    hello all!
    i havent been all for ages due to getting rid of my ol'1.6 for a lovely v64motion mk4. i say lovely......im booked in 4 4 new lambda sensors and a fan resister....£700!
    my question is if i get the fan resister done, will it make my aircon work?
    or is the compressor already knackard?
    without aircon is it worth having the job done?
    ta.

    I'd get a second quote if I were you, that price sounds ridiculous. :(

    Yes I would still get a second opinion, are those main dealer prices? If it was me I would try & find an independent VAG specialist & get another quote.

    Miltek are about the best you can buy IMO. Don't rush out to buy a new cat though. The Lambda sensors have probably gone at the same time due to an underlying issue. Was this car affected by the Tesco contaminated fuel issue a few years back?

    Have you checked that there are no misfires?

    The A/C won't work unless the fan works. Is the fan completely dead?

    well,...just finished work and had a bumpy ride home on my donkey (ive named him tadams) and picked up two hippy hitchhikers following a star,...it looked like henry kelly to me.
    any how back to the v6!
    its going to a vag specialist (he he thats wot me bird calls me) and he is fitting vw parts.
    if the resistor is fitted it should fix the slower fan.
    so i guess i will have to see if the air con is knackard (cheers mr hdi fun)
    has anyone got the lambdas cheaper from anywhere? (not aftermarket ones)
    also where can i get a milltek sports cat from?
    i have looked on there website etc but, there is one for everything but a v6 4motion.
    is it the same as r32?
    got ta go hav'a banana!!!!!!! cheers all!
