Hi guys and gals, ive been researching that if you block of the egr on the tddi that you get better low end torge, better mpg, emissions is lower, bit nippier, no waiting for the turbo to kick in when u over take and a few other bits. Is this true is so where do i get one from and is the difference worth it??

Rear Brake Bleeding

21 July 2014 - 02:14 PM

Hi guys got the conversion done from drum to disc and due to work j only get weekends to work on it, this weekend when i had the chance i went to bleed them and hay presto nothing. I cleaned out the nipple and checked everything, there is Fluid getting to the caliper but not bleeding thru the nipple, so i am wondering is it possible that when i pushed the cylinder back in is it possible to push it to far into the caliper so that it stops the fluid pushing on the cylinder? If so whats the best way to push it out abit so that the fluid runs back thru again? Am considering just getting refurbs a pair from ebay 130

Rear Caliper Issue

14 July 2014 - 05:43 AM

Hi all finally got around to finshing the conversion this weekend and must say was easy dispite me trying to rush it a few weeks ago and got calipers on the wrong way, lol. Well i changed the hoses yesturday and then went to bleed them start driver side rear first, confused to find that when i undone the bleeder nipple nothing came out, when i pressed the pedle a few times. So i done a little test and undone the rubber hose from the caliper and hay presto brake fluid came out. So the fault lays with the caliper it self, question is are they easy to rebuild or shall i just ebay a couple of off these? I have no time scale to do this as the car is in my garage as i only work on it weekends. Or they cheap to buy new??
