    AIrcon problems

    It wasn’t fun, Dave the mechanic did use a few choice words when I picked the car up....😂 Just to clarify what I wrote earlier- It was a combination of rotten pipes and air con. evaporator which meant the system was very slowly loosing gas over time.... Works a treat now when it’s warm enough outside to run it all up. Martin.

    AIrcon problems

    Based on what I went through to fix my air con., I would recommend finding a garage you know and trust that has air con. leak testing equipment and get them to test the system out unless you have already done so. After having two pipes replaced along with a cooling fan, it turned out to be some pinholes in the air con. evaporator outlets where it joined onto the air con. evaporator valve.... Hopefully your issues will be cheaper and easier to fix than mine was 😎 Martin

    best place to buy parts!!!!!

    There was a TPS in Dundee, not too sure if still there though.... Tayside TPS, Myrekirk Road, Dundee, Angus, DD2 4SU. 01382 614400 Regarding what prices you will pay for parts, I think this will largely depend on the individual TPS outlet you go to. Have fun, Martin

    Vw Lupo Press Cars

    A very big long shot I know , but might this be an ex. press car- it seems to have a “Volkswagen UK” rear number plate frame, unfortunately I can’t quite see what the picture shows....😥 https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F143015918626 (I know a previous owner might have added the ‘frame if it does say Volkswagen UK, but thought it was worth mentioning) Martin
  7. Please come and diagnose my driver’s seat?🙏🏻 Martin😃
  8. Fiddle sticks, I was hoping you weren’t going to say that....😂 Now how are you with diagnosing squeaky seats....😁 Martin 😃
  9. @lupogtiboy Believe you me, I very nearly did not reinstall it....😂 @Rich I will get you to do the job next time....😉 Got any idea what I could have disturbed that would put the EPC light on?😢 Martin😃
  10. You would need seriously small hands to change it without removing the air intake pipe work....😂 Now who do I know that has small hands..... @mscherryviolet where are you????😁 Martin😃
  11. What a pain in the proverbial it is to get to😡, not a job I want to do again in a hurry....😂 I have taken a few photographs which I will eventually get around to uploading here with a description, in case it will help anyone else in the future😎 I pray for anyone else having to this task, that is dry when you do so....🙏🏻 Martin😃
  12. Good morning everyone 😁 As per the title, how do you change the OSF GTi indicator bulb? 😳 i know how to change it- but NOT how to get access to the back of the headlight without going mad or breakage as there is lots of wiring and air ducting in place which does not seem easily removable....😥 I have used the search facility on here but have not yet been able to find anything, so any relevant advise/help/further information greatly appreciated....🙏 Thank you in advance everyone, Martin 😃

    Cherry’s Fresco

    My brain isn't quite outputting things in an understandable order at the moment, so apologies in advance in case what I am about to type comes across as impolite etc.... I would explain contrast as being like two things not normally thought of going together, for example Green and Black's Dark Chocolate with chilli. Maybe in terms of your car- if Fresno Green is a metallic colour, then maybe the metallic finish of the anthracite RX2 wheel centres would pick up on the metallic finish of the body colour, same if you had an almost different colour on the RX2 rims then maybe an aspect of the rim colours would pick up/go with the other colours on/in your car? What about that metallic Corrado colour for the centres with metallic anthracite rims? Martin.
