  1. Orange/EE SmsMT NO's

    100200590.....that's the number. Has caused a lot of pain to my self lately x sorry guys for lack of posting x
  2. Won't start after timing belt change

    Rubbish!!! There would have been a recall or QE on said issue. Either pulley was shot completely or user error......if it ran tidy to start with then there's only one port of call.......tidy
  3. Orange/EE SmsMT NO's

    100200950 numbers!!!! Hello to all that know me sorry about my technical VW absence. I'm calling on a few return favours from tech geeks here.....I used to be an Orange customer since 1997! I'm struggling with a few things regarding EE and their itemisation etc!!!!! Really frustrating as I've spent over 3 hours trying to get to the bottom of what a SMSMT message is! Also how Google messaging from mobile to email works and vice versa as I'm having a few issues indoors. Much love from fried head and broken Tidydubs
  4. 14 things to do with a BMW 650 Gran Coupé (3G warning)

    The M6 Gran Coupe looks pimp!!!!!!
  5. VW Recalling 384,000 Cars Faulty DSG Transmissions

    Been away for a whilei know people............................ but I know all things VAG/DSG related and have rebuilt a fair few and know the ins and outs of the little buggers. THEY ARE a good box if not abused and yes they have had a few teething problems. If a decent VW technician picks up on the minor issues to start with and diagnoses correctly in the first place all will be cool.
  6. A6 v6 tdi 3.0 only blows cold air!!!!!!

    Hello there i have all the info but not with me at the moment but the pump in the plenum chamber with all the coolant pipes to and from it needs to be changed.....pretty much as I have described above.....vacuum filling the cooling system is the best way to complete the job without getting air locks, as i tried without it first and ended up with only the one side working in the cockpit once hot................
  7. 2013 Golf or pre-reg car?

    Seriously Mook.......get a grip man the BMW mini is NOT a proper MINI and are in fact less reliable and less hands on than the old ones.At least you could fix most stuff on the old trusty rusties yourself and they handled a lot better too. Golf GTD is ok if its got some spec........seriously though Golf 7 is a beaut.......ive been privvy to alot of playing and digging on a fair few the last couple of months..........he he he Golf 7 for sure forget Golf 6 and its dodgy EGR!!!!
  8. AUDI TT 2.0TSFI knocking noise

    Hi although these do have a wee DMF......this sounds like its not the case at all. It sounds like the Mechatronics or dual clutch is playing up. More likely a mechatronics but some prematur wear may also have occurred on the dual multi plate wet clutch!!!! Ive replaced both mechatronics and clutches.......mechatronics do suffer from software issues up to a certain build. Clutches are a wear/tear replacement item but can often give jip due to a shafted mechatronics,but more often than not just judder or have really harsh up and downshift..........hope this sheds some light....contact me for more info.......Tidy
  9. VAG COM AND THE NEW mk 7 GOLF AND A3.........

    does that mean extra money to be shelled out?????? nice one..........
  10. D2 S8 cold

    I do believe like the A6 they have a valve with 2 electrical connectors in the plenum chamber circa £250???.....has the water running through it.I did one recently on which i posted a thread on here about Fbruary i think?? I trust you have no HOT air flowing through your vents? Once replaced you will have to vacuum fill the cooling system to which its turned to G13 now......should only be used with distilled water by all accounts. Hope this helps???Tidy
  11. Your Car/Motoring plans for 2013 ?

    Diolch yn fawr....
  12. Boot lock not working in cold weather

    There is a possibility its the gas struts on the boot not allowing the closure due to the extreme temperatures of cold....possibly a software update for that unit as i dare say it has a load sensing in the unit.....try your reatiler or good Indy
  13. Your Car/Motoring plans for 2013 ?

    Noswaith dda pawb.....Good evening everyone (first part is Welsh) as im learning!!!!Apologies ive been away for a long while it seems........ Road trip or four to the French alps again for a couple of weeks Cornwall hopefully too and Pembrokeshire.........possibly do the A470 up to North Wales again just for the crack like......
  14. VAG COM AND THE NEW mk 7 GOLF AND A3.........

    hmmmmm possibly......i just wondered if any one is playing with a new A3 as they are out now and the 7 is out January 13........i have had a good poke around an SE Golf 7 loads of spec VW press car none the less.......looks good too longer wheeel base as its variable as is the width due to the new MQB platform....which i knew about in 2010!!!
  15. Apologies first and foremost........not been here for a while alot has been going on. Getting paid for my diagnostic time online, very few and far between but its been good all the same and moved yet again!!!! Due to the complexity of the new Golf 7 and its counterpart the A3, is VAG COM going to be able to communicate with either of these? Thing is ODIS is the new software for these models (bloody pain in the recctal cavity) as its got some teething problems at the mo. Can anyone shed any light on this subject for example ROSS TECH? Any info will be greatly appreciated.......Tidy.
