself looks very good. At this point i need a suggestion about what next step to consider. I am in Latvia, and that is one reason why i have to do it myself as few times with audi dealer was very disappointing and independent garages can only brake it instead of fixinig it (proven!) and most of them don't even touch it. I have tools, patience and have repaired my cars enough to try and get it back on road again for summer, but i am clueless what to do next with this situation. please, wise and experienced people, pour some of your knowledge on me.

  3. G240 potentiometer on my A2 3L is faulty and needs to be replaced it seems like a simple task - 2 bolts and basic setting BUT i have spent hours searching for the part numbers for this little poti with no luck. Please share a part number or knowledge where to buy one if you know.
  4. Hello. I have this A2 wih 1.2tdi engine for few weeks now. very satisfied with the car except one problem that should be sorted. While the car is relatively cold all goes well but on a highway it reaches only 100-105km/h in the 5th gear and no further acceleration. so the rpm sits little above 2000 and the consumption is displayed as 4l/100km. Even when it shifts down to 4th gear it does not ad much and speed rises to 110km/h not more. That is annoying, especially because here are no recognized A2 (especially 1.2tdi) specialists who could i trust to fix it. But that is not all, unfortunately. When it gets warmer, about 30min driving, the 5th gear starts to "pop-out" and sometimes releasing acceleration pedal and pressing again helps to activate the gear, but sometimes it requires to stop and start the engine to gain the drive-ability. What happens is that gear selection shows E or D but no gear numbers are displayed and no gear is selected. Also accelerator pedal is sometimes active but sometimes dead as the engine does not react on it any more. When this happens the only way to drive further is to manually switch gears and leave in 4th. then all is ok and car runs smooth and quiet. Also i noticed that when this happened and i tried to keep driving on and on there started a loud noise from gearbox in the first gear, then in the second and later in all four gears. but after a easy driving in 4th gear on a highway with some 30min stop in the middle the sound disappeared. Any suggestions where to start looking for a fault/solution? Casper from Latvia
  5. Hello Dear 3L-ers - or in short FRIENDS I have owned a Lupo 3L in the past in around 2006 and loved the car. but had to sell it due to the well-known issue with gear shifting. Now in the recent week i have bought myself a Lupo 3L and Audi A2 1.2TDi again and am willing to choose one that will stay with me. the other one will be sold further on. I have read many times that Lupo is converted to manual gear shift and seems doable without a too big expense but i can not find info on the same conversion for the A2 model. Therefore i start my quest by asking you - do you know that it is a similar procedure for the A2 as it is for Lupo? maybe someone who has already done this can share the experience? Right now i have a slight problem with A2 - a strange sound from gearbox when engine is warm and driving - i think (and hope) it is a clutch bearing. Also A2 has a better fuel consuption compared to Lupo. A2 is about 3 ,3 Liters while Lupo shows around 4,5 with same driving. will check lupos air filter today, maybe that needs to be replaced. By the way, i write from Latvia, and believe me there is not much of these cars in here as they are not popular at all. therefore i search for advice with you friends. hope to hear back from you, regards, Casper
