Yeah B6 Passats are wider track than the GTI. I only got rubbage with the VWR suspension kit though, which was soft and low.

But Miller'#039s 5W40 costs $115usd/5L here. Miller'#039s does state it is a "quotMotorsport Oil"quot which is the type you might change every 500 miles of racing.

I can get 5W40:

I tried to do this and noticed the whole pipe was turning, so I just stopped.
Anyone any tips on how to loosen it off safely? Could do with a bit of A/C at the minute!

Is the system pressurised? If so, and the pipe is turning, you really need to empty the system before try

I noticed at the weekend a vacuum leak at idle on the boost gauge, on checking the usual I decided to check the oil cap and the complete neck extension came off the cam cover with cap attached nbsp :confused: heat cycles must have taken its toll on the joint.

Golf'#039s been a bit of a bugger lately.

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

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 AC....as in you'#039ve removed it, or it was never f

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.

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

£275.00
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.

Includes:
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.

Thanks
