    General Corona Virus Discussion

    Therein lies the problem, if an organisation/government etc laid down the absolute truth and facts about a contentious subject, some people would still not believe them; you will never convince a serial conspiracy theorist as they really don’t want to believe.

    General Corona Virus Discussion

    It is going to be very interesting in a few years time when studies have been made and inquiries concluded and the facts are known BUT as with all contentious subjects there are those who will never believe the truth no matter what... it's what we got for closing down metal asylums and replacing...

    How to do a forced dpf regen

    It is something I read and have said to me all the time and really irritates me. The other day I told a customer he needed a new DMF and clutch pack system on his DSG and the cost would be around £1700; the reply was that it was nearly half what he paid for the car and was not worth it. Firstly...

    2004 audi a3 3.2 quatro

    When people use erWin for the first time in the workshop information area I suggest they buy a day rate as it gives you lots of time to search, ask, download and save… you will get quicker at it. The nice thing about the ODIS side is it does not time out unless the car is changed so you can drag...

    AGM battery condition

    Over lockdown(s) I have found AGM batteries hate going flat and being revived but as VAG UK have been pushing Yuasa we had been fitting lots of them, very single 9000 AGM we fitted failed, about 50% of the 5000 EFB’s and a disproportionate number of 3000’s. Interestingly we also fitted quite a...

    General Corona Virus Discussion

    I caught COVID at the end of January 2020 I suspect at the Autosport International show at the Birmingham NEC where I spent all day with people from all over the world including China and Italy; two weeks later I was floored by something like flu (I had the flu jab three months before) and still...

    Air control system location

    Took me a moment there to work out it was a Toerag, not used to your MAR market VIN’s and I don’t recall ever working on a petrol Toerag, all fuel of the Devil here. The idle air control is performed by the throttle body, these can get dirty inside and if the battery is disconnected or goes...

    How to do a forced dpf regen

    The problem with that is in the VAG system that comes with a health warning “vehicle may burn down”.

    If like me you are a Conservative and voted for someone you thought was going to implement traditional Conservative values and instead you get some loopy tree hugging lefty woke lunatic who goes on about Brum Brum motor cars and Peppa Pig, FFS yes, definitely something to worry about.

    I can send you our PM if you like, he is nearly as bonkers as Biden and at least he has age as an excuse, Boris is just a nutter!

    Had my third jab today, the Moderna version. It will be interesting to see if it makes me feel like I have flu for 6 hours 24 hours later as I did with the Pfizer

    Audi TT MK1 1.8T AUQ random overheating

    Unfortunately it still causes fretting as people cling to the 90 reading as a sign of hope and stability, not realising it reads 90 for a real 77 and is still reading 90 at 116 so when the engine does overheat it causes panic and misinterpretation as "the gauge suddenly shoots up". VAG tried...
