    Help needed. Ive found 2 plugs on the wiring harness which i cannot locate to the dash loom/engine loom or fuse box, does any one know what there for, are the required or are these just spares. Im thinking they might be something to do with the ABS as i removed all this as im not fitting it. Any feed back would be appreciated. cheers.

    Well finaly got around to getting some fuel sorted out in the way of a tank trial lol.



    1st one's the old Golf Vr6 tank. (too big lol)
    2nd is a 6n Polo 1.4 16v tank with the Vr6 pump and sender installed.
    3rd is a 1.4 16v Lupo tank .

    I had the Polo tank fitted and was quite happy with it, until i lowered it back onto it's wheels and the end of the tank was being crushed with the axel as is has been flipped

    Just have to make a filler pipe to go from the Caddy's filler too the Lupo filler, fit a Polo 6n fuel filter from the pump feed and it should be fine.
