Re: Windscreen not clearing (possible idiot alert)

Think its below 3% c the air con is disabled. i used to have a B5.5 passat, it always steamed up in winter when the air con was disabled, but my new B7 is loads better, doesnt steam up 1/2 as much, authough it does help having electricly heated front screen :-)

Re: Help! Door disaster.

Same thimg happened to me, i resolved it by buying a new lock module & cutting the old module in 1/2 from the inside using a combination of angle grinder & die grinder......... very tight, limited access...... a few sparks & a lot of smoke , new module fitted.... job done
