  1. oil buzzer 16v help

    I seen the same put on a diesel engine swap in a Mk3.. The small engine loom was different on the new engine compared to the old, everything plugged in perfect just the pin-out of the main engine block connector was different, swap the old loom onto the new engine and was perfect. Maybe something simular to look at I know nothing about MK2's.!
  2. I see a lot of ERA sensors coming into work it the VW logo's and parts number ground off, ya might get lucky with one, I didn't think VW one would be £150+
  3. What brand sensor have you been getting..?

    ​I love it... Stops me from speeding a lot I think..
  6. Seanie's MK3

    Got my cruise control up and running after a long battle. I imported the system from the US a long time ago but only got it up and running 100% lately. It's been working perfect ever since and holds it's speed very well. In a anything else but a TDI Mk3 that would be fly-by-wire it's a vacuum based system with the pneumatic actuator that pulls on the accelerator to adjust your speed. The controller used a signal from the speedo sensor in the box to regulate your speed fairly accurately. Theres lots of safety interlocks to prevent any possibility of a runaway situation. If you find yourself slowing to let someone turn in off the road and hit the resume button it will bury the pedal to the floor to get you back to the set cruising speed as quick as possible. The controller seams to be based on PID logic as it's gets closer to the set speed it backs off on the power and only ever overshoots buy 1-2 mph. Vacuum pump bolts in behind the washer bottle Control box sits in behind the dash to control everything, the most common point of failure with these systems. I had to send mine to the US to get fixed. Switches mount to the clutch and brake peddles. They are supposed to be mounted using these little push in fastners, but hey were a serious PITA so I used some industrial looking nuts. Work perfect for adjusting the switch in in out to match the peddles Actuator works the accelerator peddle. Stalk bolts in simple Theirs a small loom to connect along with the vacuum hose from the pump to the various components. This loom need to be extended a few feet so that it's long enough to run across the dash, out the firewall and as far as the vacuum pump It's fairy easy to install once you know what your doing.! There's a few wiring mods need to make it run in a RHS non ABS car but nothing to complicated. Most of the mechanically stuff bolts up to the exiting body, peddle box and will work with a engine petrol or diesel.
  7. Clocks,Loom to the clocksRadiatorSide mount and pipingHydro lines if you use the TDI boxBasically else everything under the bonnet.!!It's not as big of a job to take out the dash and get the whole peddle box out in one go, an hour would have it all out properly especial in a yoke your only pulling parts from. Most TDI boxes have longer ratios than D or TD's, Seen a few people with Td'd putting in TDI boxes to stretch its legs a bit in 5th. ON the out look for a ASD box myself if I can find one.
  8. MK3 Meet Sunday 15th

    ​I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of decent looking MK3's that were at the MLVW last weekend as well, They seam to be making a small comeback, easy to see why when you see the price of a MK2
  9. Mk3 GTi daily - the car I'm "not modifying"

    Was nice to see all the GTINI boys down in the midlands the weekend.. Every one thought there was a diesel AAZ under the bonnet from your reg.!!! It's a pain breaking down that far away from home. One of my friends has a habit of breaking down once he gets over the border, once with a blown turbo, second with a leaking oil feed line.! If I had seen you on the side of the road we would have stopped. There was one man with us who's shed is only a few mins out the road, he's a Mk3 man who would have probably had a VR box there aswell. We would have had ya up in running in a few hours.!! She's a credit to you... (The L200 wheels on your girlfriends Passat looked the part as well.)

    Made a new upper manifold EGR blank out of some thicker steel and got a OE blank for the exhaust manifold side (Part No:038 131 925 A) both fitted with new OE gaskets. That's the last of the leaks in the engine bay sorted.

    I originally got a €30 kit on Ebay, but when it arrived the quality was fairly crap.. Got them all off the dealer in the end.
  12. Seanie's MK3

    ​I'm going to fit the three boxes ya, obviously i'm not going to use the cat. I'm not sure how an exhaust designed for a petrol is going to sound like on a dirty diesel. I hope it's going to be pretty quiet when done. Never seen or used the clamps before but hopefully there are a good job and better then dirty, rotten, rusty U-clamps.
  13. Seanie's MK3

    Little clips to hold in the back bumper. Had to get them from Volkswagen Classic Parts/ VW Parts International because there are NLA in the dealer. Part No: 1H0807435
  14. Seanie's MK3

    Got a 2.5"/63mm Jetax Going to try these Exhaust bands to put it together. Interesting to see how good they are, hopefully better than U-Clamps All new hangers, rubbers and gaskets Obviously I'll be weighing in the cat.! Doo is going to make me up a nice little replacement pipe to fill in the gap between the resonator and the orginal down pipe (arn't ya Doo :-w )
