No idea mate but might help if you post up what engine it is and what spec the car is; i.e. 2002 Golf 1.8 GTI Turbo 150bhp AUG

Hi mate sorry to hear of your problems, ive never even heard of an exhaust emmision warning lamp so i cant help you on that matter.

What i may be able to help you on is getting more replies to your post......

1 ......First up as ASHeuro4 says .... give details of your car, ideally fill in details on the controll pannel.

2 ..... Get rid of the gay style pic of you and your 'mate/boyfriend' showing each other man love. I suspect that alone will help get a few more responses.

Thankfully i have no problem apologizing at once.

Seen as it was not meant to be offensive in any way, im pretty confident Tevez will forgive me and not take offence.

so after vw checking the car over today come back with these faults!

1- air intake pipe where dump valve has been fitted is split [engine light on]

2- drive shaft boot-right side inner damaged

they quoted me £315 for parts and labour and this to me sounds minor what you think???

They are jobs you dont need VW to do for you, they will charge too much by far.

Replace the split pipe yourself, find replacement part online/breakers/wherever it will be an easy fix.

Find a local garage to do the cv boot (or a mechanic mate).

Should cost less than half the price VW quoted you.

yeah got a mate who can do the cv boot and looking for the intake pipe at breakers yard is it hard to fit a cv boot?
