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

Could you not ask the garage?

This. You would expect them to run through this when you picked the car up so just ring and ask them? And post the answer on here because I haven't got a clue  :grin:


Re: HELP! - Remote Central Locking Not Working
Last Poster: MindlessHero in Mk5 General Area on Today 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. 😁

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.

Welcome back Ray.Good to see you on here..
Might be wanting a mk5 reverse camera fitted if you can find one
Can take a look, when I searched for my mk6 they were really hard to get second hand so I end up buying new from TPS. ill see what pricing i can get with the wiring and fitting

Last Poster: DBXdarkangel in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 09:53:52 pm
Speaking from experience, if your door lock starts the play up then change it before it dies and you cant open the door and you have to get a dealer to fix it.



Definitely get the codes read for the engine light tho.

Thanks mate. Spoke to a chap breaking a mk5 a little while back so dropped him a message. He has two at 45 each in red that look new so may opt for those if needed.


Driver's side curtain airbag loom issues
Last Poster: Qam2 in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 09:08:16 pm
Hi all, my family has a 2006 Golf 1.6 FSI (not a GTI sadly) and we have an Airbag light on which our mechanic has said is caused by a broken connection to the driver's side curtain airbag, does anyone know the cause of this? as I wonder if it could be fixed cost effectively?  Has anyone else had this issue. Thanks in advance.

You could have problems regarding the electrical part of the car. You should check it.

Did that today, took the glove box out and cleaned all the terminals on the Convenience module, took the A-pillar trim out and checked the (clear) antenna wire, seemed all good. Made absol

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


Re: Is my engine dead?
Last Poster: MrFernze in Technical Workshop on Yesterday at 07:39:07 pm
Thank you very much for the unfortunate news. I'm looking at doing a CDL engine swap later in the year, just didn't think it would be this soon before it died. Especially with the amount putting into it already. Just unsure whether I need to do the awd conversion or can I CDL swap without doing the conversion.

Re: which MK5 GTI would you choose out of these 2
Last Poster: Tin Robot in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 12:56:02 pm
My fully loaded grey GTI is going up for sale soon including very rare factory Xenons. Lot less miles and DSG and other preventative maintenance done. FSH I also replaced most of the interior (previous owners wife had long nails and wrecked the buttons). A bit beyond the cost of these but all round a better car.

Just a thought !

Thanks guys! I am yet to get the bumper but will be looking to do it soon.
Is there anything that needs to be done with parking sensors?
Nope,
Lower valance replacement is plug and play. You may need to re tidy cables etc, but other than that it’s a piss easy job[emoji10

I think a lot of VW wheels are sprayed '#039Titan Silver'#039 which is a bit bright and sparkly.

A lot of folk go for a slightly darker shade when refurbing, but not as dark as anthracite, which definitely looks a lot better on black cars.

Yes only yellow traction light on dash, very odd......It's like the traction button has been pressed to turn it off?

                  Edition 30 Rear Valance -Pearl Black (Genuine Part)

                    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.
