I was reading this discussion (below) as my MK5 has no spark suddenly:
I tested the coil with a volt meter and I was getting a reading of 3 set at 20k. I think this is okay. I have a feeling my spark plug cap is the issue. Is this common or not? It is the type of cap that screws into the HT lead. Could I buy them from the normal Villiersparts or meetens or should I buy a new Magnetron coil with, what looks like, a different spark plug connector?
Lastly the starter clutch on the MK5 are the bearings meant to be loose?
