Re: My GTX

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...

Re: My GTX

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 ...

Brake fluid loss

It appears that the GTX is loosing brake fluid. Now I've been under the thing and checked all the calipers and brake lines, they are all dry and in good condition. I've also had the lower footwell trim out and the clutch master cylinder is dry. Is there any chance the slave cylinder could be leaking...

Re: Which one to buy

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 :shock: then uploading the new file. I made a couple of backups of the original just in case things don't go to plan.

Re: 2.0. v 2.2 Hdi engines.

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...

Re: My GTX

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...
