IPA on a long cotton bud or dowel with soft cloth taped on the end works a treat for me.Today I finally got fed up of my fogged-up front fog lamps. As had been suggested on some other older posts, the problem was on the inside of the lenses. I managed to remove and disconnect the units, remove the bulbs and make a reasonable fist of cleaning the lenses by putting a brush through the hole where the bulb goes. I’d be able to do a better job if I could somehow dismantle the units so I could get better access to the lenses. Is this possible? I found a post suggesting it was and it involved loosening the screw adjustment however I couldn’t find any way of removing that. Any hints? I think they’re good enough the way I’ve done it but someone might benefit from the knowledge.
Looks like water ingress to me, I suspect most look similar as they lack a proper seal in the worst possible position on a car.Got dirty
Yes, the car started making awful bonging noises driving in the supermarket car park last Friday.Is that a top Mount?
It changes the whole look of the engine bay ?Replaced my header tank - the old one was shot to bits and leaking around the centre. Some of it just crumbled off as we took it off.
It does and she seems to be running better too ?It changes the whole look of the engine bay ?
They need the air flow to cool them down ?Today I test drove 8 miles after front brake disks and rear drums and suspension replacement. No fires, no funny noises and the rear alloys were only mildly warm.
It’s always a bit nerve wracking!
Amazing how hot the front wheels get after a bit of city start stop driving. Even taking it really easy.

She made an excellent job of that. Instantly recognisable!Today I'm posting the Father's Day card my daughter made. The A2 has made a real impression with the family and it's not even up to scratch yet.
I also ordered the steel to lift up the back of the car so that I can remove the whole of the rear axle beam at some stage. If it works I will post some details.
Was great to meet the famous A2 Steve on sat. A top bloke, was great to finaly meet him. Fitted my leather seats in 30 min ! Loving my A2 tdi ❤…. Fitted a set of black leather seats for @Jayhaz71 after he had just picked up his new to him A2 from another member. Has to be a record I think for speed of having the first mod after purchase.
