    7P front brakes need 270 N.m for the caliper bolts. Is it not the same on the 7L?

    270nm is FT, no need for a torque wrench just a long power bar

    Hi guys. Life changes and i now have my Immaculate 2005 V8 Tip Treg, air suspention + rear diff-lock and brand new Grabbers, that wont suit my future plans,......retirement. So I`m looking at something lighter on fuel that I can still tow the caravan with. I have a C270 CDI in the eye for 85k, but I would prefer a 5cyl Diesel TREG as first option. So if you know of a 5cyl Treg in excellent condition of the same value and condition as mine, for sale or preferably to do a swap deal, or know of somebody that would be interested in my Treg for 85k, I would appreciate a lead. Clem 082six540500
    Lets see what the Treg family comes up with before I go through the schlep of putting it up for sale.

    also risk of bolts failing, I had bolts that hold the HPFP break on my ex v6 tdi because of over tight bolts.

    very much related to bolt size. HPFP is 6mm bolts if I recall correctly, very easy to over tighten and stretch them even with a normal ratchet. The brake caliper bolts are massive, you will need a really long extension on the powerbar to stretch those.

    Best way to avoid stretching smaller bolts to is use a small ratchet limiting the torque you can apply when tightening them. I have a little 1/4Ē kennedy ratchet set that is used for all bolts up to 6mm.

    So I got tired of the drooping head liner and decided to see how hard it would be to remove. Turns out it is not hard at all. Now I just have to wait for after the lockdown for an upholsterer to redo the liner for me. All the spunge between the material and liner has perished and is delaminating. I can rub it off with a light touch. I don't know if they can match what it was before, hope they can work some magic. Click image for larger version.

    You can do yourself if you buy the material from a upholstery shop. You have done all the hard work getting it out. I would have tried this as a lockdown project. Material, glue and scissors and you're set. There are a number of Youtube videos on this. I am gonna try a normal "GTi" upholstery for my Mk3 (the sponge/soft touch is the reason for the failure)

    After switching off, my Treg makes a loud whining noise like a fan or pump that keeps running for about a minute after shut off. Any idea what that can be? 2010 V6tdi, CASA I think.

    The thing about torque wrenches is there is no one size fits all.
    Donít buy one for the max torque youíre gonna need if you ainít going to do that work often.
    I have three with different ranges.
    5 - 25 Nm
    19 - 110 Nm
    70 - 350 Nm

    Youíll see that all of them work on a 5 times range more or less.
    Going more than that a big torque wrench will get really inaccurate on the low settings.
    I use my mid range the most when working on general stuff. The small one also every now and then, actually quite a bit, the big one only when working on suspensions, drive shafts, top bolts etc. Canít remeber brake torques now.

    For what I do I really need all three of them. But I started out with the mid one, then the big on and later the small one. Thatís just the order in which I bought mine, but probably over the space of 3 months as I got a need for them.

    Sometimes you would also use the mid range around 100nm just because you donít have space for that big one.

    I believe using correct torque settings on bolts are actually quite critical.
    So many of the bolts are torqued to yield, you really need to do it right and you also really need to replace bolts that was torqued to yield. Normally thatís when you have a certain rotation as the step after the highest torque step.
    Sometimes you can re-use once by halving the rotation on the second time use.

    I opted for force torque wrenches. The quality vs price seemed a really good deal. Some VW workshops in cape town also uses them.

    A long two cents. Hope it was worth something to someone.

    Thanks @willemt

    That is a very good way to explain it.

    Somehow over the years, I have lost a bit of that rationale.
    Probably due to being too much of an all rounder....

    Your R2.46 is appreciated!

    Not sure but you wonít have the space to add that between the socket and power bar in 70-80% of the places you want to use a torque wrench.
    Maybe worth it to get one for checking your torque wrenches.

    Hi guys, does anyone have the right battery size and number for a T1 3.0 V6 TDI BKS?

    I think my battery is about to die on me. Car has been standing a bit, but I still drive as I have a permit. It swung slowly this morning, but started on its first swing. Drove about 10km, then switched off and when I wanted to start again it would barely turn the motor. Had to get a jump start. Then drove from Pretoria to Alrode and didn't switch the car off once, drove back to Pretoria and stopped to put in diesel, switched car off and on the first two tries motor swings slooooowly. Third time, it swings as normal and starts.

    I put it on charge now, cause I have to go to Rustenburg tomorrow. Just don't want to end up with a dead battery in the middle of nowhere...
