    Il get a look on Saturday in daylight. I must had the second one in wrong. The first went in great no problems
    Need to read the manual too see if the lights are meant to be vertical or horizontal
    Order a canbus corrector thing too see if that gets rid of my warning

    got the bulbs in today
    the problem with the one bulbs that wouldn't go to the place meant too was the wee tags on the bulb itself
    so a bit of electrical tape and that sorted it

    not sure if i like them mind, the light if very close to the car, does it go far im used to philips racing vision and they seem to through the light more up the road
    and with the need of the ebay 2X H7 LED Load Resistors 50W 6 Ohm Stop Car Light Flicker Cancel Error Message and thats just bulks everything up, cant put the rear cap on so its a mess with cable ties

    but they are in and working, no error and not blinding anyone

    Shampoo'd the rear carpets and mats after carrying two dozen eggs on the back seat and having to break hard for a bus that hesitated at a roundabout

    Changed my recirc valve to be surprised to find my car had an 8 year old Revision D. Put a revision G on instead as its the better of the two types.

    Im sure its not meant to but the old recirc came apart when lifting it out.

    I changed it in the staff carpark at work so not been able to drive it yet. I did start the engine and checked there were no errors and it would give boost using the Torque app on my phone.

    I thought it was some kind of new cleaning idea I'd not heard of. Just smash 6 eggs on each mat... oooooooo.

    Yeah, mine fell to pieces as well. Which was ace as I almost lost it down the pipe when it did!

    Changed the windscreen/rear screen screenwash pump by removing the drivers side fog and changing the pumps over and cost £41.72 total so nice cheap fix for a VW pump to go in. Only took about 10 mins max to do. :smoke:

    £42?? That's crazy money for a part like that. Respected brands like Febi Bilstein start at around £13.

    Glad you've got it fixed and working though.

    Could it be condensation caused by the cold weather?

    Had it checked by a garage this morning and its passed the check on the head gasket so no £1500 bill looming :happy:

    Time to continue the last few bits to change tomorrow including the fuel pump cam follower.
