Re: WBX Bleed rail clips

Danke schön👍

This should be the same for metal and plastic rail?

WBX Bleed rail clips

I have a metal bleed rail that's going in my car but no clips for it. I believe the correct part number is 121 046 255. Found one shop listing them but haven't got any reply on my email sent to them. https://www.wagenteile.de/shop_de/121046255-clip-255121046.html Anyone now where to buy them? Or hav...

Maybe I should have just said in the future, but given that the history is unknown it's more likely near future? Won't the risks involved in changing the gaskets just get higher the longer you wait?

Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

Just want to say I would definitely change the head gaskets now, it's just 1-3 hours of extra work if everything goes as planned. And you will need to do it in the near future anyway.

Pull up bar

I'm trying to figure out a good solution on adding an pull up bar. Does anyone have one?

I'm thinking about having one attached on the end of the roof, maybe one I can slide out, when I want to use it. Problem will of course be the momentum. Maybe there is no simple solution?

Impact wrench buying advice

Watching YouTube mechanics with their nice electric impact wrenches make me feel slow :)

Is it best to buy a small one then do the heavy work by hand, or is it best to buy a big one that can handle everything? I will mainly use it for T25 work.

Anyone have recommendations? Brands to avoid?

Re: Is this coolant ok

It's G-12+ so should be suitable. If your previous coolant was anything other then red be sure to flush it a few times extra.

Re: Socket Sets

I think Bahco is good value for money, but my favourites are Teng, Haze and Stahlwille

Other brands I would consider but don't have any experience with is Facom, King Dick and Wera. Someone told me Stanley now produce Britool so would be sceptical buying new stuff from them.

Re: JP Exhaust vs VW Speedshop

I have the Speedshop one, nearly had it for three years and are happy with it. I can't hear any difference in sound on motorway, but in a tunnel or anywhere where the sound reflects back to the car it's a bit more sound compared to the original exhaust. Not too loud at all, you might even end up ope...

Re: Oil Pressure Relief Value and oil filler tube

Would recommend you to clean the area around it and make sure it leakes before you do anything. If I remember correctly it's a bit hard to access one of the nut if your protecting tin and water hose is in place. Is your oil filler junction between the metal and plastic sections broken? Or why are yo...

Re: Eberspacher DA6

Price seems reasonable, but maybe second hand webasto and eberspacher units and parts is getting cheaper and easier to get hold of with all the cheap Chinese heaters that's available now? Anyway I would buy it from brickwerks if I had one or two controllers laying around, it's a quality product. I w...

Re: Eberspacher DA6

I agree with Oldiebut goodie that the noise, power and fuel consumption make it a bad solution for sleeping. I think the BA6 / DA6 is great for heating your car quickly before you go on a drive, but for an overnight heater the B2L / B2D is a better option. Brickwerks actually have the DA6 in stock h...

Re: Borked Alternator?

There is no split charge system? Thinking there might be a second battery connected in series that the previous owner had a switch or something somewhere you don't know about. It's very unlikely, but since you just got the car you never know.
