I do not have a B6 so I do not know for sure, but could it be that, if the wipers were to move when the bonnet is open, the wiper arms would strike the edge of the bonnet?
Correct.

Re: boost pressure sensor

Cheers Jasimog will have a look tomorrow, am I better off looking for it from under the car You should be able to see it from above with a decent torch looking straight down behind the radiator / fan shroud, but access is probably easier from underneath with the undertray removed - you'll see the b...

Re: boost pressure sensor

On my BKP it's at the front of the engine bay, central, just behind the bottom of the radiator. It's screwed in to the top of the boost pipework on the exit side of the intercooler. The pressure sensor on my car is part number 038 906 051C, I think it'll be the same for a BLS.

Question is does anyone know the thread size for a 2010 B6 highline Estate, I think it's M14x1.5 but would like confirmation before I order.
A standard wheel bolt is M14 x 1.5 x 27 (part WHT 001 812).

Re: 12 volt outlets

I was curious about this and have just checked my handbook (printed March 2005).
Section 3.1, Controls and Equipment, Pages 95 & 96.

So it does say that the sockets are live all the time. VW must have changed the design at some point?

Re: 12 volt outlets

The stock setup is 12v sockets live on ignition on. If you have permanently live sockets with ignition off then it may be that someone has fettled with the standard setup in the past. Interesting, because I quite like the always-on setup and just took it for granted. The car was pretty stock when I...

The radio works great but now I have an airbag light on
When you remove the dash trim panel around the radio, the trick is never to unplug the airbag warning light - just leave the panel dangling but still connected. I can't remember how to reset that airbag light, VCDS might not be enough.

Re: Rear tyre wear

Is this normal with this car that garages cant check the rear alignment? That's tosh. A 4 wheel align is possible and would solve the inner tyre wear problem. However, the 4 x eccentric bolts used to align the rear can seize in the bushes and need replacing first. If (guessing from your username) y...

Re: Driver's door won't unlock on external handle after being locked

The electronic deadbolt is not disengaging. The problem lies in the sealed lock assembly in the door, you should be able to buy a second hand one from eBay for about £15 including postage. I had exactly the same problem on the drivers side rear door earlier this year and changed the lock unit. I've ...

Re: P0299 turbo underboost

Out of curiosity, how does a fuel additive clean the turbo? I am presuming you mean injector cleaner, and I don't know where you're buying the Mr.Muscle from but it isn't Tesco if its costing £100 over a few months. As I said, it's a fuel additive marketed for cleaning turbos :-?? https://www.forte...

Next job is to replace the plastics sheilds under neathe and the inner wheel arch protectors as they have been damaged previously.
Any tips on where to get such items would be welcomed.

Re: P0299 turbo underboost

Fully agree that Mr Muscle is, at best, a temporary fix and IMO a waste of time if you want to keep the car. I had better results when running the car with a couple of bottles of Forte Turbo Cleaner added to the fuel, but it still doesn't cure the problem and it's quite easy to spend over £100 over ...

Re: URGENT: COKE LEAKED INTO MY CUP HOLDER

Centre console can come out, but it's carpeted underneath and the coke has prob just soaked in. Only concern would be the Electric Parking Brake module which sits underneath the centre console, but just a little further back.
