Re: Front caliper spring clip

No you can't take it off ! The clicking is most likely the new pads moving in the carrier when the brakes are applied.Solution? different brand pads usually.

Mine holed by rubbing on a jubilee clip, I cut the piece out and joined up with a bit of flexi pipe.

Re: FMIC FOR MINE

I fitted a universal one in the same manner as Desertstorm in the how to section, much better than fixing to the crash bar. Is it worth fitting? Not unless you are going to go the whole hog with injectors, turbo etc, but the choice is yours.

Re: New noise - drone

The job isn't difficult. The bolts on the front need to come off, then follow the line of the centre bolt through the block and at the back of the web to which the fan is bolted you will find access to an allen bolt, 6 or 7mm. Come back to the front, find a thin spanner for the centre shaft and ther...

FREE PARTS

Due to the departure of my wagon I have some parts to give away. As I have gained so much over time from this forum, hopefully I can help some others out. I really do not want to post anything so collection only I'm afraid, and I understand it will limit things, sorry. Front bumper, power steering p...

Re: Carry on or scrap?

I would agree with previous two.None of the niggles are major. Oil cooler is an easy swap, as are rear shocks.EGR valve, pull the vacuum pipe off, block it with a bolt, a la Gazwould, buy a complete j&r driveshaft off ebay. As Gazwould suggests, take off the metal inner door panels and reseal, or le...

Re: bye bye baby

GONE :( but the lad who bought it loves it so it's not so bad. It looked a real classy car as he was driving away, strange, you never see yourself in it so don't know how good it looks. He didn't seem to think the vibration was anything, maybe I was just being pedantic? Oh well, onwards and upwards,...

:(( :(( On ebay at last, maybe my best car ever. The ebay number is on classified on this forum. As always I'm more than interested in any comments, good or bad but constructive if you can. The a6 will have to become something special to give me the same buzz, especially in the braking department, I...

Re: new diesel smoke limits in mot from 20th may

I don't know what is up with some testers. I think we all know that we can make a bit of smoke in an old diesel, the ministry don't encourage us to fail vehicles, quite the contrary, but you know how it is with some blokes. Also, quite a few proprietors want work from MOT's so it pays to know the re...

Re: MOTORISED FLAP PROBLEM

Can't remember the number James, but it did clear.I'm going to put on a replacement egr/throttle body, I'll let you know how it goes. The lad at the breakers said it's the most common fault with the BRE engine.

Re: MOTORISED FLAP PROBLEM

No, when you take it apart James it's in the fixed open position and there's little to clean around it, the crud starts a bit further in past the motorised butterfly.
