Re: Gear lever repair kit

This is often the ends of the shift cables. There’s some bushes in the selector mechanism but no kit as such

It would be a case of looking at the parts diagram and replacing the bushes from that mechanism one by one

You’ll need the errors from VCDS as these sensors can fail in multiple ways

Re: New stereo install - wiring

A 2002 should be pre canbus and already have the correct wiring on the ISO

Is it a gamma or beta unit currently fitted?

Re: E10 Fuel Clarification

The mk4 uses FPM lined fuel hoses where rubber is concerned and nylon everywhere else

It will play nice with e10 so nothing to worry about.

Ouch! 6 - wire - brown/red #2 - wire - red #7 - wire- brown/green #3 - wire- red/green On the above the brown/ wire is the negative speaker terminal If you have no sound after wiring 6/2 to one side and 7/3 to the other, you may want to look to see if someone has kindly played with the door speakers...

Re: 5W 30 Oil in a 94 1.0 Bready

5W30 in an older engine such as this can cause a variety of issues as its too thin such as piston blow by, seepage via the valve stem seals etc.

10W40 is best, 5W40 if fully synth is your flavour, but semi synthetic is more than adequate

Oh no, you've made a bit of a mess there!!

Re: VCDS clone - file .rod not found with almost all versions

These copy cables are often junk quality too and can die after a single connection. As RUM says, genuine is best

Even a VCDS lite cable and license is not that expensive.
