I spent a few hours on my GTI this afternoon..

Started off with the wheels, used "Williams" wheel cleaner ( just had it in the shed).

I used Farecla Body Prep shampoo to get of all the previous wax off.

Then I tried Autoglym Magma iron remover. It seemed to work, noticed a few black marks here and there, and it smelt nice..

I washed again with the Body Prep shampoo after that.

Then I used Poor Boys Natty Red Wax, which smelt even better, and was lovely to use.

Finally, dressed tyres with Meguires Endurance tyre gel, oh and Autoglym Glass Polish on the windows :)


Looking back, I've learned not to skip on the Tar Remover stage, and I've decided that I want to buy a Blower :)

Sorry the pics arn't very good, I run out of sun..

You can get out of a PCP at any time simply by requesting a settlement figure and paying it.

Golf mk4 / Boot lock issues
« Last post by sharki786 on 19 June 2018, 22:42 »
Hi lads. Been some time AGAIN.

Iv been having issues with the boot lock. If i unlock the boot via the fob and i open it then alarm dont recongise the boot being open. I changed the boot lock which was faulty and had corrosion all over it (common rear wiper motor) anyway the small 3 pin plug was corroded, so i made 1 up at work. Now i have temp fitted it and the boot compartment light works fine but the alarm dont chirp when i lock the car only chirps twice when i unlock it. If i take the 3 pin plug off from the lock it chirps when i lock it and chirps twice when unlocked.

Iv seen a 2 pin plug and that has suppose to have a micro swich connected to it like below




This is were the 2 pin plug is:



Do any of you guys have this mounted on ur boot anywere or is it just there blank? If you do then were is the microswitch mounted to?
The boot lock is new and the wires are insulated for temp till i solder them.

Cosmetic & bodywork matters / Re: Wheel Bolt Length

ST, KW, H+R, Tyre Rack etc.

This info is around in a good few places. Here are some examples with some info -

It certainly is odd that V.W. don't align with this 7.5 minimum turns I agree. My wheels haven't come off either but I'd prefer to be safe and not use a wheel coming off to figure out that my wheel bolts are too short. I'd prefer to figure out the correct length needed to be sure that they are long enough that my wheels definitely will not come off.

Get it mapped bro interested in what this makes, also bro we need to make your pics work!

Qaz brooooo. the pics are working fine for me.
Need to do cam belt & WP then fit the vr6 sachs clutch thats waiting then i can fit the fmic and then fit the saab red top injectors.

Did a small update. Alarm keep locking the doors when i open the boot (basicly its not recognising the boot open) got a repair plug and wires from work and built it up. Now the boot compartment light works but the alarm dont chirp. Iv seen another 2 pin plug and that has suppose to have a micro swich connected to it like below




This is were the 2 pin plug is:



But were is the microswitch mounted?
The boot lock is new and the wires are insulated for temp till i solder them.
Now if i diconnect the 3 pin plug from the boot lock the alarn will chirp when i press the close button. But if i connect it i get no chirp only when i unlock it.
