    I did the grille the other day, came out good I think. Still to machine polish the car, but keep forgetting to get goo for the polisher.

    snd I found my boot sticker a,most bloody unreadable, will have to use the service book instead:

    then I found this: (the detached purple plug - not the frayed cloth on the vac pipe)

    Anyone know what the hell that plugs into? I know its vague, but by the look of it, its been plugged into something as its so clean inside, but I cant see anything it could plug into...dammit.

    Saying that, it was dark under the engine and i didnt have me torch charged...pictures were taken wi the flash (engine bay ones anyway)

    that plugs in to the sensor on the underside of the hard inlet pipe that runs along the top back of the engine. The n18 is on the right hand side as you look at it and the other sensor (think it's maybe inlet temp) is on the left of the square mounting in the middle. plug goes on from the bottom.

    yep will do, cheers Ras :)

    I checked again, the IAT has a plug, identical to the loose one, its actually G72 (Inlet manifold temp sensor) code im getting already, swapped them anyway, cleared then scanned and got no IMTS missing, this time its EGR N18....but thats there and has a plug. I put it back the way it was, its weird, cant see any other sensor it can go into, and the IAT is in, can't see this IMTS anywhere, grrr....lol


    EDIT wait im getting myself confused, the IMTS on the tdi is the same as the IAT on the petrol. I just need to look t the wire colours to see what plug is for what, I have the current flow diagrams for the AFN engine (what mines supposed to be) - will check and see...

    I painted the insides of the Valeo Facelift lights black on my old car. Looked good.

    Will dig out some pics tomorrow.
