Sounds like your EGR valve, turbo clogged or a problem I had with an old SEAT Toledo 1.9tdi was that the turbo accusation vacuum hose had come off.
You will need more wiring adding then.
I didn't have/want electric adjustment so were a straight forward swap.
Did you have lumber adjustment?
It would depend what extra functions you have on the Recaros, and do you want those bits to work, as to what extra...
I've got the BRE in my A4.
Was having no problem with the EGR but as per a previous 1.9 TDI I fitted a delete kit and removed the cooler too.
It's called the tonneau cover.
Audi dealers, cuh!
What functions did you have on your original seats?
Power feed is the black plug surely?
BRD/BRE which one is unvaned?
I cut and spliced the plugs off my old seats into my new B8 seats so they would fit my car sockets.
I didn't have the green heating one anyway,...
What's the state of your EGR valve?
And do you know the cars history, had it been used for short runs?
Sounds like your turbo vanes might be a bit...
Is that right your car was only 120bhp as standard?
Just joined it.
No Rob, a guy was selling one and said it was fwd. I thought they would all be quattros.
Nope, more than content with my old bus, for now.
Yes thanks, I know they are available as quattros, I just wasn't sure about the fwd.
Just a bit curious really.
But for all you guys that know, were the above cars with the 220hp BUL engines available as fwd or just in quattro guise?
Hmmmm bad state really then.
There was nothing wrong with my '51 plate Toledo, really sound, even at 15 yes old.
I put mk 4 Golf sports seats and she was great.
Isn't yours one of the newer '08 ones too?
I used to have a '01 SEAT Toledo 1.9tdi.
Owned it for a year, great car and very quick. Sold it in the end as a MOT failure after the ABS module...
Are they still available?
