    Is this Anyone's on here

    Plates are easy to change, owning it from new isn't so much!

    Wheels colour and location all make me think it's a long time member on this forum called Chillie but I'm pretty sure it's not his reading the blurb.

    Show us your dirty cars

    Nah it got scrapped a long long time ago. Amongst it's many issues, the area around where the trailing arms mounted was 99% rust.

    02M Selector Forks

    Too late mate, sold it.   I know they say better the devil you know... in this case I did, and I wanted out!   The list of other stuff that was broken or on its way out was truly very impressive - it'd been used and abused and under-maintained for a while so it's all good.

    02M Selector Forks

    Pretty much.   So it's been confirmed today that the gearbox needs a full rebuild.   Despite the parts only being £90 from VAG, I think I'm on the verge of scrapping it. After all, the cambelt is overdue, it needs discs and pads all round and the MOT is due in a couple of weeks and I've had three trouble free in a row so this one must be a bad 'un!!    If anyone wants a very broken PD130 Bora with 177k for spares or repairs, you have tonight to let me know! Very cheap ;)

    And that presumably will tell me if they need replacing - which is then box out?

    02M Selector Forks

    Alright peeps, I'm in need of an education.   I have 52 Plate Bora with a 6 speed 02M gearbox. Its got a few miles on it (177k!). On the way home tonight I couldn't select 4th, and then soon after, couldn't select any other gear. It's stuck in a gear now, not sure which one but its high enough not to be able to pull away in.   I have free play in both parts of the mechanism on top of the box, and it sounds like I'm selecting gears with them, but inevitably each time I think I'm in a different gear it still behaves as if its in a high gear. What I think is neutral is still in gear when I lift the clutch.   From 10 minutes of Googling, my problem could be a broken selector fork. Can anyone give a very tired person (who has very little understanding of the internal magic of a gearbox) of how to further diagnose said fork issue, and a summary of what the solution is?   Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Ste

    Audi quattro S1 E2

      A little more strength??? That will be something like a 50% increase mate! That said, nothing like a bit of engineering overkill.   Cage looks suitably awesome already.

    If you think thats a lot, you want to see how much BDA/G engines are worth now!

    Alternatively, try activating Compatibility Mode in IE.   I get forced into using it at work, I have to use this trick in a lot of circumstances like those you mention.
