2006 3.0tdi CVT. I drove to the supermarket on Saturday and the car was fine. I came back out to the car and it wouldn't start. The dash lights come on and then nothing, it doesn't even try. I then get the "engage P or N to start" message on the dash. Naturally, it is in P. I removed...
I did discuss this with B5NUT a long time ago but have completely forgotten what we discussed, and as it was in person don't have it on here.
I have a 2006 Avant SE. The wings and bumper need replacing. I have bought this facelift bumper, but as you can see it is bare. I need to source the...
I need to change or refurb the rear calipers on my 3.0tdi Avant. Does anyone know whether these are a straight fit? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F333488810450
I’m in the process of upgrading the fronts and these would be a good, cost...
Come on Lee, the whole point of coming on a forum and asking the hive mind for intervention is to avoid paying money to find out the answer, the answer that you have kindly provided. I probably should have come to you first in fairness. I can always rely on you to know the answer.
I’ve been a forum user for 20 years and an admin for most of that time. The good members are the ones that ask questions without making assumptions. I have every right to shoot you down because of the condescending tone of your post
I’ve read that first post at least 10 times and still can’t find the bit where I said that I was going to do it myself. Could you be a dear and point that out for me?
I’m asking before I buy parts for my bodyshop. On many cars, it’s straightforward, mk5 Golf for example.
The chrome window trim...
The boot lid on my Avant doesn’t open smoothly and then sticks at the perfect height for me to bang my head. I have to push it up the rest of the way. I’m assuming that it is the struts failing. Is there likely to be anything else causing this?
My reverse sensors have started acting up. I get the beep as I go in to reverse but then they don't sense anything. Can VAGCOM identify which one(s) has/have failed or do I just need to replace the lot? I assume it is likely to be the sensors rather than the wiring?
I've done the whole 'stick...
How easy is it? I've found plenty of how-to's on removing the inner door trim, but can't find one for the outer door trim. I'm assuming it can't be too hard as plenty are for sale on the bay of e. Has anyone done it?
Front drivers outer door skin is the one I'm interested in
I too am 6’6” and have more than enough room inside. Mine is lowered on coilovers. You can’t get your fingers between the wheel and arch yet I have no issues whatsoever. I used to, because the rear subframe wasn’t central. It’s adjustable and may need centring
The shop are wrong. On my car it is the opposite side that sticks out further. I have an active thread about the subject at the moment. B5NUT confirms that the rear subframe is adjustable so it can be rectified
