  1. MK3.5 Touch Radio Issue

    Hi, I have the same navigation and dont have this issue, try disconnecting the battery so everything is dead and reconnect after 10 minutes. But I assume that the garage may have already done this.
  2. Mk3.5 Sideskirts

    Hi, Are the mk3.5 sideskirts easy to take off and fit new ones? I would like to put Zetec S ones on if it's easy to do. I'm assuming that the mk3 is the same so if anyone has experience of that would be useful too. Thanks, suddste
  3. Show Us Your Mk3.5!

    Roper, How did you get that S badge on the front grill? Is there a special mount for it?

    Hi, Many thanks!
  5. Can I Merge My Accounts Together

    Hi, Do I wait for an admin to come across this thread or do I PM them?
  6. Can I Merge My Accounts Together

    Surely the forum software would have an option to!?
  7. Cold Start Oil Light Stays On For A While

    Okay this hasnt worked either. What could it be? I have no idea what it could be anymore!
  8. Cold Start Oil Light Stays On For A While

    Have narrowed it down to it probably being the anti drain back valve; I found a similar pic here: It's the hole at the bottom where the oil filter slots in. I don't think I seated it properly so it allowed oil to drain back to the sump which makes sense when cold starting the car the oil has to be pumped round again! I've seated the oil filter properly (I hope) this time and I guess I will find out after a cold start tomorrow morning if this worked.
  9. Hi, Just wondering if it's possible to merge my JohnS account with account "suddste" so my suddste account is the main one? You will see that the IP address is the same used for both accounts for verification purposes. I wanted to be anonymous hence using the JohnS account but I don't mind anymore. Thanks, suddste
