    1.9TDi (130) Avant - New Member

    Hi Guys

    I have owned the car for a while now but have just signed up here and I am ready to do some work on it.

    First up a few maintenance issues that need addressed first:

    Major Service - Going to do this myself
    Front Discs & Pads - Another DIY job with a little help from a friend (who happens to be a member here)
    Timing belt and water pump - one for the local audi indy I think
    Aircon service - local indy again

    Minor repairs required but not desperate

    New glovebox/lid (hinge broken -dodgy fix)
    Rear light cluster (currently cracked)
    Replacement windscreen wiper linkage (stripped it down due to seizing and cracked a mounting when reinstalling)

    Planned Upgrades (order undecided yet):

    Remap
    HID's
    Parking Sensors
    New wheels
    Front Armrest

    I will keep you up to date on progress.

    Any other suggestions for sensible upgrades to add to the list.

    About time you posted a thread on here , although I am worried that you will involve/blame me to some degree in the upgrades.........

    I have a spare wiper linkage so you can tick that one off, although I have noted that you didn't mention the parrot kit that we are supposed to be doing tomorrow.....

    If any of the upgrades don't go to plan I am fairly sure my standard line will be "it wasn't me! a big boy did it and ran away" while firmly pointing elbows at you.

    Ideal that you have a spare wiper linkage I'm sure we can reach an agreement on that

    OH yeah and will be installing a parrot 3200-ls tomorrow with a little help from a friend

    Well that's the Parrot installed with a lot of help from a friend (thanks Steve). What a marathon that was.... Better part of 4.5 hrs due to the quirks of buying a second hand kit and the lack of a switched live, then the switched live to the climate control not providing enough juice!

    Not yet but coming soon hopefully!

    Current likely order

    1) Brakes and Service
    2) Timing belt, water pump and air con service
    3) Remap
    4) HIDs, LEDs and replacement rear light clusters

    The rest I am unsure about at this stage but basically as and when funds/parts become available.

    Drivers side is cracked where some idiot (me) reversed it into a bollard. It is still perfectly usable just trying to get the car into as close to mint condition as possible. Will be sticking them up for sale in the classifieds once I have removed them from the car!

    The new lights are now on the car and I will get pics up once the car is clean and the weather drier but they are looking good!

    I did have a little scare when I dropped one of the retaining bolts dropped down inside the boot trim but was recovered successfully with a magnet!

    So then weekend on the whole went well one hiccup when it wouldn't start after the fuel filter change but after a bit of persuasion it is running again and man is it running sweet.

    So Successfully completed this weekend:

    2 full services (Oil change + oil, diesel air and pollen filters)
    2 Mr Muscle Turbo Cleans
    1 Set of front discs and pads replaced
    1 set of front callipers painted hammerite black
    1 EGR Valve cleaned
    3 Cars remapped
    A bit of VCDS coding

    All in all a successful weekend!

    Thanks turk!

    Effects of the remap and/or service

    Car idles much smoother
    Pulls much better & is just a pleasure to drive

    Both of these are subjective however last week I averaged 50.6MPG not bad, yesterday after the weekend work i averaged 55.8MPG driving it as normal and today I went on a bit of an economy drive and managed 58.3MPG and it took me less than an extra 2mins on my 45min commute to work!!!

    Any photos of how you did your turbo clean? Did you get in there by disconnecting the exhaust or down through the EGR?

    I want to do this but not sure about removing the exhaust nuts as they look a little rusty.

    I'm afraid we didn't take any pics.

    Went in from the exhaust side and my mate who did it from the egr side thought it was easier from the exhaust side.

    One of the nuts is pretty awkward to get to but can be done. It's much easier if you remove the air box and egr valve gives you a chance to clean them out while they are off as well.

    Cool thread, funny how 1.9tdi owners face all the same issues! Did you manage to sell the rear lights? I'm looking for a replacement n/s avant cluster (though on a budget!).

    So been away for a while due to work and moving house etc but at last got round to changing the wheels over. Love the matt black look but feel it now needs black roof rails and tinted windows. Anybody blackend the roof rails themselves if so what did you use?uploadfromtaptalk1357821988934.jpg sorry about the quality of the pic I will upload some better ones soon.

    It's getting more common to plasti dip all car related things like roof rails. I've seen good stuff from other members who have done grills and window surrounds etc.

    Random question, but don't suppose you have your old rear lights do you?

    Well, i'm actually after just a small bit of rubber that I believe is at the top of the lights?

    Basically, I have this part missing. So, I have been looking for ages for a damaged light that has it attached, but I just looked and saw that it's your drivers side that was damaged Balls.

    Another update....

    Its been a reluctant starter recently with these cold morning and I have been getting the red break warning on startup that goes away after about 10 secs so new battery fitted tonight so will see how it goes tomorrow morning.

    While I was at it I fitted new led rear number plate bulbs.

    Before

    Half way
    uploadfromtaptalk1358888827706.jpg

    Forgot to take one with them both done but I'll do it tomorrow and I suspect you get the idea.

    Next up plastidip the new centre caps that I bought for my black wheels since they look a bit odd like this

    My rear screen wash has never worked in 3 years, I just see it as a game where any bit of moisture on the back window is my small time frame in which I should use the rear wiper

    Hi mate I'm after a passenger side rear light if you still have it?

    How much would you accept for it? Would need it posting as I'm based in Yorkshire

    Ian,

    Have a good idea why the rear washer isn't working (internals knackered and leaking - common problem), need to sort it asap or it knackers the door lock mech, discuss further on the 9th.... :-)

    I have just sorted this exact problem.. When using the rear wash wipe the washer fluid was leaking from the motor. I cured this by putting a rubber O ring round the spindle of the washer tube. When it's built up it squashes the O ring and seals it.. Cost of repair is only pennies for the o-ring and about 20 minutes time..
