No canbus just plug and play with mine, only had to change facia to fit it. I'll look into it but haven't heard of people using canbus to fit aftermarket stereos, I didn't use one on my previous Pioneer stereo in my car which I had for few years.

I hate the diaphragm DV's...would use a piston type if wasn't already using a nearly indestructible Porsche type DV on vacuum for ten years now without issue.



Is this a kit or did you just research this? There doesn't seem much documented on it.

Quick strip, clean, copperslip and reassemble of nearside front and rear brakes to hopefully cure a low speed squeal when coming to a halt.  Going to take it for a spirited test drive in a bit! :driver:

try created, a specific brake line to stop squealing

Mk5 General Area / Re: Rear spring replacement
« Last post by DavGTI on Yesterday at 08:24:49 PM Started by DavGTI  »
Hi all, I discovered last night that my rear spring has broken. So I picked up two new ones today from ECP. I will be replacing them myself however I was wondering if the bolt that needs to come out to drop the spring down is that a single use only bolt? And if so would anyone be able to point me in the right direction of where to find a part number and torque specs? I’ve googled it, YouTubed it and searched the forum and can’t find any info on it.
Thanks

To answer the question, yes - single use bolt and nut. Can’t remember torque setting figure but it’s that plus 90 degrees if memory serves me right.

No worries cheers I bought the bolts anyway just incase. It’s on hold now tho as tonight I’ve just snapped 2 17mm sockets using a 2ft breaker bar trying to get the lug nuts off. Who ever last changed my tyres has massively over tightened them fs!!
