I didn't realise our own Lord Sterling had owned this car. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2018082...


Lol. I've sent ya PM ;)

Wish I spent more time with my Passat when I had it. I quite liked it and am still looking at the Passat in a 'I fancy another one' way.

It's a good car but I can't get too enthusiastic about it, it's been reliable and it sips fuel but I find it a bit stodgy. Itching for something else already.

Wish I could buy it tbh. The BMW is costing me £50 a week in fuel even when I'm lightly touching the accelerator.

Justice! It's fixed.

I bought and fitted a cheap new MAF sensor a while ago and it turns out that was causing the "wiring fault", refitting the original MAF sensor cured it.

Do I have any comeback? They're a bit vague about returns.

They're not vague; they accept returns within 30 days.  Buyer pays postage.

Okay, I can't read. £15 of plastic scrap then.

One thing I found out on these motors, is genuine MAF only. They're expensive, but cheap ones usually cause more problems. 

I bought a replacement used pd130 airbox with MAF and pipes for mine for £30. This also means more airflow and loads* more power.

What's so hard about making a MAF that nobody in the aftermarket seems to be able to do it?
