well good look changing your or you're headlight bulb if You buy megane oh and look forward to carpets being soaked from You using aircon!! LOL

 

Urm...ok but why? Have you owned one??

 

no best mates got one....

to change a headlight bulb You have to take front wheel off and squeeze your or you're arm thru a 3" gap. terrible

also electrics are dodgy random indicator failure

yeh the aircon drips (obviously) but i works its way thru and 'can' soak the carpets

 

 

Yeah i remember that episode of fith gear aswell [^o)]

There is an access hole built into the arch sheild...its not rocket science and hardly enough to put most off buying a car.

Have a search on here, every other post is about a golf with a wet carpet, and come to that i ended up removing my battery to change my n/s sidelight bulb the other day.

Every car has its issues.

yeah sounds like dodgy temp sensor £30 fix, get it mapped in the new yr it will transform it, or is it mapped?


if so do some vagcom logging, just to check

It has been mapped (revo) it's come with a sps controller? Do you know the best setting to have that on? I will replace the temp sensor tomoz- am hopin it's not the stat because I will have to wait for a garage to fix that :/

temp sensors go for fun,


im not a revo guy, if you have vagcom.


set the sps to its lowest settings and log 020 this is timing, you want 0 across all cyclinders, then up yous sps setting, check again, you want no higher than 5/6 in the cyclinders personally dont go over 3
