    Battery life Golf R

    Mine has finally given up after nearly 3 years from new. My question is - is it best to replace with a new one or get it charged up and risk it losing its charge again . I must admit I’ve been doing only short jaunts last few months . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    It’s who your with really. There’re some good main dealers as there are poor indies. Ive stuck with my main dealer who I purchased the car from and have no complaints yet 😁.

    Rear tailgate led lights - how to change?

    Take to an electrical motor factor - that’s most probably a wiring issue.
  4. Mine don’t cut in half the time saying voltage too high. Probably the speed detector and cam affecting voltage

    Squeaky Clutch Pedal

    Got a can of silicon spray with the straw adaptor, get your head down in the footwell and spray up into the clutch pedal the bits you can see. Also I found wearing a particular shoe caused a squeak from the sole 😂
  6. Just wondering as there seem to be a number of faults and build quality mentioned on here regarding the 7.5. Mine is a 7 , 3 years nearly and no issues, except under bonnet insulation , replaced.

    On the rattle, make sure all the bits are clipped together on the rear view mirror. Mine was rattling and I pushed and clipped the two parts together and they became firm, although looking at it you would not see any dicernable issue.

    What Warranty claims have you made?

    Did they sort out the rattle ? This is quite a common theme, it’s the cover above the fuel lines that come into the engine bay below the master break cylinder. Usually a buzz that comes and goes . See pic, pack with foam or something , the white in the pic is some cotton wool pads slid up to where you see it.
  12. My stop start never really works properley unless I take it for a good blast . Too many short journeys from me and it always says power consumption too high. So yes give it some more miles .
