    Oil feed line leak

    Hi guys, I replaced the CHRA last week and I have a leak at the turbo end, I tightened it a little but it seems worse. Is their an o ring on that end of the line that needs replaced or should I just replace the whole line? Thanks in advance. Sent from my ANE-LX1 using Tapatalk

    Gearbox mount query B6 and B7 difference

    So my 2003 six speed gearbox was noisy despite having a receipt in the history for a gearbox rebuild. I decided to change it and bought one from a 2006 B7 2.0 tfsi knowing that therwe weren't many differences between the B6 and B7. Physically the B7 box is larger and slightly longer hence the...

Trip computer won't toggle through functions. Esp light on. Abs light on. A quick search seemed to point...

    Metric?

    How come a metric socket set has 1/4, 3/8 or 1/2 inch drive ratchets? Sent from my ANE-LX1 using Tapatalk

    Aluminium billet injector seat/cups 1.8t

    Anyone used these and have an opinion of them? I'm fed up of leaking injector seats on the 1.8t, just replaced mine last year and two of them are leaking again. Would be worth £50 to burn the fuel rather than it leaking out.

    Pothole, or not?

    I read this article and have come to the conclusion that the car must have been in very poor condition for this to happen OR it was a monster of a pothole. here's the article...

    Range Rover Sport, 99 turns and 999 steps to Heavens Gate, China.

    I watched this video this morning and not sure that I believe it, the angles seem impossible or at least over exaggerated. They do a test on a small set of steps and it has trouble doing that and also has a cable attatched at the front. No sign of any cables on the real challenge and it seems to...

    Seat wheel bolts for multifitTenzo r wheels?

    My daughter has bought a set of alloy wheels for her Seat Ibiza 1.4 sport coupe, they are Tenzo R wheels and are multifit. The question is, using the 5x112 holes the bolt fits through the wheel okay but the Seat PCD is 5x100 and the bolts only just fit through those holes by about 5mm. Wheels...

    1.8t cold start, what do you do?

    Recently I've started the car and let it run until the revs drop to normal idle speed. On cold start it will fast idle at around 1200rpm then steadily decrease once it has warmed up a little. I find this gives a much better mpg figure. When it's running open loop the mpg will cycle from...
