    Did some preventative maintenance on my new 110k TFSi steed.

    Replaced my PCV and HPFP cam follower and my slightly lumpy idle is now sorted. HPFP was between stage 1&2 here http://r-techperformance.co.uk/2-0-tfsi-tuning/

    Just need to raise the coilovers a little to stop it catching going onto my drive then start saving for bits and re-map.

    In the old girl goes for a cam belt change\water pump and a service as well. Borrowed my parents V6 4Motion Golf and yikes the brakes are nowhere near as strong. Must remember not to press the brake pedal as hard as what the golf needs when I get mine back or I will be headbutting the dashboard.

    On Sunday I purchased my MK2 facelift Cupra and last night I changed the cam follower. Don't think much of the engine cover, mine doesn't seem to want to go back on 100%.

    Did you check the rubber bits that are in the air-box hadn't come off and stuck on the prongs of the engine as that happens every time for me when I take the air-box off I bet that's the problem.

    Daughter’s car now but f/n/side calliper has seized, so a quick change of calliper and pads, of for an mot, failed on a broken spring, f/o/side, didn’t see that but they can break anytime, letting the garage change that and the top mount(Just in case), dirty hands once a day is more than enough, still as long as it passes.

    Now passed, technician spent 3 hours odd on the job, messing about trying to get the top mount bolts out, me, last time I just zipped the heads off with a rotary cutter, no messing about, 1 hour an a bit, that’s why I supplied the top mount, still, only 1 1/2 hours labour to pay, at staff rate, happy bunny.

    I was running out of daylight, bit from what I could tell I think you may have solved my problem. I'll check later, thanks for the tip.

    Stuck the Leon lettering back on after painting gloss black. Think it looks pretty good, I'll leave the boot handle silver as it breaks it up well.[​IMG]

    Changed the outer left side rear light cluster as the one fitted had been chipped.

    Changed the aux input for one with a cover as the previous one had snapped off.

    Changed the cigarette socket for one with the cover flap as they look a lot neater than the ones without the flap.

    Last few days my blower has been working on and off, not ideal with the weather getting colder now so i took the fan out and found one of the brushes stuck in its housing.

    Quick squirt of WD40 there and on both bearings, been OK so far, touch wood

    Next job, fix interior light switch drivers side and fit new LED sidelights. Once it stops raining!!

    Removed and blanked off the rear wiper. Surprisingly easy mod. Next job, fix a leak in one of the front headlights.[​IMG]

    This is just me wanting to know and not being picky but why remove the rear wiper, don't you find it a must?
    My Leon is covered in spray within seconds and I rely on it.

    I'd considered that so tried for a few days without using it. Can still see through it and I use RainX on the rear window so keeps it clear for the most part.

    I never bothered changing the wiper on the rear so....never did a great job anyway.

    Gave it a wash and applied some Dodo juice purple haze wax, must say rather impressed.

    Picked these up today £80 for the set, road legal tyres (ditch finders) centre caps aswell. Prefer this style to the factory fr wheels I currently have.

    Was it easy/cheap to do? My signal is poor, looking to change the Arial first but looks ok.
