  1. Anyone with Alfa diagnostics?

    That's the exact issue.....electrics! Sent from my Wileyfox Swift using Tapatalk
  2. Bit of a long shot but anyone handy to Carrick/Larne with the Alfa/Fiat diagnostics, think its alfadiag or fiatecusan/multiscan etc. The blue VAG cable does a small amount but it has coloured cables too for other checks. Cheers Sent from my Wileyfox Swift using Tapatalk
  3. Mk3 Toledo help

  4. Aircon regas

    Could anyone recommend where to get aircon regassed, handy to Carrickfergus / Belfast. Saw an old post about a guy in Ballymoney but just a bit too far. I know kwikfit do it in Belfast but never been, so any recommendations appreciated . Sent from my Wileyfox Swift using Tapatalk
  5. Business graphics for van

    Hi folks, Can anyone recommend a company/person for some graphics? Father-in-law is looking some for his van for his business. Likely to be the logo on both sides and some numbers etc for the rear. Handy to Carrickfergus or Belfast areas and nothing mega fancy/expensive. Thanks Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  6. Mk3 Toledo help

    Hi folks, After picking up a mk3 Toledo just wondering if you could help with the following: Should there be a bit of cable or something to pull to release the rear arm rest? Can't seem to get it down. Might be the same in Altea's, Ibiza's etc

  9. Help with a leak on Passat

    I've given it a blast with power washer although not as good as steam clean it did a good job. Will give it time to dry and have another look Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  10. Hi folks, Have a lovely stain on my driveway where I'm assuming oil is leaking from the front end of my car. It's a 2003 Passat tdi. Bit of a could be anywhere leak I'm sure, but any ideas at all where a few main places to check could be. It's not awful but slowly drips down. Stain ??: Seems to be where the drip runs off from: Top view: Cheers Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  11. Hi folks, My sister in law is getting 2 vw splitcreen busses for her wedding this week. As they only have lap belts in the rear how would you carry a child, 6 years old who is normally in a high back booster with 3 point belt. My understanding is a child seat isn't suitable for a lap belt whether it is high back or just the booster. Also is it now law that kids are exempt from using their seat as it's a private hire vehicle so they then must use the adult belt, the lap belt on its own? Sorry if it's not clear but I'm probably going to cause a whole whoha if I say she's not allowed to go in it! Thanks Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  12. Some fault code help

    Cheers for the info, no not bothering me I was just curious as to what they were and if possible would've cleared them Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  13. Some fault code help

    Yeah using vcds lite. If I hit clear results and rescan they come back. Do I need to use clear all dtcs, but it's greyed out and can't click it Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  14. Could anyone offer advice on these faults showing. Its a B5.5 Passat 1.9tdi 130 AVF 6speed. I'm not that technical so plain and simple is appreciated for issue and/or fix. I did have a dead battery a few months back and changed it. Someone mentioned the abs fault is an easy recode with vcds. Thanks Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  15. I like tapatalk as you can have everything in one place. Not just car forums but I have quite a few other forums on tapatalk. Also the user interface is very good. The mobile site here is brilliant and I never have photo issues, but tapatalk would be a welcome addition too
