    It was like a high-pitched whine - It was so loud that you could hear it at idle over the noise of the engine.
    When you felt the black bearing cover (carefully!!) when it was running, you could feel the bearing grumbling.
    £18.50 and 15 mins effort sorted it. If only everything was so easy!

    It was like a sort of hollow sounding shriek - High pitched.
    Bill sprayed a load of belt lube stuff on it and it still didn't go away.
    Interestingly, there wasn't any play on the pulley wheel when I took it off.
    I hope that helps!

    Whoop got an MOT today a couple of advisories corroded rear dampers, but I am changing the rear shocks this summer anyway.

    The brake test on an S3 is errrmm interesting.

    ...as its AWD they shouldn't be testing on brake roller... they have to be tested on the road or using a plate brake tester

    Did a few bits today with help from S3 Hilife (Legend), new Tip, new FMIC, and cleaned the injectors. Runs and Sounds 100x better.

    Do you need to modify the bumper with the airtec intercooler? Thinking about buying it myself, just don't want to sacrifice the foglights :)

    Good question lol, all I can tell you is the dimentions given are 680w x 340h x 60mm, I've been using one on mine for a while now and it works well tbh, not sure how it will cope when the BT goes on though

    Emptied another S3 part from my garage when JayA3 came to collect the BNIP front lower grille surround that I originally bought from Fran-S3 but never fitted. Nice to catch up with someone from the AS.net forum again.

    It's 60mm mate, the pipework is supplied with the kit which connects from the cooler to the upper hose and map pipe in the engine bay

    Changed mine during a recent cam belt change (fiddly job). The old one you could spin the tensioner and it would go for ages and sound horrible. With all new tensioners and rollers it's so quiet. Just the damn injectors and carbon canister valve ticking away.

    thats an idea thats been brewing in my head quite a while, i want relocate the brakes to the top and leave the tail lights at the bottom, but then i always wondered where to relocate the rear fog light to, even considered getting a central rear fog from a mk2 tt but it just didnt fit well with the overall aesthetics of the 8l
