  2. 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
  3. Got today my new golf 7 variant 1.5 cng but they ask in VW 1800 euros for full led and I was wondering if I can do the job with used ones in a better price of course . Thanks for the hospitality and your time regarding this matter.

    Hi....welcome to the Forum Feel free to post up some pics of the T5 us you want......always nice to see the different campervan conversions.
  5. 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

  7. Limp mode when underload at 70mph

    Hi....welcome to the Forum 100% most definitely the variable vanes sticking in the turbo. You can either try cleaning it with a Turbo Cleaner solution https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Power-MaxedDiesel-Turbo-Clean-Kit-Removing-Carbon-Deposits-Improving-Performance/401762692999?epid=1943810068&hash=item5d8aec2f87:g:ZfkAAOSw0IBc0Lc5 The alternative to replace the turbo cartridge which is a lot cheaper than replacing the whole turbocharger unit. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=vw+golf+mk5+tdi+turbo+cartridge&_sop=15 Let us know what you find
  8. Electrical issues

    Hi....welcome to the Forum I would advise looking at the Boot switch/solenoid and replace if necessary. This will probably sort the issue you have. Good to have you onboard and feel free to ask any other questions as you go along.
  9. Golf 6 GTI headlamp conversion?

    There are a few bulbs listed here https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_odkw=vw+golf+gti+mk6+led+bulbs&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=vw+golf+gti+mk6+led+headlamp+bulbs&_sacat=0

    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
  11. Head lights dull and yellow

    Toothpaste works surprisingly well...and cheap!
  12. 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
  13. Suspension Air Kit

    Many thanks for the reply, just for I understand better is this also a common feature for a Dec. 2011Caddy? 'YN61FTA' Thanks again
  14. Mr

    What are the symptoms with the vehicle ?
  15. Engine Oil Filter

    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
  18. 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
  19. lost keys

    You should be able to buy a complete set of door and steering locks, ECU and any other components needed to just plug and play...done it on a Honda and Renault before. Not sure of cost on eBay or whether it is cheaper to buy the correctly programmed key, sorry
  20. mk 5 golf 1.6 fsi 2004 HELP!!!

    Oh dear! that seems quite catastrophic. I would imagine that there is a fault in the electrical wiring that is shorting to earth. This would be the reason the fuse has blown and why the battery is discharging rapidly. I would take the car to an auto-electrician to diagnose the cause before any serious damage to the electrical system occurs
  21. Petrol Sharan?

    not sure really....may be available for another country possibly
  22. golf6 rain sensor deactivate

    Anyone know if its possible to use Vagcom to deactivate the annoying rain sensor for the wipers & make it work as normal?
  23. Passat cc reverse camera stuck open

    HI....welcome to the Forum I'm not sure on this one, would probably contact your VW dealer and see if there is a revised version that resolves this issue. Seems to be an issue with this camera across the range so surely they must have revised it over time
  24. CFFB turbo actuator

    Hi Glynn....welcome to the Forum What are the symptoms your car is displaying which leads you to the above conclusion?

  26. mk6 golf exhaust?

    Hi, thanks for reply but it seems this part is only available from VW dealers! ( hence reason I wondered if the MK5 silencer would fit with minor mods)
