I disconnected battery and tried clearing the code in the...

    Hi, Tried to search but couldnt really find anything about this. Being a proper noob I removed the pins from the connector to the handbrake on the right side, as both wires were damaged.. Anyone know if its the red/blue or brown wire that goes in slot 1? 1.9tdi, 2005-model sedan without auto-hold

    Hi! So i got my 2006 B6 a while ago and it seems to work perfectly other than what seems like an electronic problem. The EPB does engage and disengage like it should but it still gives a fault in the vehicle status and blinks both the buttons and the gauges lights. Sometimes the park brake light...
