  2. Hey, hope everyone is good. I'm having intermittent issues with the headunit in my 2015 Mk7 Golf GTD. The headunit will start, but it seems "disconnected" from the MFD or other buttons like on the dash. Sometimes after a short period of time it'll come online and be fine. When it doesn't boot properly bluetooth doesnt work. It states "turn ignition on" even though the engine is running. Any ideas? 20200520_180816.mp4

  4. Hi 125 kg is not a lot of weight to overload the suspension as long as its not in there for a long time and over rough roads then it should be fine. Its probably your imagination that it is lower but worth checking if the car settles after a while and if leaning to one side when empty I would have the springs checked but unlikely that would happen.

  6. Hi Keith.....welcome to the Forum Here are some on eBay https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=2008+volkswagen+polo+coolant+temperature+sensor&_sacat=0 Just compare the one you have on the engine to those in the photos but ensure that the colour is the same as there used to be two different types and identified by their individual colour (Negative and Postive temperature cooefficient types)
  7. Hi....welcome to the Forum Servicing a 1.2 Polo should be easy enough if you follow some guidance (YouTube is a semi-reliable source of information) and some tasks are very simple. Basic hand tools (spanners, sockets, etc) and some garage equipment (trolley jack, axle stands, oil drain tray) are always handy to have around and invaluable in working on cars. Other tools such as oil filter wrench, torque wrench, hydrometer to check coolant strength, etc are also handy to have in your toolbox. Most items are available in Halfords at reasonable cost and quite good quality as well. Let us know how you get on with it all
  8. I would say that it needs a good blast to clear it through especially if it was only driven locally.
  9. Hi many thanks for the quick response and advice, as the weekend is nearly upon us I'll get to these 3 points first thing. Really appreciate it very much kind regards Gary 😊

  12. So when you are finally released from lockdown and able to drive your car....what music will you play in the car?
  13. Hi....welcome to the forum There's nothing wrong with a convertible beetle, an iconic car restyled and improved over the years, whats not to love about them 🙂 What year is the Beetle? Could be a relay issue but without knowing more about the car its difficult to truly diagnose
  14. Glad you got there in the end, I must admit that I may have resorted to a hammer a lot sooner 🙂
  15. Hi...welcome to the Forum Sounds a bit odd to be a gearbox fault if the issue is with the clutch. Although it depends on what year the car is? If it is a late car with DSG transmission then it could well be a gearbox fault

  17. Hi Stevie....welcome to the Forum Here is some info that I have found for this code: 01130 - ABS Operation 01130 - ABS Operation: Implausible Signal Possible Causes Fuse(s) faulty Modifications/Retrofits incompatible Wiring from/to Brake Electronics Control Module (J104) faulty Electrical Interference from External Sources High Frequency Radiation (e.g. non-insulated Ignition Cable) Brake Electronics Control Module (J104) faulty Possible Solutions Check Fuse(s) Check Vehicle for Modifications/Retrofits Temporarily remove Modifications/Retrofits (including Wiring) Check Wiring from/to Brake Electronics Control Module (J104) Check Brake Electronics Control Module (J104) Special Notes This Fault Code can only be cleared after performing a Test Drive above 20 km/h (13 mph). Also, have found other info which states that sometimes this code appears after heavy braking or rapid acceleration which could cause the wheels to spin or lock up. Either way, apparently it should clear out after a test drive above 13 mph which will give the system chance to evaluate the sensor readings. Also, check connections to the ABS pump assembly
  18. The cap should open if you disable the central locking but if not possible by the key then insert the key into the drivers door lock to manually disable it.

  22. I suggest a proper check of the electrical system to determine the current draw of various components to then isolate the suspected circuit to see if this resolves the issue
  23. Thanks will check 😃 Thanks will check
