    Golf Mk5 Fuse F8 10A - Whats it for ??

    Hi - Currently trying to diagnose Emissions Workshop indication and the yellow engine light is on continiously. I have found that fuse F8 (10 amp) is blown in the engine bay fuse box. I replaced it and it blew again straight away.
    Can anyone advise what Fuse F8 controls and hopefully I will be nearer to finding my fault.
    Worth mentioning - The car is running fine despite the above !
    (Golf 2.0 SE TDI GT Sport 2004)



    Many Thanks - Chris.

    It is for the inlet manifold flap motor and the cooling fan control unit, you need to fit a new inlet manifold flap.
    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Its an easy job Chris,disconnect the big pipe coming up from the intercooler by pulling off the spring clip bag the pipe and shove it out of the way,its easier to take both the flap and egr off together so remove the exhaust feed to the egr (two bolts)retain the gasket,next disconnect the wiring to the flap,then remove the three bolts holding the flap etc to the inlet manifold then lift it out and split them on the bench.Check the condition of the rubber type seal between the egr and flap and other side (inlet manifold)should be ok, also check the exhaust to egr gasket as its not in with the new flap,salvaged mine so used again no problems.

    Thanks Nevo - its 7pm and cold out there now ! - but I'm gonna go and get the job started - I have got the replacement flap for 206 inc VAT from GPS earlier (VW quoted me 316 inc VAT) Just need to find a 10A fuse somewhere. I'll let you know how it goes !

    Thanks for all your !

    Chris.

    Talking Re: Golf Mk5 Fuse F8 10A - Whats it for ??

    All sorted an running as sweet as a nut ! - My many thanks to Crasher & Nevo
    It took me about an hour and a half to change the inlet manifold flap and the loss of one allen key ! That pig of an upside down allen screw at the back ! Will use lots of blue tack on the end of the allen key if I ever have to do it again !
    Replaced 10A fuse F8 - All warning indication has now disappeared and all is back to normal. Engine also idles very nicely too
    Quick final question - will the fault/s still be logged in the vehicles diagnostic system or does it clear itself ?

    Thanks again, Chris

    Thats unusual for the emmissions light to go out by itself,anyway don't worry if its back to normal its ok,thats why I said bag the pipe from the intercooler,drop something down there and it makes the job harder.

    Sorry for the duff info I posted above ..... GPS ?? No Idea why I typed that ! Its actually gsfcarparts.com - sorry for any confusion caused !
    The part I received was identical to the one removed, same manafacturer etc. I have just checked the invoice and it cost 205.63 inc VAT.
    Mind you don't drop that rear screw !!
    Also worth a mention .... after you have removed it make sure you take your shoes off when you go in the house cos the sooty oil deposits get everywhere ..... and I can advise its a real PIG to clean up off the carpet !!!
