Nice one mate, mine did it for a while and it was becasue the plungers on the switches were not set correctly, i've not had a problem since :gl: I will add you to the list bud T:T:

Firstly, sorry if this is the wrong place to post this! :eek:

However, is there a consensus of opinion amongst you all as to which of the various 1.9 tdi engines is the simplest/least complicated to swap for the 1.9 td? Thought I had read somewhere for example that the version in the Passat caused some additional problems to say that of the Golf? I would have thought the engine block was identical, so is it just the anciliaries/looms that vary and cause additional problems.

I am cautiously considering this conversion, so in summary my question to those of you who have done this swap, and with the benefit of hindsight, what in you opinion is the ideal donor car?

Regards

Dave

most info and swaps on here are based on the golf, so most help would come from that swap. I used a passat which required no splitting of the loom although the colours are different to what is published in Penbryns guide. As long as you label everything up you will be ok!

What a great libary! Been reading threads for a while and spoken to a few people here. I have now all the parts to undertake my conversion. I am going from a 2.4 so has taken me a while to get all extra bits together. Penbryns wiring guide and information has been invaluable. So a big Thank you Niall (Penbryn) and Jimmy James and all the rest of the TDi cobverts.

We must have done a good job here guys becasue most people seem to be managing to troubleshoot problems using the library, unlike when most of us did ours and the information wasn't so readilly available. Well done to everyone who has contributed to the cause, team Tdi is growing T:T:T:T:
