#474685 My St / Rs Mk2 Build Up. Project Phenomenal!

Posted by salsheikh on 09 April 2015 - 12:52 PM

Nah i am ok doing it myself.....i just cant find an access point to pop off the pod that holds the guages....thought there might be a knack to getting it off.........methinks taking out the radio etc and unclipping from underneath might be a bit of a job?


Im in Newcastle btw. : )


it is easier to remove with the radio out the way. the pod is held in by tabs that you need to unclip - i used a flat screwdriver from the top in one edge and prised it out slowly but safest way is by removing the radio.

#472406 A Flat Battery Can Strand You..... What Would You Do ?

get into the boot by dropping the back seats? lower the drivers/passenger seat low enough to get into the back or squeeze through if you aint a big fella.


get your battery checked out just in case it is faulty.


come to think of it, last time i looked i couldnt access the earth cable due to how the battery is situated so jump starting could have been a big no no. looks like keeping a spare battery is the only way to go!

it would also be dependant on what gear you are in. If you are in say 4th/5th/6th then it maybe better to pick up speed in 3rd and then change up a gear.

Expect to pay anything upto £180 for a set, sometime even more!


FK do some but they are for the 05-08 pre-facelift models only - I made that mistake.....luckily I recouped most of my money back but I was extremely annoyed as it said it would fit 08 models.

#467281 Mk 2.5 1.6 Tdci Vent Woosh/turbo?

Posted by salsheikh on 19 March 2015 - 01:52 PM

are you sure the woosh or air only happens when the car is spooling up?


i know that my car when the aircon is on it will pick up speed/turn on when i start driving but not when i am stationary. it does feel like a woosh of air when it kicks in.

Im guessing it was a powerflow or longlife exhaust
They can both make whatever you want

the only way to improve performance on the 1.8 tdci is by a remap. mines exactly the same and i cant justify spending £400+ for the remap so am happy to 'cruise' everywhere!

fair play James for having the balls to do it

luckily for me i have a nice flat drive and the old man has a pit i can use and he only lives 5 mins away from me. plus if i ask nicely works let me use there's. i dont do anything major, purely cosmetic stuff. leave the hard grafting to my dad who is a mechanic.
