  1. Haldex filter clean is on the VW dealer computer and comes in at 0.8 hours of labour cost, although you have to ask. Had mine done at 3 years with the Haldex oil change and the filter was clear after 14,000 miles, but at least I now know the state of it. Should be done as a matter of fact at oil change.

  3. Or a dab of superglue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Got the Chinese black caps 😗 they fit and are not bad considering , but the drivers side can be pulled off quit easily. The near side mirror housing you can see the unbroken lug which is intact.
  5. The lug which is broken is on the left hand side near the top on the plastic piece that attaches to the metal part . It’s that piece that secures the cap properly with the unit. I’ve a sneaky suspicion it’s integral with the metal part. It’s not very clear on that picture .
  6. Further update the driver side one has a broken plastic tab, so the replacement doesn’t sit tight. Can the mirror section which has the tab on it be replaced or is it a complete new wing mirror , motor et all. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Funny thing is they must have prized off without removing the glass as they were untouched .
  8. Well after 3 years ownership never having nothing stolen, come out to walk the dog tonight and boom, both deep black pearl caps on door mirrors gone. Any recommended sites on e bay that do a reasonable copy, don’t really fancy getting 2 originals made up. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Battery dead

    Halfords 96 size, own label battery for R is the Yuasa AGM brand. They also do a Yuasa stop start AGM next size down for £115, which fits in the battery bay and is perfectly adequate.
  10. Did mine 3 years ago , I think black hubs look great and put more emphasis on the prets . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Get wheels off and paint , hammerite high heat paint is good . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Looks like there is no top coat in that area. If so then then the paint would come off pretty quickly . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Looks like inflicted damage to me. Is that new or 2nd hand car ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Mine is coming up for its 3rd year service, and my VW dealer did not know that this was an option as well as the oil change. I mentioned this would be prudent if the oil was being changed. After getting a tech involved, the removal of the pump is on the VW system and is designated as 0.8 hours labour. So they ( dealers ) can do this job if you persevere.
  15. You’ve created a smooth surface so the glass has no contaminates on it to grip the rubber,hence the creaking . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
