The best way to solve a lot of vague electrical problems is to fit a new battery :mrgreen:

When fitting a battery with bigger capacity than factory one, do you need to change the coding of the car? Say the car comes with 50Ah battery and you replace it with a 70Ah one without changing the coding. Will the car charge the battery to 50Ah and stop charging more?

It depends. If you have a car with a start/stop system (bluemotion technologies) it is necessary to code the new capacity. Otherwise it is not necessary.

Did someone see my seats?

Image

Ah there are the back seats.... :D

Image

Driver seat... suspiciously clean... :D

Image

Passenger seat... interesting colour...

Image

Same as the rear seats some hours ago...

Image

Ah, that explains it all :twisted:

Image

Took out all the seats for a proper cleaning of the interior of the car and took off all the upholstery of the seats and gave them a tour through the washing machine.

Hi,
Could I ask where you sourced the injectors please and what was the cost?
I nearly bought a 1.6TDI Polo, but was advised against it due to injector failures and high cost of replacements.

There is a local shop here that sells new ones for about €350 and used ones for €150 (tested and cleaned).

I'm guessing that price is per injector?
Not a cheap job to replace them then.

Yes, that's the price per injector unfortunately.

hi everybody. as what iichel is working on now. i think it’s best for me to ask the question bout some maintenances here.

1. first is the alternator lifecycle. How long does alternator really last? with my CBZB engine clocking 295,000 km now, should i consider changing the alternator? reason for the thinking is because my worries of the additional equipments retrofitted and i noticed sometimes, with slow speed movements and alot of cornering works, my voltage reader is showing less 13volts down to 12.5v sometimes.

is this a sign of poor alternator?


2. my DSG is making loud “clunk” noise when coming to stop from 3rd to 2nd gear. something wrong with my 2nd gear. Both D and S mode make the clunk. but it wont have that noise if i pushed to manual and let the gear downshift on its own in manual mode. so i will probably send the gb repair + new clutch when its 300k km together with the timing chain job.

For the first question, it will last until it breaks. I've heard about alternators failing within 100.000km and some seem to last forever.

For the second, you can have a look at the DSG clutch wear.
As the clutch wears out, the wear is corrected by the plungers of the hydraulic control unit (mechatronic). If the maximum adjustment has been reached (around 17 mm), you will receive an error message ("limit reached"). So the adaptation value is an indication of the state of the clutch. When new, the value is around 11 mm.

[Start VCDS] - [02-Gearbox] - [Measured value blocks-08]
[Group 095, block 3] gives the adjustment value of clutch 1.
[Group 115, block 3] gives the adjustment value of clutch 2.

ok thanks iichel i will check that soon. but logically, if clutch wear is the issue, dont you think it should give same issue to all other gears? btw i havent had any error on that clutch limit sofar. but i will check the adaptation value
