Re: Sill Rubber Seals

Hello Simon,
Neil's car is an S3, therefore, the Sill Seal is different to that used with your short wheel base car. The following picture shows the cross section and orientation on it's location in the car.

Re: Series1 2+2 exhaust fitting - update to the tale

Hello Spark, Although the quality of the Bell Exhaust Systems seems quite good, the mounting systems are just rubbish. Or. at least the interface between the two is rubbish. With regards to the mounting straps for the forward mufflers (2+2 cars), they have been and remain an atrocious fit as deliver...

Re: Fuel pump inertia switch

Hello Tom, I've just supplied a Sensata Inertia switch to a client for fitting to an S3. The important thing regarding a mounting point is that it allows full transmission of the inertial to the switch. Accordingly, it needs to be rigid. The switch from Sensata needs to be mounted vertically to give...

Perhaps the following picture showing the area of interest enlarged. In the case of the earlier cars, the Ignition Light would come on when there was no, or very little oil pressure.
