Re: UK GTXs - please help!



Some points to check:

Noisy/erratic sounding fuel pump (located under floor, just in front of 
the driver's side rear wheel) - a new one will set you back 125 from 
the dealer

Check that the sunroof works OK and that there are no signs of leaks - 
the sunroof drain pipes run down the four corner pillars and can get 
blocked. the water overflows down the headcloth/pillars or drips on your 
head.  It's a real pain if you have to start mucking about with it.

Check that the MFA is okay - another 100 or so to get repaired.

Check starting from cold, if possible: if it is rough when cold but OK 
when warmed-up, the warm-up regulator is probably clogged-up /faulty.

As a general point, check the carpet for dampness as the sciroccos are 
prone to leaks through the windscreen seal & grommets in the bulkhead. 
Check that water has not been leaking onto the fusebox - pull out one or 
two of the top row of relays and check for signs of corrosion on the 
connectors.


There's probably loads more but I can't think off the top of my head...

Cheers...

P.S. whereabout in Scotland are you?
