    Aircon Pulley Measurements

    Does anyone have ready access to an a\c compressor - or the pulley more importantly? I would greatly appreciate the measurements between the centres of the 3 holes around the centre nut\head\shaft. The approx diameter of those holes would be great too. I've seen tools that are used with an...

    Aircon Pulley Headaches

    Got the car (1.9TDI 130 Avant - AVF eng code) up on a ramp and unbolted the a\c compressor and lowered\tilted it enough to get access to the pulley. The plan was to get the drive plate off and replace the rubbers - which I got before. Removed the circlip - no hex head on the shaft but the one...

    Common Rail Reliability\Issues (HPFP)

    Hi, I've currently got a B6 1.9 PD (130) and the miles have just gone over 220K and keep thinking about a later avant - B8/8.5 Tdi seems to be a logical choice. But having spoken to a few mates in the garage trade, they say that HPFP failures are noticeable if not common. Whilst, I'm not going...

    Air Con Pulley Rubbers (Supplier)

    I can hear an occasional rattle from the pulley\belts every so often. A chap I know said it was the air con pulley - he pushed it side to side with the engine off & I could hear the clunk. He said the rubber thingies inside had gone and either repair\bodge them or new pulley. After searching...

    1.9TDi (PD) - Timing belt Tensioner, Pointer moved

    I changed the timing belt on my B6 Avant on Sunday and got here in the end. The pointer was set in the middle of the "gap", turned the engine by hand more than 2 times and everything locked up nicely, cam and crank. Started the car and it started up fine - left it idling for 5 or so mins...

    B6 Timing Belt Issue - 1.9TDi (PD - AVF)

    Got the front bumper off - complete pig, lock carrier in service position and turned the engine by hand to get #1 to TDC. Now if I set the cam sprocket according it it's marks (the 4Z pointer in the middle of the 2 "lugs"), a 6mm drill bit can be inserted quite some way. So fairly sure - the...

    B6 Timing belt tools?

    I'm due to do the timing belt on my B6 in a few weeks and lining stuff up (1.9Tdi 130 sport - can't remember what the eng code is, but will check it up). Obviously no pump to lock off - the question I have is, can I use the same crank locking tool that I've used before on a B5 (AFN eng code)...

    1.9Tdi - Oil Cooler

    Changing a headlight bulb the other day - I had a general once over in the engine bay and noticed pale pinkish dried residue around where the coolant pipe connects to the oil\water heat exchanger. It's been there as long as I've owned the car (2yrs and 30k I've put on the clock). Not large...

    Windows Open in Morning

    This morning, I went out to the car and both front windows were down about an inch or 2. Car was locked and nothing amiss. Had a quick Google and search around the forums and it seems to be pointing towards having inadvertently pressed the unlock button a few seconds, which lowers the windows...

    Water in ECU Box

    I have a 53 plate 130 TDI Avant. Previously I've had the main fans still running with the ignition off - temp fix was to pull the fuse, and after reading up on here, opening up the ECU box, after having cracked the ****** screen getting the drivers side wiper arm off - only to find almost an...
