    Fitted my dog bone mount. Definitely smoother on and off the clutch, gear changes are less "snappy" at speed and on an awkward hill start that I normally have TCS flashing the wheels didn't skip once!

    Excuse the poor quality, Photobucket has suddenly butchered the file size of my mobile uploads... :confused:

    Stripped down my original 02M gearbox (code ERR) to investigate the failure mechanism of the 3rd/4th selector fork.

    Will it be the rivet that has failed, will it be the shift fork itself.......



    It was the shift fork :rolleyes:

    Can you see the slight issue :cartman:

    That was an interesting couple of hours stripping it all down, just need a new fork now and it's good to go :D

    I changed my ignition coils and spark plugs by myself!! Yes nothing major but for a 25 year old woman who's never fixed anything on an engine I'm proud haha

    I BlackSmoke remapped my TDI SE 110 to 137Bhp. Time will tell on economy but performance improved across the range and feels a lot smoother to boot! My only regret is not doing it sooner!

    Next up - Mufflerectomy I reckon!
