    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 well

    I would take it somewhere else, like the local VW dealers.

    Doors:
    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

    Quote:
    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!

    well its through now, little button put on the outside for entry, everything done so its probably as good as new :)

    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 car

    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 mph :)

    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 [:)]

    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 ends 1947693_10152356945054314_431169243_n.jpg

    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 fit
