  1. it could be a fuel filler neck seal you require
  2. could be one of the door switches for the light has got a constant earth. 2.if all the fuses are ok check for power at the tail light and that the earths are in good condition.the reverse could be the gearbox switch. 21 years old i would change the fluid first, could be a ratchet gog on the winder thats missing a tooth causing the there power to the motor on the sunroof? if there is it could be the motor itself or the tracks that are ceased up.
  3. as stated above check all the fuses, also check that the earth track to the ecu has not burnt out but to be honest anything could have been spiked and damaged including the ecu itself, even if the leads had been attached correctly you should not jump start a car with a smart charge system as the alternator can instantly chuck 18 volts through the system and cause damage, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
  4. is there anything in the booklet or on the menu settings about sound around which enables you to tune the radio to the dvd player via an FM frequency.
  5. sorry web builders but i have to agree, make it complicated and members wont bother with it,i think it now takes twice as long to scan topics
  6. the question to ask is how did the oil get onto the belt? and to make sure it dose not happen in the future.
  7. the other problem is that when fitting a helicoil you have to redrill and tap out the hole to fit the new helicoil,you may get the swarf fall into your engine from doing this.
  8. front facing Truveio cameras use an infrared flash as not to distract drivers so if you saw the falsh it was not a Truveio camera,
  9. I would say the problem is with the garage that did the tracking did not lock the steering wheel to the central position before adjusting the tracking which would cause the steering wheel to be of center.
  10. any physical alteration to the turbo will throw it of balance, lots of companys due a spray turbo cleaner so try on of these first.
  11. wow no help within 15 mins from the forum at 10pm so decided to have a go because jmurry decided to delete his own post, then wonders why he gets no assistance what an attitude.well said Stoney & Sean.
  12. the P132b code is often thrown up when the electronic turbo actuator is inactive, this is usually down to either sticking vanes in the turbo or the actuator itself playing up, the actuators can suffer from dry solder joints or wires coming adrift inside on the circuit board, if you disconnect the arm of the actuator you can check to feel any resistance on the vanes also check to see if the arm moves when the car is should move back and forth for a second.
  13. it was a common problem on the mk3 that the bottom intercooler pipe rattled against the sub frame and was cured by wedging some foam inbetween the pipe, but not heard of this on the mk4 but its one thing to check.
  14. there is no easy way it just get your hands dirty time and feel all the pipes you can ,sometime the splits are not easy to find
  15. cold start problems could be a sign that the glow plugs are past there best or not working so i would check that they are heating up correctly, the egr valve can be removed and cleaned out its a messy job but worth the effot.
