    DEF displayed on mileometer.

    Not sure. Have you checked the owners manual?

    not the best news then i guess

    ''if DEF appears, replace it''

    D'oh. I'd go back to the garage and ask what's happened....

    Have you had it scanned with VCDS to check for errors & a possible reset ...don't use your "friend" to do this - he obviously doesn't have a scooby?

    out of interest: if the panel is replaced will it automatically pick up the correct mileage from memory, or will it need reprogramming? anybody?
