    Understanding Module Coding

    I have emailed the Ross Tech support department for some assistance, just trying to understand things a bit myself. Tomorrow I will be retro-fitting the Bluetooth KIT 7P6035730F module in my MY12 Skoda Octavia VRS. In preparation I have had a look at the CAN bus coding as I believe I will need...

    That's all folks

    Well after 5 years with the A3 I am off to pastures new on Saturday. The A3 is being traded in against a 9 month old Skoda Octavia VRS 2.0TFSi in Race Blue. So I have a busy Thursday and Friday putting the A3 back to stock. ICE all out and back to the stock Bose single DIN single CD unit...

    Watch out folks read everything that they send you, ALL the small print - canceling

    Hmm not very happy at all at the moment, just spoken to Customer Services as I am changing to a STOCK Octavia VRS from a fairly heavily modified A3. First off get a quote for the change of vehicle another £108 more to insure, total working out over £116 quid a year more expensive than Skoda...

    Given current issues - tempted by Vauxhall 0% Finance and lifetime warranty

    Help required, given my current grief with the A3, I have been tempted over to the Vauxhall website. 0% finance on a VXR GTC Astra Coupe with lifetime warranty, now why can't Audi offer me that deal on a new S3 ? GM must have done the sums on the lifetime warranty and it must add up, that I...

    Technical Question regarding BKD boost control and solenoid block (N75)

    Afternoon all Well unfortunately my 2.0TDi BKD under-boost issue that I thought I had completely fixed has reared it's head again. It is a lot better since I replaced a damaged boost o-ring, but it dropped an under boost code yesterday. In my previous testing I have confirmed that the VNT...

    Joining the Variable Geometry Vane Problem Club (over boosting PD140)

    Carried out some diagnostic tests on the car and I am popping over boost DTCs on a logged full throttle run in 3rd gear. So chances are that the vanes are clogged in my Turbo, so I now have a new gasket, downpipe clamp and an Innotec cleaning kit sitting ready. Just need to sort out the ramp...

    Small favour when you have a few minutes - check on your door design

    Following on from my rust thread, could you all do a quick check when you have a few minutes. As I posted in my rust thread, my A3 had a new passenger door last year due to an accident, and it seems to be a modified design as it differs from my original 2005 drivers door. If you could check...

    2.0 TDi BKD Intercooler pipe drivers side - access

    Well it looks like I may have a slight leak of boost, you can feel a slight dip in power at about 2K and you can hear what sounds like a boost leak. Had a quick visual and it looks like it may be the intercooler pipe connection on the drivers side as there is a fair amount of oil mist about that...
