  1. Thanks. Yeah that makes sense. Couldn't think of anything additional for this engine bay.
  2. Bracket with two vertical slots in it part of the mount for the rubber picture taken from the front of the car with the bracket having been bent round to stop it rubbing the insulation.
  3. Used automotive grade, self-adhesive open cell foam, single thickness sheet, similar to the original shape. Not perfect, but it looks as if it's only the TDI that has the foam as a separate item. While posting ... what's the arm extension with slots on the front left cover mounting bracket supposed to be for? Currently I have extra material so could possibly do another if anyone wants one fitted. PM me.
  4. Update: Have made a template from the VW original foam shape. The original seems to be a fairly thin, open cell construction foam.
  5. It seems that the early Arosas and 6N Polo SDis didn't have engine covers at all! Had a look at the Boyriven website. Might have to look more in detail at the specification of underfelt for this type of application.
  6. Has anyone looked at replacing the insulation on the inside of the engine cover?

    Looking for the tiny plastic pipe that runs front to rear between the EGR control unit on the bulkhead and the main servo pipe. It's clipped to the radiator coolant pipe - and about 4mm in diameter and 13" long.
  8. 0 130 107 291 doesn't seem to be the correct Bosch listing. The one I've actually seen is a 2-pin. 0 130 107 283 might be the correct one. However it appears that both these have been discontinued by Bosch anyway. Found Murray's Direct at Hatfield a helpful and informative supplier.
  9. Thanks for the posts. Have managed to double check that my build against the vin is for a 200/60 watt fan. The Hella appears to be a 250/60 for a vehicle with air con (not available as factory on the SDi as far as I'm aware). Lots of the internet listings appear to be 'will fits'. The Febi Bilstein is specified as a 200/60 and appears to be able to be UK sourced.
  10. Fan has cut in okay when stationary in traffic but made loads of noise. When the garage ran it up to temperature after radiator out for alternator change, they said it was noisy too! When spun over by hand it feels rough and graunchy. Nothing appears broken on the fan itself (curved blades) although it doesn't seem to have a balance weight/clip.
  11. Does anyone know the correct Bosch number for an SDi coolant fan? The V Dub no. is 6N0 959 455E a 200/60w 2-speed as far as I can tell. The only Bosch one I've found is 0 130 107 291 which has two pins on the connector making it a single speed motor. My current fan as fitted (a Temic) has 3 pins as has the thermostatic switch on the radiator. Whilst asking, can anyone advise on the easiest way to get the fan out as it appears blocked by the top hose on the SDi?
