I only wanted a remap
- Jul 7, 2015
My cupra had also the diesel sound. After I flushed the engine and renew the cam chain including all parts also the follower the ticking dieseling stopt. I had no oil consumption before of after. Only very much sludge.It sounded worse that my stage 1 diesel Fr+ with a clogged dpf did.
I've been taking it easy so far, but have tickled the brakes a couple of times and nearly gone through the windscreen. So they are definitely gripping the road better. I had 3mm left on the front... swapped over the rears with 7mm, so I've still got that floaty steering feeling.No way, I got my first ever pair of PS4S yesterday too The grip is unbelievable
Next thing on my list is to get a sump clean / oil pickup pipe. They checked my chain stretch using vcds (didn't know this was possible). But the garage reckon it's currently sitting at -3 (-1 would be great, -5 Seat reckon change it, garage said they usually wait till about -7).My cupra had also the diesel sound.

Mines got all kind of noises. I've had them all listened to and apparently all normal. I get increased engine noise cause of having the cover removed. A bit more rattle cause of the uprated engine mounts. The HPFP makes the injectors noisier at idle. The flywheel rattles because of the uprated clutch. I've also got a new rattle at idle now due to the APR pendulum mount.This was after the maintenance
I'll have a look when I go out to pretend to smoke in a bit. I'm hoping it's nothing important. It's def not off something "big", I panicked and thought it might be off the vertical APR pendulum mount. The bonnet struts have that type of nut, but they are both still there.Looks like a but that would hold the door check strap on, or something like that
Oooo yeah, I like that... "no-ones leaving till the box is empty".We doing a side by side comparison at the meet haha bring your box!
Looks the same, but their both still attached.That's the bold that hold the wiper arm I think.
I really need to get the car jacked up and have a tug and see if anythings loose. I'll check the drop links while I'm under, cheers. What does confuse me, it looks almost new. Most of my bolts are more rust than metal under there. Similar to my other theory that my neighbour hates me for waking them with the pressure washer on a Sunday. So they've bought a bag of "assorted" nuts n bolts from b&q and every couple of weeks throw another one under my car.Looks like a anti roll bar drop link bolt
Or has it been dropped when in at the garage and not been found so left and it’s worked it’s way out ??
I figured it out, it’s the single most important bolt on the whole car... without you are doomed.... doomed...It's time to play "whats under Legojon's car today". Today we have a mystery nut, looks like it's made of brass. Found under the passenger side front of the car. As you can see, special features include a surface designed to prevent it from coming undone. Which works spectacularly well. It looks pretty new... but I can't see any nut like it anywhere else.
