I did mine when I changed the manifolds.
I had remap & EGR delete, and blanked the EGR port.
The turbo duct was clean & shiny up to where the EGR T's in, from there on it was all thick tar.
The duct work I did in caustic soda, the replacement manifolds were clean anyway but the 24 valve ports...
Yeup, I self fitted, first detachable kit I bought from an Italian manufacturer, I sent back because the detachable mechanism was rubbish. Ended up buying a used fixed which wasn't for an S-line and the swan neck fouled the bumper slightly, the S-line has a sort of double chin, anyway I made it...
Thanks for the reply, I did try a few sharp blows,,, before the air chisel.
With the hub on the bench I cut the arm away and popped the taper in the vice, then pushed the bush back home.
Still looking for a good separator for the other side though.
I've had a nightmare time picking apart the front suspension without the right tools.
The rear lower I managed with a 19mm fork but the scissor I bought for the front won't go into place.
Can anyone specify a separator for the front lower?
So, changing front lower control arm, without a ball joint separator and I've pushed the steel insert half way out.
1. Can someone send me link for a separator that will work.
2. How to proceed from here, with insert half in/half out?
Can't avoid having a towbar any longer.
His anyone had success with a universal bypass relay?
Trying to avoid coding, not worried about extra features, just need basic trailer lights.
Recycling a 7 year old thread!
Air intake pre-filter mesh, reading above I'm wondering if these are on 3.0tdi only.
Mines looking tatty so I've ordered a replacement.
It's tempting to remove it, but it does stop leaves & insects cluttering up the air box, however it does need regularish...
Just fitting a new battery, and what a fight that is.
Anyway, there is no tray as such and the battery is hard on the A/C pipes running underneath.
Is this correct?
The car has always been main agent serviced and I would guess it's the original battery.
Car is a S-line Quattro Avant auto.
