    Any chance you can get a pic of the light??

    Adjusting the headlights, there is a white screw, you need to use an allan key to adjust, you may also need to get it on vagcom to sort it out.

    the screw is next to the light casing, under the bonnet.

    Thanks for the responses. I won't be able to get a pic quickly but when you turn the ignition on it's the bottom left light on the speedo side below the air bag light and it looks like a side on view of a gearbox with a line left and right and a line on top an as I say it illuminates in orange. Any ideas?

    Thats your EML (engine management light)
    Basically you have a fault somewhere.
    You'll need to get the fault read to point you in the right direction.

    See if you can get the car on VAGCOM, run a full diagnostic scan on it and that should highlight what the issue is for you....

    "Emission Control System" - generally just a "get me to a garage" sign, that's also the one that comes one with the battery when you stall just about any car too :(

    is this emmision control or engine management? the vagcom code i got is 17704 which i am led to believe is cooling issues. ive bought a cts and a thermostat which i need to figure out how to install. as for the clicking, im not sure where its coming from but it speeds up some times?
