    EGR and Throttle body cleaning

    I'm aware there's a problem with swirl flap linkages/motors that throw up a fault. Is that an area I need to be particularly careful around

    EGR and Throttle body cleaning

    Noticed a sudden increase in fuel comsumption for some reason, thinking this might at least help. Usually get 60 miles before it comes off the full mark but done that distance and it's just above 3/4 full

    EGR and Throttle body cleaning

    Hi all! I wondered if there's a comprehensive guide to cleaning throttle body, EGR and inlet manifolds available? Also what sort of level is the risk. Is it a fairly safe job without risk of breaking bits Many thanks Dave

    Performance diesel plus redex

    I usually use BP ultimate or shell vpower nitro diesel. Will it have any adverse effects adding redex to "performance" diesels?

    LED lighting upgrade

    Sorry maybe a little confusion. I've also got the lighting kit same as yours. Was just looking at an option to replace/upgrade the LED's to maybe something a little brighter. It can be dimmed through MMI but even at its brightest I'd like it a little brighter. Plus the LED's on the underside of...

    Unexplained droning

    So unexplained droning is now explained. Rear diff is "terminal" according to specialist. Managed to source a factory reject part. Not fitted to car, done 0 Kms. £350 Much better than the £3.5k for a brand new part and with this part having a 12 month guarantee its well worth the risk

    Unexplained droning

    Even if the car was in neutral rather than park? My concern was more that I thought the opposite side should be spinning rather than the propshaft. Had wanted to get it into a garage today but it looks more like maybe tomorrow now or Monday since I'm currently on nights

    Unexplained droning

    Think next task is to drop the oil and check the condition. Hot is not being able to hold my palm against the diff for more than a couple seconds before it becomes unbearable. With the front windows down its also possible to hear a constant scraping/friction sound, almost like a stone stuck in...

    Unexplained droning

    Anyone want to share their thoughts? I've done a little more investigation to try and get to the bottom of the issue. Did a 45-50 mile drive yesterday at steady speed, got home and the rear diff was burning hot to touch. Very little experience with diffs so don't know if this is to be expected...
