« Last post by onthebogalot on Today at 03:54:46 pm »
Hi Guys
I'm trying to get my WR on the road and badly need a head, has anyone got a turbo head that they want to part with or motor.
Any help much appreciated.
Technical Stuff / Re: DSG oil/filter service

After spending some time looking over car on weekend I ordered some parts through RockAuto.  Plugs, filters & brake pads.  Grabbed an auto trans filter so I can fly with aftermarket DSG fluid when I need to.   Will order the Haldex fluid & filter separately once I work out if its been changed already.
Hi Everyone,

Just wondering if anyone changes the cam chain and associated components on these vehicles as a matter of course as opposed to doing it when there is a problem?

As far as i'm aware these engines seem to be pretty reliable on the whole.

Thanks in advance for any tit bits of info i may not have come across.

Not a bad day for spotting today. Saw a white UR Quattro and a red B5 RS4 heading in the general direction of Auckland. Probably both vaskers! Also a few classics of other marks - 2 mustangs and a corvette.
I also bought this as I'm charging the battery at least once a week - still need to track down the source of that. But in the meantime this means I don't have to keep taking the back seat out and sorting the seatbelts out every time.

Voltage drop in the start circuit, wire in a starter relay.
Relay takes the start current instead of the wiring or ign switch.
Look up vw hard start relay for wiring instructions.  Very easy to set up with a regular 30A relay.

Looks like it might be a good idea.

Made a couple of chunky new earth cables. The starter and surrounding cables look a bit iffy. I didn't have much time today but I'll remove the starter soon and check it over, and the cables. I haven't found the third engine earth yet. Apparently it's on one of the engine mounts.
