I like to see what's happening in the engine bay, and all that you get are idiot lights telling you when it's broken.

So started on my gauge install on sunday evening.

bought some R-Spec stepper gauges.
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 4A8F966E-72A1-4AFD-91FB-277DC0537C4B-1861-0000026DA4C7DBA6

boost, water temp and oil temp. (will add oil pressure in future)

ordered up water temp sender adapter 30mm (1 3/16") for the top radiator hose.
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 9BAA07DB-FC3A-44C1-984F-149E39C52190-1861-0000026D95C434ED

to be installed here:
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie D32E1692-DE16-4AC2-8328-2E86CC7F5DD4-1861-0000026D88C3AE4A

so cut hose in half, drained some coolant into suitable container below. then measured up size of adapter to insert and cut some more off the hose.
Used some teflon tape on the thread of the water temp sensor and fitted to adapter adapter, and put adapter into radiator hose. A pain to fit due to batt and power steering hose in the way, but once in secured with hose clips. refilled coolant reservoir to correct level and ran engine to temp to remove air bubbles in system. checked for leaks etc..
job done
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 9FEC8C1C-5667-4BCB-9692-7D916CA7FC3C-1861-0000026D7F8D3678

Next is the boost gauge sender:
Tapped into the boost line from the manifold with a T-piece.(looks too big, but there is 12mm in the pipe.)
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 79271955-1264-4238-9790-197633C722D7-1861-0000026D74DA0A70

runs up to sensor via a inline filter. Installed sensor up behind the air box/MAF sensor out of the way.
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie AB14FD67-02D2-4CCC-BD0D-D2386C84F302-1861-0000026D6E1FFB53

Next task was to run the cables from the sensors into the cab.

so took apart the top of the dash and removed the inner dash panels to look for a suitable location/grommet to run the cable through. I didn't want to drill anything.

left hand side: potential to run alongside the ECU loom and into the engine bay, but it was too tight a fit. It would also mean removing air box and ecu bits the engine bay. no thanks.

but whilst there the pollen filter needed a little clean Wink
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 9D127360-782A-4285-99D6-6ED84120F11D-1861-0000026D66DE166A
and around the ECU...
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 1A58B1FE-4BB5-41EB-AA01-F74E8EEF5258-1861-0000026D42F00C50

Drivers side was then checked. a bit cleaner
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 9143DFD5-435B-4F8E-8336-64CCEF3259EB-1861-0000026D2F6FC336
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie F46BD9F8-CF60-4EE8-865A-1F1B1CC9A15B-1861-0000026D17CAB6CD

found that the rubber grommet had lots of room left, so opened up a new hole in it to feed the cables through.
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 0F302B7A-4615-426B-A843-FBC554177B97-1861-0000026D0CFDD5B0
this also is easy to get to in the engine bay.
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie CBC07D1E-F627-4B62-8048-4EEACC53F7DB-1861-0000026D060B00FD

ran the oil temp cable at the same time and cable tied them along an existing trunking to the boost and water temp sensors.
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie F79B8D63-2121-420D-9427-759DA2AEC7C1-1861-0000026CF09AFA7E

oil temp cable secured out of the way for the moment.
LJ - 20v 1.8T newbie 15071753-5AAD-4F57-BEC4-68B0C476E6B5-1861-0000026CFE225B69

next jobs:
installing oil temp sensor via a sandwich adaptor on the filter
prepping and painting gauge pod.
wiring in gauges and fitting up

Done a few more bits to this in the new year.

First on the list was to sort the random alarm going off every time it rains!

Problem located to the rear centre brake light in the boot. All lose and the seal was not doing it's job. A common fault apparently.

So removed the inside trim, centre brake light and all of the locking mechanism.

Found the culprit connection/sensor wire in the rear lock.

Two weeks ago, I had to park the car opposite the house... as my drive was blocked by another car..

the result.. is some twat hit it and drove off.

not happy. wasn't as bad as it looked. most polished out, but has gone through to the plastic in places..

just been professionally cleaned, blasted and refurbished 6 months ago for £315 and had new tires on then. so have over 6-8mm tread all round.. WIN WIN!

215/40/18 front and 225/40/18 rears

Tried to make them blend in with the lounge so Mrs T didn't get upset...
