      A correctly working FCM sends ~5-6V to the compressor --with no load--, which is what you'll be testing with the compressor unplugged. The only way to really test it is to pierce the wires going to...

      The last two letters denote engine and gearbox ratios. You should not be mixing and matching. Seeing as one is from a 1.8T and one is from a TDI I would remove the incorrect TCM now before you do...

      To continue from my previous post:

      I have also read of people with similar issues whos problems were cured with a replacement TCM and that TCMs are a known issue.

      I have a 2002 PD130 with the 09A - 95k miles.

      When cold it shifts pretty well, slightly...

      With my manual seats at least you just need ignition off and you can disconnect the air bag plugs under the seats just fine. Turning the ignition one with seats removed will throw up an airbag fault...
    7. 09A slips on 2-3 shift. Shifts well otherwise. Where to start?

      Hi All,

      I have a 2002 PD130 estate with 100k miles on it and the 5 speed Tiptronic. Aside from a very slight lurch when you let off the brakes at a standstill, the gearbox operates pretty well....

      A couple of weekends ago I hardwired the cable running to the sub in my boot and installed a Speakon connector for easy removal/install.

      There was a slow day at work so I washed my TDI Sport, and then dug out my proper camera and did an evening photoshoot.

      Nice! I loved my TDI estate before it got nicked, sad times! Make sure you get an estate specific coilover kit, the rear shocks on the estates are different to the hatcbacks/saloons. Also you...

      They can be a bit of a pain to remove, but doable. There's three torx screws along the top of the opening once you open the lid, and two more which can be accessed from underneath just behind the...

      Is this an NA-spec thing? My 2002 UK-spec Passat wagon has 'normal' locking operation on all four doors and the boot. First press of the remote button and the driver's door unlocks. Press twice...

      Here's my mostly stock '02 TDI Sport. It'll get remapped at some point, but so far it's just window tints, a decent head unit plus a phone dock, better door speakers, EGR delete, tow bar, cruise...

      I took some injectors out of a 110bhp mk4 Golf (not sure what size they are) and I averaged something like 3-4 better MPG than before with a decent bump in power and torque. A remap is on the cards...
