  4. Clutch issues

  5. Clutch issues

    Thanks for the advice, clutch pedal is clear of anything, did take the cover off the piston and got it in 5th and looked at it and there is rust all round it, gave it a bit of a clean and put back together and tested but still the same sticking to the floor, if it's a nice day tomorrow going to try a full blead like you say, have a clutch slave on order now just hope it works one way or another as I really want it on the road
  6. Clutch issues

    Hi guys and gals have a problem with my clutch, don't know if it's the clutch slave if it needs pressure bled or the pressure plate. my car is a mk2 vr conversion when the car is sat with engine off or on the clutch pedal sticks to the floor and locks the gear stick in position I.e. 1st gear have to turn the car off pull the pedals up with my toes and then back in nutal then engine back on, anyone have any ideas have bled it a few times still the same and now I'm looking at replacing the clutch slave as someone said it could be that but don't want to pay out for that if it isn't that and is the same with the new part

  8. Changes to your v5c

    Hi guys and gals I recently done this and thought I'd pass it on as there is a lot of conflicting information out there ( sorry for the length but want it to be in depth ) i bought a mk2 shell from a friend then it was built and converted from a 1.3 to obviously a vr6 the 2.8, I insured the car as a 2.8 and after reading all over the net that I could tax the car as a 1.3 and drive it as long as it was insured as a 2.8 I thought great, but after the time and money invested in the car I decided to do research into this, and was proved not the case. i done further reading and read that I could take the v5 to the post office and they can change it on the system, yes they can change it from the 1.3 to disabled tax but as it passes through into a new tax band only dvla can do it. i updated the v5c had to get a v70 form ( YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD THIS AND PRINT IT OFF ) then fill it out, I didn't fill in the milage as its not required by law on this form and I didn't fill in the old revenue weight or the new revenue weight as I didn't know, you also have to include the mot certificate and I got a engineers report not from AA or RAC but a local place that does them and you also have to include a cheque for the outstanding amount of that that would be due this is the more complicated bit. the tax you paid i.e. My one the 1.3 so it's the new tax price minus the old tax then you decide that by 12 to get your monthly price then you have to times that by how long is left on you current tax i.e. 3 month they also say about getting a receipt from the garage that done the conversion but in my case it was a drive way conversion so I didn't include a receipt, you then send this all off to the dvla ( I recommend recorded mail ) and I was on the phone often to check on the progress you can also go on google and search car tax check and put your reg and make of car in and in my case at the cc section it said 12something cc so that made it 1.3l and if you keep checking you will see the change once it's been done to 27something cc like I say sorry for the length but I hope it helped.

  11. Help With This?

    Hey guys I have a problem with my auxiliary water pump, it used to turn on when the ignition was turned on but recently it isn't doing that and after driving the car ( temperatures in normal range ) it still didn't come on? Any advice on what could be going on? This is my first vr
  12. looking for somebadvice

    Thanks I hope so too the car was built from a shell so lots of time money and of course when working with old cars blood too
  13. looking for somebadvice

    Thanks for your help, I was told by dvla that they need proof of purchase of the engine and the engine code and vin of the car, and a inspection report, but on direct gov it states that I only have to provide written proof if I have decreased the engine size or fuel type and well the vr I obviously more power and I havnt changed the fuel type, so long story short some places and people say one thing then other places and people say something different
  14. looking for somebadvice

    Lol, it insured as a 2.8 through Adrian flux, I'm wanting to try and get it done as where I am there is a lot of modified cars and the police like to stop people do their normal checks and then look under the bonnet, they done that to me in the other golf I had a 1.3 carburettor and was called a winter check yet the went for the engine bay. So in theory I go past a or get pulled by a police car and its still 1.3 on the v5 and they go under the bonnet in screwed no hiding the vr
  15. looking for somebadvice

    Recently got my mk2 golf with the vr6 in it, tried to change the tax at the post office but couldn't, so had to tax it as a 1.3 ( what it used to be before I got it ) I'm looking to get the correct tax on it dvla has stated that they require a engineers report for the car, is there anything else I need to do, want the car fully legal?
