So much for an easy job, anyway here goes. The problem. https://i.imgur.com/t29ojwJ.jpg The first problem arose when I tried to undo the flair nut at the top of the flexi hose, judging by the state of it I'd say it's the original and was completely solid and even using a flair nut spanner it rounded...
The only picture I got of doing the job as it started raining. https://i.imgur.com/VOTx56Z.jpg Also found that the drives side front flexi hose is almost completely perished where it passes through a plastic sleeve that holds it in place. It's so bad that when you press the brake pedal it doesn't ju...
Not done much to the GTX for a while now, still not fitted the wheel bearing :roll: regarding the brake fluid loss I believe I've tracked it down to the clutch slave cylinder. Gave Peugeot a call and they said the part is in high demand and it would probably be early September before they could get ...

I wouldn't use the generic maps either. When I did our passat it was very straightforward, then the 3 of the most nerve racking minutes of my life where it says erasing flash then uploading the new file. I made a couple of backups of the original just in case things don't go to plan.

I've been on this forum many years and it appears to me that HDi's vary quite a lot with MPG's, some easily manage high numbers whilst others struggle. I only wish I could offer a solid reason for it. I've noticed this on many forums. The passat forum I'm on is the same some cars will easily pull 5...
Well I think the 600 mile trip over the weekend has finished off the noisy rear wheel bearing, where it used to rumble under heavy cornering and at around 70 mph it now rumbling constantly. A quick search and phone around found that ECP would get me one for £ 77, and a few if the local motor factors...
