    A used loom form a scrap yard would cost you in the region of £30 i would think. Either use it to replace the whole thing, or cut n splice out the bad bits.

    Not hard to do IMHO

    Coil wiring? Not the coils themselves then?

    i dont think it was any of the coils failing, but i am not very good at anything under the bonnet as i seem to do more damage than good... i was worried the engine would need replacing and after abit of research read that the 1.8t engines fail due to a blockage somewhere near the fuel pump (filters?). i had to replace one for an old mk4 golf 2 years back and if anyone thinks this is true how could i get it cleaned?
