Also just to add, the Double Din don't always fit correctly and may need some modification to the dash to get it in. I had an issue with a Sony one being slightly too big to fit properly.

loss of power when hot or in hot temps, is more likely going to be either a temp sensor issue or water pump problems.


I would suggest getting it in to a reputable garage, let them take it out and they should be able to tell you straight away what the issue is. Either way, it's an issue with the clutch.

It's a 2.5 v6 (it's the same engine as the 3.0l)


Mileage is 107,000


The power range is now just flat out all the way through rev range, normally you would feel it switch modes at 3krpm+ (You could feel the umph) and that's gone.


Exhaust seems like the culprit, as I had a advisory on both MOT's (the pass and fail) as the sleeve on first section of exhaust is no longer fully attached and slides up and down.


I've got to do a full service on it soon anyway, as I've not changed filters since I bought it last December. So will get plugs changed at the same time as well.


No noticeable leaks from under the car, will get it up on ramps this weekend and check the hoses.


This is first time I've topped up oil in last year, so will monitor that.

I thought the mk3 used a bearing with the abs ring built in. That doesn't look like an abs bearing though


I normally just replace the whole hub, without the need of just replacing bearing (cost's about same for full hub for me). But as far as I'm aware, the ABS ring sits just inside hub.

Nether, as it's not built into the bearing. The ABS ring should be separate.
