Hello, was just wondering how the power steering fluid can be drained? I want to drain it has it hasn't been done in a while plus i feel like a new load of power steering fluid will help keep everything in check. Any help would be great and Pictures will also be a huge help Thanks.
Right. So my GTI is draining its battery. The battery is fine (Holds charge and copes well with a discharge test). I also bought a brand new battery over spec'd for the car and that also keeps dying. I've done the usual checks, all earths and positive cables are fine, I've removed the fuses one by one to observe a change in drain (Albeit did change - but it stayed at about 2.88A) all to no avail. Then i removed all fuses (Including engine fuses) and it read 2.88A. The weird thing is, if i leave the car disconnected (Say over night) and check the drain in the morning, it's normal (between 0.1-0.2A). If i leave the car connected to the battery the drain increases - so after a full day and night of being attached its reading anything upward of 2.8A - the highest being 3.2A!!!! I read on here that the CCM can sometimes be an issue, but my thinking is that if I've removed all of the fuses, nothing should be live? (With the exception of the starter motor as that's got a permanent live from the battery). Does anyone have any other avenues I should look at? As it's pretty tiresome having it go dead constantly. If i have no luck then i'll book it into VW so they can take a look at it. Thanks in advance, Matt
Hi all, I was wondering if comeone could point out where the drainage holes are on a Lupo GTI. Also, any recommendations on the best way to clean them out ? Given its age, I wanted to make sure they are clean so as to avoid problems in the future. Thx
