Mk5 Golf - Jetta - Eos / Re: Knocking/Ticking Noise from Air Vents

Mine does that all the time. I think it has something to do with the "neutral" position of the flaps not being set correctly. I think this can be remedied with a VCDS. I have not gotten around to doing mine. I just keep the stereo turned up :-)

I don't really care but my links work again, just not using PB any longer or paying them.

Pretty sure the whole internet thinks the same.

They shot themselves in the foot, and may never fully recover from it. If they'd handled it better, they could be doing so much better.

Hi all, I know this topic has probably been overdone but I'm looking for recommended places for a full carbon clean for my B7 RS4 in Auckland? A couple of quotes came back over $2K which seems pretty excessive. Thanks!

quite right, but if a safety feature is fitted, it must be operational

Phantom - there is no law requiring a car to be fitted with a brake pad wear sensor.
Its something many manufacturers started adding to their cars. So the general population can continue spending their time think about other things. Only when the warning pops up, would they need to do anything.

I disabled my own cars sensors as the uprated pads I installed had no wear sensor at all. This is my reasoning behind it.

The R32 Mirrors on my own car. Were different to the Japanese spec stubby mirrors
However they where shorter than the ugly huge mirrors the NZ new cars were equipped with.

OP - are you wanting to replace your R32 mirrors or would you like to add R32 mirrors to your project?

Good info there, thanks Heylin. Got to love that v6 burble. Might have to just give that easy mod a go. Can you tell me how that flapper valve normally operates?  Is it controlled by open throttle or does ECU have its way?

Mk2 doesn't have one but I believe it's vacuum operated, bit like TVIS system in MR2, simply bung it up to stop the valve closing under vacuum.

There are standard sized mirrors and then stubby mirrors, which seem to be on a lot of Japanese spec models. You should be able to get some of either type from a wrecker if you are after a used replacement/s.
