    Electronic Handbrake Fault

    I've got a 2006 VW Passat (new shape), which has an electric handbrake, there's just a button you press on the dash. Recently the hand brake has started to not release, I press the button, nothing happens (the light stays on the button), keep pressing, still nothing. I have to turn the engine...

    vag specialist

    I've used these people before, the owner use to work at Audi Chelmsford, as the Service Manager. - Strangely I was recommended them by a member of the service team at Audi Chelmsford, when I wanted something done on my car, but didn't want to spend a fortune, so he told me about him, and said he...

    E-bay VAGCOM Cables

    I bought this one: Not had it long, but resolved the issue I had, unplug the "passenger Air-Bag is off light", from the radio, causing the airbag warning light to come on, needed it reset. This did the job for me nicely...

    A4 gone - New Passat arrived

    lol, I've read up in the manual, it can be used as an emergency stop, if the foot pedal was to fail, but it will stop the car quickly, as if you'd slammed on the brakes. I had a go at slow speeds, in a quiet car park, and can confirm, it does slam on the speeds. It does also state, that it may...

    QE2 bridge (Dartford) Average Speed Cameras

    Are the ones with signs not the cameras before the tunnels, in Kent. - I still don't think the cameras are live yet, as takes them long enough to sort these out. - I think they'll put average camera signs up first too, as they did on A127 recently. I use these every day, also never seen...

    Why did my passenger window open when parked?

    If it was down a little bit, I'd put down the remote, holding button slightly too long, as every so often it did it on mine, only very slightly though, as at a distance, didn't know if it had unlocked, as no lights flashed, so held a bit longer. But fully open, hope for a accident, guess you...

    Audi UK Warrenty Claims Phone Number

    That's the right thing to do, also not sure where it stands on changing that rule on vehicles after they've purchased, as that's the warranty on your vehicle. I rang customer services, they informed me there is no special warranty dept, but dealers deal with it direct. - you could ask to speak...
