  1. Just checked mine and the fronts have almost no rust at all but the rears have probably 25% covering of light rust. I'm not too impressed by the dust/splash covers on the back brakes which are pretty rusty. (3.5 year old car).
  2. I'm using a 5G0 827 469 E which works on MIB2 discover media and discover pro. I believe the estate is 5G9 827 469 F.
  3. I've had the red warning triangle on a few occasions but no noticeable braking. Is autonomous emergency braking (AEB) standard on R's or do you need the front camera in the windscreen?
  4. The paint code on the rear diffuser is 041. I presume this is the same gloss black as the mirror caps??
  5. Shame really because most OBD dongles have a default password of 0000 or 1234 whereas this one has a much more secure password 😞 I was hoping to use it with Torque Pro through Android Auto to show it on my screen.
  6. I was charged £5. What a swizz. Can't even get it to work with Torque Pro app.
  7. Looks very much like a duff front centre left parking sensor.
  8. 0010 is not the error code, it is a flag showing a fault is present. 0000 no fault, 0100 module can't be reached etc. The rest of the scan should show you the fault code
  9. Some retrofits use the reversing light to trigger the camera. Worth checking the reversing lights are working????
  10. I repaired the leaky speakers myself. I will probably replace the seals at some point but it is not a priority.
  11. I had that on mine. The rubber seals have metal in them to stiffen them and this rusts. The reason my seals rusted was the door speaker seals were leaking and the water pools in the seals. Also makes the carpet damp leading to lots of condensation.
  12. With clogging that bad I can't see that the haldex would be operating properly. I believe the pump is used to provide hydraulic pressure to engage the haldex 'clutch'. In order to provide the pressure the pump would be working very hard. Before I cleaned mine I used VCDS to monitor my pump as I reversed off the drive and back on again. I also did a similar manoeuvre after cleaning. I wished I'd done a more scientific comparison but it was Christmas an time was bit tight. I think it shows the response of the haldex after cleaning has improved. Also the amount of gunk in mine was no where near yours. Note: VCDS uses the term "blockage" which appears to represent level of engagement of the haldex??
  13. Using VCDS I monitored my haldex and it appears to engage briefly when I drive away and also when reversing even in the dry.
  14. Bosch A282H https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0042ETBEQ/ref=pe_3187911_185740111_TE_item Discussion on here:
  15. Thanks. Took the opportunity to get the rear wiper blade for £4.79 as well.
