  1. Thank you for the goodwill to share this info, i'm sure there are people here who can do something with it. This is ultimately the purpose of the forum.
  2. It might be interesting to post the part number, it can provide a solution for forum members with the same problem.
  3. The motor is a real boxer configuration, not a 180° V engine. As you indicate, the crankshaft has a separate crank for each connecting rod.
  4. For LHD cars: yes, passenger side towards the middle at the top.
  5. It may be that the original engine is changed for some reason, the Euro cars, if i remember correctly, had only just one sensor on one camshaft. In this case it would therefore be normal that you can't find any wiring. Give the VIN and engine #, someone on the forum can compare the numbers for matching.
  6. Interesting, thanks for the pics and explanation, i have no experience with it but it seems that this has to do with it, remains the question what is the cause of the faulty transistor? Good job, please keep us posted.
  7. Probably the venting of the front differential, the transfer case and rear diff. should also have one.
  8. Looks like the aeration of the gearbox which must prevent water penetrating when wading through water puddles, the rubber gut may be raised a little higher and is not closed as you say, air pressure can still escape from the gearbox.
  9. I think you need the following parts: 999 073 062 02 Tapping screw 4,8x19. Hope it helps.
  10. Check whether the alternator is equipped with a freewheel pulley, when it is jammed such a symptom can also occur.
  11. Your 99 electronic throttle body is most likely from a C4, these were already electronic in 99.
  12. Thormann, the top of the treath part of the M12 nut is oval, not round, as a safety Item.
  13. If there is no large leak, the amount of oil you have put into the engine will be too little. Pour 1/4 can at a time until the max. on the dipstick is reached. Probably the tick in the engine come through too little oil in the engine (valve train), a completely empty engine after disassembly/reassembly will have to contain more oil.
  14. As you yourself notice, the car must be locked, only in this condition most can bus connections are interrupted after a few minutes, only alarm remains active.
  15. Sway bars are mounted on the sub chassis, front and rear, on the one hand and on the struts on the other, they have no influence on the adjustments.
