I'll try again with thumsnap...

Went in for the recalled recall today! Asked them not to wash it as I'd washed and waxed yesterday.  They still did it.  I was irrationally cross that someone had washed my car!!

Has anyone else had their abs unit recall, recalled??

cannot get pictures to work!

Ahh right.  Yeah, I got the letter from VW and it went it to the dealer, and had to have a new unit fitted as the old one wouldn't accept the software update.  A few week later I got a call from this dealer saying they have been asked to do further software updates.  All sorted now though.  Just thought it was odd to recall a recall.


I had the recall for my diesel GT Sport. They did the update in about 30 minutes with no issues. Since then a friend recoded my ABS pump to work with the mk6 Golf R profile, since I have the R32 front brakes fitted.

OK...I will ask...do those pads actually meet the inner diameter of the disc surface? Because it appears there's quite a gap from the inner diameter of the disc surface and the inner edge of the pads. Quite possibly just the pic angle interfering I suppose.

It must just be the picture as my 340mm setup has good pad coverage:



Yes, it was my brief look at the pic and I perceived the little hump on the center span of the carrier to be a hole which appeared to enlarge the gap between pad and disc edges.  :doh:

All this talk of brakes prompted me to stick them on during a bored moment.  R/PP/S3 calipers with Clubsport S discs.

Very easy to fit and there is no apparent penalty from the increased weight, it drives exactly the same as the stock brakes.  The pedal is pretty crap though.  I'm hoping that is just down to bedding in but I will take it to VW for a full brake and clutch flush anyway, just to be sure.

Black Edition 30 with manually selected cogs, a beefier clutch, some extra boost and them Whiteline thingies, otherwise standard.

Cambelt, water-pump and thermostat for £303... Alright I suppose.

They also diagnosed why it sounds like a goddamned diesel. Turns out it's something much very expensive to fix. £854.86 with labour and VAT

A timing chain tensioner and adjuster. Woo

It required its third battery today. Listened to the radio while parked for 45 minutes, actually started it after 30 minutes to make sure it was OK, and then it wouldn't start fifteen minutes later. Likely would've lasted a bit longer once jumped but lacked trust in it. First two batteries lasted 11yr and 6mon.

That's good battery life. Hope your new one last as much. :happy2:

Yeah, about as good as it gets. 6.5 years on the original and 5 years on a dry cell Optima. Went back to an OEM battery from the dealership on this third one.

Been working through the engine, refreshing a lot of tired sensors........but last week I changed the MAP sensor being one of the last original sensors on the 2005 car.........no error reported, apart from lowish mpg for town driving and a continuously sooty exhaust that I have to clean every week.

Well a week on and there is more fuel left in the tank, doing the same daily trips (I used to just survive a week on half a tank) and the exhaust tips are very clean still amazingly.

Will keep monitoring, but impressed so far. The engine must have been running rich and the MAP sensor was stating high pressure in the system when it was not on boost.

Have you got a part number for it?
