  1. Past hour
  2. YouTube? What do you mean? I'm not following how this is a VWROC issue.
  3. I‘d expect the 8 year battery warranty, which is only for high voltage batteries, applies to batteries in hybrid and electric vehicles, GTE, e-golf etc. Ours are 12v batteries so just the normal factory 3 year warranty cover. The VW extended warranty (All Component Cover) does not cover batteries as they are considered to be perishable items. See current extended warranty terms. Previous years are the same.
  4. Hmmm, cheers, do you know how and when that 8 year battery warranty applies? Is that only if you buy an extended warranty? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  5. Today
  6. Deleted as just seen you’ve fixed it!
  7. Glad you got it working [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. All fixed now thanks. And yes guide fully followed
  9. Bumper has MOST DRFINITELY been resprayed... Get it redone by a quality paint shop and then you won't have to worry about it doing that again. Better yet get it covered in PPF after the quality respray. Josh Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  10. Yes provided it’s not exceeded a certain mileage. Have a look in this link and very last paragraph. https://www.volkswagen.co.uk/owners/my-car/warranties/new-car-terms
  11. Glad to hear both rattles (the original and the other one) have been resolved (both well known culprits). It’s a shame the dealer has been disappointing and disingenuous, unfortunately not a rare occurrence, but at least you got a service plan out of it. Fingers crossed you only have cabin silence now, well apart from the car noises you do want to hear.
  12. I'm getting my done in Feb on a GPF golf R. Would be great to hear from anyone on here who has had any work done on their R! Their facebook page seems to be mainly BMW's but have seen a few R's done and sound good!
  13. I've had both replaced and didn't have any experiences as you mention I would go back and tell them it's not right Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. Is standard warranty 3 years on batteries then? Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  15. Hi guys , I have a 2015 golf r and I had a major service at VW and they told me I was leaking coolant and showed me a video of it. so recently (2 days ago) I had the water pump and thermostat housing replaced and I’ve drove it a little since and the coolant is still going down even though it shouldn’t be. is this normal, is it filling itself back up or should I be taking it back to the garage that fixed it for me, I also feel like I can smell coolant dropping onto something hot causing a burning smell. Any help would be fantastic!
  16. This thread is very timely, because, having become used to checking the SOC by holding down the trip reset button on my GTI, I became frustrated with repeated ---% showing on my R, which has had a replacement battery. I've bought, though not yet installed, a CTEK "traffic light" device which is attached to the battery terminals, and also acts as a socket to connect my CTEK battery conditioner. During the early months of this year, in lockdown, I was hardly using my GTI, and had to use the conditioner regularly. My purchase of the R at the end of July coincided with the advent of "the new normal", and I was driving more, so the battery was charging while I was driving. It's surprising how quickly a battery loses charge when the car is sitting idle for a few days, and I was concerned that I had no convenient way to monitor the SOC. A friend and neighbour, who owned a Range Rover and therefore was no stranger to electrical gremlins and flat batteries had the CTEK device fitted, so I bought one from Amazon. My neighbour solved his problem by selling the Range Rover.
  17. Will do, as I say I have bought a few bits of software from him and he has helped me set them up via email so will be buying one of these even though I might not even use it, got to support the little guys [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk

    They fixed it! It was the rear seats being a bit loose and rattling. However they claim they fitted a new trim but the first thing I checked was that fitting and they had taped it up. Unfortunately on the way home there was a new rattle. I did some digging on these forums and located it to the sunvisor, so thats an easy fix and I'm now a happy R owner! Really disappointed with Parkway Derby in all honesty. Apart from my dealer and her manager rectifying the problem, the pre sale check and test drive weren't conducted properly if at all which is what annoyed me the most given that I live in London. Had it been done, they would have hears the rattle and given me a heads up that they need to rectify it. The car wasn't as clean as a whistle as you'd expect, the interior also could have been better. I got a 3 year service package out of them for my inconvenience and travel time and they supplied me with a courtesy car while they fixed the issue. It's a shame they had to lie and say they fitted new trims, the dealer and manager both had different answers for what was wrong! Looking forward to enjoying it now!
  20. I had a message from the developer of AA Gateway which is an app that adds AA wired or wireless to any tablet, which I use in our Suzuki Swift. The guy is now developing a small USB device that will allow wireless from any Android phone running I think 9 upwards. It will be much smaller than in the pic which was just a prototype and will cost around half the price of the CarPlay devices hopefully and as he is in Europe shipping shouldn't be too bad either.His software version works really well and I also use his software to connect my phone to the R head unit for full mirroring, he is a clever guy so I will most likely get one of these once he has them available https://www.google.com/amp/s/9to5google.com/2020/09/07/android-auto-wireless-dongle-project/amp/ [emoji106] Sent from my VOG-L09 using Tapatalk
  21. Who coded it? Did you follow this guide?
  22. As Len (Dollyman) says, if the car (the OPs) is a 2017 car then it might still be in factory warranty period and that might cover a new battery provided the battery test (an overnight one) shows its kaput. A few of us on here have had our batteries fail within the warranty period and replaced under warranty, myself included when my battery kept losing charge at 30 months (17k miles). Test showed bad cell and so it was replaced under warranty. Worth @Bushido checking.
  23. Never checked that tbh, but can't imagine there would be... At least I've peace of mind now for the next 4.5 years... Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  24. If 2017 is there still some warranty left?
  25. My 2016 R, less than 35k miles started doing this a few months ago! Yes, you can get some charge back in it after a few long drives, but, and IMHO unless you're using the car on a regular basis, it will probably continue happening over and over again!! I eventually bit the bullet after twice asking my neighbour to start the engine for me with jump leads lol, and paid to have a new one, coded etc, 5 year warranty, best thing I could have done!! Cost me £180 I think.. Sent from my SM-G973F using Tapatalk
  26. I'm thinking just under use, nothing left on or plugged in overnight.
