Aside from the front reservoir having a hole in it (sweet!), when I try to get the windshield cleaned off, the wipers work, but I don't get any fluid.
I have plenty of fluid in the windshield washer res, but I don't hear the motor trying to do anything. Both motors appear to be in place and connected. What should I check, or am I just an Audi noob missing something?
Oh yeah, I got my Bentley manual on CD today, very disappointed.

anything, you got your answer...time for some new pumps. Can't tell you how many pumps go bad in the winter time...it is unreal!
Undue the wiring that goes to the windshield washer pump (physically at the pump), put a volt meter up to the plug and have someone in the car pull the stalk that engages the pump(s) and see if you got voltage...if you do then you need new pump(s), if not, then test for continuity in the wiring and replace as neccessary!

There seems to be much more information in the paper versions, in terms of procedures. Also, seems like there are diagrams missing, such as anything related to the washer fluid reservoirs.
I'm having a tough time finding the information I want in the CD version. Pretty clunky.
I can only install the CD version on 1 computer.
$85 for a CD????? I did find one for $69, but that is still outrageous. Any editing costs for this manual was covered, and profited from, years ago. How much could it cost to produce and store a CD?
At least they have manuals for these cars. There are cars that they have dropped all together, such as QSW's.

welcome to the world of Audi where nothing is cheap and everything is a pain. ;) Although coming from a dub you understand what pain can be sometimes.
It's not all that bad, good thing you are a DIYer, it really helps. Of course I can't do anything myself right now so I see shops salivating like rabid wolves waiting for me to come in for something as mundane as an oil change.
