Copper grease is made up of copper filings - so not ideal between disc and hub.
ceramic grease or nothing would be better choices.

And that's the thing with MK5s.  Yes they break, but when they do, most of it is fairly inexpensive and easy-ish to get at.  Anyone with an S4, S6, RS5 etc.  Engine out job to do literally ANYTHING on it.

You were pretty much bang on Pudding.. the VW specialists plugged it in and said it had 2 fault codes relating to the HPFP but said they weren’t serious and cleared them. He said it could be a sign it’s on its way out or it could be because I had put normal 95ron petrol in it (usually put momentum in but couldnt get anything above 95 in the mountains of north wales haha).

Hopefully the cars sorted when I get back.


Genuine belt,  water pump and cam follower too.  Get it mot'd and advertise if when I get home.  Id not driven it for over a week until this morning as I've been using an octavia diesel.  The golf drives so well and feels like a rocket ship in comparison ha ha.

Damping adjustment is very useful for track work. nbsp Whack it up to the max on track, dial it back again for the journey home nbsp :happy2:

Sounds like the PSS10s are more suitable for your needs. nbsp Maybe sell the PSS9s to help fund them?

ARBs can help but they add to the spring rate also in the corners, which isn'#039t pleasant if they are at max stiffness and one w

Hi All, new here.
I have a MK5 GTI DSG from new ( 57 plate). I am finally going to sell her but I'#039m not sure if to spend some money "quotcleaning"quot her up ....needs alloys diamond cutting and the front wings have a few stone chips etc.....or sell her as is. I have had her serviced every time the display tells me to but at a local garage ( after the initial 3 times)

Hi all. I have recently developed this exact issue. The whole reverse thing makes no sense to me but is is happening. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

My girlfriend was driving the car today and as we were on a dual carriageway doing about 60 the gearbox started dropping gears and slowing the car down. I put the stick into manual and told her to change up with the paddles but it kept undoing it and dropping it down! Luckily there was a lay by coming up so we pulled in there and the car slowed itself to a complete stop and the eng

Re: Pretty bad PCV…
Last Poster: ROH ECHT in Mk5 General Area on August 14, 2022, 04:51:34 pm
Given the amount of buildup where the tube connects to the PCV from the filter assembly, I imagine there is much more at the lower end of the tube, and inside the primary separator. You can clean the tube when removed, but the separator would need to be removed. And still, after soaking it, you wouldn'#039t know how clean it is inside for it being a sealed unit. I would just replace i

Location: Faversham, Kent
Postage: £0.00

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.
