Re: GTE Electrical Whine

Graham, directly behind the bonnet catch is the blower motor for the interior. Are you sure that it is not that? Use a stetoscope or long screwdriver to touch it and listen if sound comes from it. Again, from my S3 wiring diagram from Kerry I assume 3 wires on the fuse you mention. Two to the coils,...

Re: GTE Electrical Whine

Hello John, I agree that this would be also my first thought but for the connection to the upper left fuse. Graham says it stops as soon as he removes this.

Re: GTE Engine Rebuild

Hi John,

Re: FACET FUEL PUMP 476087
