Re: Insurance with XLR

I've no experience of throttle boxes, is that the same as a pedal box ?

Re: Rear Disks and Pada

Can you switch on the ignition without starting the engine with a DSG box? Yes. If I press the ignition button and my foot is not on the brake pedal, the ignition is switched on.

Re: Rear Disks and Pada

If wishing to attempt replacing the rear pads yourself, you would require to have VCDS to release the handbrake and then reset when new pads are fitted. Currently the cheapest version of VCDS is around £225 and although it is a great diagnostic tool and has many uses, to buy it to change brake pads...

Re: Hygiene Charge at Dealers

Hi. I have booked mine in at the Weston dealer. They have moved into the VW dealership on the Worle road so I assume all the work will be carried out in the VW workshop.
