  1. I needed to do this and came on here for a guide...all the ones on here say to remove the glass then mess about with clips to remove it. I couldn't figure this out without feeling like i was going to break something so I checked Youtube and found this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rl0-1K8DL5I It's a polo in the video but the mirrors the same. It works perfectly and is super easy! Most of you probably already know about this, but I though it was handy!

    Gerti - My 'New' Gti

    Nice, I used to have a black one! So nice when they're clean...unfortunately doesn't last too long! Have to agree on disliking the original Steering wheel. Tempted to get a Lupo 3L one for mine!

    Hello from Sheffield

    Nice car, quite like those wheels! I'm around Sheffield/Barnsley fairly often, I'll have to keep an eye out for it!

    Cheers! I wouldn't want it too low. Worrying about hitting speedbumps and stuff is not my idea of a good time! Going aftermarket, but I will be keeping twin pipes, I want it to look how the janspeed one looked basically! Cheers! I do love the blue!

    Went All Types in North Wales today, not a bad day! The car's looking spot on with the Coilovers finally on and I've got a new exhaust getting sorted on the 9th of June! All coming along nicely

    Wanted- GTI back box heat shield

    Sorry for another topic, but is anyone breaking a GTI or got a spare one of these lying around? Mine is just...missing. part number is 6X0803310N if that helps anyone? And i'm guessing it's just held on with those circular clip things? Failing that is the rear heat shield even totally necessary if I don't find one? I feel like all heat shields do is come loose and rattle, Can't imagine there is too much heat at the back box compared to further along anyway.

    Wanted - Boot bump stops

    I'll have a look, cheers! The bootlid doesn't half bang about with it missing!

    A guy up near Windermere had it on his, but he's putting his back to standard to sell so he offered it to me as a swap plus cash. Wanted the boot handle smoothed anyway so it made sense!

    haha it's on the list, drives me insane every time i see it!. Stainless cat-back will be getting fitted at some point in the near future!

    Got a new bootlid, mk5 golf handle! All the internals are there. Just needs powering I think Improves the look of the car infinitely in my opinion! Gonna stick a GTI badge back on and I'll be sorted
  14. gonna order a new switch tomorrow. Does anyone know what's best to use to remove the collar that holds on the lock housing? Bearing puller maybe?
