Quick update on my GTV 2.0 TS. Came out of uni on thusday eve, got in the car, turned the key and a very loud cracking noise, and then nothing. I had dash lights but the car wouldnt even turn over. So quick call to the AA and a tow back home. Starter motor has packed in! Great...just when ive spent £1200 of my uni loan since only owner the car for 4 months!
I still have to sort out the MAF. So im guessing another few hundred quid for these two jobs.. Does anybody know if its possible for me to do these jobs myself? I know the starter motor is situated behind the engine block under the ignition rail...looks real hard to get to. But the MAF just disconnects by a couple of screws i think. Is there any way of making the air system any better on my GTV? These induction kits, do they replace MAF or does the MAF just connect onto them?
