Why have you posted in a different group on Tapatalk? Why not use our official Tapatalk group?

1.6tdi on the way out!


Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkImage
1.6 Tdi out….. hopefully the end of injector replacements but I’m sure there will be other surprises in store ImageImage
A3 3.2 DSG collected! Unfortunately I couldn’t have the whole car but it comes with engine wiring harness so not to bad I’ve got plenty of other vag parts that should make up for some of missing parts I need. Image
Engine with obligatory seat belt lifting device. Image
Thought I would have a play at the brakes today, Got some old brembo 8z callipers off of a Q7 I’ve had for breaking. They look rough but all pistons are smooth and free, time for a bit of elbow grease. Image
Getting there ImageImageImage
Started cleaning up the gearbox ready for priming and paint. I’ve got a better condition mechatronics cover somewhere at the garage, this one’s looking pretty rusty ppImagethis one’s better, still gave it a freshen up. ImageImage
Routing the new correct fuel lines in Image
And finally the back ordered fuel tank has arrived ImageImage
Time to start cleaning up the engine and replace water pump, idlers tensioners seals, gaskets, plastic housings and anything else that looks worn or tired. I know where the engine come from and the chains were done about a year ago so I’m going to leave them alone. Image
Engine and gearbox back together Image
Took some bits home to clean up check over prep and paint. The wife was not impressed for some reasonImageImage
Cleaned and prepared with adhesion promoter Image
Out with the Audi badge in with the new £70 Vw badge Image does finish it off quite nicely though! Image
Just a test fit of the manifold to see how it looks Image
Almost built up ready to go in, pushed the van out and gave it a good clean up underneath and engine bay. Image
Aluminium subframe ready just need to bolt the new arms and bushes on Image
She in. Not plumbed up just in the mounts so a long way off yet but still good progress for the limited free time I have at the minute ImageImage
Exhaust down pipes on. Still need to do the rest of the exhaust. Image
Aluminium Subframe, with genuine S3 bushes and aluminium arms in. But not fully bolted up yet. Awaiting new stretch boots
Image
and finally made a start de-pinning the donor car loom.ImageImage
Nothing too exciting this week. DSG selector in but yet to do the wiring. The donor car wiring loom was from a manual car so I need to pull the DSG loom out of another diesel car going for scrap and repin accordingly should be fun ImageImage
Key removal lock solenoid installed Image
Steering control module HIGH installed for paddles and multifunction steering wheel Image
Clutch pedal removed and genuine bung holio cover thing in for the gaping hole left behind, Eos pedal with touran carrier installed with brake pedal switch bracket I assume Il have to run a brake pedal switch with the ecu im using? Anyone know if I can get around this as the caddy didn’t use a mechanical pedal switch?!

Wow, I absolutely love reading these builds. Like many other owners on here, your attention to detail is superb buddy.
Enjoy the process of taking something that looks dead to giving it a new lease of life.
Top work

Thanks for the encouragement guys, ha ha, I started cleaning one bit and was like “well now the rest looks worse” so it sort of escalated from there :lol:

The work you have put into this project so far is awesome. Especially with the cleaning and and tidying up of all the parts you are using. Keep up the good work. Nice to see another R32 caddy being built 👌
