    Hi guys just found the climate control engine temp 49 trick.

    Very useful, does it do anything else as well???

    Only stuff related to the air con controller...

    If you want proper diagnostics use VCDS.. :)

    Yea I've got the cable and downloaded it but it is pretty much useless without paying for it, can't even reset the service light!!

    Hi mate, not sure if you are actually needing your service light reset? But if you do, you do not need VCDS to do it !!

    Finally done, the book says to press the right hand button whilst turning the ignition on, this didn't work for me so after a few tries I got it to work by pressing both buttons at the same time and turning the ignition on.

    sorted!
