LA7W and 8E are both codes for silver. 8E was also used in mid-80's for beige, but in 2000's was used for reflex silver. good luck

Hi i am wondering if i hav a block heater in my 1998 vw jetta tdi

You need to have someone with VW smarts poke around for one. There are three different styles, each mounted in a different location. Backside of the engine, or glued to the oilpan, or in a coolant line.

I have installed a new mass air flow sensor in my VW golf mark 4 tdi 100pd after a fault with the original. It has not cured the problem and I have been told I need to clear the faults in the ecu. Does...

The simpliest way is to have a VW Dealer plug it in to their Diagnostic Computer and clear it that way. Probably charge for an hours labour.
You can buy Generic resetting tools (obd1 11 can etc) from car factors, ebay halfords etc. Not all work on all cars despite what they say in the blurb, So unless you want to splash out on a relly good compatible one - go to the Dealer.
Hope this is of help.

Finding the correct paint

Body shop class taught me to get the paint right, go to the local paint supplier for Autobody shops.
A place like PPG will have a paint sample book to look up the color code that VW used for that year. It's the best way to get the paint right.

You should be able to find a supplier in the Yellow Pages under Autobody Supplies.

2006 VW tdi black smoke while accelerating

The only sensible way forward is to get a list of fault codes from the onboard diagnostic system and take it from there. You could either go to a VW dealer, or if you are technically minded you could buy a £15 interface cable, download some free "VAG diagnostic software" and run it on a portable computer.
There are lots of possible reasons for the problem and guessing will not really help. If these suggestions turn out to be sound, please give my reply a "Fixya!"rating, If they do not, please hold off rating and add a comment with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Paint flaking off the front fender

Know the everything before you go in. If you know what the warranty covers, and you are there for that and meet the warranty criteria, it will be a lot harder for them to give you the run-around when you go in.

I looked around a bit, and apparently there is an issue with the TDI front fenders and the paint flaking. Other than that, the warranty is probably like most and only covers corrosion. I'd look/ask around about the problem on your car. There are several online VW/TDI forums that will probably be able to tell you everything you would want to know.
