Hello,
Do you know how to weld the fuel tank?
It’s for my Scirocco project.

Okay, here are few updates;

I started to work on the Quattro project...

Preparing for the AWD.











Open the second hole for the tank.



Covering the welding.









Close to finish.







Haldex installed and coded





Then as all projects you should have a problem that complicate it

ABS error;



I checked similar project who had the same issue, but he changed the cluster from Scirocco and replaced by Golf R one.
Here is his comment
“However, the conversation gradually drew the attention to the fact that the ABS control device is so "crooked" that it listens the vehicle model / type code sent from the CAN bus to the instrument panel and does not encode the conflicting type code itself. That is, when the instrument panel claims a car to Scirocco, the ABS control device does not allow it to encode itself to Golf. And Scirocco can't be a four-wheel drive. On the instrument panel, that type is "hard-coded", but it cannot be changed by VCDS.”

I believe if the Scirocco instrument cluster changed from FWD to AWD then the ABS fault will disappear. I don’t know how yet but hopefully will figure it out, all support are more than welcome :)

Stay tuned, more is coming

Congratulations! So jealous, that you have Scirocco and now an AWD. I would much rather have that body style.

Thanks! I like the Scirocco style so much that’s why I insisted to have the AWD on it instead of the MK6 while it was gonna be easier with the MK6

Mission accomplished!



Just few modifications in the suspension and bushing then I can drive it. Unfortunately, it will be with the K04 turbo instead of the BT for the time being but at least a serious step is achieved.

Stay tuned, more is coming
