<center><img src="http://pictureposter.audiworld.com/28827/a6.jpg"></center><p>I come from the 80/90/Coupe Forum (I have had three coupes, many 80's and 90's and a 200/5000 or three), I just bought a green '95 A6Q Avant that I am picking up tomorrow to replace my wifes Tahoe.
It needs the reverse switch replaced and the check engine light comes on intermittently, he had the CEL checked but "they" could not find anything wrong (I assume "they" tried to pull the codes, but??). Does anyone have the part number of the Reverse switch (for an Automatic) I searched and found the one for the 5-speed, I think they are different??
I will be looking for a right front fender, in green, and looking to sell the bike rack that it has, but it should be a good car, I am hopeful.

The "Multi-function" switch on the passenger side of the transmission hidden up above the that left side transmission mount. It runs close to $400.
If you do your own wrenching, you can probably repair it. Remove it, and drill out the rivets that hold the top cover on. Inside you'll find some big copper strips that a set of contacts rub on. These get all corroded from water getting in and the grease going bad. Clean the contacts, seal it back up so it's more water tight, and put it back in place. (Prior to removeal mark how it is positioned, or "clocked" because it has to be put back in that way or the car won't shift right.)

fwiw, I prefer the hollow ones for vision/safety reasons. I had a 92 with hollow head rests and the space between the metal supports was a different dimension than those on the 1996 seats I replaced them with. It's strange to see 2 1995s with the differnt headrests.

...I would if I had the need. I do know someone that works there in the office.
I saw your post above, do they do wheel repair?? You did not get those rims from them did you??

1. open headrests, '92-95.0
2. big, square closed headrests. I have these in my 11/94 build S6 and you have them in your '95 A6
3. smaller, rounded closed headrests, 95.5 S-cars/'96 A6
interestingly, the post spacing seems to be different on all 3 versions. audi is weird.
