As for piping and tubing, definitely worth a good inspection of all hoses especially those under the inlet manifol...

Re: BB's TT

Just a couple of jobs done over the last few weeks, new rear hatch struts fitted and last Friday the Cookbots gear slop bush installed. Some say it’s a 30 minute job to install the gear slop bush but it took me the best part of two hours to remove the OEM bush and then around 45 minutes to install t...

Re: BB's TT

In addition cleaned up the headlight levelling senso...

Several days were spent soaking the track rod end lock nuts with penetrating fluid and after four days I finally managed to loosen the drivers side lock nut and much to my relief the track rod end itself was free to unwind from the tie rod.

Re: BB's TT

Two weeks ago I started the process of reinstalling my track control arms which I’d previously removed to clean up and have the Cookbots fitted, followed by painting with some Eastwoods extreme chassis satin black. At the same time I was determined to replace the steering track rod ends as a four wh...
