    I had a look at this and I can see no way for the rear sun roof to open. It appears to be fixed in place.

    Would love to be proved wrong but I just don't see any way for this to happen.

    In my old Fiesta there is a reset button on the control stalk, if you hold it down you get a diagnostic menu. Gives you all sorts of crazy stuff, can test your instrument lights, dials etc... Is there a similar diagnostic utility on the A3?

    Doesn't work on my 2010 TDI either. Maybe cause I live in the states and they take away all the cool stuff :(



    Can you be more descriptive? I haven't been able to find this "box" to check.

    Cheers Paddy. So my calculations being correct, it is drinking a litre about every 1500 Miles atm.
