    Renewing plastics in interior

    I've seen stickers for the buttons to make them look 'better' if that what you're after. As for smartening up the actual plastics.. i doubt you'd manage that with a paint? but happy to be proved wrong

    DIS Bulb Warning

    Thought it must be just something like that, will do as you suggest. Must get some of that electrical contact cleaner, the right hand rear light had a bit of moisture in it

    DIS Bulb Warning

    I've currently got 2 Bulb warnings that are a bit intermittent. One is the rear right brake light, which looks like a bit of corrosion. But the other is the Rear LEFT fog light bulb?... there isn't a rear left bulb. When the warning is lit the rear RIGHT fog bulb (bottom one in the holder) isn't...

    Turbo Suggestions

    Any ideas on labour time a garage would charge for? I'm going to enquire about the cost of getting it replaced (labour only) before deciding what to do, just nice to have an idea on the number of hours to get an idea on what the quote is like. I've been living with the occasional limp mode, I...

    Turbo Suggestions

    For quite a while now I've been getting intermittent Limp mode, normally when taking it to higher revs and up hill. I've had a look at the actuator in the past & that has been pretty stiff to move so am assuming it's the usual sticky vanes, I've tried the turbo cleaner fuel additive that...

    Aero wipers not wiping in the middle

    Aero wipers not wiping in the middle

    Just a couple of thoughts, Is the wiper arm slightly bent? or have a weak spring? I have aero blades on my b6 without issue, so assume they should be ok as long as the arms are still in good shape

    Still love it

    I feel the same.. I have a 54 plate b6 sport avant in Mauritius Blue & still like it after owning it for the past 7 years or so. Bought on around 120k miles & now on 181k miles, it's usage has now dropped considerably as I'm now working from home since covid. But, being the older model I have...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    Good news & bad news for me.. I cleaned up the very corroded abs ring on the rear right (which the error code reported) lights were still on. I bought a new more expensive code reader & that cleared the fault & the lights went out.. and stayed out for the week up to the MOT, took it in for MOT...

    Best oil for 1.9 tdi avf

    I always used to Quantum platinum in my mk4 golf pd 130 & then went with the longlife 3 in the b6, only as thats what was previously used. As Gazwould I'd just make sure it's changed regularly with the correct spec, even though i used longlife oil i do change it annually which probably equated...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    Seems i have the error back now and also it's decided to pop up the 1826 error code as well, that refers to the steering angle sensor... again! I'm hoping the 1826 code is something to do with disconnecting the battery & it having to calibrate (clutching at straws???) as i don't fancy messing...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    Yeah i think i'll have a look at the state of the sensor over the weekend. Just odd how it's keeping the lights on but now showing no error codes? when looking at them ages ago, the abs rings look like they were found at the bottom of the sea! but at that point they were working (it was the...

    ABS/ESP lights but no error codes?

    MOT approaching fast & i've had the ABS & ESP lights coming on intermittently for a while now. Originally my amazon special code reader did pick up a code relating to the rear right wheel speed sensor (think it was code 287), however this past week the lights have been on constantly, I put the...
