  1. A friend of mine with a UK spec 2001 TT has an intermittent problem with his rear spoiler. It sometimes refuses to raise at the correct speed. Its not all the time, just happens on & off....any ideas ? It works when raised with the button on the dash ok J
  2. Its the standard Turbo front spoiler, £140 (UK) with PCGB discount, ordered from a local OPC. They fitted it for free, because they forgot to order it in when I took my car there for fitting. They managed to get one in, but all took longer than expected so I had a bit of a winge & they agreed free fitting......from the sounds of it its a quick job anyway that they probably charge an hours labour for !
  3. Slightly strange one this, but when I change down from 3rd to 2nd, the car feels a little "rough". Not when changing from 4th to 3rd or 5th to 4th etc, just 3rd to 2nd. Its kinda hard to describe other than it feels rough & lumpy as the clutch comes up & engages 2nd gear. In all other ways the car feels fine. Any suggestions ? Its an 02 996 with 19k miles. R.
  4. Thanks Loren I am ordering the spoiler from an OPC, do you know if the clips come with it or will I need to order them separately ?
  5. Hi All My front lower plastic lip spoiler (02 996TT) is knackered & needs replacing. Is this an easy DIY job if I order the spoiler ? Looking underneath it looks like its easy - held on with a few clips/nuts etc, but anyone have first hand experience of changing one ? Cheers Ro.
  6. I had a hunting problem and a number of things were said to me by an OPC & specialist : 1) Maf (mentioned) 2) Faulty o2 sensors 3) A split hose (mentioned) 4) Check the oil filler cap (?) apparantly if its loose or the rubber seal has perished or cracked on the inside of the cap, then this can cause hunting. Ro.
  7. Not sure about others, but I found it made just a little difference to the sound higher up the rev range. I don't think it harms the car having it in & in the 6 montsh I had it in I never had any problems - car felt fine. The reason I removed it was that while it didn't seem to harm the car, because of the minimal sound difference I thought I would remove it just in case. Had the sound been transformed, it would have stayed in. Ro.
  8. oops - just noticed that you are not in the UK - maybe better off calling them direct & getting one sent to you after all. Ro.
  9. Hiya I have a spare cap if you want. I had it in my C2 & it made a bit of a difference in terms of induction noise higher up the rev range, but not a huge amount. Its so easy to put in / take out that you can do it & if you decide its no different just whip it out again. Drop me your address & I will drop it in the post to you (if I can find it !) Ro.
  10. OK Thanks - there goes my plan of just swapping bumpers over & being done with it :(
  11. All Quickie - will a GT2 front bumper go straight onto a 996 TT ? Quite like the aggresive look of the GT2 so toying with the idea.... Ro.
  12. MAF sensor &/or O2 sensors in the exhausts ? Both were suggested when my 1998 C2 had idle problems. In my case a new MAF cured everything. Ro.
