I'#039ve just brought an 06 plate GTI (200hp) and after doing a bit of research decided that along with a service, I would change the PCV and the HPFP cam follower.

I knew where it was, I'#039d had a quick look at the posts about how to change the follower so I cracked on, big mistake, now I'#039ve messed up the banjo bolt but that'#039s no biggie I can just get a new one for a coup

Once a spline starts to round it is a one way trip from there, the trick is at the start make sure the spline is cleaned out and your bit is fully inserted.
Sometimes you can hammer in a torx bit... but in this case if you did that it will expand the threaded part and grip the nut you want to take off.
There is nothing to save here, the nut is really corroded &amp the splin

Not really hearing much of a change except idle dropping from 1000 to 760 rpm when it warms up - its always there.

It does not sound like its coming from the chain - sounds more like its coming from the other end at the crank pulley.

Something rotating is not right, hopefully exte

My suggestion would be to take you car to a reputable VW specialist/Tuner so you get to deal with experts and avoid those deal prices.

The rear creaking I had recently were my rear ARB bushes.  Removed the brackets and re-greased them.........all quiet again, so another possibility.

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your reply. Just been busy and completely forgot to come back on here.

They told me it was a brand new rack and took them a while locating the rack for it. They ordered one and wasn'#039t the right size and I'#039m assuming its a Gen 2. I will double check the generation of the rack as I honestly didn'#039t think to ask. I should have an answer lat

Last Poster: john_o in MK6 General Area on September 20, 2021, 12:01:44 pm
check on the servicing
for an R youd also want to check if the haldex oil/filter has been changed.
in addition for a manual car (which may have been remapped) think about the clutch , even stg 1 can make them slip. a good quality clutch and fitting isnt cheap
one of the big pluses for DSG can be mapped to accommodate most tuning power levels (clutch clamping load) w

Standard 3 door GTI in shadow blue
£5750.00

Hi all, Seeing if anyone is interested in my 3 door shadow blue GTI. It is a nice example of a standard car with no rust. I am not in any need to sell however it seems a shame as it has mostly been in storage this year due to other projects so I would let it go to another enthusiast. Details as follows:

Four Michelin PS4’s fitted on 6th January 2021. Full service carried out on 4th January 2021 including genuine VW cambelt and water pump, oil was replaced with Millers Nanodrive CfS 5w-40 NT+. Both rear brake calipers have been replaced with TRW OEM calipers. PCV and DV have been changed (GFB+ DV fitted). Currently on a private plate and this is not included. Lots of receipts and history with the car and fully stamped service book present. Fitted with full leather including armrest, and RNS510 with Bluetooth phone connection. I have just had the front arch liners out and all wheels off for a clean and seal ready for winter. 99k miles, manual.  £5750. Kent.

It’s the usual storey of new baby arrival means I need a more practical car. I was hoping to keep the gti forever but due to COVID contract changes, I need to sell to free up some cash as a deposit.

6 disc cd changer but this is disconnected so an old iPhone cable can be connected through the glove box.
Arm rest and bottle opener cup holders.
17” monza wheels
2 keys.

Modifications done professionally:
Revo stage 1 map to 250bhp, 280lb ft with graph at 140k miles in March 2019.
RamAir oversized induction kit
R32 style Miltek 2.75” non res cat-back exhaust

VWR shocks and springs, & S3 top mounts.

R32 style lower rear bumper
R32 style rear lights
GTI badge inserts on front seat handles
LED interior lights
GTI mats
Mk6 gti light and electric window switches.

Servicing - I’m the 5th owner and owned since 2014 and previous was a family member:
FSH from VW until 84k miles by previous owners and then Vw and VW specialist in my ownership up to current 160k miles. It has had an oil service approx every 10k miles or 12months. 19 services in total with stamps in the book plus I have kept all my paperwork from 2014. Before COVID I had a 55 mile commute so was having 10k mile services every 9 months. Services as follows;

14k 2006 VW
25k 2007 VW
35k 2008 VW
39k 2009 VW
47k 2009 VW
60k 2010 VW
61k 2011 VW
70k 2012 VW
84k 2014 VW
85k 2014 volksworks
93k 2014 volksworks
102k 2015 gwent VW
110k 2016 AAR
120k 2017 VW
129k 2017 BW Auto
138k 2018 VW
148k Sept 2019 VHub
156k August 2020 RTec (health check, cam belt, inlet & injector clean)
156k Oct 2020 VW

Thousands spent mechanically:
new suspension at 143k miles in May 2019 as above with all new stretch bolts, new trailing arms/bushes rear and consol bushes front and wheel alignment,
inlet & injector clean and full engine health check by Rtec in August 2020.
New cam belt at the same time (which was previously done at 80k and 120k miles so in line with vw recommendation).
New cam chain, tensioner, vvt cover and sum clean by VHub 2019.

Other work carried out; Driver window motor, abs module, rear brake disc heat shields, pcv valve, diverted valve, cam follower, brakes, bonnet latch, cam shaft position sensor, several pipes/hoses as and when they became brittle, CV boots, drop links, roll bar links, thermostat, Carbon clean, Central locking on drivers door, new windscreen.

Bad bits - I’m sharing this info to be honest and because I’m a gti enthusiast and hope that a likeminded person buying will appreciate that knowing these things is better than not which is more likely if buying from trade or non-enthusiast private owner. These points are mainly cosmetic and what I planned to do next if I weren’t selling, and are reflected in the price. I’ve had quotes for as little as £600 to fix the bodywork which isn’t much compared to the thousands spent elsewhere on maintenance. I’m not a mechanic so it’s sold as seen with no guarantees.
- Bodywork is clean but usual rust appearing on arches, sills and boot lid. Some stone chips on the front bumper and bonnet. Some rust on the underside components like sub frame which is common for many vws.
- Air con works but the compressor is original so may need replacing in due course. The motors/actuators within the dashboard which move the air to different vents in the cabin make a noise.
- interior trim has some wear and tear like the gearstick gaitor, but the seats are in very good condition.
- it had a new battery about 4 years ago but think it needs a new one since I’ve only done approx 1000 miles in 2 years due to COVID so it’s been garaged for that time on a trickle charger.
- rear near side outer tail light can fog up if is persistent rain.

Thanks for looking. Pm if interested. The usual disclaimer of no time wasters, test pilots, proof of insurance needed, no agencies or withheld numbers. £4495.
