As a former rgv250 owner, I remember the happy times when I spent more on oil than petrol.

Re: Boost leak. What to check?
Last Poster: Pudding in Mk5 General Area on Yesterday at 04:01:46 pm
I would start with the Boost pipe O rings and go from there. There's 3 of them, one at the turbo end, one at the connection under the crank pulley and one at the intercooler end.

They are a strange double lip seal and tend to wear out, especially the middle one from all the engine movement.

Cant comment on the adapter lead - but for the power, you will need both constant live and switched ignition live feeds, plus an earth.

This shape / type of radio was used throughout the VAG brands - a cage adapter to suit the single/double din should be easy to source.

Are you wanting to use DAB? nbsp - If your current head doesn'#039t have DAB, you will need to lo

Clutch out noise stops, press clutch RATTLY NOISE starts until pressing clutch all the way stops noise. In my mind it's DMF but generally DMF noises are with clutch out and stop with clutch depressed.

With clutch halfway pressed it's LOUD!

What do you think?

Holy metal crumbs batman, I'#039ve just seen the carnage pics. nbsp They look suspiciously like the thrust bearing remains we were talking about to me, which might explain the gear engagement issues, aka, crank walk.

The thrust bearing on these engines is a terrible design, basically only half a bearing compared to the usual standard. nbsp I pity the later EA113 engines with the

The scan tool output test bypasses all external controls, and the fact that didn'#039t work points to a problem elsewhere. nbsp Wouldn'#039t hurt to replace the sensors anyway if you think they'#039re misreading/not functioning.

Have you scanned the HVAC controller as that is also tied into the fan control? nbsp You say it doesn'#039t have in you'#039ve removed it, or it was never f

Door Module Part Numbers
Last Poster: Willy599 in Mk5 General Area on June 24, 2022, 11:39:15 am
Would anyone have the part numbers for the min versions of the front two door modules (5 door) or even have a set?

My car has a mismatched pair in it so I'm assuming previous owner tried to put in powerfolding mirrors but now I don't get auto windows so would like to swap them back.

Well -
I got the tracking done over a week ago, the nearest 4 wheel alignment place is Kwik fit over the hill, I have a pre-paid alignment package in place costing £150 that I thought I had 3x 4 wheel alignments in 2 years, already used 2, this time being the last.

You can buy genuine service books on eBay, stamped with dealer (or like dealer) stamps. You just tell them what you want.

I would never falsify a history, but if you have invoices you can recreate a service book using that data. You could even tell buyers it was a duplicate. As a buyer, a replacement service book that was stamped up, with supporting invoices, would be fi

Welcome  :happy2:

Sounds like your car has been treated well.  Don't spoil her too much though as they can be ungrateful wenches at times.

It was probably me who put you off the RacingLine intake :grin:  I'm glad my dissatisfied ramblings got to at least one person :grin:


RNS 510 with Bluetooth module, loom, mic and GPS antenna
Location: Faversham, Kent
Postage: £0.00
Delivery Only

Hi all

My complete RNS 510 kit is for sale, purchased when my other unit failed but no longer required, as I now have a Discover Media. This is the LED (Star button) version and has also been upgraded to a 64GB SSD and repartitioned to allow 30GB of media and plenty for maps. It runs a little quicker than the original HDD but is also cooler and more reliable in a cars bumpy environment. Great unmarked screen and good overall condition. £325 is more than fair with all the extras, so no offers.

Latest maps v17 Western Europe maps (8557) and running 5238 firmware.

RNS 510 LED with SSD upgrade and latest maps as described above
Bluetooth module (mounting tabs cut off so it would fit behind the Climate Control panel, so no need to run wires under the passenger seat).
Bluetooth wiring loom + Genuine mic
GPS Antenna

Everything you need to get going, just some coding required with VCDS to enable all the features (plenty of info available online).

Free delivery and payment by Paypal "friends and family". I reserve the right not to sell to newly registered members to help avoid fraud.

PM me if you're interested. Once payment is received it will be marked as SOLD so if it's not then it's still available.
