Re: 1.2 coil plugs

Likely to be the coil packs. For what they cost, pick up new ones from either Euro or GSF with one of their discount codes. Used ones will likely fail

Re: How do I get into fuse box?

It just pops open, the screws are nothing to do with opening the cover

The diagnostic port is accessible without removing the fuse box. Can you post a pic of what you are seeing?

Re: Newbie alert! Gear selection issues!

Welcome

This could be a case of a badly adjusted linkage but could also by a synchromesh problem in the gearbox which isn’t uncommon

Re: How to fix the 6N2 ABS Signal Outside Specifications Fault

I would pick up a replacement ABS module and see if the problem goes away. If you are confident the loom is ok, then you may have a faulty controller.

Re: 1.0 starting problem

Ignition switch can cause this issue. could also be the crank position sensor (G28)

Re: 1.0MPI has gone pop - what else will fit?

Plenty of choices. 1.4 8 or 16V or a 1.6GTI block for petrol. 1.4TDI or 1.9SDI

Re: How to fix the 6N2 ABS Signal Outside Specifications Fault

I’d say you more than likely have an internal break in the ABS wiring that feeds that sensor so you won’t see it. I’d replace the loom that goes through the wing to rule it out

Re: How to change Selector shaft oil seal, on a 6n2

Its quite as easy task. You need to be ever so careful not to scratch the selector shaft though and youll need a deep socket to seat the new seal home

Haynes has a good write up in the manual

Hi Vas

Could be damaged wiring in the ABS loom. Any faults showing now?

Re: Head gasket failure ?

AVY was a modded block for emissions compliance. Ultimately they are interchangeable

It is sounding more and more like a warped head. Very odd
