I have a 1999 A6 . The drain tray vents under the A/c cooler/air handler
clogged. The overflow went into the right front seat of the car , seeped
into the insulation and then into the computer under the right front
seat . The computer was "cooked" or shall I say drowned. This computer
handles the transmission. There are drains leading down from the sun
roof and the grill just in front of the windshield that empty into this
tray as well. Allot of water backed up into the floor under the front
seat. One very good downpour and two trips through the car wash and I
The part is 1600.00 dollars plus more some assorted electrical parts
also found under the front seat .Plus 6 hours of labor. They are also
not sure that the transmission has not been damaged until the part(
Computer) is temporarily installed and the transmissions operation
verified. If the transmission is also cooked as well I am quite finished.
Any one with any helpful thoughts suggestions or ideas pls contact on or
off this list.
I loved this car.
