  1. Sorry just saw your post now. mine failed to work some weeks ago. My wife went to the next Volkswagen shop and they replaced it with a Touareg part. Works fine - cost half.
  2. I believe you will take away the intake manifold to get good access to your water pump. When this part is out of the way you will see the tubes.
  3. Just an idea. Maybe you try to get a flush of the trans . A simple oil change doesnt clean out all the very little metal flakes which are swimming around there
  4. Thanks god. Be happy that what seemed to be a big big problem was in the end a small plastic part
  5. Take out the mirror and check if something is in the way . But it sound more like the motor.
  6. @Lewis thank you Lewis. my mechanic did it for 50 EUR i didn’t have time
  7. This sounds nice. I like snow so much. Here is nothing. No winter and Xmas feeling. Drive careful
  8. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY ! Thank you very much for your support and help during all this year. Without you I would be lost. Thank you! Thomas
  9. @Mark06111 & @Lewis thank you very much guys. Have found the harness connection behind the air pump. Should be easy to access. It needs a lift I guess to reach the sensor in the bell housing. HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR EVERYBODY!!!
  10. Hi Mark since 2 weeks I experience the same issue. Cranking several times before firing. Never had it before. Strange running car almost only when it was filled up. I got a code. P0335. Crankshaft Sensor. I could delete the code but the problem cAme back after some days. First i was thinking it is related to my faulty AGR Ventil. But I am shure it’s the sensor from crankshaft to dme. Bought the Bosch part. could you do the repair by yourself? What read at Pelican it’s hard to connect in the engine bay close to firewall. May i ask how you did it? Thank you
  11. Hi to Canada! Nice to hear that you solved this oil smell problem and the car is running good. Major task ! With this news you push me to overlook my valve and all connections again :-)
  12. Thank you Lewis. The Hitachi is fitting without correction of the water cooling lines?
  13. @Lewis how long did it take for you to replace? i remember you was very disappointed
  14. ALTERNATOR QUESTION. Sorry has nothing to do with the title of this thread but I didn’t want to open new one. i had my alternator replaced 2 years ago. Overhauled part. Is working flawless but makes noises from the very first day. The mechanic maybe should hear it before replacement but he didn’t. Now he is in and because it’s a pita to replace we didn’t change. Just the noise is a bit annoying. Is there a chance to replace the bearing without taking the alternator out of the car? Thank you
