  1. To be able to do the job it was imperative that I was able to deal with Tradition which I have not been able to do since just over half the people who voted said leave…. 🙈. Eventually after jumping through many hoops of fire I have been able to get an account and some of the prices are less than what they were when available directly through VAG UK although the carriage charges are outrageous BUT we had no choice. I have another €500 of parts in my basket but my customer has bought himself another Audi to practice his DIY skills and he may need a few parts for that.
  2. We are just about to start a full front to back mechanical restoration of a 95 S2 Avant, getting all the parts together has been a trial and test of patience.
  3. I just checked and there is no UK stock... typical! So many people list the application incorrectly, some even clearly state the 4 Bar unit is replaced by the 3 Bar and we all know that makes them run lean. VW Classic have them genuine at €425 😲 I can possible get Huco for around £90 but it would take a few weeks and you know who in Berlin are cheaper
  4. I have used the thin 1/8” (3mm) Dynaliner from Dynamat which self adhesive but also the VAG foam used for door inner shower curtains but I would have to look the number up at work. Found it, 3A0 867 201 H £21.24 plus some aerosol web spray
  5. New hot wire AMM’s are impossible to find, I had one from a company in Lithuania and it was worse than the old one.
  6. Remember pre 95 VR6 Golf and Corrado are 4 Bar and post 95 Golf VR6 3Bar.
  7. The last one I had this on I could not get a used or new ECU, I sent it to BBA Reman and they sent it somewhere else and it came back fixed which is a rare thing with BBA... You can still get the EG and H suffix ECU's from VW Classic https://www.volkswagen-classic-parts.com/catalog/en_uk/search?q=037906023h
  8. ECU failure is extremely rare BUT when I was working on a lot of PG engines I did experience a number of ECU failures where the internal ignition amplifier failed.

    Replacement key?

    A new key is still available under part number 1H0 837 219 A AUB for £43.90 cut to the car, TPS should be able to look up the coding and cut it to VIN.
  10. Yes but Herr Reichsfuhrer Khan is "saving the planet"
  11. Z Zap gets it wrong because ETKA also does not show it. It is an M8x45/M6x12 part number N 910 209 02 £17.40 inc VAT, no UK stock.
  12. What was the FEBI part number? Can you post a picture of the connector?
  13. The four speed right hand drive resistor 536 959 263 is not available aftermarket anywhere, the Febi resistor part number 19770 is 3 speed but if that is what you have used it should not be possible to plug it in as the centre pin is blank and won't accept the plug with five pins installed.
