  1. Accident Advice

    i reccomended a dixon winch bumper to a mate. was a delay due it being a custom one that had to sit higher to accomendate for the body lift. it also had to have the recovery points mounted lower down to retain maximum streaght duing recoverys. when it arrived look beautiful and fittment was mm perfect so id deffo reccomend any of his work.
  2. i used them back in april for a set of +5 britpart shocks as they were cheapest as they were on offer. ordered on saturday, got email on sunday saying process, another on monday saying dispatched, and arrived couple days later. so id recomend them bases on my experiance. id have hoped for a better outcome for rich as its become public and they've even comment here...
  3. most likley the electronic actuator module. done a few on the 2.2 engines, best off getting a fault code and then having a search.
  4. Which anti corrosion spray

    no one has mention buzz weld yet..?
  5. Turbo, Wastegate or some other problem – please advise.

    few things to check if you havnt already is the small pipe to the wastgate hasnt split. if i t hasnt i would use a pump/compressor and gentally pressurise the wasatgate pipe and watch the actuator, it it doesnt move, either its seized in the turbo housing or the diagram has split in the actuator, if its seeized then you need to gentally "work" it. altho not as easy as a 200tdi lol.
  6. OT Skoda Gearbox Question

    cant comment on its history etc, but a customer of our has just got a 09 plate a6 2.7. (very nice btw) came in for a check over and it had a brand new shiney gearbox. only has 65000miles.. also a friend who is a car saleman, had one in a 11 plate passat fail.. £2500 for him to sort. threw it back in auction in the end. wasnt aware its just a prgramming issue? wonder if vag will still warrenty it if vehicle warrenty has ran out as i known fault?
  7. wheel spacers

    whats the problem with spacers? run mine for near 2years with out any ill effect. can happilty run 12mths with out even touching bearings/kingpins.. looks good. helps steering. helps stabilty. allows alloys on older hubs. only a win win for me.
  8. Paddock modular so - anyone else sell them?

  9. Who is the OEM for the 200tdi viscous fan?

    i assume youve done the newspaper test? tbf, an oem clutch isnt far off a electric fan kit. if/when mine starts getting hot, ill be going elctric as my clutch failed after 3 days of owning it.
  10. 200Tdi Leaking Fuel Injection Pump

    i thourght the 200tdi has a bolt and a spacer on the side? set pump timing, slacken bolt to remove shim and nip bolt bolt up which holds timing set? we took a (non lr VE) pump to the injecter specilist in swindon who replaced just the nose seal for us. did a good job and cheap. les also highly reccomends him.
  11. 200Tdi Leaking Fuel Injection Pump

    if the belt is contamilnated with diesel, then it needs changing, belt with just disintergrate in no time, witnessed it twice. better safe than sorry.
  12. may have the apprentices snap on 40" snap on KRA roll cab for sale soon. cheap as has 2 popped spotwelds but doesnt affect it. with wooden top. in extreme green too is anyone interested?
  13. Black smoke

    when you say reconfigured, i assume you mean adjusted to increase boost? need to be more carefull as defenders wont go int limp mode when over boost when compared to discos. when remaped did they surgest what psi to adjust boost levels to and have you got a boost gauge fitted?
