Re: Soaking wet drivers footwell

I've soaked my car today with the jet wash, I've spent about a minute on each rubber Window seal blasting out the crud and the water drips fine out the hole at the bottom of the door. Beginning to think it was just the blocked drain holes under the wiper panel and I never noticed it! Sent from my SM...

Where to buy vw parts other than Stealers

My local TPS is now trade only for parts and I don't fancy going to my local VW main dealer. Does anyone know if there is a good online vw parts site these days? Years ago when I was running vauxhalls I could find loads of online parts websites but yet to find a decent vw one. Sent from my SM-G960F ...

Re: Won't rev past 300 rpm when stationary. Hesitant when moving

On standstill, they don't rev past 3000rpm. It's not a fault but a feature.

Soaking wet drivers footwell

Bloody cars! I've noticed recently that my b6 drivers side front foot well is very wet! 2 weeks ago I noticed that under the wiper motors, the drain holes were blocked so assumed it was that. But my carpet is still soaking wet. I know I've got a boot leak on my saloon boot seals, I've got some on or...

Aftermarket radio rubbish reception

Does anyone know if a booster is required to power the rear antenna on my saloon, if an after market radio is fitted? The radio reception is shocking, might get 1 local station. I've checked all the cables, replaced the rear Window antenna, still the same problem. Thanks. Sent from my SM-G960F using...

Back box replacement

Hey! My exhaust has broken off on the weld where it joins the back box. I've since noticed that with it being an original, I can't see any joins until the middle of the car, so the back box and pipe also includes the centre box, which is very long! All replacement back boxes seem to just have a shor...

Lost convenience menu in MFD

Hi, basically when I remove my car key the doors usually unlock, but only the drivers side does now!

I've been into the mfd and lost the convenience menu which obviously is used to program door unlocking etc.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Re: New Android unit, poor reception

Had a go at testing the power to the rear Window antenna and it's getting 12 volts so it's got power. I bought a second hand antenna or amplifier for the rear Window and the reception is still the same. I have tried having the am and fm wires connected, no different. The reception gets worse with my...

Backing plate with rear pads?

Hi, just got some new rear pads for my passat, mintex ones but they come with 4 metal backing plates about 1.5mm thick, pretty sure I don't have this setup at the moment. They are loose in the box and obviously the same profile and the pads. I assume they go between the metal part of the pad and the...

Fitting near rear epb motor, tips after breaking new one!

Hello, any tips for fitting a new epb motor? I managed to snap one of the fitting points off my new one as it was tight on the new o ring. I noticed some corrosion on the recess for the o ring so the diameter was bigger but even after cleaning it up and seeing if would fit it still wouldn't slide on...

Handbrake stuck on

Hi, had the handbrake warning light come up! Got out the car and one of the motors was still running for about ten seconds or so, and one caliper is stuck on!

Is there a fix to see me thru for a few days until I can fix it, thanks.

Re: Sport estate suspension

I might be wrong but I'm not sure if you can purchase a stiffer spring, maybe listed as heavy duty for people who use the vehicle to tow.

Re: Rubbish air con

Just to update, a new pcv valve in the compressor for 15 quid fixed the problem. I was getting 17 degrees at the vents, after fitting the new pcv and a regas, I'm now getting 4 degrees. The new valve is slightly longer at the end which might have been used in the later compressors but does the same ...

Did I read somewhere on here that if the egr fails after the update or within two years, vw will fix it for free?

Haven't had mine done, just curious.

Thanks. Tried what you said but only a slight improvement, still getting fuzzy reception, can only get radio 1 and to local stations, the rest are rubbish. It was like this on my standard basic head unit so something isn't right. Maybe a new rear Window amp will help? Sent from my SM-G935F using Tap...
