It looks like its been leaking for a while. It's very slight though. Quite a bit of grime and diesel gathered on the head under the injector so don't think its a new development.
    Yours is common rail, so remember there is huge pressure in those pipes. Any leak will be found by that pressure. Be very careful when working on it. A burst of diesel can blind you. Wear eye protection.

    Thanks! That is actually a very good point! Didn't even think about that. Will just clean up around the area, and then see if I can pinpoint exactly where the leak is. Will probably have to book it in to have it sorted out though.

    Also thinking now. Maybe they didn't torque the injector back into place properly after they did a compression test on the engine? Or perhaps just a seal that needs to be replaced. Any ideas?

    This what the ombudsman sent me. I have in the meantime tried to forward the issue to the NCC - they don't answer their phones or email.

    My last resort now is the RMi as Value Auto care is part of the RMi.

    Dear Mr. Fourie,

    2005 VW – FXK 396 EC ( NU 10450)

    You are kindly referred to the complaint lodged with the office of the Motor Industry Ombudsman of
    South Africa (MIOSA) regarding the problems you are experiencing with your vehicle.

    The Motor Industry Ombudsman is a dispute resolution forum that is subscribed to by the majority
    of the Motor Industry Service providers. There are however certain service providers that are not
    yet contractually bound to the Motor Industry Ombudsman and although we are tirelessly working
    to secure their voluntary and contracted subscription, we unfortunately cannot compel them to
    respond to our correspondence or repair your vehicle as we have no jurisdiction over them.

    Unfortunately, Value Auto Care, Richards Bay is not contracted into the office of the Motor Industry
    Ombudsman of SA and, as stated above, we do not have the mandate to compel them to respond
    to our correspondence or to repair the vehicle or act on the recommendation issued by this office.

    With the above in mind, we confirm that we cannot be of any further assistance in this matter and
    we cannot meet your expectations as noted in your submission to this office. We confirm that we
    will be closing our file.

    We recommend that should you wish to pursue this mater you now contact the National
    Consumer Commission (NCC) who will have jurisdiction in this instant.

    Their details is as follow:

    Commissioner (Acting)

    Thats balls. Surely all dealers should fall under the ombudsman by law. This damn country.

    I assume the NCC is up here?

    Best thing to do would be you popping into their offices on your next trip with all the docs. Then they can't run away.

    simple fix for my sagging passenger door.

    Dealer wants to remove dash to get to the hinge bolts inside.

    This cost my nothing as I had a washer lying around.

    I loosened the two bolts on the bottom hinge, then removed the bottom bolt only, asked my wife to lift the door a bit, slipped in the washer and but the bolt back. Tightened up everything and now it closes like a new door. No wind ingress either.

    Hi Marius,

    Good practical solution. Those work best.

    From the image it seems as if the top bracket has gone out of square with the part where the hinge pin goes through now sitting lower down.

    This prevents the door from being slid back up even when the lower bolt is slackened off.

    If it keeps sagging, I suppose with the door removed, one could "restore" the top bracket with some sympathetic crowbarring, without having to remove it.

    I'm not sure what sags on the hinge or door as there is no play in the mechanism.

    This washer trick works well though.

    filled the tank today.

    When I got to the garage the range on the MFD said zero.

    95 liters went in so I assume when the range gets to zero you have 4-5 liters left in the tank.

    I wouldn't recommend it though.

    It also seems to me that the range is calculated based on the tank level on average long term consumption.

    Gaan maandag na jou hardware store, spandeer so 50c, en koop n wasser met n groter deersnee, as daai wasser wat jy ingesit het te klein is, seat hy nou op baie kleiner deel, passop dat hy nie dwars deur die bakwerk druk nie
    Ricoffy is my voorkeur keuse vir Koffie, en Toyota vir n Bakkie, en ek dra net 2 tone hemde..
