    Boot solenoid

    I got one from Ebay this week, £8 odds, fitted and works perfectly, just had to swap the plastic end over as they were different, just clips off and back on.

    Injectors

    I use this, it raises the cetane level. Essentially making normal diesel into super diesel. 2ml per litre of diesel do lasts a fair while. Sent from my MAR-LX1A using Tapatalk

    Injectors

    Check your torsion value, it should be between -3° and +3° this has a big effect on mpg and power. Sent from my MAR-LX1A using Tapatalk

    fuel pump on 2.0 170ps- rather confused- help

    It slots into the back of the camshaft, only fits one way. Pay attention when you take it off, makes things easier. Sent from my MAR-LX1A using Tapatalk

    fuel pump on 2.0 170ps- rather confused- help

    The fuel pump at the tank is only a lift pump. The one on the engine is a tandem pump. It has two circuits, one provides fuel and the other provides vacuum for the engine. Sent from my MAR-LX1A using Tapatalk

    G85 Steering angle sensor query

    I had an intermittent problem with rear abs sensor, rust builds up between the mounting point abs the sensor, pushing the sensor closer to the trigger wheel and upsets the air gap. I fitted an eBay discussant at £17, job done. Is your battery okay, a bad battery can do some strange things on...

    Front end Clunk and Banging [ Pictures & Video]

    Forgot to say, some brake pads can be noisy but more so from hitting a pothole or road imperfection. Sent from my MAR-LX1A using Tapatalk

    Front end Clunk and Banging [ Pictures & Video]

    Generally it's the top arms that make that noise. Did you check inner track rod ends well? Some B6's suffer from the steering rack being loose. Sent from my MAR-LX1A using Tapatalk

    1.8T 190 coolant loss

    Check the coolant flange at the rear of the head, the part that holds the o ring in place erodes away in time (it's just plastic) this takes away the o rings ability to seal. It leaks down onto the gearbox, you should see tell tale staining from the coolant. The bleeder screw you can remove and...

    I've got some dame to the gear box tunnel cross member or whatever its called.
