  2. 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

  9. Petrol Sharan?

    Could the petrol engine tow a light trailer?
  10. Petrol Sharan?

    Hi...welcome to the Forum In general, the diesel Sharan engine is a good one but not used in built up areas where it can clog up over time. The petrol engine therefore would be a better option for local driving
  11. 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

  13. Petrol Sharan?

    I'm debating whether to get a petrol Sharan. I had a diesel Sharan that I bought just as the emissions scandal came out. I swore I'd never buy another VW diesel but we loved the Sharan. Is the Petrol Sharan a reasonable option?

  19. 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)
  20. mk6 golf exhaust?

    Hi Simon.....welcome to the Forum You should be able to source one through any good motor factors as long as the other sections have not been modified then it should just fit straight in. Let us know what you find

  22. Mk5 r32

    Hi Rob Common problem this one, but can't seem to find any definitive answer but suggested faults lie in the Haldex controller or even the oil level being low in the unit....worth checking out everything related to the electrical connections to and from the unit. Let us know what you find

  24. mk6 golf exhaust?

    Hi, newbie here! Just got a 2009 mk 6 gti & last owner has fitted a centre silencer delete pipe. Im a bit old for the constant racket from this & would like to refit a centre silencer but am having a lot of problems sourcing this. Any ideas other than a complete new system? Looks online at least, to be same as a Mk5 gti centre box? thanks, Simon

    Thank you very much.
  27. Auxiliary port location

    Hi....welcome to the Forum The auxiliary port is at the back of the unit and you would need to acquire one of these to fit into it once you have removed the unit and found somewhere to route it to (e.g. the glovebox) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-Seat-Skoda-Aux-IN-Input-Adapter-for-IPOD-MP3-/270727493449?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item3f089db749
