dropped it off today for its mot tomorrow, fingers crossedJanuary 28, 2014 at 10:10 pm #10246
unfortunately it failed boo but on the upside nothing to major,
the boot lid wouldnt open even though he was told the switch was on the centre console, front wishbone mount had to much play, needs door pops on the outside, can not rely on the alarm fob to pop door, front indicator bulb decided to blow on the way there, apparently the rear subframe didnt look tight, not that he ever seen one before or even checked it properly, oh wellJanuary 29, 2014 at 8:12 am #10247
I would take it somewhere else, like the local VW dealers.
MOT info here
Latch securely in closed position. Front doors should open from
inside and outside the vehicle. Rear doors should open from outside the vehicle. Hinges and catches for security and condition.
more detailed info here
Both front doors must be openable from the inside and outside and all doors must latch securely.
a passenger door must open from the outside using relevant control
It does not say that they have to open mechanically only “relevant control” so I would query that one!February 4, 2014 at 9:50 pm #10499
well its through now, little button put on the outside for entry, everything done so its probably as good as new
ive decided the gearbox mounts are to harsh and ordered some new ones, which ill get fitted and should quieten it down a bit, since i’m going to drive on the road as an everyday car tooFebruary 5, 2014 at 8:51 am #10501
Congratulations on passing! any photos of your door mod please?February 6, 2014 at 9:04 pm #10502
thank you chris, no door mods, just a small button put on each of the mirrors to allow entry with a switch inside to turn it off when I leave the carFebruary 7, 2014 at 11:23 am #10503
Good idea!February 8, 2014 at 7:43 pm #10504
Great build mate nice to see something abit differentMarch 15, 2014 at 10:10 am #10551
Thanks, had a few teething problems not been able to drive it since the steering rack decided to split at the feed side,
who ever wired the loom for the digifiz to ce2 should be shot, the block connector from digifiz was wired correctly but down to U1 and U2 pins were all over the place,
next thing with this to wire in a speedo converter to mphMarch 23, 2014 at 8:19 am #10560
well this little bit of kit is awesome, it converts your kph to mph, also has adjustment in it for different wheel or tyre size and gearbox changes, it also records your top speed, very easy to wire in March 30, 2014 at 9:15 pm #10568
had a few issues with the rack, it started leaking due to over tightening a banjo against a part of the rack and splitting it open, but at the same time done me a favour it had to come out because the tie rod was hitting the inner wheel and was causing the wheel to over steer on parking specially 3 point turns, so hopefully this is the answer to cure that little problem , mk2 lhd rack with vw transporter t5 tie rod and endsMay 6, 2014 at 9:35 pm #10652
that little mod worked a treat, now gotta sort out the ackerman effect, even though the lhd rack wont cure it, so been digging around and turns out from 2008 the audi a4 have moved their steering from the bulkhead and mounted under the engine in front of the driveshafts, bingo
so sourced a rack next job fit it, slightly larger in diameter but should fitJuly 6, 2014 at 8:05 am #10747
one small up date its been into the spray booth, now looking minty freshNovember 29, 2014 at 11:03 pm #10745January 14, 2017 at 8:27 pm #21503
