As you know we have moved to a more reasonably priced server.

I have setup this PayPal pool. Don't go crazy  :rolleye:  I think the hosting will cost 20 to 25 a month but maybe less.

I would also like to add an anti spam subscription which will cost 8 a year. DONE

Re: What did you and your MKV do today?
Last Poster: JTI in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 11:54:02 pm
Was thinking last week how reliable my MK5 has been of late. Of course this tempted fate and I walked onto the drive today to see a small pool of oil under the front bumper. Peaked into the engine to investigate and now my bonnet won't close. Never a dull moment with a MK5! :)


Re: Driver mirror indicator replacement
Last Poster: MattC in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 11:04:18 pm
I had dynamic indicators and passenger side one stopped working recently (only a few LEDs worked) so I replaced them with these smoked ones and I much prefer them. Dynamic doesn'#039t really suit the mk5 IMO, looks a bit tacky (sorry :scared:).

Such a weird issue. I would suggest getting the car scanned with VCDS to see if any error codes come up

Last Poster: DBXdarkangel in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 10:36:08 pm
I never questioned it at the time. Was only after I replaced the drivers side myself and realised what they charged me for, there was nothing wrong with the door handle. Was a dead locking mechanism. An rivets???? There isn't any


Re: Minimum oil pressure
Last Poster: BucklandStephanie in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 10:04:55 pm
And if I control the oil level normally, but constantly the indicator shows that the pressure is too low. What could be the problem?


Slam panel
Last Poster: flyingf15h in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 09:55:46 pm
Just a quick question does anyone have an image of the stickers on the GTI slam panel or know the part numbers? Guessing TPS won’t have them but hoping to reinstall on my car.
Thanks

I was looking at these a while ago. I think it was an Italian manufacturer who did 19 replicas. I think they stopped making it though as I could never source them. I’ll have to see if I can dig up the company again.

This can happen if your wheel abs sensor is faulty.. Quite common on mk5s.

Yes quite correct, this happened to me recently so check for abs codes.


Re: Wing mirror glass
Last Poster: sandomenico in How to Guides / Troubleshooting on Yesterday at 05:51:42 pm
This is age related i think - both of my wing mirror glasses started separating from their backing plates about a year back. 2008 car... They just started waving around in the wind.

One has been gorrilla glued back and is ok, and then I had an older replacement on the drivers side

I have the VWR / Racingline sports damper / spring kit. It gives a nicely lowered stance and good daily driver comfort with better composure but I think I would go for something stiffer next time.

Brake fluid is hygroscopic, suspect the 4% is how much water it has absorbed.
Ideally brake rake fluid should be replaced every 2 years - from the americanese definition below it sounds like yours is saturated:

"quotWhen the brake fluid becomes saturated with water (3.7 percent by volume), that water can boil in the lines and produce steam (the gaseous form of water

Re: HELP! - Remote Central Locking Not Working
Last Poster: MindlessHero in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 08:44:14 am
My passenger door doesn't lock at all at the moment. When I press the unlock button, the hazards flash, but when I press the lock button, they don't.

Nit quite sure where I'm going with this, but just thought I'd mention my hazards flash on unlock and not on lock and the passenger door doesn't lock. 😁


New alloys.
Last Poster: imprezzaworks in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 01:06:39 am
In the future will either look to get my monzas refurbed. My dad had these fitted to his 2008 c class and look spot on. I can get these relatively cheaply through my work,  similar ish to the edition 30 alloys.

                  Edition 30 Rear Valance -Pearl Black (Genuine Part)
                  £200.00
                  Single Image

                    For Sale is my old Pearl Black Edition 30 rear valance. This clips into the upper section of your rear bumper.
                    This was removed from my golf due someone backing into me at low speed causing surface cracks. (they offered to pay for a new valance)

                    The surface cracks are around the the number plate area which I've tried to photo the best i can.

                    The exhaust surround has been bonded back on by the body shop after an encounter with a high kerb a few years ago.

                    Other than the surface cracks and some minor scuffs, the valance can go straight on. You will need a towing eye cover though.

                    All clips to clip the valance upper bumper section are intact and there is no sign of warping.

                    This is a genuine valance and was fitted to my ED30 from the factory.
