I found an online Audi dealership where the new part ~ $150. Since Audi Service said that my battery range was still in spec (with HVAC on low, 187 @ 100%, 199 without and would not apply the lower range TSB), I figured this were pretty easy- perhaps $150 DIY project might be worthwhile if it's safe and relatively easy to do.

Any one have any experience with this?

I haven't gotten an answer on whether it's a simple DIY or is there some involved procedure to de-energize eTron 1st and not fry myself or the electrical components.

Guess no one has done this before yet.

It certainly looks like it. Did you try how much dealer charges if you ask them to replace the part?
I understood the warranty doesn’t cover the issue, but they could charge you for it.

Have not yet asked. I’m headed out of the country for 2 weeks so will deal with this when I return.

At our dealership, all work done on an e-tron is done by Audi HV Certified Technicians. Even something as simple as unplugging a module and unbolting it like in your situation, regular audi certified technicians would not be allowed to do. There is a chance that nothing will happen. But why risk it?

Voltage is not too high but the short current can fry a lot if it is handled incorrectly. I would not risk it, honestly. It is not some cheap 15 year old car to tinker with.

Audi South Coast said that the Battery Ctrl Management module TSB did not apply to mine. Audi Reno has that updated part for $142 shipped.

I’d be willing to spend that out of pocket to see if it would indeed increased the battery range.

@frios, do you know what it might run in terms of install pricing? Any other Audi service around LA that mightdo this?
