  6. Have I bought a lemon 😕

    I am on with door locks and to be honest its a pig, i would advise getting a manual as my son and i have managed to snap a plastic part that operates the window lift, but after getting the manual things are a lot clearer now

  8. Tyre pressure warning

    Best to see what its like after a good run....more than likely resolve any issues the car may have inherited from driving around town, etc. Keep up updated :-)
  9. Tyre pressure warning

    Trevor, many thanks. I’ve got a long journey in a week and I’m hoping this helps settle the problem. The engine management light was showing prior to the accident. It had a major service last week (VW garage)and they wanted to charge £60 to just look! I believe the engine fault appeared after driving through heavy rain and deep puddles.
  10. Tyre pressure warning

    Hi....welcome to the Forum Very unfortunate, although not uncommon nowadays with the state of the roads as they are. It may well be the sensors being read by the system which should settle down over time. Alternatively, you can get it set by using VCDS or similar equipment. Let us know how you get on with it Good to have you onboard. Cheers, Trevor
  11. Tyre pressure warning

    Good morning all, last week I had an unfortunate incident in my Passat 15 plate, double puncture after being forced off a country road, when coming back on both left side tyres were punctured by the tarmac. AA attended, later two new tyres fitted. For the past 10 days during each journey (10 miles) the pressure warning light has come on. I’ve reset on each occasion, pressure fine etc. Is it just a case of they need a longer journey to resync? Many thanks

  18. Remap, 2013 Golf GT 2.0 tdi 150bhp

    I recently bought a 13 plate 2.0 TDI GT 150, 5 door automatic... I'm looking at getting it remapped. Has anybody else on here remapped their Golf GT (150 bhp) ? Cheers, Ben

    Hi, Long while since I've owned a VW but recently bought a 13 plate 2.0 TDI GT 150, 5 door automatic... Changed the wheels from standard 17" 'Dijon' alloys for some 18" Audi S3 alloys. Having trouble finding centre caps with VW on them, can anyone help? Pic's attached I'm also looking at getting it remapped too. Has anybody else on here remapped their Golf GT (150 bhp) ? Cheers, Ben
  20. Hi Kris....welcome to the Forum. Great looking Golf and particularly like the colour choice. I would fit a good quality aftermarket kit myself and save loads of money, but just be careful not to void any warranty
  21. Got today my new golf 7 variant 1.5 cng but they ask in VW 1800 euros for dynamic led and I was wondering if I can do the job with used ones in a better price of course . Attached the pictures of my car just before I buy it . Thanks for the hospitality and your time regarding this matter.

  25. It's my #Twitterversary! I have been on Twitter for 9 years, since 24 Sep 2010 (via @twi_age).

  26. Have I bought a lemon 😕

    Hi....welcome to the Forum The issue with turbo performance dropping out is more than likely the variable vanes gummed up in the turbo which then leads to going into limp home mode and loss of boost which you describe. The issue with what seems to be a DPF is unlikely as it would not have been fitted with one in 2005. However, the EGR could be blocked which could also lead to these symptoms. In summary, it sounds like you have bought a car that has been driven around town and short-shifted through the gears (e.g. 30mph in 3rd or 4th gear) which has led to the build up of carbon in the engine and intake system. I would advise something along the lines of a Terraclean treatment to clean the engine and from there on drive it hard through the gears (as often as possible) to purge the carbon from the engine. If it is being driven around town a lot then best to drive in a low gear at all times (e.g. 30mph = 2nd gear). This will then keep the engine clean and return good performance and economy. Other jobs such as door lock and starter motor are straight forward jobs and shouldn't cost much to rectify. Let us know how you get on with it all
  27. OK, so the wife wanted a 7 seater and I found this 2005 1.9tdi touran. Issues: Engine fault (turned out to be brake pedal switch, replaced this and things got slightly better...) then... Emission fault (did a reasonable run thinking dpf and it cleared. (not it's back.. And I've just done a 700 mile weekend) Power loss. Can be driving all fine and then suddenly it's as though the turbo has stopped working. Turn engine off, start again and is fine. Seems sometimes if I slam the brakes it happens, other times I can literally just be driving laing the road. Starting issue. I understand this is the starter motor, does anyone know if this is a straight forward job to change or not? Passenger door doesn't lock... How big a job is this to fix? So, here are the initial issues... any advice, assistance would be much app3as I'm about to get it in the neck from my wife for buying a dud car 🙁.
