Re: Condensation / Misting of headlights

Perfectly normal. Mine occasionally does weather dependant. It does quickly go in use. It does cover it in the manual, see introduction section under lights and visibility.

Re: MY 19 Alarm B pillar missing?

Should of said, I have a MY 2018 Kodiaq which doesn’t have the button. Amusingly the salesman on handover tried to show me the B pillar button, I already knew how to do it as I’d downloaded the manual and read it. I let him flounder for a while and then put him out of his misery! Bit cruel really.

Re: MY 19 Alarm B pillar missing?

With the key fob lock it twice within 2 seconds. It isn’t brilliant clear in the manual but is covered under ‘Safelock’. As a dog owner I can confirm it dies work.

Re: Help, I've Bought A Fridge

Mine works fine. Just place your palm over the outside of either drivers or passengers door handle as you leave it and it should lock every time. Visible signs are indicators flash and mirrors fold in. Not sure what model you have so yours may not have folding mirrors. One tip if you wash the car yo...

Re: Do need skoda connect?

I have just come to the end of my free year and have for the moment chosen not to renew. Infotainment Online is currently £45pa and Care Connect is £36pa. I did however email Skoda last week pointing out that in my opinion it was too expensive for what are nice to haves. I was very pleased that I di...

Re: Caravan Towing with a Kodiaq

Just completed our first towing trip from South Yorkshire to Dorset and found our 190 4x4 brilliant. The caravan has an mtplm of 1500kg so it would be round about the 85% guideline which I like to stick to despite 22 years experience. I get the nose weight to 95kg which again is within the 5 to 7 % ...

Re: First and hopefully only supermarket ding

I always reverse into a parking space except at supermarkets where you need access to the boot. I also never park next to a car who has reversed in for the very reason they might scrape bags down the side of your car or even worse try to push the trolley between or leave it at the front while unload...

Re: Best optional extra? Best accessory?

For me, the camera is the best bit of the car! My sales person told me I'd be wasting my money on the reversing camera. It works as intended, but because it does not flip away when not in reverse the lens gets muddied. It sounds like this might have been an exaggeration on his part going on what I ...

Re: New Tyre

Thanks. I can’t find it on Pirelli’s website but I’ve just found mention as you say above on a Scirocco forum and a twitter feed from Hometyre. As it’s a safety issue I may just bite the bullet and go for the new tyre which they will have tomorrow. Not really a safety issue when there's a British S...

Re: New Tyre

I've just had exactly the same issue with a Scorpion Verde. Local fitted said no repair, new tyre needed... NOT TRUE! I found a piece on Pirelli's website saying they could be repaired. Ymthr sealant layer needs to be scraped away revealing the normal carcass underneath and then a standard repair i...
