    Hi everyone, My turbo blew after a remap, the mechanic installed a hybrid turbo however after this the car wouldn't start. Once he did start it the car revved high on its own and continued even after the keys were taken out for around a minute. There was also a water leak at the back and load...

    I've just replaced the ABS pump and want to flush the brake & clutch system entirely as it won't have been done for years. Do I need a pressure bleeder and VAGCOM or can it be done by one person manually (pipe on the nipples, plastic bottle to collect fluid) with the engine running (to power the...

    Hi all, Recently bought a 1.6fsi on a 57 plate. We have noticed recently that we are having to top up the coolant on a weekly basis. Today my wife went to drive it and said that the battery light has come on and there was no heating in the car. Can anyone point me in the right direction...

    Had a warning light come on, just before the car was due a service (the Cat Converter light in the dash) they ran OBD and said it was actually the EGR, they reset and did the MOT. Anyhoo about 10 miles down the road it came on again, as expected. Thought I'd have a dig around. and I found...

    Anyone got any suggestions for someone or a company that can replace the sagging headlining in my golf? I would do it myself but haven't got the room. I am thinking that at the same time I may as well replace the existing aerial with a DAB one instead of have a glassmount on the windscreen. Or...

    Hi guys... Recently had my timing chain done and thought they messed up my timing after taking it back to the garage they said the timing is perfect and they had a error for swirl flap motors. Thinking about just removing my swirls flaps myself with a blanking kit.. will I need to tell the ECU...

    Dear vag-gods please help me! Recently had timing belt water pump done, since then I've noticed quite dramatic lurching on/off throttle when at low revs and only applying minimal pressure to the accelerator, does anyone know if this means they have messed up my timing? Or it's a different...

    I was supposed to get round to doing the coolant change on my sisters car a year or so ago but she could never free up the car when i had time to do it so it just never happened. As we're not getting out and about the same currently I was going to get it done. I'd forgotten whatever i'd...
  17. TDI & Diesel Forum
    I've changed this filter before 2 years ago. If memory serves, it was a bit firm back then but I don't remember grumbling too much about getting it out. I'm crap with mechanics but even I was able to get it done. Today, 25 months on I came to do it again & the damn thing was stuck. The housing...

    Hi newbie here hoping someone can help. I've got a mk5 golf 2.0 tdi 140ps. Battery was dying overnight. I hooked up an amp meter, shut the car down, waited 20mins or so and removed fuses one by one to find what was drawing power. I've narrowed this down to the multifunction control module 1. I...

    So, I took on Project GT TDi, a Mark 5 Golf which has it's very own river in the front. Some say that ducks can be found bathing in the foot wells of the car, all we know is that if it doesn't leak then it's not a VW. It comes as no surprise as 100% of VW's I've owned have all leaked, some in...
