  1. Unlock car with key blade. where is this on the outside ? Because I’m seeing no key entry on mine. Unless I’m being totally thick. 😩
  2. Interesting, I was told it was because the haldex gets used more it’s creates more gunk from friction etc causing the filter to clog . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Had my Haldex done at 3rd year service at dealers and the gauze filter was virtually clear at 15,000 miles. I think 3 years is fine unless your really putting the haldex under load.
  4. Mines a 2016 manual and you can hear a scraping on full lock both ways, been like it since new . Nothing to worry about .
  5. April 2016 manual 15000 miles from new no mods, just noticed after a long run sitting in neutral a faint rattle from engine which gets louder if you press the clutch pedal half way and disappears when pressed fully home. There’s a lot on the net, but just wondering if this is common on the r manual or needs a visit to the dealer before something goes wrong . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Same insulation , the new one may go the same way, maybe not , it’s above the turbo which gets effing hot. My replacement is still hanging in there, just.
  7. Check if one of the cornering lights has blown, put in race mode, lights on and against a wall turn the wheel to the left or right, if there is no light which comes on in the direction of the wheel turn there’s your problem. Replace both as if one goes the other will not work as well.
  8. 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.

  10. Or a dab of superglue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. 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.
  12. 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 .
  13. 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
  14. Funny thing is they must have prized off without removing the glass as they were untouched .
  15. 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
