No, they are not. THe A4 and the A6 chassis are different, the bumpers have a similar style and look to them, but they are not interchangable.

SOURCE: The thermostat in 2000 audi A6 is bad. How to fix ?

Hi,
The thermostat is located in a housing, mounted on your engine with the top radiator hose attached. It is relatively easy to replace.
Be sure to put the new thermostat in the correct direction (notice direction of old one before taking it out). Also, be sure to clean the old gasket from the housing and be careful not to break the housing... many are cast aluminum and overtightening a bolt can easily create a headache. :o)
Hope this helps... Good luck!

SOURCE: Where's the thermostat on a 96 audi a6

  • On this vehicle the thermostat is behind the timing cover and you have to remove a cam gear to get to it. It is one heck of a job. Says to allow 2 1/2 hours in a mechanic shop. I suggest this one be done by someone that is mechanic savvy. This is not a job for an amateur.
  • I have uploaded a picture so you can visualize it's location as well.
  • Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

2.5 tdi 5 cil. is good?


Audi A6 2,5 TDI 5 cil is a great car. The engine is one of Audi's most tested engines. But models before '96 will rust quite a bit, if you dont look af it. So look for rust and be sure that the drive-belt is replaced in time.
