  2. Slight update.. Don't have a battery charger, but bought a solar charger off ebay. Had some power go in, went as turned ignition. Mate lent me his slow charger, 19 hours later still not fully charged. Weird for a "new" battery from Kwik Fit Changed for another new battery and it started 2nd attempt. All good progress towards it making back on the road yay

  4. Hi I'm seriously thinking about buying a 2016 r line touran 2.0ltr diesel manual not dsg. Does anyone have any advice on what to look for. I'm currently driving a passat b5.5 and I've had my fun with changing door locking mechs and sorting out wet ccm's under passenger footwell 😡 Thank you all in advance !! 😀😀😀

  8. If it is a 3 pin sensor then it is a digital sensor (active) and requires voltage to function If it has 2 pins then it is inductive (passive sensor) which does not need a voltage to function The engine requires moving components to wave past the sensor to create a signal and if the moving component is not to par then it won't work
  9. Thanks for the suggestion. As it happens, turned out to be a tiny crack in the flexible sealant on corner of tailgate end roof panel. Only just noticeable by small rust spot.
  10. Hi....welcome to the Forum It may not have been removed as it was around this period that they introduced DPFs to diesel vehicles. The best way to determine this is to see if the vehicle is Euro3, 4, or 5, etc. Check out the spec on this link. https://www.gov.uk/get-vehicle-information-from-dvla Look at the Euro Status and then do a search to see if it should have one fitted
  11. Both front door (puddle) lights stopped working together. Is there a seperate fuse maybe? .....anyone help if you can please
  12. Hi Guys, can I fit a later model sharan steering wheel and air bag to a 98 sharan? thanks

  14. Hi there, new to this group. I purchased some new Xenon bulbs from https://xenons4u.co.uk/. One of my bulbs broke, so I bought some new bulbs from https://xenons4u.co.uk/. Top quality and speedy delivery time. If anyone is looking to buy some new bulbs, I highly recommend using them.
  15. hi, does anyone know if the vw sharan updated model is on sale now.
  16. Hi I have a 2000 V reg automatic Polo for sale with 76000 miles on. It could do with some tlc on boot and a spot of laquer coming off on bonnet. Can send pics of anyone interested?
  17. Hi....welcome to the Forum Usually the ride height is dictated by the coil spring size itself. The coil over adjustment will tighten or loosen the coil spring tension therefore affecting the handling performance and ride comfort but not really affect the ride height considerably but may alter it marginally. Just try adjusting it for the settings you prefer for daily driving and also handy to adjust if you were taking it on a track for example.
  18. Hi.....welcome to the Forum It sounds like something is powering down as it is not using that device for a period, worth checking power saving settings on your phone and then check vehicle settings after that
  19. Hi The fact that an ABS light is showing suggests that the system is struggling to calculate a true road speed therefore it has gone to a limp home (default running) setting. You would need to resolve the ABS issue - probably a wheel sensor fault which is cheap and easy to fix
  20. Hi All, Selling my Scirocco R on autotrader, if anyone is interested please follow the link provided for more details; https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202005299645596?radius=5&advertising-location=at_cars&postcode=gu71ff&model=SCIROCCO&make=VOLKSWAGEN&sort=relevance&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&page=1 Thanks Stewart.
  21. Worth replacing the fuse as it may be fractured and occassionally make and break the circuit
  22. Can anyone tell me if my 2004 touran 1.9 dti n/s/f suspension strut is the same as a 2.0 dti? And does other voltswagons ect fit ? Thankyou
  23. Has anyone had a tow bar retro fitted to a Mk6 Polo at an independent company (ie TridentTowing). If so, does the tow bar interfere with the parking sensors?
  24. Hey, hope everyone is good. I'm having intermittent issues with the headunit in my 2015 Mk7 Golf GTD. The headunit will start, but it seems "disconnected" from the MFD or other buttons like on the dash. Sometimes after a short period of time it'll come online and be fine. When it doesn't boot properly bluetooth doesnt work. It states "turn ignition on" even though the engine is running. Any ideas? 20200520_180816.mp4
  25. Hi 125 kg is not a lot of weight to overload the suspension as long as its not in there for a long time and over rough roads then it should be fine. Its probably your imagination that it is lower but worth checking if the car settles after a while and if leaning to one side when empty I would have the springs checked but unlikely that would happen.
  26. Hi Keith.....welcome to the Forum Here are some on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=2008+volkswagen+polo+coolant+temperature+sensor&_sacat=0 Just compare the one you have on the engine to those in the photos but ensure that the colour is the same as there used to be two different types and identified by their individual colour (Negative and Postive temperature cooefficient types)
  27. Hi....welcome to the Forum Servicing a 1.2 Polo should be easy enough if you follow some guidance (YouTube is a semi-reliable source of information) and some tasks are very simple. Basic hand tools (spanners, sockets, etc) and some garage equipment (trolley jack, axle stands, oil drain tray) are always handy to have around and invaluable in working on cars. Other tools such as oil filter wrench, torque wrench, hydrometer to check coolant strength, etc are also handy to have in your toolbox. Most items are available in Halfords at reasonable cost and quite good quality as well. Let us know how you get on with it all
  28. I would say that it needs a good blast to clear it through especially if it was only driven locally.
