Re: Reverse lights no worky ??

yes that is the one, if you pull the plug off and bridge the connections your reverse light should illuminate, if it does then it's a fault with the switch/actuation of the switch, if it doesn't it's a wiring issue/fuse/bulb fault

Re: Running cables to rear view mirror.

the neatest way would be to remove the windscreen and peel back the headlining and route the wires up the A pillar and along the reinforcement panel to the mirror and breakout as required, the same way that vw routed the wiring to the illuminated sun visor mirror but there's not a lot of room in the...

Re: Need some advice after a 13 year absence from the forum!

it should run fine with the MV ecu running it as long as you have the digifant distributor with no vacuum advance; have you got the valve preload on all cylinders correct, what's the compression like, sounds like it is a misfire type issue perhaps, what's the state of the disi cap, rotor, plugs and ...

Re: Fuel tank sender unit differences

doesn't appear to be any reason for the difference as the circuit board and the gauge didn't change, neither does the tank or seal or plug, I'm guessing it was a manufacturer change, there was a suffix D as well no idea what that was for; you can test it before putting the tank back

Re: 2.1 DJ idle/CO

Just a FYI the CO screw in the AFM has a o-ring seal on it, if this has failed or is damaged then air can be drawn down the threads

Re: Big sunroof on my 1986 T25 Caravelle

The full instructions for maintenance of the roof are in the Bentley manual. It sounds like the gears in the winder mechanism are worn, though that maybe the cables. The seal is on the main roof on the edge that the inner roof seals against, it's a felt covered tube that can compress and make a seal...

Re: JX to AHU 1Z MTDI engine conversion, what do I need

The AHU flywheel fits inside the bellhousing , though I'd recommend going to a dual mass flywheel to the gearbox cope better with the new engine. If you use the AHU one then you'll need to do a hybrid clutch using the WBX friction plate which matches the splines on the gearbox input shaft, or change...

nope, he's going to have to do a manifold mod, there's a good post on here back in 2016 iirc where the guy made a manifold out of three different ones that allowed it to fit in a 2wd without raising the lid, it was very tidy work

Re: Seat Runner Fixing Method

to put that into context our seats are only fixed to the upper runners by 4 off 6mm HT bolts through the frame into welded half to 3/4 nuts, a lot of 80s era Recaro seats were only secured to the runners the same way, then they went to 6 off, nowadays I think seats might use M8s to bolt them to the ...

Re: Speedo Calibration woes.

820 is a US spec Vanagon speedo possibly, mentioned on Samba as alternative to 805, possibly they had different rules about speedo reading, the european spec basically reads something like 5-10% over, the Americans maybe had a different legal requirement, may even have been state specific hence they...

Re: Clutch issue: spongey and leak underneath

when did you last change your brake fluid, when did the slave cylinder last get changed ? Brake fluid is hydroscopic, steel and water = rust Brickwerks sell the best of the cheap ones for £12.40, I don't know if the Bosch boxed one is any better, Bosch are not an oem supplier of brake parts, so prob...
