Mk5 General Area / Re: Need a boot lid!
« Last post by Scottymon on Today at 05:48:10 PM Started by MaxC  »
Black is a lot easier to match... I had my back window smashed some years back, and got a complete bootlid with internals and electrics for £50 delivered, easy to fit, but may take two people to position. I did it on my own but two people is preferable.

Ebay has some great bargains; if it's just rust then I'd camp out on there to you find one, good luck mate :)





Only other thing is the year... mines a 55, but my replacement lid was a Pirelli 08 so green glass opposed to Blue, but because it's not side by side, you can never tell.

Mk5 General Area / Re: EGR Value issue P0401

So they replaced both the EGR-N18 and Potentiometer-G212(not sure if they come together or not)...but have they looked at the withdrawal tube, pn:03C131521T, to inspect whether or not it is stuck closed?
The code states under...Possible Causes

    Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Flow restricted/clogged
    Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve stuck closed/leaking/faulty
    Wiring and/or Connector(s) from/to Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) Valve faulty
    Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) System faulty
 
...and if your tube is similar to our 2.0t FSI, it has a simple valve inside that can/does get stuck. Mine was replaced twice...not because stuck, but for an open campaign when brought in for repairs.

The EGR is on page 9 here: http://www.volkspage.net/technik/ssp/ssp/SSP_296_d1.pdf

One thing I forgot to mention about the brake servo situation is it's a punishment for being British.  Left hand drive Golfs don't have this problem as it's above the gearbox and easy to get out  :happy2:

Ahem............and Irish.

Sorry, it's a punishment for being a citizen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.  Better?  :smiley:

Oooooooooooh must not take the bait.

You sir, are going to hell!  :signLOL:

Anyway......I'm thinking this gentleman may be better off buying a new cylinder head from VW because it comes with cams, VVT adjuster, rocker cover, PCV gasket, chain, chain cover & the VVT solenoid thing.  By the time he's added up all the individual parts, it may be more a more cost effective path....and benefit from a fresh head.  Just throwing that out there!
↑....this is worth considering...↑
You will still have to deal with timing belt and cam chain reattachment, but may be a better deal regarding cost and worth a look.
