  2. T1 & T2 inlet manifold fault fix

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Beyond Diesel Geek Hi Folks, Thanks again to Drag aka Dragline 1570. I have just replaced my Diesel Geek CASA Inlet Manifold limit stop with Drags recommended alternative. Although the "Diesel Geek" product was an excellent piece of machining and created a fixed stop for the manifold...
  3. Treg Muster - 2019

    Hello Folks, Thanks to Ollie for the great work. Please include us as starters for Bega Showgrounds, subject to my recovery form an up and coming knee replacement surgery. Stuart........
  4. Oil Catch Can Installation - Has it been done?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Hose Solution Looks like somebody has developed a simple hose solution to make fitting the Provent 200 much simpler and should encourage other to follow suit...
  5. Canadian T3 air suspension retrofit

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    I retrofitted ACC to my T2, and yes the ABS Coding required modification. Stuart...
  6. Did This Kickstarter Company Just Reinvent The Wiper Blade?

    Vendor Deals
    Interesting concept. The big question is the relative costs. I regularly replace my wiper inserts ( rubbers) about twice a year, and never seem to have much of an issue. So it would be about 4 to 5 years till I recover my upfront cost. I wonder if they are still up to it after that period...
  7. Maximum Tyre Sizes - T1 & T2

    Brakes, Steering, Suspension, Wheels and Tires
    OK in a straight line, but forget turning left or right.......
  8. Oil Catch Can Installation - Has it been done?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Looks like your new car is less oil thirsty than the white one. Another validation to your decision to swap over. Sent from my SM-T820 using Tapatalk
  9. Oil Catch Can Installation - Has it been done?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    That is the very purpose of doing it on a diesel. Oil in the intake leads to carbon build up. Sent from my SM-T820 using Tapatalk
  10. Brake pedal firms overnight

    Hi Tony, Mine is exactly the same, and has always been like that. I put it down to a less than perfect vacuum chech valve on the booster. Stuart...
  11. Touareg towing HP?

    Off-Roading & Towing
    It seems to be a universal issue, with VW dealers everywhere. The level of dealer ignorance and dismissal in regard to what is the brands Premier Vehicle (at least here in Aust), is jaw dropping. Ask any average dealer about the capabilities of these cars and they either don't really know, or...
  12. 2008, 3.0L V6 TDI (BKS) - Oil viscosity ?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    If you have a v6 Tdi then you should go for 507 spec. However in Kenya like Australia it will never get cold enough for the first figure (5w or 0w) to make any difference. 30 weight oil is a very light oil adopted by VW to reduce friction and improve fuel economy. In very hot areas or in high...
  13. My 2008 V6TDI believes it should have Ad Blue !

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    We may have a fix ! This morning I did a hard reboot on the Treg, by disconnecting the battery and letting it stand for 4 hours. Much in the same way you deal with a PC that is paying up. Well after 4 hours, I have started back up, and what do you know, at least for the moment, I am no longer...
  14. I think my t reg might be doomed.

    Drivers Lounge
    I would be checking the condition of the lower control arm bushes in the front suspension. If they are stuffed then you will get really stupid alignment figures. The lower bushes are fluid filled and they introduce quite significant changes when they die. I replaced all my suspension control...
  15. My 2008 V6TDI believes it should have Ad Blue !

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Thanks Nick, Will do the file comparisons tomorrow. I have posted the problem on the Ross Tech Forum, and have my fingers firmly crossed. Stuart....
  16. My 2008 V6TDI believes it should have Ad Blue !

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Hi Jim, Granted however the update was done in 2012, so I would have expected it to have happened much sooner than this. In that time I have added over 160,000 km. That was 6 years ago. I am lost for ideas. I have spoken to VW and they suggest I bring the car in and let them run VAS over it...
  17. 04 V10, crank no start

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Sorry but I won't be much help at the moment. I have the information you are looking for but it is on my PC at home, which in is Melbourne, and I am currently touring around Mt Isa Queensland, which is 2,600 km away. Maybe somebody else on the Forum with access to ElsaWin can chime in with...
  18. My 2008 V6TDI believes it should have Ad Blue !

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    Not likely as it was a recalibration of my existing image file. Also that tune has been in place for 5 years without any evidence of this issue. I am slowly getting concerned as the notification has now come on at every restart. My concern is if it reaches a counter value which prevents a...
  19. My 2008 V6TDI believes it should have Ad Blue !

    Diesel Engines | R5, V6, V8, V10, R50 TDI
    For some unknown reason my December 2007 built MY08 which was constructed without provision for Urea (Add Blue), now thinks it is low on Add Blue... and is displaying a warning in the MFD. Initially it was displayed intermittently and now it is for 3 seconds on every start. I ran VCDS over it...
  20. Receiver is 13" from pin hole to ball...any experience on that setup?

    Off-Roading & Towing
    The simple solution is a hacksaw and a hand drill. I would suggest that going longer than the recomended is not a good move if you are running anywhere near maximum ball weight. The increased leverage may compromise the structure of the bar or vehicle. Stuart...
