Maybe, I'll do the steering one first as that's safety/ maintenance related..

Will have a more detailed read and consult on the brake mods. By Wiki'ing we are implicitly condoning... ;)

It's under Diesel engines because it's they that need a new one fitting when alternating VW engines.. ? [OK could have worded that better]

Is it worth adding this pic to the coolant flashing light topic in the Wiki?

Having seen a few 2.1 bad running posts today, with lots of folks scratching thier heads, I'd like to add somewhere in the relevant wiki section that removing the metal sheaths off the spark end of the HT leads if they are present sorted out months of turmoil for my 2.1MV and could have saved me £hundreds in parts and labour changing things like the Airflow meter and Thermostat. They're only there to prevent interference with your AM radio signal, and due to the build up of grime and potential weakness in the general electrical system one of mine was allowing an intermittent spark to arc out and earth on the engine block causing a misfire (sometimes strong enough to stall the engine). Removing them immediately balanced out both emissions readings and timing and has breathed new light into an engine I feared the worst for!

Thanks

I think it would be nice to have a way of uploading and displaying how to videos?

Would be handy for a lot of people who can't and would also motivate people who can do some of the jobs that go hand in hand with van ownership.

I've got a huge online server I'd be happy to donate space on to make this happen.

What's wrong with youtube and post a link if you have made a video?
