Most Audi A4 B6/B7 engines come “naked” from the factory. As a result, rain and debris can penetrate and harm the motor. The engine bay doesn’t look too good as a result, either. The extremely simple method of installing Audi OEM engine covers, described below, will help you dress up and protect your engine in less than 5 minutes! Beat that.
2002–2008 Audi A4 B6/B7
- Rain Tray Cover (Part # 8E181944701C)
- Battery Cover (Part # 8E1819422A01C)
- Left Engine Compartment Cover (Part # 8E0103927F)
Remove the weather stripping that goes across the engine bay and small engine cover to make room for the new covers.
Install the rain tray cover and secure it with the weather stripping.
Snap the battery cover onto the rain tray cover.
Install the left engine compartment cover. It should just sit in place. Some folks like to secure it with OEM bolts and hardware but it’s perfectly fine without them.
You are done! Enjoy your dressy and protected engine bay.
