: Coil Packs location

10-07-2011, 09:56 AM
Good day,

I have just joined the forum and I do have a question, it's in regards to an Audi A6 Quattro V6 1998 model C5, I need to replace the coil packs and I have looked under the hood to see where they're located and I can not find them, can anyone give me some guidance on where to locate them and how to replace them.

Thank you very much for your help.

As no one else has answered....

Being a 1998, I ASSUME you have a 2.8. (I have a 2.7t) I understand the 2.8 has a three coil pack (each coil feeds 2 cylinders) mounted to the top of the engine with the ingnitors in the coil pack. You should be able to follow the spark plug wire to the coil pack.

Just for info: the 2.7 is a "Coil On Plug" with a single coil mounted above each spark plug and a bank of ingniters (AKA = POS: Power Output Stage) on the air cleaner.

A6 will be one system or the other... look for spark plug wire and follow them if you find them!
