    Thanks for the reply , ive manage to get a second hand one and it works fine, just need to clear air bag light, thanks for all your help
  4. Passat 2012 est

    not sure....but one way to find out, fit it and see if the light goes out may need to clear any stored codes (if any)

    Thanks for the reply, what he was saying is that the sqib wheel will have to be coded even though its the same part
  6. Passat 2012 est

    All airbags can be fitted by yourself as long as the battery has been disconnected for around 30 minutes to allow any electrical charge to dissipate. The SRS system looks for a resistance when the ignition is switched back on and as long as it finds the correct resistance then it the light will go out and the system becomes active. I have never encountered any sort of coding required to fit replacement SRS components.

    it will be plug an play, once you have reconnected the battery the system will recognise the correct resistance and accept it for use.

  17. Looking to purchase a VW T4

    Thank you for your reply! Sorry not to have responded, but I didn;t know that you had replied! I did buy a T4, after thinking that I may not “get into” camping so didn;t spend a great deal in case I decide to sell it on in a year or two! Hope to have some fun in it anyway!
  18. High clutch bite point

    Hi Depends on the year and model of VW as some would have a self adjusting method for actuating the clutch.....it could be that which has altered over a period of time. Just watch the pedal doesn't drop to the floor which is also a common fault on some models
  19. High clutch bite point

    For the last couple of days ive notice my clutch bite point is high. Is there anything that would be causing this other than needing a new clutch. thanks in advance for any answers.
  20. Vw Passat 2012 automatic gearbox software update

    Hi Niall....welcome to the forum It suggests that there is an issue with the engine and its gone into Limp Home mode. I would scan any fault codes after clearing the memory to see if it is current or just a glitch. Let us know how it goes
  21. Hello, Am new to the forum. Today my Passat 2012 2.0diesel automatic displayed the ignition coil symbol and lost power. Car does not go over 40mph now and feels like the clutch is slipping. My mechanic ran the computer on the car and picked up fault code p1741. He told me I need be to update my gearbox software. Can anyone shine some light on this, as I am very worried at this stage and lost for what to do. Is this costly and who should I contact. Many thanks niall.

  24. Looking to purchase a VW T4

    Hi Cathy....welcome to the Club There are so many different type of van out there that look superb and are great driving vehicles. However, the T4 is not one that is up there at the top of the list, but saying that, they were always reliable compared to the later one
  25. Hello, I am looking to purchase a T4 (I think, T4 - or other kind maybe!) I have a smallish budget, say around £7,000 but don;t want to make a mistake and obtain anything that wants a lot spent on it, etc. Any advice, ideas and information very welcome. I live close to Plymouth, Devon
