    Door won't open

    connecting 12v to the motor was my next move and yes there is a lot of information on a gogle on the subject, a bit too much! another option is to dremel cut and expose the plastic cog and turn it as if to operate the motor manually. i need a quick fix as its the mrs car and for some reason it always has issues. another question, i read that if i was to get a replacement that they are colour coded, and installing the wrong colour will result in another deadlock. is this true? cos i know of an arosa in the scrappy down the road, or an ebay lock for £20.

    Door won't open

    Right the passenger door will not open from the inside or outside of the car, it seems that it won't unlock itself whilst all other doors do lock and unlock normally. I've tried all the obvious of tapping the lock, unlocking and locking, pushing against the door and disconnecting the power to that door. No joy. I noticed that the cable from the outside door handle to the lock was undone so I've also hooked it back on. Any suggestions please before I hack it open and replace the lock with second hand, if that's possible.

    Electric Window motor

    I've cleaned the carbon brushes and helped them move more freely to make contact on the motor, seems to be working fine for now. Lithium greased the runners and rollers on the regulator as they didn't seem to be at fault. I'll try the same on the other motor now. Without soldering the brushes are not replaceable, seems a shame to bin something with such a minor issue esp regarding the cost of a new motor.

    Electric Window motor

    I've searched the forum but see no definite answer, both windows on my arosa have been acting up. Not functioning and I can hear the motor click. The motor still clicks with the regulator disconnected. So I've removed the whole assembly motor and regulator, the regulator seems to be in good condition but I've opened the motor and found that the carbon brushes were 'seized' and wouldn't let The spring push them to make contact, also the plastic seemed a little molten. The motor whilst in operation does run hot with not much use there has also been a grinding like noise. What are the symptoms of a broken motor? I've now reassembled and although it hasn't cut out yet I now have to press the button several times to get the window up and down, I still need to check fuses. Any help would be appreciated as I don't think second hand motor is the way forward.
  7. on top EGR valve I have, on bottom EGR and engine im told i have by parts dealer one seat parts center didnt even realise that there was two egr valves on his diagram
  8. could someone please run through with me what the difference is between the engine codes on the 999 mpi, such as AER, ALD, ALL, ANV, ATE, AUC. Only the AUC as I believe had an electric controlled EGR valve. I have an 04 arosa with engine code AUC trying to obtain parts is not as easy as i thought as talking to vag parts dealer is like talking to brick wall. I need a gasket for the EGR which on my vehicle and other AUC engines including the polos are water cooled, not according to VAG whom have produce a diagram of an engine different to mine and are certain ive had an engine swap. on their diag the throttle body is on the side whilst on mine and other arosas the throttle body is in the middle of the engine at the back. I have given the part number of 030131503f which is printed on the EGR on my car, a simple internet search brings the correct EGR up and even ECP can identify the correct EGR for my car but not 3 VW parts dealers. its nearly broke into an argument with one !! Where could I buy the gaskets for the EGR as a separate item as mine is letting coolant out, plan b is to use a sealant or gasket material until I can decide to blank it off! any help would be appreciated
