FAQ's / Part Number for rear brake light (Drivers side)
« Last post by ghuk on Today at 10:19:01 PM Started by ghuk  »
Hi chaps

Does anyone know the part number of the brake light (drivers side) for a 2005 Golf GTI (5 door)? As you can see from the pic below, moisture has formed inside.



 I'm trying to locate a replacement off Ebay but I'm not sure if the part is common throughout the whole MK5 Golf range or if its unique to the GTI.

Any info would be much appreciated

Cheers
George

mine did this for a while, deteriorated to cranking twice for startup.
turns out it was the fuel filter - has a valve in it -it was not sealing properly,
so would let fuel seap back to the fuel tank and hence no proper pressure for startup. made the lpfp work overtime.
hope this helps

I had a gfb+ fitted prior to mapping with the tte420.....and it got taken off straight away due to issues ( not by me either) and refitted with a rev g valve and fixed my boosting issues so the people raving about them must be the lucky ones which have one what actually works
I'm not convinced by these I've had 3 now and they've made the car feel different....

Cheers for bringing this to the forum's attention Kev.

I don't have any experience of the GFB valve myself - it's one of those things nearer the bottom of the never ending list for me. Probably because I've had no problems running a rev G at decent boost levels for a while now. I've never found it lacking in terms of boost response, so it's probably a case of 'if it ain't broken...' in my case.

That said, there are loads on here running the GFB. And undoubtedly loads thinking it is that fit and forget part we're led to believe. Hopefully if there is a design flaw that's affected all the valves it's something that can be acknowledged and resolved by GFB.

Keep us updated mate.

Thanks will do. 👍
One of my questions was "is it safe to remap a car with 114k miles on it?

Try some mitre mate or evo stick type stuff glue with the spray as the reactor. Very strong stuff.
Even tho you shouldn’t have to.

I wouldn't have thought a loose CV boot would be heavy enough to cause an imbalance but yeah, hopefully it is that simple!  Hope the CV joint isn't buggered either from running dry!

Yip me to , time will tell .
