    CTS change on a AFN

    Dear Forumistas,

    So, Audreytoo doesn't show running temp properly. I thought I would start with the CTS as they seem to have a reputation for failure after some years. On the 2.5 this was a 10 minute job once I had stopped snapping the securing clips. When I got to have a look at the AFN engine it seems to be much less accessible. How much time should I allow to do the work and which bits do I need to remove to get access? AFN.jpg

    The little breather (?) pipe from the top of the EGR valve was disconnected - what effect would that have (what does it do?)

    cheers all,

    Sliver 2000 1.9 Tdi AJM Se Auto Saloon cooking sherry but with CD Changer and now Bluetooth audio connection and boot based Tartan blanket. Now runs at 90 degrees like a good 'un. Quality Cambelt kit fitted - next on list is control arm set.
    Silver 2000 2.5 V6 Tdi Auto Quattro Saloon drowned on 7th August 2012 RIP - but she lives on in the many,many donor parts she gave so that others may live...
