Topics I've Started

Bumper Removal

18 August 2015 - 09:53 AM

Could anyone advice on how exatcly to remove a mk4 front bumper please.

Finally got one but for the new bumper to go on the old one needs to come off.

Also, what is the best adhesive foam tape around that will hold on a front lip, rather than sealemt etc

Tyre Monitor Malfunction

03 July 2015 - 05:34 PM

The other day a warning message pinged up on convers+ saying Tyre monitor malfunction. The tyre pressures still seem to be reading correctly but I can not get rid of the message and it's getting annoying bonging up eveytime I get in the car.

Probably a silly question but where exactly is the tyre monitor so that I can investigate?

What could I do in terms of rectifying it?

Engine Light Is On. Advice?

02 July 2015 - 06:00 AM

Driving to work last night in the silly heat, few minutes from destination and I notice the EML ping up

 

Have started the car a few times since but it isn't clearing so something is being a mischeif

 

Could it just be something related to the extreme weather playing up a sensor or could it be something more severe?

 

 

I'm shortly gonna hook the car up the the laptop and do a forscan to see if there are any codes but is there any common problems I should look out for?

 

Car is a 2.2tdci mk4 titanium x sport 78k on clock and on a 58 plate


Curious Keyfree Question

26 May 2015 - 07:47 AM

My mk4 mondeo has keyless entry/start so therefor my key doesnt need to leave my pocket to start and drive the car.

I can also start the car, get out of the car and walk a distance away with the key still in my pocket and the engine still running.


My question is, if I was to get out the car, engine running, and some toe ragg jumped in my car and drove off, how far would they get?

Would they be able to freely drive off and I wouldn't see my car again?

Or would what I would hope would happen and the car would detect the key was not actually inside of it and some how shut itself down after a certain distance so I could run after the toe ragg and drag him out?

Mk4 Lower Grill Parking Sensor

15 May 2015 - 01:36 AM

Can anyone advise on how to purchase one of the housing for the front parking sensors that slots in the grill mesh

Also advise on whether it comes with the hole pre drilled or if it is possible to get hold of one undrilled

I've fitted my front facing camera, update on it to follow tomorrow, but I would like to create a housing for it so that it blends in with the sensors and looks OEM

Ideally I'd like one of the sensor housings that I could drill my own hole in the middle of, apposed to having sthe hole to the side

If its not possible to get one I may have to look into creating one
