It obviously doesn’t want to work today, temp gauge shot up into the red, can’t see any signs of over heating so possibly a sensor. Don’t want to risk it, so waiting for VW Assist above Abbotsbury Image

Post a pic when they’re back in the van. They look great.

Cheers mate it’s at the dealer, temp gauge didn’t move after VW assist had been out. Got a standard high line with 150 DSG. The standard ride height and springs are vastly better then the factory lowering option. This van handles loads better then mine. So I think I’m going to raise my van back up on standard springs!

Carried on with lowering/poly bushing up sitting nice on the rear now note for future reference for people shackle bushes can be a nightmare to remove specially back box sideImageImage

What did you use to remove the bushings out the chassis? These are the last two on my van i need to replace, was thinking about burning them out as i haven't got any sockets big enough to push the old ones out into. Cheers

Did you ruin any of the underseal when burning them out? Might give it a go on Saturday

No I did mine with the gas axe so it melted when it caught fire I just blew it out so no damage done to the under seal

Piece of pipe 45mm inner diameter, threaded rod, some nuts and washers, that's what I've used to remove mineImage

Seen Ed China do something similar. But it works real well. I think Ed refers to it as back street engineering.

Think burning will be my way forward, don't know where I could get a piece of pipe for free from.
