    Audi s3 recurculation valve

    I need a new one also, I'll be buying a standard one because as far as I'm aware the forge one doesn't give you added benefits apart from shiny metal..

    Heavy traffic overheat! Coolant pouring out thermostat

    Wouldn't bother changing stat. Unless it's faulty. Just replacement O ring. Don't make the silly error of putting the seal on the wrong side of the stat. I would recommend a 1/4 inch socket set with flex joints plus a magnetic pick up tool. Access isn't the best!

    Heavy traffic overheat! Coolant pouring out thermostat

    If the leak is coming from stat housing my guess would be leaky stat O ring seal or maybe a split housing.

    Thermostat change.

    I used a load of 1/4 inch extensions and one of them 1/4 inch flex joints which are included in pretty much every 1/4 inch socket set and obviously the correct socket, think you can use a Allen head on the stat housing bolts also, which can make life easier..

    Ausi S3 8l 2000 Brake Pedal Going To The Floor

    I had same issue recently. I had removed calipers for painting. Painting done, put everything back together, bolted calipers on etc. started bleeding system in the correct order using a pressure bleeder.

    255 Rears With Adaptors

    Yeah I'll see what happens when my adapters arrive, maybe just DIY. Wheels stung me bad enough, then again don't think I got the worst deal. Moving on to other issues, as I already said rears are 255 but the fronts are 205! Jeez I'm going straight ahead on every roundabout!

    255 Rears With Adaptors

    Do you think getting a engineering specialist to machine the bolts down to the suitable length would be safe?

    255 Rears With Adaptors

    Purchased lovely set of twist alloys but not sure what thickness of adapters is suitable. With the rear tyres being 255/40/17 I think with 25 mm adaptors it would just be too wide, according to my tape measure. Anyone got that set up? 15mm adaptors are prob the way ahead but then the m14 1.5...

    A3 1.6 Year 2000 Alloys

    I'm going to have a look at genuine porsche twist alloys this evening. My understanding is if the stud pattern on the porsche wheels is 5x100 they will bolt on directly but if they are 5x130 you will need adapters..
