Well done! How much did you advertise it for and where?

had it up for £950 as a start price on ebay, would of liked a bit more to cover costs of the new car and reserve was set at £1300  but got fed up of repeated  " I'll give you £250 for it and collect in an hour " type offers so let it go on end as it had been advertised once already and i wasnt paying another £17 to ebay for the privalidge

 

bloke was alright who bought it so its going to decent home 

 

on one hand it was a half decent comfy  motor and has got me to work and back for the past 2 years and all over country but on flip side its cost me a fortune in parts to keep it on the road so im glad to see back of it

Replaced second rear wheel bearing on the Ed30 to finally lose the chinook noise in the boot and replaced the high pressure fuel pump cam follower. No idea if it had been done before but only had a very slight amount of wear so doubt it's done the 83k on the clock. And then to celebrate went out and gave the beast a damn good thrashing.
Still don't know how fast the old girl will go as I ran out of safe space.

Just had the OSR caliper replaced as the handbrake mechanism packed up again. Paid £85 for a refurbished caliper including fitting. The other side was replaced nearly 2 years ago. Bloody rear calipers on these are terrible because of the handbrake.

Let me know price on skirts as I will buy today If that's the price! Front badge is a twist and pull technique if I'm correct? There's 3 clips u need to twist one way or the other then pop the clips out

On my 07 1.9tdi the front badge has no separate clips, they're moulded onto the back and when it's fitted to the grille they lock in place.

To remove I had to jam the handles (rubber clad) of a pair of pliers into the slots and then with a bar or beck screwdriver in the open Jaws twist the badge anti-clockwise 45deg which snaps the locking lugs and the badge can be removed

To refit insert the badge 45deg anti clockwise and then turn it the same right to a 12 o'clock position. It's on a bayonet so it won't fall out but it won't hold due to the lock lugs being snapped so you need to use a blob of hot melt glue or caulk when fitting to hold in place

Without this it is easily removed by a thief or it can rattle round and fall out.

Coldest day of the year so far - 4.5C jumped in my 07 1.9tdi and it started 1st turn after the glow light extinguished but then threw a stop-check coolant message and dash light.

Stopped and checked and the level was only marginally below minimum and as I had a meeting to get to I continued my journey. The light and message extinguished part way and never returned over three restarts till I got home.

When I changed my coolant 18 months ago after a run the level dropped to the min line (presumably as air in the system escaped) but I left it be and the level never changed.

I can only think that the extra cold weather was just enough to reduce the water volume enough to trigger the light. Think I'll just add a splash of pre-mix coolant tommorow.

Just cleaned my throttle body today. The pics above from previous poster was exactly what it looked like on my 1.6 FSI.

 

I did clean it a few years ago, although that time I made a huge booboo and tried to clean it without removing the TB. On the 1.4 / 1.6 FSI DO NOT EVER spray cleaners onto the TB whilst still on the car. It will send all the muck collected from EGR valve into the intake valves and engine. When I did this it idled very well but under load it was pinging a lot more.

 

This time around I took TB off and cleaned it properly with TB cleaner. Engine runs slightly better but my error from the first time has permanently clogged up the intake and no amount of cleaning will fix it unless I get it wallnut blasted or have intake valves cleaned.

Fixed the Bonnet catch, the problem appear to have been caused by a build up of crud in the mechanism. Then a wash & polish.

With the MOT in a couple of months, thought that I should bet some of the advisories cleared up. Mate did the work inc replacement CV gaiter which had failed, & replaced the lower arms & bushes. It hasn't had the tracking done yet, but the self centering is much better.

Purchased a memory saver, replaced a dying battery, ordered a replacement set of gas struts for the bonnet & tailgate. However Royal Mail sent my struts to the other end of the country, realised they'd flipped up, so sent them to the other end of the country again, so not holding my breath as to when they will actually arrive.

Replaced the Tailgate & Bonnet struts, as they eventually arrived, bloody Royal Mail!!!! Anyway I ordered two for the tailgate & one for the bonnet, however they have shipped two bonnet struts (only charged me for one though) so if anyone needs one, they are welcome to have it if they want to collect it from Guildford.

After replacing the bonnet gas strut and the tailgate ones, I also replaced the bonnet insulation as it was falling apart. £40 odd quid from Lithuania, not sure what the fit should be like as the original was literally held on by the clips, but it seems ok.

Car went in for an MOT earlier and passed with two advisories / minor defects relating to these crappy plastic headlights becoming cloudy. I cleaned it a couple of years ago as it had failed on it then but it looks like I'll have to get that sorted again before next MOT.

Happy with another 12 months without any expenditure (although I did replace the rear left hub and ABS sensor a couple of months ago for around £100).

Having been thru the pain of a drained battery / christmas tree dashboard & potential MOT failure on the wife's beloved Mk5, In the last 7 days I spent £310 on having a new ABS sensor fitted, then a Replacement bearing hub for rear drivers side (as it was the sensor ring, not the sensor), had the front alignment done, got all the faults cleared & got it MOT'd.

Now Mrs wife wants it 'Looking' like a complete car, as the fuel filler flap locked shut about 2 yrs ago, I frigged it to get it open (knackering its ability to close) & about 6 months ago some toe-rag kicked the hole flap off...

Anyway, today's task was fitting a new badge & front grille, (after smashing thru said grille in August last year, as the bonnet latch cable 'snapped'), as well as removing the towing eye from the Front drivers side & refitting the lower grille element.

I've yet to fit the 'pins' that go into the boot lid inner trim panels that allow you to suspend the parcel shelf from, so it will go up when the boot is opened, as well as the fuel flap solenoid (which i can't fit till I get a replacement fuel filler flap assembly in tornado red). E-Bay has about 10-15 up for grabs, with at least x3 of those being useless to anyone, as the plastic catch the keeps the lid shut / locked, has been sheered off ! of the other, their are about x7 Silver ones...
