    Kingy? Not one of the hairy bikers? :D


    What engine's in your golf? There's a sticker in the boot under the carpet and also in the front of the service manual, it should have a code like ALH/AGR/ASV/ABF etc

    Thanks, to be honest I thought it was that one, although when going through a various sites it says the PD did not start until 2004, I presume this was not the European model.
    One thing that is intriguing me ( and I hope you can help ) is that near the top of the engine, in the centre near the bulkhead, is a part with about 4 roughly 10mm hoses coming out of it, one of them is connected to nothing, is this correct is it a breather pipe or has it come of something. I accept it's difficult to diagnose, is it a diverter or something like that ??

    Well done seatman and thanks,:bowdown re the pipe that was not connected to anything, it had come of the air filter box.
    Timing belt is done, power steering fluid done, fuel filter changed, engine oil and filter changed.
    My next job is the handbrake, in short its ****e!!
