  1. I think it may be better to use a scan tool to check the errors and reset the lights from there
  2. Thanks for posting the solution that will be helpful to other members with this issue
  3. Well I suppose if they work and have done for that amount of miles then they should be good to fit. Not sure if you have to code them in though?
  4. Thats a tough one and I can only imagine the best way forward would be to replace the seat with something more suitable to you. Scrapyard would be my first port of call for a replacement seat
  5. I would be tempted to pull off the trim in the boot area which may lead you to find the problem. Managed to resolve a similar issue on a Toyota recently and it turned out to be a plastic clip that had dropped into the latch mechanism
  6. Engine mounts? Subframe mounts? Anti-Roll Bar Links? Any of the above can cause a similar noise
  7. It would be advisable to scan the ECU to see what fault codes are stored in there. Could be anything from engine management to ABS related faults, maybe something simple though
  8. It looks like the vacuum hose from the Brake Exhauster which is driven from the engine. It would be quite vital to get this sorted as soon as possible. Looks like there are some other hoses that have some chaffing wear on them as well
  9. The window regulator is cheap to buy and relatively easy to fit if you have basic handtools List of parts on eBay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2499334.m570.l1313&_nkw=volkswagen+golf+mk7+drivers+side+window+regulator&_sacat=131090
  10. I believe it is the turbo variable vanes which are stuck in place with carbon and needs cleaning. Here is a link to a cleaning kit: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/323958600044?hash=item4b6d6ff16c:g:basAAMXQfvlSg4~P
  11. not sure but not worth taking the chance it could well be the auxiliary drivebelt pulley but it sounded more metallic rather than a dry belt noise
  12. That doesn't sound good and i would take it back to the garage who changed the cambelt to check it out. Quite common for bolts to shear but this is not from overtightening just poor quality bolts used by VW
  13. may have to ship in from abroad but costs are sometimes cheaper but take into account duties and carriage though
  14. larger diameter wheels and lower profiles would give the car the stance and improved handling without compromising the suspension ride height too much
  15. Would ask your local dealer for their estimated timeframe....could be some time with the current world situation and semiconductor issues
  16. not sure it will but worth trying some parts up to your car to compare if you find someone that has some for sale and doesn't mind you doing this
  17. A VAG specialist garage may be able to programme in the firmware to make this function operational
  18. Hi, welcome to the Club The cambelt will need changing on both mileage and time so it will now be six years old so I would programme it in to be changed soon
  19. Hi....welcome to the Club! It will probably need the refill programming in if the content ran low. A local garage with a scanner should be able to do this at low cost
  20. Does it cut out when you start to drive? Installation looks fine, except for there looks like another dimple a few degrees to the left of the top mark which may be BTDC rather than TDC mark?
  21. I don't imagine it will as it was a software upgrade which affected performance but not Adblu delivery to the engine
  22. I use iCarSoft for this purpose so yes, it will do that and more
  23. Sounds like it needs the codes clearing and calibrating the steering control unit
  24. Are all three connections used? e.g. is there 3 connectors on the plug?
  25. Aftermarket bulbs such as Philips and Osram will improve the light output considerably. Halfords always have a good range of them in stock
