VR6 Engine tech / VR6 24v Serpentine Noise
« Last post by billymiller on June 24, 2017, 02:28:47 PM »
So I replaced the periodically noisy N80 (only made the obvious clicking noise for a couple days and then went away), cleared the P0455 (large EVAP leak) code, and now CEL is back with a P0442 (small EVAP leak).

Am I wrong to think this is tied in to the P80 somehow since the code changed or should I just start down the smoke test route...

Also I only had access to a non-Bosch N80 since I'm out of town, not sure if this is possibly asking for a problem since I've read some stories of issues related to not using OEM.

Thanks!

I think this is a great idea. Would be great to make some stuff with my new 3d printer.

After 400 miles on the new parts, my EV threw a MIL, code P0455 - Large EVAP leak, I guess it's time to replace that evap canister (or maybe just tighten down the gas cap??)

I also replaced the vac line going to brake booster prior to this trip, so I don't imagine  that is the culprit...

Any other items to look for related to this code?

Westfalia / Pop top struts replacement with higher strut strength
« Last post by euro2003 on June 22, 2017, 09:58:29 PM »
Specific to Westfallia 2003 Weekender - VW 7D0-823-359A-AM Does anyone have a source for a stronger strut for the pop top.  I believe the current one is 400N or 90 Lb.  based on the numbers on the strut.  I was lookingt for about 100 Lb or 440N. Up to 110 Lb. or 460 N. The problem I've found especially is also other stats: LENGTH 1130mm (44.5 in). cylinder 440 mm (17.3 in) Stroke 630mm (24.8 in).  Ideally with the same connectors to minimize modifications.    I have to believe others who have a rack on top with a carrier or solar panel are weaklings like me with aging and need a bit more lift.  Any source and or model number?  I found one possibility in the U.K. (SGS) but was hoping to find one in the US to get it sooner. SGS doesn't list one but responded that the can make one.
Thanks for any ideas.

Westfalia / Re: 12v sockets don't work

I just come here to ask the same question. In the Bentley it shows fuses under the drivers seat for the weekender but I have the MV.

I've checked under there and no fuses for me.

Anyone figure this out?
