  2. Golf 6 GTI headlamp conversion?

    There are a few bulbs listed here
  3. anyone tried to fit an LED headlamp bulb conversion to these cars? I bought a set off Amazon ( fits most cars!) LOL, unfortunately I found our cars dont have same arrangement as most others & the bulbs are held in a plastic thing that acts as a connector too so cant see how to fit my LEDs! Anybody come up with any way to do this?

    Hi Paula....welcome to the Forum Personally, I believe it will be cheaper to buy a good used van and convert it to a campervan rather than buy one already done. There are plenty of conversions that you can buy from ebay and simply bolt it in to start the conversion. Albeit, you'll have to pay professional trades to put in the gas, electrics, pop top, etc but even with these costs it would still allow a profit in the van if you decided to sell it after a while. Let us know how you decide to go forwards with this idea. Cheers, Trevor

    Hi just new on here my husband and I are hoping to travel and need a campervan. What do we need to look for should we buy new or old. Or transform a van into a campervan which is better thanks.

    Toothpaste works surprisingly well...and cheap!
  8. Hi What can i use to clear my headlights any suggestions Please
  9. popping noise and black smoke

    Sounds like it is the intercooler hose popped off, better than splitting I suppose and should only need a new clip. I would also check the boost pressure is not too high due to a seized wastegate valve or defective solenoid

    Many thanks for the reply, just for I understand better is this also a common feature for a Dec. 2011Caddy? 'YN61FTA' Thanks again
  11. popping noise and black smoke

    We've took the front bumper off and found a pipe below the engine has come off and needs a new jubilee clip. Would this just be the cause of it or could the turbo have possibly gone as well

    What are the symptoms with the vehicle ?

    P0810 Clutch Position Control Error Indicator The PCM has detected a fault in the clutch position sensor circuit. The clutch position sensor circuit is sometimes called the clutch start switch because it must be closed for the starter to engage. This code applies only to vehicles equipped with a manual transmission. If this code is exhibited in a vehicle with an automatic transmission, suspect a defective PCM or programming error. Code Set Parameters If the PCM detects an abnormal voltage or resistance reading from the clutch position sensor circuit, a code will be stored and a malfunction indicator lamp may be illuminated. Some vehicles will require multiple failure cycle in order for a service engine soon lamp to be illuminated and some models will not illuminate a service engine soon lamp at all. Symptoms Symptoms may range from non-existent or could include failure of the engine to start, the engine may start without the clutch depressed, a stored code, and an illuminated service engine soon lamp. Common Causes The most common causes of this type of malfunction code being stored are due to a defective or misadjusted clutch position sensor. Other possible causes include shorted, open, or corroded wiring and/or electrical connectors. Common Misdiagnosis Technicians report that the starter/solenoid is frequently condemned in error when the clutch position sensor is at fault. Diagnosis A scanner (or code reader) and a digital volt/ohmmeter will be helpful in successfully diagnosing the potential causes of this code. In most modern OBD-II applications the clutch position sensor (also called the clutch start switch) is used to close the circuit between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid assembly While the clutch position sensor (or clutch interrupter) switch may vary by design from one manufacturer to another, it is usually of the “on/off” contact variety and is stationary mounted near the clutch foot pedal on the support bracket Some models place the switch directly on the pedal lever and use the pivot point as a fulcrum to move the contacts and open/close the circuit Regardless of design, constant voltage is typically present on one side of the switch and when the contacts in the switch are closed, voltage is transferred across the contacts and out of the switch to the starter or starter relay Begin your diagnosis with a visual inspection of all wiring and connectors Repair or replace damaged, disconnected, shorted, or corroded wiring, connectors, and components as necessary Always retest the system after repairs are completed to ensure success. If all system wiring, connectors, and components (Including fuses) appear to be in normal working order, connect the scanner (or code reader) to the diagnostic connector and record all stored codes and freeze frame data This information can be extremely helpful in diagnosing intermittent conditions that may have contributed to this code being stored After the codes are cleared, operate the vehicle to see if the code returns If the code fails to immediately return, you may have an intermittent condition Intermittent conditions can prove to be quite a challenge to diagnose and in extreme cases may have to be allowed to worsen before a correct diagnosis can be made If the code immediately returns, check for battery voltage on the input side of the clutch position sensor using the digital volt/ohmmeter If there is no voltage present on the input side of the switch, disconnect any related control modules and check for continuity between the system fuse and the input circuit at the clutch position sensor Repair open or shorted circuits as required If voltage is present on the input side of the clutch position sensor, depress the clutch pedal and check for voltage on the output side of the clutch position sensor If you have voltage on the input side and none on the output side (when the clutch pedal is depressed) suspect a faulty or misadjusted clutch position sensor Adjust or replace the switch as needed and retest the system afterward to ensure a successful repair. If there is voltage present on the output circuit of the clutch position sensor, check circuit continuity and resistance between the switch and the PCM Take care to disconnect all related control modules before testing Again, refer to the vehicle wiring diagram to ensure that all circuits are tested Repair or replace system open or shorted circuits/connectors as required If all circuits coincide with manufacturer’s specifications, suspect a defective PCM Remember that PCM failure is rare and replacement will require reprogramming
  14. popping noise and black smoke

    It could be many things but certainly sounds quite drastic so I would take it to a garage immediately before the situation worsens Let us know what was found to be the problem

  17. popping noise and black smoke

    this morning my hubby was driving down the m1 when all of a sudden there was a rather loud popping noise come from the car. after the noise occured the car started to chuck loads of thick black smoke from the exhaust. any ideas on what the problem could possibly be? the car is a 53plate vw touran 2l tdi
  18. Suspension Air Kit

    Air suspension is more than likely what is already on the van when it was converted and it would have been lowered by releasing the air from the air-bags and then reinflating to raise the vehicle. One of two things has more than likely happened, 1- one of the air bags has a leak or 2- the system needs inflating either manually or if the pump is no longer working then replacing the pump. Alternatively, you could fit a retro-fit system that is available on eBay air suspension kit
  19. Suspension Air Kit

    Hi, I have a VW Caddy transformed to carry a disable person at the rear, I understand the car was lowered to be able to be transformed, but as now is a bit low, every time I pass over a "street hump" the chassis is touching the tarmac, I heard that I could fit "Suspension Air Kit" so I come to you guys to if this would be a solution to increase the gap between the chassis and the road surface and if so which ones should I get? Thanks for the attention
  20. Engine Oil Filter

    Can anyone advise me where the engine oil filter is located on a 2018 Passat R-Line? Engine is DFGA 110kW diesel.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi....welcome to the Forum If it is an old battery then chances are it has failed. Worth getting the charge rate tested to see if the alternator is working ok and if so then replace the battery and that should resolve the issue. Cheers, Trevor
  23. Help

    I went out to my car yesterday and tried to open it with the key fob, nothing happened I discovered that the car was unlocked. When I tried to start it, lights flashed and it started clicking, this happened a couple of times then it went completely blank no flashing or clicking. Would this be caused if the battery drained and could it be cured if I get a jump start? My car is a 56 plate Passat

    Hi....welcome to the forums Nice car, the 1.8 GTi Turbo should provide enough excitement for most journeys I would imagine Good to have you onboard
  25. Rns 315 power button

    It's certainly worth pulling it apart as long as it comes apart easily as opposed to wrecking it in the process. You never know what you may find and it could be an easy fix
  26. Rns 315 power button

    Called a vw dealership they quoted £110 just to have a look ,I think the problem is the actual power button, but at the moment it's on all the time but goes off with the ignition, but if I take it to bits it might never work again.
