I never seen one though in reality and don’t know if they have had a separate part number.
There was no official recall to fix the flaw. Only an advice that these new door cards are available if customer complains.
Thanks for this info. Not sure what Coulsdon Audi would say if I turned up, asking for new door cards for my nigh-on 20 year old car!

I feel quite an affinity for the Murple S8 - it's almost like a sister car to mine, with extended leather door cards in a similar state. Alcantara roof too, and a number plate very close to my originally-registered plate of W208 EWL. Looks like an Oxford registration, if I'm correct.

Mended, for £1

This is the problem - a burned contact in the F125:





This contact is slightly misaligned so was never making a proper connection with its counterpart and had burned a slight hole. I straightened it out and cleaned the surface up with 1000 grit paper, greased this and all the others with contact grease and reassembled it. Mike then helped me fit the repaired switch on Saturday and it now selects gears and drives round the yard just fine

Its not quite roadworthy yet though since it leaks oil enough to embarrass BP Everything is dripping underneath including both manifolds and both cats and it visibly smokes while idling! Its mostly coming from the cam covers so it'll need a thorough clean and then new cam cover gaskets so I can see what else is leaking. It also needs front upper control arms and a CV boot so a little bit of work still to do.

The more I hear about F125 switches, the more I think that every D2 gearbox issue needs the F125 looking at first!

I possibly should have clarified that the pound was spent on bolts to hold the F125 back together after I drilled the rivets out

If it goes in to limp the instant the shifter moves then its usually the F125, and will give a specific code to say so, normally accompanied by the same code in the ABS unit.

If it goes in to limp when it moves, or tries to move, its something internal - usually a clutch pack or hydraulic issue.

There are a few edge cases like when a contact came adrift in Neil's which caused no-start and other oddities, and water ingress like I had with General Vod which caused pretty much every TCU code imaginable! Mostly though its F125 or clutch packs.

Lots of heinous bodging on this car unfortunately Can't get the control arm bolts out? Never mind - just drill a sodding great hole in the floorpan



Not surprising that the same muppet who did this failed to fix a duff F125 by fitting a second duff F125

Lots of brownie points from SPAGmeister johnny_quattro for the use of the word 'heinous'

Awesome, that's made my day. Didn't think to cut the blot instead of the CAR!
