  1. My wifes B-Max did this, it was updated and the difference was instantly noticeable.
  2. If your car has a chrome strip on the front of the bonnet it's a Mk2.5 if it doesn't it's a Mk2, as for the springs there's a lot out there so maybe someone with experience of them can help.
  3. Good luck mate.
  4. The "Earphone type socket" is most likely an auxiliary input for your stereo to plug in MP3 players or phones . Does your stereo have an aux button?
  5. On most cars the matrix is a royal pain to get to. It's usually right up behind the dash.
  6. Heater matrix or one of the pipes running to it I would guess as that is the only way for coolant to get into the cabin I believe. Check under your carpets to check if they are wet.
  7. Most services don't cover the fuel filter, that's where I would start.
  8. Standard is normal steering, Comfort makes it a little lighter and Sport makes it a little heavier.
  9. I had them fitted to my Mk1.5 for two years before I sold it and at their lowest setting they were a bit harsh but when set a little higher I thought they were pretty good. I also read good and bad reviews on them but took the risk and I didn't regret it.
  10. Hi, I had exactly the same issue with my 2007 2.0 TDCi, I changed the DPF for a new one bought on ebay refilled the pat fluid and had the counter for the additive reset and it was still holding back though the light was off. It turned out that the fuel filter was needing changed so I did that and haven't had any issues since. I just drove to Ireland and back and the car ran perfectly. The DPF has a life of approx. 80,000 miles and will need changed after this as regenerating it is temporary or sometimes impossible due to the soot build-up, The DPF I bought cost £180 and was well worth it. It also wont regenerate unless it has 20 litres of fuel in the tank.
  11. Can't help on the Electrical issues but the rough idle my be down to needing to change the fuel or air filters.
