  1. TDI & Diesel Forum
    Appreciate any replies and responses or advice btw... Basically have a pd130 suddenly stopped at a set of lights after running fine for 400 miles since owning. After 2 seconds or so just cuts out... It starts , then stalls.... Checked basically everything possible mechanically and seems fine...
  2. Welcome to uk-mkivs
    Hi guys, just joined the group and looking forward to viewing the discussions and interacting with everyone. I bought a Mk4 golf estate with a bora front end conversion a few months ago. It came without a grille and the bonnet was closing fine and I recently purchased the new grille and fitted...

    Anyone had any luck with any of the new fan control modules for sale? Looking at this one from Volksbits: Fan Control Relay Unit VW AUDI SEAT SKODA 1J0919506K 5055422226021 | eBay I've fitted 2 replacement second hand ones and they've both failed within a year - first AC did not work with it...

    As the title suggests, what's a better option for a leaking pollen filter housing, replacing with new from the dealer or re-sealing with windscreen mastic? If the latter, what's the best method for getting a good and long lasting seal? TIA as always.

    Has anyone filled the gaps in the stock wishbone bushes with polyurethane? I've got new wishbones to fit, but was thinking of filling the gaps in the stock rear bushing prior to fitting, in an attempt to stiffen them up without going for solid R32/TT bushings, or actual poly bushes. Is this a...

    Does any one know how to select the cd changer if you have the xcarlink Bluetooth module attached. I have everything else working, such as wireless music and calls when selecting the cd changer "cd1". If you select "cd2" it is the aux for the device too. But I can't select my cd changer (in the...
  7. Engine, Tuning and Performance
    Hi all, My Golf recently started squealing with the engine speed, I checked under the bonnet and the air con pulley is obviously gone. I've seem some guides on how to replace the pulley, costing £80-£100. The thing is, my air con has never worked and I'm not bothered enough to fix it all for...
  8. Audio, Electrics and Lighting
    Hi all! Firstly I'd like to say this forum is an absolute god send! I drive a Golf 1.9 GTTDI 2003 model. My rear door seems to have a central locking problem whereby sometimes it seems to jam whilst 'locked' and sometimes whilst 'unlocked' on some occasion. To give an example if it jams...

    Any reason why a VR6 would sound like an Audi Allroad 4.2 v8? Cat is still intact though my air con compressor clutch is shot, but even so...
  10. Clutch and Gearbox
    Hi All, I'd like to ask for your advice and experience on upgrades for the 02M transmission please. I'm going to be running this with a PD130 ASZ engine and GT1749VB with DSD intercooler and EGR delete and I'm aiming for around 200-220BHP after re-map (for a reliable daily driver). I plan to...
  11. Suspension, Brakes and Chassis
    So Just after my MOT the other day I had found that one of my front brakes was causing a slight steering wobble above 60mph, or so me and the tester had thought because the front drivers brake was dragging more than the rest by a bit. Apparently when I decided to jack it up at the weekend it...

    My TDI doesn't start unless it's jumpstarted and even then it kinda struggles. I have checked the battery voltage before I try start it in the morning and it's around 12.5V so should be enough to start it? Also tested alternator all seems good but could the problem be with starter motor even...
  13. Suspension, Brakes and Chassis
    Just recording this as solution in case anyone else has the same issue - it's taken me a while to figure it out, nothing after many hours spent trawling the net and my local garage were stuck too - recommending a trip to VW. It was tempting to point the finger at the ABS unit itself but I...
  14. Bodywork and Painting
    I would like a professional opinion of the look of the exhaust. I have enclosed a picture to view. To me the exhaust back box sits lower than I expected and is exposed more than I thought (the exhaust tip looks great though). I wondered if it the position of the vehicle relative to the camber...
  15. D.I.Y Guides and How to Instructions
    Hey! :D So I lately bought an OEM roof rack for a 3 door MK4, which included almost everything except the fitting instructions... I tried to search online for them, but I only found few pictures in a German forum... and after printing them you could not even read them properly due to the very...

  17. Engine, Tuning and Performance
    Not sure if I'm about to ask an obvious question, but... Can problems with the fans cause starting issues? Either that or the controller or perhaps something else entirely. Background: Recently coolant fan has started to stay on after going on short journeys or driving at town speeds but no...

    Hello, anyone done a eco map on PD130 and if so what are the gains like? Use my car heavily so thought it would be something wise to do. Thanks :)
  19. Audio, Electrics and Lighting
    So tail end of last year I decided one reason I didnt drive my mk4 much (its not my daily anymore) is because the stock 'sports' seats the car comes with (not recaro) are somewhat uncomfortable. Not in the way you'd think either, mines a low mileage (77k) golf, so the seats are almost like new...
  20. Bodywork and Painting
    I've been wanting to fit side markers on my bumper like the attached picture but unsure as to whether its an easy job on a R32 bumper and I don't want to ruin it. If anyones already done this please explain your method. :)
