    ok so its probably a wheel sensor then, swap the pump over to your golf & it should work properly

    been doing some more thinking..

    if i replace the subframe on the golf with the one from the passat, which has i wider track, wouldnt that affect my camber? 2.5cm pr side is alot :)

    Yes but it will need retracking anyway, and normally they do a complete wheel alignment which includes camber,

    btw the G60 Golf 2 wings are about 2cms wider than the std Golf ones

    i was thinking more about that the width will be too much to set the right camber

    okai :) thats great :p

    took the abs pump out today, havn’t had the chance to compare the two abs units yet, as the golf is parked outside, and i’m too lazy :p

    i’ve cleaned the unit well, so it looks like new :p

    i’m just full of questions, and here’s another one :p

    the fuel vapor “rebreather” thingy, is this neccesary? and ifnot, how can it be deleted? just plug all the vacuum outlets on the inlet manifold and on the throttlebody? and remove everything and disconnect/cut the wires to the magnetic valve that controls the fuelvapor?
