    OK so I had 2 reasons to remove the coin and drinks trays. Both didnt work, and both needed carbon wrapping..

    The coin holder had coins stuck so with a shake and a tap, the mechanism was free of loose change and working again.

    The drinks holder had a different problem obviously, it was covered in some sticky residue from a drink I guess? (Hopefully!)

    Run a sink full of hot water and added some sterillising tablets into the water and let them get their fizz on.

    Left the unit in there and it popped open. The picture doesnt do it justice, the crap that come out of it was disgusting!



    Its squeaky clean and working perfect now though..

    I carbon wrapped the fronts but forgot to take a pic. You can see them installed in the background of this pic though (Pic relating to an ICE issue I have.)



    Cheers

    Glad I hadnt found the time so got a local mechanic to fit the f/n/s wheel bearing, fuel filter and glow plugs.
    All caused the mechanic agro.
    3 of the plugs were cross threaded.
    And the bearing would not budge! Not sure how he removed it in the end. Might be best I dont know!

    ***Q - The main reason to replace the plugs was because it takes about 10 secoonds for the glow light to go out?

    Now ive changed - it still takes about 10 seconds!

    Any advice?

    Rob, epic thread mate look forward to following your deeds. Did you resolve the worn cam issue or is it not an issue?

    You should change the coolant temp. sensor, that's why the glow plug is on for 10 sec... The glowplugs are not cross threaded, they just have a sharp thread which cuts into the head and it comes off on removal, you're lucky they did not snap !

    Ive bought myself a sensor now. So hope to have that in one eve this week.
    I guess ive not wasted money on the plugs as ive noticed no smoke on start up and much better running in the first few seconds?

    Further research - The 2nd one is basically as I have the door card along with the mirror adjust off at the mo..

    But this one im not having much luck with?

    18265 - Load Signal: Error Message from ECU.

    Ive read 1 post to replace the brake light switch from under the brake pedal?
    And 10 others where no advice was given?

    I wouldn't imagine the Blacksmoke map will cause any issues to be perfectly honnest, I had it on mine for a day and wasn't very impressed at all, it ran smoother but i really don't think it was running much better than stock, I've since got a new map (from somewhere else) and it feels alot more aggressive, it feels like its going to spin all 4 wheels now.

    With the mileage, I didnt want a lot of extra power. I wanted a conservative smooth map with increased MPG.
    This map is perfect for me.
    Before it felt like the turbo was off then on at above 2k. I found it annoying to drive.
    Now its just progressive boost from im guessing around 1500rpm and smooth through out.
    I felt flat spots/hesitation before through the rev range, running out of puff around 4k. Now its just smooth up to just under 5k.

    Smooth!

    Was able to get a couple of hours tonight.
    Today I received my new coolant temp sensor so went about fitting it..
    Opened the bonnet and spotted it straight away - you can just see the hint of green..

    Really easy to change, just pull out the clip using a pair of pliers, and just pull it out.
    Mine had a coat of gunky crust over it so it definitely needed replacing.
    The most difficult bit was getting the clip back on. Using the pliers made it easy enough though..
    Took less than 5 mins.

    Oops didnt realise this would happen! I lost about 2 litres coolant/water, but thankfully had spare to top her up.

    I then went about taking bits out to vinyl wrap.
    I used this as a guide.
    B6 A4/S4: Remove & Install interior dash & door trim

    I noticed someone had also wrapped the light level and light switch surround, so followed the idea considering mine was scuffed anyway..
    I lose the icons, but I think I know when i have my lights on or off!

    and then the finished result..
    I am quite happy with the result.

    Cheers!

    I am finding this whole thread fascinating. I have so little mechanical ability that these days, I wouldn't even attempt an oil change for fear that I might drain the gearbox of automatic tranmission fluid, and then try to fill the engine with power steering fluid!

    I am hugely admiring of people with your level of skill, and I'm really enjoying seeing this previously neglected car being brought back to life. Keep up the great work!

    Spotted today on eBay at 2.00pm
    Decided to buy them by 2.05pm
    Paid by PayPal by 2.10pm
    Collected at 6.00pm
    On the car by 7.00pm!

    A poor pic in some light at the garage - I went for 34psi all round - that should be ok?

    Nice work, now the fun begins (lowering)!

    I run mine at 34 and they all wear evenly and the handling inspires confidence.
