Re: Fuel Pump Wiring

Hi,
adding a fuse sounds a good improvment to protect the wiring loom to fuse itself.
What about incorporating an inertia switch? It is an impact switch which would turn the pump off in the event you had an accident ...

Petrol vent pipes

My car does not com from the US. Anyway, I'm surprise because there is not vent pipe (C34369) coming from the tank until a sort of extractor. Is it normal ? Is there fuel smell to extract in the US/Canada cars only and not in Europe ones ? :banghead: https://s1.postimg.org/nj4zoq11r/Vent_pipe.png

Hi, If it helps I'm running 215/65 R15 tyres all round & these appear to be a good alternative. The thing to be very careful of is to ensure you get 'V Rated' Tyres as there are very few 205/70 R15 tyres that comply with this as many were produced suitable for vans? Whilst I don't have a desire to ...

Hi all
I working on the front calipers from my S3.
They have been replated and new pistons+seals are going to be used.
Does someone knows the torque to be applied on the 4 screws used to joint the 2 1/2 calipers together ?
