Audi audible turn clicker continues even after the turn signal ended
OK what happens here is over time a tiny deposition of contact material spreads itself within the switch mechanism, this then provides a high resistance tracking which makes the switch " sound" like the flasher relay is operating. It is trying to for sure but through a false circuit.
The solution go to Maplins or a good electronics store and buy a can of contact cleaner spray. Depress the indicator stalk to an " on" position with the ignition off. Spray the contact cleaner right into the switch in the gap that the movement of the stalk creates. Repeat with indicator stalk in other position. Give the switch a good 30 second blast. Leave for 5 minutes and it will be good as gold. Hope that helps.

I use 87 octane with Lucas Oil fuel additive. Car runs noticeably better, gets better mileage and solved problem with engine fouling in cold weather (which caused check engine light to trip). Audi dealer service rep told me that premium cold weather fouling has been traced to additives commonly used in premium fuel. That service rep "unofficially" recommends using 87 octane to customers experiencing problems with engine fouling in cold weather starts.

2003 Audi Allroad - Air Suspension will not go up
low tech solution .i had this for 2 weeks the car sat there.i solved it by putting a tight filled with uncooked rice in the back of the boot there is a compartment on the passenger side, this is where the control unit for the suspension is having had a leak in the front of my allroad it sent the computer mad and after solving the leak i needed to dry it out .the rice absorbs moisture from around it. i found a gap in the window surround above it .i sealed the gap first .it doesnt cost much it involves almost no effort & after a couple of days it started to work again. cheaper than a mechanic .odd but it worked on mine
