Consumer Review Video - 2001 Audi A3 TDI 1.9L 4 Cyl. Turbo Diesel

Car Displayed: 2001 Audi A3 TDI 1.9L 4 Cyl. Turbo Diesel

The 2001 Audi A3 TDI is easy to maintain. Nearly all of the headlights are accessible without the use of tools, which should allow for fairly reliable bulb changes. The same goes for the tail lights, as they are all located in a single bulb assembly that shouldn’t be a problem to remove. The power steering reservoir also has easy access that will allow you to monitor the fluid level without hassle.

However, the 2001 Audi A3 TDI does have a few challenging procedures. Accessing the battery may be a problem, as you will have to remove a large cover and make a long, cramped reach for the bracket. A tool will be necessary to remove the engine air filter housing, which won’t make for reliable filter changes. The cabin air filter is also in a tight location that will require multiple panel removals before it can be accessed.
