Question about 2002 Audi A6
How do i read the settings from my Dot Matrix screen on the Instrument panel of my 2002 A6 the actual scren is broken but i can make out pretty much everything on it but when in drive all i can see is my MPG avg, the radio station and what gear i am in. I was not sure if there was anything else that i was missing from the screen and also how do i cycle through the screen to get instantaneous mpg and miles till empty thanks. Also i was wondering what the ESP button right above my radio did. Thanks Again

I just posted a solution for this problem. It comes straight from the radio manual. The dealer should have told you this. If you want him to do it he'll charge money for his time. IF YOU LOST YOUR CODE. THE DEALER CAN HELP YOU OR IF YOU HAVE YOUR 4 DIGIT CODE:

There is no button to open the gas door from the inside of the car. As long as the doors are unlocked, you should be able to push in the far right side of the gas door and the left side will pop open. I too spent hours looking for this non existent button..I went as far as to going back to the car dealership.

Here you will see the left headlight we are going to take out, but the same procedure can be applied also to the right one (click will open a bigger photo in a new window)
First, remove the cover circled in green (just take it, it is not fixed with screws), then, with a Torx screwdriver, remove the two screws circled in red
Under (yes, almost hidden) the cables circled in red and yellow there are two more Torx screws, you don't need to unscrew them all, only make 2 or 3 rounds
Particular of the screws under the circles in the previous photo (sorry for the bad focus)
Last, we have to remove the power connector. To remove it, pull the little plastic block lever circled in green and then, while holding it, pull out the whole connector (in red). After that the headlight is free, and you can take it out from the chassis
Et voila', headlight removed :) Red circles are for the vertical offset control, don't touch them unless you know what you're doing. Lights are located under the black plastic covers

Do a three-part Seafoam treatment to see if it helps. You can buy Seafoam at a parts store or in the auto section of walmart. Get two cans.
Pour one entire can into the gas tank. This will clean the tank, lines, filter, injector pintles, etc.
With the other can, pour half into the oil, drive 60 miles or so, and change the oil and filter. This will remove oil sludge, varnishes, and deposits.
Remove the vacuum line from the vacuum pump on the back of the engine (or any other vacuum line into the engine), start the car, and with someone holding about 2000 RPM on the engine, allow the engine to **** up the last half can of Seafoam. It will stumble and run rough. Let it run for about 10 seconds after the Seafoam is sucked up. Then shut it down for 10-15 minutes so the Seafoam can go to work breaking down the carbon deposits in the engine's vacuum system. Then restart the car, let it idle for a couple minutes, then rev it several times to 4-5000 RPM. You should be seeing a LOT of smoke out the back of the car. Let it idle again and rev it up every couple minutes. Do this until you're not seeing much or any smoke. A little bit the next time you drive is fine - it'll finish burning off.
I've done this on many cars (most of them Audis) and it's made nice differences in smoothness, economy, and a little power even.
Also, make sure your other fluids are topped off, your air filter is clear and clean, the tires are inflated properly, and that you have no stored codes in the computer (stop at AutoZone and ask them to scan the ECU for codes - some latent codes won't trip a check-engine light but can alter the car's performance).
