they have a basically job enabling list of parts we need that are otherwise impossible to find but won't supply. If my customer was living in New Zealand, they would send them to him there but not here... My office manager Roy has family in Northern Island but with no contacts in the south, frustratingly here is over there next week and would happily have gone across the border to collect.

I typed a comprehensive reply but it was rejected as too long.

No actual contacts in the south anymore.
In the 70's we bought new shells when reshelling was lucrative and we did OK despite the debates with the then Punt (£).
I suspect those lads have moved on or died so the link has gone.
Cont'd.

Short of hiring a van and a lively trip to Holyhead / Dublin I can see no alternatives but you are a resourceful chap so good luck in this mixed up trading world.
If you have any alternatives let me know, you know where I am.

There is part of VAG called Audi Tradition who we have used for many years. Since Brexit they will not supply to the UK, only EU countries and every other company in the world except the UK. We are rebuilding an Audi S2 Avant for a kiwi customer living in the UK,

Have you got any friends/relatives acquaintances who are in the South? I need someone to obtain parts from Audi Tradition as they will not send to the UK, there will be earnings involved but they would need to be interested and know what they are doing.

Sorry Steve, I never had any contact with the South for many reasons over 55 years, never had the need.
Not sure what you actually need but I am willing to accept parts and ship them to you if feasible.
Just back from a whirlwind tour of friends and family on the Mainland which is a shame because had I known I could have brought them over for you.
If you can be more specific I will have a think.
Sam.

Morning people,I have a 2016 Golf gtd with 103,000 miles and it has developed an issue of pressure building in the cooling system.It was first suspected to be a water pump so auxillary and main pump were changed to no avail,the thermostat was next and then a new expansion bottle but still no cure.The car does not overheat or run rough,anybody have similar experience or an answer as it's getting annoying now?

Hi,
when you say pressure build up do you get coolant loss? on your coolant reservoir there is a pressure relief valve can you see any coolant marks or leaks from there...

Hi, Please Help I have a VW polo 5 1.4 and show a code P0420 and an engine light is on, what might possibly be a problem? Also It take time to start the engine. I always have to try to start many times before it starts. Surprisingly when it has moved, that problem does not exit it starts at the first start

Thanks Crasher, I have already ordered a second-hand one from Ebay, so hopefully it will do for a while...

If there is no flow of fuel from the fuel rail return, no fuel is getting there or out past the regulator which could suggest that even though the pump is running and pumping, it’s pressure is too low.

HI, you answered a problem for me and explained the routing of the current to operate the horn. I have 12v at pin 2 on the relay socket, I get the impression from your answer that should not be the case. am I confusing things?
the printout from diagnostics states, "03266.009 ACTIVE/STATIC ACTIVATION RELAY FOR SIGNAL HORN - OPEN CIRCUIT/SHORT CIRCUIT TO GROUND"
