    Thanks Mate. Regarding the Poly bushes, I never even gave that a thought, I suppose I was just thinking about the longevity of them. I’ll stick with the standard ones in that case. Do you know if we have the pleasure of these still being available from the stealers?

    Had a few private messages regarding the LED bulbs i fitted so thought i should probably post them here. I brought them from here:

    http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/

    I brought and paid for SKU: 382LED36SBA which are £15.99 for the pair however they sent me SKU: 382LED60SBR-1 which are £11.99 each! Not complaining but dont know if they would do it again.

    The resistors i brought off ebay from here but any resistors from ebay will do:

    Re: bushes, yep should be available. Not cheap, but should be cheaper than Powerflex. They'll last at least 10 years.

    Saving up for a set of coilovers is very boring so just been doing a few things around the car that doesnt cost and also maintenence (Service, tyres etc). Midland vw told me the Tarox discs were the wrong way round, rather embarrassing. I must have said i didnt fit them 20 times to cover my back :LOL:
    All better now.



    Whilst the car was at Midland VW they changed the fuel filter for me. Apparently it hadnt been changed for a long time and it was full of rather nasty 'sludge'! Anyhow, the weekend just gone was the first time i have had chance to take it out and my god!!! What a transformation! The difference is like night and day, its drives so smoother and generally power feels better, never thought just a filter could make that much difference.

    And couldn't resist this, Just makes me want to quote Back to the Future. "Where were going, we dont need roads"



    Are removing the injectors easy on a VR? I know the MK3 Golf is OBD2 but if i buy a VR Golf haynes manual is it likely to help? Not too fond of the bentley book.

    Am i a lucky boy then?

    Removed my dashboard today to replace with a shiney new one and rather alarmingly i was greeted with this.




    Am i right in thinking i'm lucky this hasnt caused a fire? The brown wire has melted quite far up too.

    So the first thing on my list is the DIY mod to put a fuse on this wire but the whole wire is pretty shot! Does anyone know how to replace the whole wire from the block connector? Is it a matter of brute force to pull the wire from the block and replace or do i need *to buy something? Bit of a dumb question i know but i dont want to yank on it if there is a certain way it is removed.*

    And what do people replace the gray sponge around he wires with, mine is litterally falling to pieces!!!

    I replaced the whole dash wiring loom on my VR recently and had to remove a few of the cables from the connectors as I didnt want to just botch them.
    I used two large paper clips and pushed them in from the pin side of the connector to remove the cable, you should see two small notches where the paper clips need to be located, if you straighten the paper clips and push them as hard as you can into the slots then the cable should just pull out fairly easily.
    Once you have managed to get one cable out the rest becomes obvious. I would personally see if you can find a replacement section of loom first and possibly just replace this section from the fuseboard to whatever its controlling.

    Pm me if you want more details on how to remove the pins succesfully. There is also a tool designed for removing them but its not cheap.

    Wear gloves when handling burnt wiring insulation, nasty stuff, it can lead to amputation if it gets under the skin.

    Cheers mate, when you say not cheap, how much we talking? Do you know what the tool is called? I only ask as I am making my own head light loom also so could come handy, my wallet likes the paper clip idea though

    Never thought about replacing it, I have a spare from the Rado we are breaking so that wouldn't be an issue. Do you recommend this because its easier or because there could be other issues?

    Cheers for your help mate, much appreciated.
