Streaky/blank Central Display

30 March 2013 - 08:16 PM

The centre display (the one with the Odometer/messages) on my recently purchased s/h S-Max sometimes gets vertical streaks which seem to disappear as the car warms up. One particularly cold morning it was completely blank for a while.


Does it need replacement and if so is this a possible DIY job?




Changing Speaker In Rear Door

30 March 2013 - 08:11 PM

I have a blown speaker on my recently purchased s/h S-Max

It's in the nearside rear door.

The first question is, how easy is the replacement? Getting door panels off previous VWs etc hasn't filled me with enthusiasm for the job.


The second question is where do I go to get a decent one, hopefully an upgrade to the standard unit? I notice people selling them on ebay but they seem to use a retrofit 'adaptor pod'. Is this the way to go or can I do better for the £40 with a Ford part?




Where Is Rear Fusebox!

30 March 2013 - 08:04 PM

I'm getting the 'Bonnet Open' message when it isn't and from a bit of research realise I may have to pull the alarm horn fuse soon only I can't find the fusebox. The manual doesn't show the location and opening panels in the boot has so far not helped.


Where is it please? Thanks.
