    Investigated the heavy bonnet today. Does anyone else have insulation under their bonnet heat/sound shield? I've checked two other GTIs that only have the grey insulating panel.

    Both mine bonnets only had shield, not insulation.

    Yup, mine's the shield only. Looks like the previous owner got his bunnings and repco shopping lists mixed up- that's loft insulation there...

    Thanks guys I was figuring it was just crap but always good to check. That explains why the bonnet is so heavy, I've got a replacement shield so I'll pull the old clean out the rubbish and fit up. Just need to buy some matching rivets!?

    So it looks like I'll be looking to buy 15 x 6995 56 Bonnet Sound Proofing Clips
    Does any one have any of these spare before I buy some in?
    If not does anyone else want some? they will be very cheap.

    Hey mate, I'm yet to source the sound proofing (assuming my S3 originally had it), but I'm happy to grab some of the clips if you're ordering. I'll likely need the full amount also. Happy to transfer you the cash now. I'm in no rush for the clips though.

    Thanks

    Spot on! I had a look at the Peugeot part and it's a Christmas tree clip for 6mm hole with a large head.

    Most likely, however being time poor I'll still buy them online, I'll try some scrivets, there's a Ford part (and I'm sure many others) that's the correct size.

    The decision is solid now that this GTI will be back on the road!
    As a survivor, battle scars will mostly remain, mechanically it will be sound again. Even with its quirky S1 dash. May the force be with me!

    Ok so I'm in... For good this time, well I hope so anyway.
    After thinking I'd solved the problem and being locked out again I dug deeper.

    It wasn't the central locking actuator... It turned out to be the external door handle lever in the door latch. It isn't spring returning (the door handle is returning) but the lever stays partially up and jams the mechanism. I'm estimating broken spring inside latch/lock mechanism.

    Now to find a good used one.
    Happy days

    Care package for little silver arrived today, it's nice to have a few more puzzle pieces in hand. Now to fix the tailgate so the grey panel can go on.

    Last day of work for 2016 today and so I'm thinking a holiday project task is to get the clutch sorted. It's written in intertechowebink now so it must be!

    First thing out is the dodgy clutch master cylinder



    Anyone want a slightly abused clutch master cylinder guaranteed to be total crap fit in a 205GTI!! ....

    Thanks yes I put some effort into getting most of the mould and moss off the car.

    I'll use some of the Autogylm product it gives a really nice natural result, I'm not such a fan of the plasticare.

    What on earth did they use to make the torsion bar screws? That has to be the softest bloody screw I've ever met!

    Lovely day for a drive!

    Little Silver moved to another workshop today so I was able to get under it and get cracking on the clutch replacement.

    Pretty lucky find to have a guy with no legs plug into the back of your trailer to hold the car on!

    Yeah, just imagine how long his legs were when he first installed foot brakes on the trailer flintstone style
