    Leak - possible water?

    Drove my car for 2 hours on motorway today. Came back and noticed a puddle under my car at the front wheel driver side. Found this strange as it hadn’t rained for a week where I live nor had I driven through any puddles. had the AC unit on the whole journey. does anyone know the cause of this...

    need a new donut ring for prop shaft - I bought them but not installed yet as I need a ramp to install them...

    I think the CR engine is more amenable for tuning-correct me if I’m wrong

    Broken cable in engine bay

    Having looked at it again-is this split of the outer sheath not just a heat shield?

    Broken cable in engine bay

    I have no fault code being shown with VCDS which is odd, hence why the garage have never found a problem

    Broken cable in engine bay

    Thanks for that, it would make a lot of sense as my car has not been running right for quite a while. Very smelly and I always thought it had something to do with the mixture of fuel to air ratio. It is intermittent though, some days it’s fine and other days it doesn’t run smooth. question now...

    Broken cable in engine bay

    yes, i think you are right, i just inspected it further - the outer sleeve is def damaged but the inner wires still seem intact - 4 of them. Question is - does the outer sleeve transmits signal or is it only a heat sleeve?

    Broken cable in engine bay

    Anyone know what this cable is for? It seems to have split the outer protective sleeve with metal fibres visible. It is for a 57 Audi A3 2.0 TDI 170 and runs at the top of the engine bay. I’m hoping that when I fix this cable it will stop my car from intermittently running erratic.
