MK7 Boot Rattle

23 September 2009 - 08:18 AM

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this? Not a massive problem to be honest as most of the time I drive round listening to music, but have noticed that on warm sunny days the car developes a rattle/slight buzz from the boot area.

I know it's not the rear seats and not the parcel shelf either and I think it may be coming from within the locking mechnaism area (the plastic housing on the inside of the tailgate which houses the lock,wiper motor etc) but if it's only occuring when it gets warm it must be something in direct sunlight but I just can't figure it out!

Anyone else had this, or better, anyone had and resolved it?!

Much appreciated guys! By the way I'm still loving the car and wouldn't swap it for anything!

Brakes Smell after journeys

15 September 2009 - 08:14 PM

evening all, quick question, not sure if this is just the brakes still bedding in or whatever, but I notice after my normal journeys, commuting etc, that as I step out of the car I sometimes get a whiff of the brakes, similar to when you've been driving really hard - not as bad as that but still noticable. Is this normal? Just the brakes bedding in?

Paint Coming off Locking Wheel Nuts?

10 September 2009 - 09:47 AM

Noticed after I had cleaned my car the other day that on a couple of my alloys the paint was coming off the locking wheel nut (will put a pic up in a bit) and it was now looking more the colour of the alloy wheel than the colour of the other wheel nuts - not a big problem really but has anyone else had this?

Automatic Climate Control (EATC) and Air Con

05 September 2009 - 07:31 PM


quick question, on MK7's with EATC, if you set the temperature to say, 16C, the air con comes on automatically as well.

If you are then to swithc off the air con, the EATC continues to stay on, but is it still cooling to the original 16C? ie does it NEED the air con to function correctly?

...does that make any sense?!
