Came home tonight to find a new rear calliper had arrived today, so looks like I will be busy this weekend



Hopefully this will cure my temperamental sticky handbrake issue, and also for the first time in a long time I didnít go on instagram today but to my surprise when checked this evening Iíd won a new detailing world do not wash sign so once again thank you

Canít remember if I mentioned this earlier but the rear drivers side calliper has started playing up again and stuck on, unfortunately the wife was driving at the time and I was in High Wycombe but luckily she was only around the corner.

So new calliper ordered and delivered and tonight was the time to fit it.



The disc got very warm whilst it was locked on, but thankfully it didnít get hot enough to warp it.



A quick brush over the bolts and clip with the dremel had then tidied up and I discovered the brake pipe clip has a little vw logo (itís all about the details )



All back together and working perfectly, the handbrake is also a lot quieter now too which is nice



I think I need to start tidying a few bits up soon on this, but I need to get the Corsa finished first as thatís now going to get sold

Gave the Passat a bit of love this afternoon, ODK artic used first followed by a two bucket wash with ODK Sublime and finally rinsed off with some filtered water.

The Passat will be getting some love this weekend
Service light came on which means itís due a minor service so ran my mate at Seat and this lot arrived the next day! Excellent service from Listers Seat as always



Strangely the air filter doesnít get changed at the minor but Iíve got a spare vw one so Iíll put that on for good measure

Itís been a busy day today, I got the Passat up on the ramps and made a start on the service



First job though was to change the polllen filter which obviously has been doing its job



Next job was a new oil filter



Followed by the air filter



Old oil then drained



And all finished off with some fresh oil, itís not looking to back under here considering itís got nearly 130k on the clock. Looks like it had an oil leak at some point but canít find any signs of a leak and itís all dry under there plus all the fluid levels are all correct, so I think itís about time I clean it all down



More to follow soon
