  1. Insurance help please

    what job is declared can make a big differece, its funny how dental nurses get cheaper insurance that any other job group
  2. Missing cable

    wouldnt say missing, just not part of the spec of that car, you find allsorts of plugs not used on cars as they like to use the same loom for every model
  3. 8 awg cable

    Make sure the cable run is as short as possible, and the earth is the same size cable and bolted to a clean earth point, check your voltages with a multimeter, it will be obvious if your getting a voltage drop, if after checking all youre connections are ok then you may need to go to next size cable, if its not working now then it defo wont work when you upgrade
  4. Towing dolly hire in the Surrey area??

    If your transporting a car that got no tax, no mot or insurance then all 4 wheels needs to be off the ground for transport

  6. Lupo GTI High Beam light

    why couldnt they just use a twin filament bulb like the rest of the planet
  7. bit more information ont he problem may be more usefull, you could end up bypassing the immobilser and simply find out that one of the sub components connected to it is failing, like the 109 relay or the fuel cutoff solenoid, with Immo3 the instrument cluster may connected to it so as we found out with my sons polo a few dry joints was causing immobiliser problems for him finding the problem and fixing it at source would be the way I would go but thats just me, bypassing would be a last resort just a note if the immobiliser is kicking in the engine will start and cut after a few seconds, if the engine does not run at all then the problem may not be the immobilser
  8. Urgent help required

    you got 2 codes but they may end up being the same thing as they both seem to relate to the throttle assembly http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/17950/P1542/005442 http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/17953/P1545/005445
  9. Adjusting tickover on my SDi

    it proves that the lead and software are working, unless the early versions where unlocked it looks like you in the same boat as me, I'm selling my lupo so I'm even less inclined to spend the £90 to register the software to fix somthing I've already lived with for 2 years,lol
  10. Rear Window Pop Out's

    they deform when you start tighening the bolts some need a tool to set but you can use this method
  11. Rear Window Pop Out's

    you may need these
  12. When i did mine I used a Hawk kit, when you tell them the car you have they provide a wiring diagram for the car, that made thing s bit easier as you can have negative locking, positive locking or vacuum locking so helps to know which one to use
  13. Help needed!!

    is there a part number on the tube
  14. Torque Specs

    sorry not list, i even check sdi for comparison also not listed, when i did my sons car they where tight to undo so they went back in tight
  15. Amp advice please

    what radio have you got, amps are generally driven by RCA input (red and white plug), if your radio has these on the back then thats good news, if not you will need somthing like a PC1-601 Line Output Connector from halford that converts speak output form your radio to the required rca standards you need to think about where you are placing your amp. it will need a direct feed from your battery, with the fuse as close to the battery as possible, getting this feed to the amp is about 80% of the job
