When fitting the bumper do I have to order R32 washer covers or can i use the one from my gti bumper? As always, Brian and Robby at Kauffman Tire 770-614-5650 took care of me. Seb, as far as I know you should be able to use the existing covers. I have similar gripes with a polyurethane bumper installed on my Z by a body shop, so maybe I am just too picky. I didn't have the success with this nutsert tool that I have had in the past, so I dug out my old DieselGeek nutsert tool and improvised. All these posts about the mounting on the sides of the bumpers got me worried about the 2nd hand R32 bumper I bought! I know there have been a few people that have bought R32 replica kits off eBay as there have been some posts about this in the past.
This is what your left with. One thing that crossed my mind is the combustion chamber, which is in the head with the 24Vs. Held in place with spring-tension clamps and measured then fixed and screwed in place. I always remove the fill bolt first, this is better than draining the fluid first and then finding out you can't remove the fill bolt to refill. My knob of choice was the machined aluminum knob, designed to fit perfectly in your hand when correctly flat palm shifting. The delivered price for this is £420. Here is the for the R32 exhaust.
Theres a few mounting points on each wheel arch one by each headlight and two lower down by the grills. I ran the wire along the top of the headliner, down behind the airbag, down the a-pillar, and over to splice into pin 17 from the headlight switch harness. The pieces look great and are complementary to Jay's billet interior pieces. Ah, mine sat really badly and were protruding over the edge of the bumber guide so I chopped it down a bit and that seemed to do the trick. When screws were fixed all heads were epoxy resined and smoothed. I take it alot of drilling holes? I made these holes a little smaller than the screws so that they would catch and remain somewhat tight.
After installation I went for a test drive and surprisingly I did not think the result was horrific vibration as I had heard, just feels more solid, with a subtle vibration that should reduce as they break in. It'll look different at the next meet!!! You will see this as white spots on the bumper near the fenders and headlights. You also need to drill holes for the grill to lock into. As there's a very good chance you'll lose this trying to get it back on again,a 4mm stainless bolt or screw and Nyloc nut is a much easier way to do the same job,and much easier should you need to take it off again. I only know of 1 bodyshop near to me and mate used to work for them and said there really good but guess his opinion is biased as good mates with bloke running the show. Good to hear from ya. Perhaps a search of their posts may help but I'm sure you wont have any problems getting it on.
Some video footage taken by my wife here: and and some pics note the faded caliper paint due to heat, time for some G2 epoxy caliper paint : Oil Drain Valve from - This valve allows you to quickly drain your oil without worrying about stripping the threads on the aluminum oil pan. The surface has to be scuffed up and free of grease so the new paint will stick. Then again, there may be enough variation that this may not be a problem to others. The new one also comes with all 3 grills in black plastic. Make sure that the cover on the back of the housing is sealed back up before installing the headlight again. Cheers lads Seb Im pretty sure the headlamp washer covers are a totally different shape on the R32.
Thanks alot mate Seb Hi mate, I've got one of the cheap ebay fiberglass R32 bumpers on the front of mine at the mo. Hi csg That is spot on! The bumper was taped off and several coats of paint with built in adhesion promoter were then applied, tack time between coats is 10 minutes, total dry time one hour. A larger bit was then used to flush the screw heads so that they did not make contact with the detector. Euro spec mirrors are blue to reduce glare and and aspherical wide angle to eliminate blind spots. You'll also need to release the wheel arch liner from the rear bumper which we found jacking up the rear of the car gave more space between the wheel and the arch to allow us to work without the need to remove a wheel. Thanks mattdub, defo weekend job! Just in case anyone else wants to do this we sell the Genuine R32 Front Bumpers. Remove these as well, and the headlight can be pulled out.
Some pics before and after below: Purchased a used W8 Console, originally from. They have two tabs that hold them in place, as seen below. Easy to install installation instructions. Delivered with instructions and a squeegee, using a heat-gun to heat the glass lenses first, then heating the film, and starting on one end with the squeegee and slowly working over to the other side while removing the backing, helps to have a helper. Hi All Im been searching the forums pretty much for hours on this.
Figured I might as well change out all the bulbs while the front was off, so fitted Osram Silverstars all round and blue tinted sidelight bulbs which came free with them. Also have to cut out drivers grill to allow air passage. Notice Touareg Torch flashlight charging in rear 12v power outlet. The dash defrost vents just pull out, the new ones are installed noting the proper orientation and pressed in. I stand corrected re the washer covers. . Will get some better ones tomorrow.
