  1. Got the dreaded "brake booster fautly" dashboard message on the way home from work last night. I am going to check the usual pipes etc. but to make sure I get all the leaks, I would to do a smoke test. A simple question, those who have done this or had it done, which pipe do you pump the smoke through? While I am at it I would like to smoke test the rest of the vacuum system, again does anyone know where to plug the smoke into? Edit: I have run the PIWIS and got P1431 code; Brake booster system - signal implausible Possible fault cause ♦ Leaks in brake booster system ♦ Vacuum pump worn out or mechanically faulty ♦ DME control module faulty
  2. Got the new Y pipe, fitted and all OK. Still interested in where all these pipes actually go!!
  3. Hi Everyone, I have just done the serpentine belt on my 2003 CTT, but in replacing the Y pipe, the small pipe that is on the bottom broke off. I have epoxied it back on until I can get one from my dealer. My question is where does the venturi line actually go? Just a little worried if I drive the car and the epoxy fails what is likely to happen? It is item 4 on the image
  4. This has been done on some AUDI cars, just google it
  5. Just got the same issue this weekend, pulled the rear bumper, checked all sensors, even removed all sensors and still had the 4 red leds for the rear coming on. all the wiring is good, no shorts or broken wires. Tested with durametric and got 1327, 1549, 1546, 1545. The last two are Short circuit to B+, but the wiring is good, now trying to find an easy way to test each sensor
  6. It is a difficult job requiring some specalised tools made by Hazet. I gave up and took mine to the dealership, they changed all 4 sensors (provided by me, but OEM parts) for £880 including 2 days car hire. Probably not the answer you wanted to hear, but it is a devil of a job. I am a chief engineer and have built my own car in the past.
  7. Thanks, I will check this, as in my opening post I did find the error code , but without the P, so wasnt sure if it was the same.
  8. Hi, Does any one know this fault code, I have looked in the porsche diagnostics, but cant find this code. I can find the 1549, but this is for the parking sensors and this comes up in the Bosch Digital Motor Electronics 7.1.1 module. P1549:Vehicle electrical system voltage via main relay - No signal/communication, test conditions are not-completed, fault is not currently active and is not causing a DTC light
  9. Will this also allow UK and European owners to make a claim?
  10. not replaced the battery, the codes are cleared. I will check again at the weekend
  11. Hi, Just ran a test on my 2003 TT and came up with the following (amongst others) 1330:Rear convenience system control module - No signal/communication, test conditions are not-completed, fault is not currently active and is not causing a DTC light All the systems from the unit seem to be working OK. I looked into the POSES and it says for the 1330 error to replace the unit, strange if everything is working. Has anyone else had this issue? The other code is: 1517:Trailer hitch control module (AHK) - Upper limit value exceeded, test conditions are not-completed, fault is currently active and is not causing a DTC light. This I think is also part of the Rear convenience system, but again the trailer hitch moves in / out when the switch is operated. Is this adavnce warning of an iminant failure? Thanks in adavnce.
  12. Thanks I will look into this
  13. Agreed about ebay, best to actually go and see the parts before buying. BTW: I have the latest PET and prices, was just seeing if I could get cheaper elsewhere, but probably not actually worth the heartache. Thanks for all the help.
  14. So how does one ensure that the information for the part numbers from PET match the numbers on fleabay? Is anywhere on the headlights that the correct part numbers can be found? I want to be sure that the unit is the latest.
