  12. Jetta 4 and Bora (type 1J) 1999 - 2006
    I recently brought a VW Bora 1.6 S and after a day or two of driving suddenly i realised, when i was turning around i heard a fairly loud squeal coming from the front driver side, by the wheel. If i turn slowly it doesn't make this sound but the faster i turn the louder it is, it is on coilovers...

  14. VW Engine and Gearbox
    After a terminally ill water pump on my 191,000 mile Bora, I also changed the timing belt for obvious reasons. All back together and ran for a week then started to lose power and then stopped a mile or so from home. It was as though something had moved at it was a slow decay not an abrupt stop...

  17. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi there I've had a recurring problem with my 2003 Bora where it's juddered and struggled to gain speed when trying to accelerate, often stalling as a result. The problem only occurs after starting the engine. The problem has returned and become permanent now, and has gone on for the last few...
  18. Jetta 4 and Bora (type 1J) 1999 - 2006
    Just thought I would ask before i go ahead and try and change my backbox. My car sounds like it has a sports exhaust although it hasnt and i dont know if the backbox has been changed before and its just a cheap one. But i have had it looked at and there is no visible sign of wear or holes. So it...

  20. Jetta 4 and Bora (type 1J) 1999 - 2006
    Since i bought my bora a few months ago there has been a strong vibration coming through from the mid section of the car (footwell area) i am positive its part of the exhaust system (standard) As it only does it when going between 2500 - 3200rpm.
