Re: Cruise control instalation and alternative parts.

Personally, if I was retrofitting CCS to an auto T3, I would wire it with J60. Any relay with a normally-closed pair of contacts would do. Often these are the 5-pin variety, and the normally-closed contacts are pin '30' and '87a'. Referring to the above diagram, connection 'a' goes to terminal 50 fr...

Re: Cruise control instalation and alternative parts.

Re. the difference between auto/manual CCS wiring is simply that in the auto, J60 (normally-closed four pin relay) is substituted in place of F36 (clutch pedal switch). As already mentioned, the factory CCS wiring diagrams do not show any 'pulse doubler' relay. Possibly its some sort of factory 'bod...

Re: Cruise control relay....?

I'm not aware of the vacuum-operated Subaru cruise you are referring to. I'm only familiar with systems fitted from the late '90's, which are in two forms, both with electric connections to the actuator. One style (pictured above) uses a round actuator (possibly this contains a diaphragm), the other...

Re: Cruise control relay....?

I've got a complete NOS in the box, Subaru Forester retro-fit cruise kit here. I don't see why it couldn't be used with a WBX just as well with a minor mod to link it to the throttle. I 'just' need to make a harness for it though before offering it for sale. One of those 'roundtuit' jobs.. Both my v...

Re: Cruise control relay....?

I've the dash bit of the CCS (wiring and module) knocking around here somewhere, but not the actuator, or the stalk (I wish !). The CE2 cruise stalk is pin-compatible with the CE1 stalk, but swapping to CE2 stalks is a fair bit of work. Plus you'd really want the longer early T4 CE2 stalks, which ar...

Re: Cruise control relay....?

The '253 035 327 A' control unit/relay is not shown on the cruise-control system wiring diagram. I've the complete ring-bound folder here. There is just the control unit I already mentioned. Nor is it shown on the Bentley illustration. I just did an 'ATP' search in ETKA, and it is not found. So, fur...

Re: Cruise control relay....?

May I suggest OP takes that bit of black tape off the relay, reads the part number which I suspect it is presently concealing, posts the part number on here so an ID can be attempted. Or he/she could try simply googling for it him/herself. In case OP is not aware, a VAG part number usually is compri...

Re: Cruise control relay....?

Doesn't the relay have a part number on it ?

Re: Cruise control relay....?

The item pictured is not the CCS control unit, which is a 'double width' box, part number 443 907 305.

Re: Alternative instruments and switchgear

Yep, you need a Canbus ECU though. Assuming your AFN is 80-pin (the majority are) you need the GA suffix ECU. The 'upgrade kit' I sell includes a unit such as the one pictured, modified to get the fuel gauge to read the right way round, and an interface board to make connecting it up much easier tha...

Cool ! That's good to know ! How do you set the ignition timing in that setup ?

Re: Digifant lump replace with Digijet

The main mechanical difference MV > DJ is the compression ratio. I suspect this might be show-stopper as far as swapping the 'lump' over and keeping all else the same, but others far better informed than myself on such things will be along soon I hope. Personally I would swap over the whole engine-m...

Re: The good old engine debate....

Re. AGG, don't overlook the ADY, which is basically the same, also it was fitted to the Sharan and various Seat cars. I'm in the Lancaster district. I don't have a workshop though (if that's what you were thinking) so I can't offer to do swaps for folk. I operate on a mail order basis for my electri...

Re: The good old engine debate....

Here's my take on an AFN swap: http://www.brick-yard.co.uk/forum/afn-tdi-install_topic72735_page1.html 8 years later its still going strong, currently my daily, and returns ~33mpg. I'm still very happy with it, but it wouldn't suit everyone. The AGG doesn't have quite the grunt, but would be more ci...

Re: Slider lock action

Pff.. I got the screw drilled out OK. Then I had a go at tapping the cylinder out from behind through the little square access hole, using a small flat screwdriver. Access is pretty poor and you're tapping at quite an angle. After a few taps the cylinder moved a mm. Great I thought, I'll work back a...
