  • I found this guys, it seems the manual states my car has been working at normal temperatures. Why would people on here give different advice?

And is your fan working correctly on slow and fast speeds? There is a good guide on testing your cooling fan and after run pump here somewhere.
      Pm sent!! Thank you

      • Rear view mirror guys!! I have found something that may be helpful for the many!
        Since its becoming harder to find this part, I have noticed that the rear view mirror is very similar, if not identical to my mk4 golf's mirror, bar the colour change and I think the golf's is easier to fit also. The mirror housing seems to have the same mechanism for attaching also.

        So If you wish to replace this, then have a look at 2003 golf mk4 or other vw vehicles for the mirror and you will see a possible substitute thats cheaper to buy and also improved. prices range from £10-30 online. Enjoy!

        • Chris, my NEW MFTS "runs" hot. I.e. it reads hotter than the "old" one. The way to check is to see when the fan first cuts in as this is set by the fan temp sensor and NOT the gauge temperature. If your No.1 Speed fan kicks in as normal, check what your temp gauge is reading when it does. On mine it went from something like 85 - 90 deg with the "old" MTFS to over 100- 105 deg with the "new" MFTS. The car may well be operating totally normally but your gauge just reading higher now... Have a try and see what you think?

          • Sounds like your new one is actually working properly now?

                  Lets set the record straight here - nothing to do with the TFSi coils or the harness I supplied, it was your Emerald ECU drawing more current than the factory circuit was specified for. You probably remember I spent hours of my time helping you diagnose this, funny it was never mentioned.

                    • They call me.... Junk yard Chris.....
                      (my currrnt window regulator is a bit squeaky, i stripped it and lubed it up, but still makes noise!)

                      Lets hope this recovered window regulator is quiet and operates well... plus some bits i canabalised off another Audi coupe they had sat waiting to be crushed!!! Omg!!

                      Also the otherday i fitted my mode switcher... the car is almost ready for a full paint touchup and valet by me!! Then can at least say most of the big jobs are done!! Yey

                      For anyone else interested theres an audi coupe at rushgreens scrap yard near hitchin, if you need bits off it.. its a 2.3 litre

                      • The squeak, in my experience, is more commonly the rollers in the corners of the window frame, or poor condition of the cable.

                          Thank you dude. In this case it's the motor for sure, I think where the wheel connects inside the mechanism - I cannot get to it at all so used spray grease and packed with grease. I cannot really strip it either. I have now tested the 2nd hand regulator and its quiet!! result!! ... now -- to fit it.

                          • Nice find that Coupe in the breakers. I personally would strip everything I could off it. It will all come in handy one day.

                            • I agree , there’s a lot of hard to find bits on it , including all the little clips and fixings
