    Can't remove shock/strut

    Thank you all for your advice I managed to get both top mounts changes today In the end I used a bottle jack on top of the upper ball joint. I found that tip from another post on here so I went out and bought myself a bottle jack and it worked perfectly Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Can't remove shock/strut

    I haven't compressed the spring but surely they wouldn't need to be compressed until they're off the car? I've separated the shock from the hub carrier before but on the opposite side without compressing the springs Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Its left a sort of ghost mark on the lacquer where the poo was I was thinking about getting some of those wipes but thought they might just be expensive rebranded wet wipes Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Bird poo

    Bit of a random question I know. The past couple of weeks I've had a couple birds poo on my car. Whenever I notice any I always wash it off straight away so it doesn't stain. This time it must've been on there for about 30 minutes and nothing I try will fully remove the stain mark. I tried...

    197: Speedo needle removal?

    I changed them to white. Maybe I should do a small write up of how to do it. Couldn't find any information online of how to change them on the mk3 so just had to go for it Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    197: Speedo needle removal?

    I did figure it out in the end [emoji16]. I got two spoons and put them under the needle and used them to evenly pull them off Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    197: Speedo needle removal?

    Thought I would put this in the general chat as it applies to the 197 and 200. I'm changing the LEDs in my speedo but before I go ripping off the speedo needles and messing something up has anyone removed them before? Can't find any information on removing them for the mk3. Normally they just...

    Acoustic valve

    You arent going to see any performance gains from doing it but you will get a bit of sound difference (not much) The blanking plug you sent would be for if you were to remove the valve completely from the engine bay. That large pipe that the blank goes over is on the side of the air box and...

    Acoustic valve

    The way the valve works is from pressure from the small pipe on top When the engine is running the valve is closed but when you reach a certain rev range the pressure will push the spring inside the valve and open it To make the valve open all the time just remove the small pipe that goes from...

    Acoustic valve

    I have disconnected the small pipe going in the top of the valve and I'm pretty sure that's all you need to remove. I believe the valve is normally open until the engine is started and then the pressure through the small pipe closes it and it wont open until the revs have built up enough to...

    Map sensor is loose

    Hope this helps a bit. It was a long time ago since I did it. The clear gel stuff was a little bit of silicone sealer I think just to make it a good fit Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    Do you know the cost to get it repaired? Has anyone had the rust patch and got it fixed? I'm thinking a body shop could probably spray the lip where the water sits rather than spraying the whole boot Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    I've got a little rust bubble on my boot as well. Thought I was the only one Didnt think the corrosion warranty covered something like that. I guess my warranty would be out as well seeing as it's a 56 plate Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
