    What's on Everyone's A4 TODO list (small repair items) for your B6

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    As the subject states, trying to gauge how my TODO list is compared to other owners. I have a 2003 B6 A4 1.8T with 180K miles. All the big things work without issues (Turbo, Transmission, Quattro, etc.). However, I have a ton of small things that I need to address (new MAF, replace 02 sensors, Motor Mounts, etc.).

    Wanted to make a different kind of post and see what other owners "small repair items" are on their TODO list currently. TIA.

    lol these are just the remaining items of a much larger list. I bought the car new and until a couple years ago I didn't even know how to remove the belly pan much less do any repairs. I've been playing catchup ever since.

    Your list looks like my list as I see a lot of things on yours that I just got done doing..

    I have rear camber bushings and bolts, along with hr sport springs that I have been lugging around for at least five years now....and of course those motor mounts..

    remove sump bolt from bellhousing and place back in to sump, I replaced a cracked sump but dropped the rear seal area sump bolt and gave up on finishing the job 10 months ago, also need to replace inner CV boot. The problem now is I can't remember where all the bolts go oh a a general lack of motivation :)

    1. Finish the engine build and get it back in the car

    2. Then finish replacing literally everything except for the frame and body panels. (halfway there)
