It failed on nearly every single front arm... Amazing since it drove fairly nice.
So a quick rundown of pictures for the mot.
I will say all the bolts came out no problem which for a b5 is fairly amazing
So on the bench for the top one
And new one.
Both sides were done. But it was getting later and darker so just cracked on
So moted driving round and the power steering pump front seal goes. I thought itll be alright. Itll last...
Well it didnt so new pump to go in.
Only got a picture of the pulley as i found an intresting thing about by intercooler pipe.
And the interesting pipe....
So i decided that the bigger intercooler should go on and also i had to weld that hole up. Which i did. Its not pretty but itll do til a get a new pipe for the a4.
So the intercooler (needs centering but as i say pipework needs sorting out again)
Popped the cooler line on the power steering today.
Ordered a new one but while i wait used a pit of fuel hose so its usable.
Turns out that the pipe was touching the floor so the new one will be bent into shape to sit in front of the intercooler.
After that i was looking at the a4 front and i didnt quite like the black that was flacking with the chrome showing through. Eventually a rs4 grille will go on but until then i had a little carbon wrap left so... Obvously wrapped it
So finally the passat got some lemski time. The thermostat was stuck parcially open and the misses was starting to complain that i had the stat but hadnt fitted it. So in between the golf and the a4 a quickly put that in. No picture because its such a quick job i never got the camera out.
It does need glow plugs so thats next.
Oh almost forgot while im driving the a4 it has some bucket seats in it because the old seats where shot. The misses hates them i dont. So there probally ending up in the golf when i find replacements for the a4.
Until next time chow!!
