Re: Passanger Rear Caliper Seized - help buying new one

Having looked at images and specs elsewhere im pretty certain...

Re: Passanger Rear Caliper Seized - help buying new one

I'm not sure where/why/when the piston diameter changed, so with a car at this age, why not get both sides refurbished instead of buying maybe a wrong one and having to replace the other side soon? i just had new discs and pads at the rear and there was no issue with the drivers side caliper so no ...

Re: Passanger Rear Caliper Seized - help buying new one

seems it could be something to do with a PR number as well? Are the 9n3 GTi's all PR 1KV ?

Re: White smoke for a bit at idle after 3-4 mins of use?

Previous owner worked as a VW tech so not sure why the coolants are different. The blue seems to sit above the pink one though, maybe i could syringe it out rather than full flush? As for the smoke / weather relationship. Its not like what you see when its cold and everybodies exhaust is letting a b...

White smoke for a bit at idle after 3-4 mins of use?

Hello, bit of an odd issue thats infrequent but wanted some advise on; basically if i start the car from cold (say first thing before setting off for work) everything is fine, then sometimes when i get into traffic or some traffic lights within 5 mins of journey and sit idling for for a bit i will o...

Re: Engine bay pic and queries

i have the standard plastic DV in the shed so will fish that out later, remove the atmospheric dump valve and hook it back up how it should be. Hopefully the standard dv can deal with the extra boost since the cars mapped. ill also move that breather filter further down and out the way in the bay so...

Re: Engine bay pic and queries

turns out the circled bit is just a random breather filter so i need someone with some know-how to get all this tidied up. rather than a recirc valve its got a atmospheric dump valve on as well so i could do with someone giving me a hand sorting all that out and going with something like a forge 007...

I have noticed when sat in traffic the cabin starts to smell a bit fumey - im wondering if the breather circled in green needs moving to lower/further forward in the bay? Also i notice the recirc/dv at the back of the engine is in a differnt place to most people. ...
