Re: One of my keys has stopped working.

I had a similar problem some years ago on a Passat or Jetta. Re-syncing the key did the trick and the problem never recurred. I also had to replace the button cell batteries in both keys on my previous car (Golf). I had the car for 5 years from new, had to change battery twice in one key and once in...

Re: T Roc Owners Manual and Discover Media PDF

The PDF and hardcopy are pretty much the same in terms of clarity ... poor, but the most recent hardcopy has quite a lot of differences from the previous one (as in the current PDF). I think they only update the hardcopy once a year, and the pdf just follows that (when they get round to it). The mai...

Re: 1.5 EVO - 1st gear kangaroo

As above, stay optimistic and hopefully it will be a very pleasant day come Thursday! Look forward to reading your initial impressions :D Thanks. I will be the one driving it home but my hubby will be the main driver since he works further away and drops me off at work. I will be taking every oppor...

Re: Dipping Mirror in Reverse

Another point worth noting, which may help Hawkeye, is that the dipped mirror can be returned to its normal position by moving the switch away from the L position eg to O or R position (or heated) and it should work regardless of speed or gear selection. Interesting! I'll try that next time mine do...

Still no pdf for newer models. Not sure why VW can’t get them scanned in.
Maybe they are reading all the posts on this and other forums about the errors and omissions in the manuals. That's probably wishful thinking.

Re: 2.0 dsg gearbox hot warning light came on

So many of these systems seem to use various combinations of the same tech, for example 'Coasting' seems to be able to put the car into neutral (even if it doesn't display N) and reduce the engine revs to idle and in some situations even stop the engine. Why can't TJA do the same, and turning off Au...

Re: Infotainment sub-menu

If you decide to update, I suggest you avoid using Discover Care as it is painfully slow and it failed to restore a backup when I tried it.

I have reverted to a manual download and extract to the SD card using 7-Zip, just as I did for 5 years with my Golf and never had any problems.

Re: What's this for ????

I tried putting the document (handbook) wallet into that frame but it was so tight that I was afraid I'd not get it back out, so I just put it back into the glove box. No chance of getting my dashcam battery in it then. Poops. Your best bet might be to remove the VW frame (Hawkeye said it is held b...

Re: Dipping Mirror in Reverse

Are you guys saying there's a heated mirror switch? I assumed it comes on automatically along with the heated windscreen squirters when the temperature drops? Have you found the steering wheel yet? :P :lol: You turn the wing mirror adjuster knob round so it’s pointing at you (there’s a tiny icon sh...
