    Did you disconnect the egr?

    Black Smoke

    Mine used to smoke pretty badly when accelerating for a while, then after a few months the power seemed to tail off, disconnected the egr valve, sorted, no smoke and runs a treat.

    creaking brakes

    Mine has new pads and discs all round, decent makes and all calipers and sliders are in perfect condition. Mine creaks when stood still with it in drive. If the brakes work and feel ok I don't see how it could be a caliper issue!

    Doesn't sound excessive really. Have you had it scanned for codes?

    Discs on their own or pads too?

    As i say if youve plenty of meat left on the pads re-face them and let them bed in again. Might help.

    Hmm could be, unless the wiring is at fault on the injector. Which injector is it?

    If your rocking autos then i think your going to be stuck with it. You could try re-facing the pads.

    I changed my fuel filter a few months ago, ran a bit smoother. But i cleaned my egr out which made no difference at the time but then about 2 months later i noticed the large amount of smoke when accelerating. I disconected the egr, sorted.

    Clocks problem?

    Mines an 03 plate, only had it 12 months, done nothing but cost me!

    Clocks problem?

    Done a bit of digging and it could either be the light module or a short between that and the clocks, although if it was a short I would expect it to do it all the time. Not checked any connections yet but it's been ok today! Starting to fall out with this car!

    Clocks problem?

    Could be, it's thrown up k-bus and light module internal error. Both cleared for now so will see how it goes!

    Clocks problem?

    Seems to have righted itself for the time being. Any ideas anybody?
