    Golf 7R Photos - Part 2

    Rare opportunity to drive the R on log duty. Not washed since before VAG Tuner Live. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exhaust flaps

    Ps. You can run through this on the App without being connected to the dongle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exhaust flaps

    If you open up the OBDELEVEN App click on your garage / Golf R / control unit / Engine / Long Coding. Tap the right arrow a few times and you’ll come across exhaust flaps. Tap the check box. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exhaust flaps

    Oh. Ok. The only other thought. Have you tried the long coding on OBDELEVEN? Or completed a scan to see if that brings anything up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Exhaust flaps

    Sounds like the motors for the valves have given up or the mechanisms have sooted up and seized. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Rusty discs

    The culprits here are the rear disc brake pads. Swap out the TRW OEM pads for some upgraded aftermarket pads the problem will be no more. I was getting a marbling effect on my rear discs, upgraded the pads and the discs cleaned up within 25 miles of normal driving, back to how they should be. I suspect that the OEM pads are quite porous and collect dust and debris, which causes the pad to be less effective and causes scoring of the rear discs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The intercooler should catch any debris from the turbo, so that may need checking and clearing as necessary. If you send your turbo to Dan at Littco, he’ll do all the necessary and return a better than new unit. Mine was a little under £600 using a damaged turbo and upgrading to his IS38X specification.

    Intercooler Piping Replacement

    Forge Motorsport, APR & Racingline do a silicone sets. I changed mine because the OEM jubilee clips that are used have claws to prevent the clamp from twisting when being tightened at the factory. These claws penetrate through the wall of the hose, that’s why I changed the hoses and the jubilee clips. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    12v battery low warning

    The one to possibly upgrade to is the Bosch S5 OA8. It’s a direct replacement that comes with a 5 year warranty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Front Bumper Removal

    The worse bit is trying to unclip the bumper from underneath the headlight units. 3 clips be side iirc. The rest of it is fairly easy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    R Estate

    There’s a definite difference on the mk7.0 and having just looked on the latest brochure it gives the same turning circle across all variants. So maybe the 7.5 has had a slight tweak. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
