Yeah they are much brighter. Would highly recommend it :D
Does that recommendation come with an actual type of LED bulb used? Thanks

Happy Star Wars day everyone.
Filled my Caddy with garden waste yet again and took it to the tip.
Seems to be the norm these days.
When done I’m going to have to touch up my plastic trims and repaint my headlining light board :(

Yeh if it’s not garden waste going it’s wood, concrete blocks and tools coming.
Sunday is garden day, dispose of on Tuesdays, rest of the week is house renovation. I’ll be glad when family are allowed to visit to hopefully help :lol:

Last weekend I did the Touran dashboard conversion . Nice and easy upgrade and wasn’t hard to swap. Also swapped out the old vents and upgraded to the MK2 Touran chrome surround units. If anyone does the same you will also need the top storage compartment also from the MK2 as the Mk1 doesnt fit in the Mk2 housing. Image

So, the van developed a coolant leak last Friday afternoon, turns out it was the bottom radiator hose intermittently coming into contact with the power steering pump and it’s worn a tidy hole in the hose!
I thought I’d cured this issue when I bought the correct hose ( 1.9, bls with air con and hydraulic PS).

So looking at the hose coupling I thought that perhaps I could gently prise it apart and turn the outlet pipe, this i did to see if it would give more clearance around the pulley.
Image

Seems it does Image result!

Roll on 6 days, new replacement hose arrives, same part number, same supplier, same price even!

And... when compared to the old one with the now rotated coupling they have the same outlet angle, perhaps the first hose was made on a chilled out Friday afternoon before a party weekend?
Image

Van back up and running with about 30mm of clearance between hose and pulley, result!

I fitted Heko wind deflectors to my Caddy Mk4 Life. I got them online from Mick's Garage in Ireland and they arrived in about 3 days, well packaged. Their part number is 5677571 "Front Heko Wind Deflectors For Volkswagen CADDY IV Estate 2015 Onwards 1" £45.59 incl p&p.
They are a good fit and look great. There is some wind noise above 50mph, but it's not too loud.

Finally plucked up the courage to clear the three fault codes lying dormant from 2015 with my recently acquired Hex-V2 10-VIN, no drama, it's new again!
