  1. 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)
  2. 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.

    Hi....welcome to the Forum You could try a reputable company who sell secondhand squib rings that would be perfectly useable and safe to fit A few on eBay but which ones to trust, well not sure about that one
  5. Looking to purchase a VW T4

    Cathy Feel free to post up some pics of the T4 and let us know how you get on with converting it to a camper
  6. 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
  7. 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

  9. 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
  10. A/C vs climatronic question

    Hi...welcome to the Forum Simple answer.....I'm not sure! What are the benefits of replacing the system?
  11. Lupo problem

    Seized linkage joints? Worn engine mounts? Play in linkages? Clutch worn or damaged? So many possible causes, I would drop it in a garage to have it checked out before you can't select gears anymore.

  14. Vr6 issues

    Hi....welcome to the Forum The fact that it is 'on song' at higher revs suggests that it is something like a vacuum/air leak in the in the inlet manifold or associated trunking which is causing the lumpy running. A quick emissions test (Oxygen levels) which if higher than zero suggests thats the fault. Let us know how you get on with it Cheers, Trevor
  15. Spares

    Hi Dave If you list them in the appropriate section (e.g. Golf, Polo,etc) that would be the best bet Cheers
