wife broke down the other day, coolant hose split in cold weather, lost all coolant and drove the car until the oil pressure light came on.
new coolant hose on and now the car loses coolant and failing sniffer test :(
180k miles, head gasket needed, skimmed head and 4.5 hours work plus fluids...
got some for sale with or without tyres in the classifieds
missus wants smaller wheels - back to the 16's for her, better as she will just damage them anyway
was overtaking 4 cars and heard a huge gutteral groan on way back from viewing a house
feck! says the wife...
pulled over and saw that the cat pipe that mates to the fixing studs to the turbo has popped off, looks like weld failed or when the car was having a new exhaust fitted the other day...
phase 1 car purchase made - 2.7 T allroad tip with 68k and full recaros :rock:
picked up my new allroad last weekend, she has been into Grizz for a check and a few things to sort but pressure tested nice and tight.
Cheers to Unit 20 for sorting out the areas prior to my road trip
moved home and found these in my shed - full set of fronts and rears
they had covered 72k when I took them off
collection only from near warrington as they are heavy!
they will be going in the skip if no-one wants them
thinking it is time to move the old girl on
thinking she is worth approx £800 to £1250 - right ball park?
1996 P plate 1.8T saloon with 150k miles FWD in silver
new turbo at 140k serviced regularly at dealer then specialists (unit 20 on the wirral) - still pulls really well
Thought I would make people aware of this one as I had a wasted trip up there to see it after being told it was a great nick
Went to see this one in Wakefield
not in great condition at all
guys had clanged it over christmas...
My turbo has gone, suspect the wastegate is screwed / stuck open as I have no boost - have changed out the DV, N75, pressure tested and MAF - still down on power by approx 30bhp i.e. feels like a normal NA 1.8
Can I change it out in situ? if so how long do you reckon?
Had the headlight...
finally decided to get round to pulling out the instrument cluster to change the bulbs that had gone on my 1996 A4 T Sport
1x thin nose pliers
flexible philips heand screw driver (socket set type is fine)
6mm socket for the bulb removal and refit
use this guide to help...
time has come to move up the housing ladder a bit so the car is up for sale...
sad day :(
Car is now in the classifieds and on piston heads
Any questions please PM.
I have just been to see those s4 recaros from ebay and the door cards - waste of f***ing time
drove 2.5 hrs to see them, the seller said they were is great condition when I asked to see better...
looking at an allroad for the old man has anyone had one of these? if so what did you think of it? anything to watch out for?
looking at either a late C5 chassis 2.5tdi tip or upto a C6 chassis with the 3.0tdi - both with all the toys
the specs look good and the C5 seem really good vfm...
Tsport 1996 preface lift
I have a hole in the lens of the passenger headlamp, have sourced a replacement unit but can I access the screws to pop her out? no.
top 2 torx are fine, then I have access problems as the indicator is blocking - does this indicator slide out or is it fastened some...
