Re: Oil on Air Filter

Thats normal.

You may however need a new oil seperator as its should be splitting oil and vapour and only blowing oily air back up

Re: central locking issue

Its proper VW diagnostics - www.ross-tech.com

There may be someone local with a copy who can scan it for you - facebook is a good place to ask.

It gives proper manufacturer specific codes rather than Pxxxx codes which are seldom useless for complex issue diagnosis

Re: central locking issue

Can you get a scan done with VCDS? Those codes arent overly useful as they dont match the standard vag database

Re: Oil pressure switch thread

Cool stuff :)

Maybe look at getting a boost gauge air vent holder - no drilling then!

Re: Quantum is not Fuchs and not Castrol / oil issues / noise

Wynns used to make a hydraulic lifter additive that worked wonders. Might be worth trying!

Re: central locking issue

There is a known issue with the door loom on these. Get the wiring between the door and the car checked too for splits

Re: Seat Belt Buckle Stop

These are easily replaced with universal. Normally you have to melt the middle pin with a soldering iron or similar to get it to stay together

Re: central locking issue

This can be due to a number of things. A decent independent Vw specialist should be able to resolve this

was it a new genuine latch you used?

Re: ECM disabled problem

Your scanner is misleading you:

http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.ph ... 570/005488

The error is actually that engine start is blocked by immobiliser

If the dash isnt lighting up, you've got something else going on. I would suggest getting it scanned by VCDS rather than solus.
