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

They have sadly been discontinued

The part numbers were 6N0 615 611 and 6N0 615 612

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

You must use VCDS to bleed the brakes on these if you want to be sure there is no air in the system.

The latest stock DVs are very strong.

Re: Engine bay pic and queries

Theres some debate over whether removing the N249 is actually worthwhile. If its working, then leave it be. The turbo performs better with it connected, and the prespool up is faster than without due to the way the engine management works As for getting rid of the 007p, you are best to fit a brand n...
