Re: Charging battery?

Bit of a thread resurrection. But if I replace a battery does the 6R require the battery to be recoded to the car, or is it an old fashioned straight swap. (Std battery)

Re: Coolant circulation pump running.

It does seem that every aftermarket supplier of G12 etc and G13 place a tight and short service life on their products, but why if VW Group don't? The cynic in me thinks the whole "service-life/use buy" of lots of products has more to do with stock cycles and profit margins than any reduction in pe...

Re: Coolant circulation pump running.

Cheers Jay-Jay. :) Pretty much everything you've said there agrees with what I've been thinking over. It's an interesting piece of information that the throttle body automatically performs an adaptation each time the ignition is cycled. It's bizarre that I've owned the car as long as I have and not ...

Re: Coolant circulation pump running.

Well I stuck a cheap OBD2/ELM327 reader on and that didn't throw up any faults at all. I did notice that if I simply turn the ignition on/off the throttle body cycles, though the cooling pump does not run. All a bit odd, I'm sure the cycling of the throttle body is new, it's loud enough that I can't...

Thank you, is that ELSA? And it is where do you access/source it?

Re: Understanding Current flow diagrams?

I see. I'm usually using ESLAwin, and that does contain some images from controller locations etc. I don't think the ERWIN manual contains that kind of information, it only contains the wiring schemes. Cheers, I just thought I may be missing a trick. I can find some component locations by simply do...

I downloaded the manuals from e-manuals online iirc, but it's all erWin stuff.

Re: are 6R and 6C mud flaps the same

Just to make it interesting there are also two versions, 'Long & short' Long ones are still reasonably easy to get. Short ones, not so much.

Rear long - 6R0075101
Front long - 6R0075111

Rear short - 6R0075106
Front short - 6R0075116

Understanding Current flow diagrams?

I have a couple of little niggles with the car and thought I might tray and and check a few components in an attempt to diagnose things or just rule things out. I've sort of got my head around the current track diagrams other than component locations!? A quick example. I want to check the relay that...

Re: Coolant circulation pump running.

It is very easy maybe for some of us to think that you have subliminally ignored this going on up to this point and now having heard it are "zoning in" on that noise, that does happen at times. Though you do seem to not think that this is what is happening and I can understand that. No mate, makes ...

Re: Coolant circulation pump running.

The clicking noises with modern petrol engined VW Group cars is just the Throttle Body being moved through its full range of normal movement, maybe a forced auto re-cal between TB and ECU. The electric water pump is normally just killing off any possibility of over temping of the air/water intercoo...

Re: Coolant circulation pump running.

Not been using the car much at all what with all the Covid restrictions. Took the car out yesterday and it did the same little trick again. When I turn off the engine there's a clicking of sorts like a actuator is being moved. I didn't get the bonnet up quick enough to pin point the source!! Then a ...

Definitely not a fan, noise was from rear of engine. When I say little errand it was a 20 mins each way run out.
