Mk6 Golf - Jetta - Scirocco - Beetle / Re: 1.4 tsi (CVAD) cam locking tool.

Concerning!

TBH, Ive not found one either!.... I was assuming it was like the 2.0 tsi ones (that also destroy themselves!) The 2.0 ones look similar, but with an external rachet on the end... Other models had one built into the side.

Im not surprised they STILL have issues, if thats how they function! I'd heard about manual trans cars slipping the chain, after being left in gear on inclines and tension being applied to the chain, backwards.

If that were mine, and I was confident it was "correct", I'd be looking to fit a limiting device, to reduce the amount of slack it was possible to create.

First though, by chance; does the outer timing cover limit the travel, once fitted???

I dunno about 98 to 100, but I can 100% feel the difference between 95 and 98 in my R32 powered Touran.

More low end, and the very slight bogging due to timing retardation at very low RPM disappears entirely, even in hot weather.

A4 - S4 - RS 4 - A5 - S5 - RS 5 / B8 S4 Avant lowering
« Last post by Long Black on June 15, 2021, 02:56:23 pm »
here again....My Brilliant Red S4 Avant looks the deal with Niche Misano 19in x 8.5 rims in Anthracite. BUT!!!...the car is sitting higher than my old A4 and from the front and rear looks a little odd. SO!!..what lowering springs does VASK recommend? I don't want it slammed, just filling up the arches and giving the car the stance it deserves...so possibly a spacer set too if need be. I have been quoted on Eibach, but open to HR or anything that suits Audi.

Finally got it done last weekend.

As you all suggested, after replacing the valve, it's now cold and dry.

That tensioner isn't working - it's supposed to have a rachet built in, so it can only come out, and not return in.
this video is of replacement, new on is the same number as mine.

Ignorance be damned.

Excellent move for sure. The bit I like is an ethanol free alternative at Gull like pricing to BP and to a lesser extent Mobil.

Technical Stuff / Head lights on Passat are useless
« Last post by B5Passat on June 14, 2021, 09:48:29 pm »
On my 2012 Passat my head lights on are useless. I can barely see anything at night. I definitely miss having xenon lights that my other Passats had. What options are there to upgrade them either with new headlights or bulbs etc?

I have contacted VW, searched for days on internet. Still can't find a tensioner with a ratchet for this CAVD motor. Where did you get one from if I may ask please?
This is what VW tell me is the latest.

I had a mate telling me all about this last week, he was saying he could feel the difference.

I can only dream of being able to feel the difference 2 octane points make. I recon with that level of sensitivity I would also be able to understand why my wife is angry with me 20% of the time.

Alas. Ignorance will forever haunt me.

Great move from the company selling it though, I recon there are many "petrol heads" out there that will love it.
