Re: Recall - rear seat belt

Now now guys, please play nicely

We’re all here for a bit of banter but let’s keep it fun rather than personal.

Re: Revs slow to drop

Interior lights flicker is normal as the power steering pump is electric

Have you got aircon? Turn it off and see if the problem goes away

Re: Rear wiper blade

No, they all run on the inside and nothing is as such exposed or damageable like that

Re: Rear wiper blade

I’d say broken wires. Do a multimeter test between the positive on the rear demister and it’s ground. Then between the demister and a ground in the boot instead and see if it has power

Re: Left speaker doesn't work.

You may have broken or disconnected wires behind the radio. Id be tempted to pull the radio out (or . get an audio installer to take a look) and check whats going on

Re: Engine wiring help

Vw often had extra wires that didnt plug into anything. The stepped plug you show with the red wire will connect to a mirror image of it. It should all be fairly obvious, as these engines only have a small number of plugs

Re: Brake vacuum line

There are a wide variety of versions of this part. You need to speak to the dealer or TPS and get them to lookup your reg against this part number and they can provide the last two letters which will identify the one you need

Re: Replacing speakers on my 6N

The additional wires are the feed back to the woofers. If you follow the wiring, you can find the split and put a crossover in its place

You can get them on ebay though:

Thanks for letting us know :)

The Pela extractors are very good, but as you say, sometimes the hose is a little too large for the dipstick tube
