    Take a brand-new bulb of the same wattage. Test it in another socket (if possible). Take out the old bulb, insert the new. Switch on the ignition, then off then on. Now open the boot and see...

    I would have a chat with whoever made your new engine map. Most likely, the map is giving a large shot of fuel when you come on to the throttle after coasting. Anyway, good to chat with them to...

    dannyAshcroft89 liked post by Geraldy212 On thread : 140 with air filter
    Danny, the standard 140 air filter is perfectly adequate for a BKD engine. Diesels rev far less than a petrol, and therefore consume less air in the process. If, on the other hand you wish to...

    Both horns are driven by an On-Board supply control unit. There is a fuse that supplies this unit with 12v, called F17 in the engine compartment rated at 15amps. So, if one horn is working,...

    Yes, there should be an 'O' ring on the yellow plastic dipstick end. It is a black ring, and it goes into the pipe when you replace the dipstick. If missing it should be replaced. If this...

    Mine has always been just above the seam level, and it runs quite happily. As long as there is air above the liquid level to cope with some expansion, I don't see it being a problem. And yes,...

    Ovra3, no it's not going to do any harm to the engine, if it continues to seep (weep) from a leaking gasket. Of course there is a slight loss of oil, and it looks horrible. A good mechanic would...

    It's not leaking, it's weeping, just like I do when it's something wrong with my beloved A3.

    Alex, I am not an expert on turbos. but what I would is to get the car on a ramp, and have a mechanic check to see if the turbo vanes are being moved by the actuator. If they are not moving...

    Danny, it could be just condensation due to the cold weather. That is water that has condensed inside the exhaust pipes, boiling off due to the heating of the pipes while you are waiting. If the...
