Faults solved PUT HERE>

Post by romanv » Sat Jun 24, 2017 1:38 pm

Please put an information about your successfully solved faults, including a description how it was solved.

I know there is a post about faults but usually solutions for that faults are practically lost in such posts. At the begining of fault post there is a description of the fault, followed by many many posts that try to help, criticise or cheer up but the conclusion (solution) is hidden somewhere. Use this post for short reportings.


PROBLEM: Handles are creaking.
REPORTED TO SKODA: Week 26 (2017)
SOLVED BY SKODA: Week 32 (2017)
SOLUTION: Skoda has put some more glue.

Skoda have put additional padding and glue to creaking door handles and dash rattles.

Removed and refitted new exterior trim due to initial ill fitting.

Replaced juddering wipers.

There is still a problem list that needs sorting out with a 3rd trip back to the workshop once parts have arrived.
Driving since May 2017 a 1.4TSI 2WD DSG Edition in Petrol Blue. Car finally sorted after 9 trips to workshop. Currently running on "winter boots".

Oh dear, how very disappointing.
At least my creaking door pulls aren't getting any worse and the electrical gremlins seem to be sorted.
I hope you get everything put right soon.
Have you had a whinge to Skoda Management in Leeds?

Clunking noise on first pull away

Post by Simon341 » Tue Oct 24, 2017 1:49 pm

I have a 6 week old Kodiaq 4x4 2 litre Tdi DSG with 800 miles on the clock. Very happy with the car apart from one issue. After initially starting and pulling away with any degree of lock on the wheel there's an audible clunk from the front nearside area which can also be felt through the steering wheel. Thereafter the car drives perfectly with no repeat of the noise whilst driving and taking corners. The best way to describe the noise is that it reminds me of a cracked or broken coil spring which my Kodiaq most definitely isn't suffering with. The noise occurs after the brakes disengage and when the car is on a smooth surface. It's booked into my local dealership later this week, but wondered if anyone else has experienced similar?

Update from garage inspection: new 'top mount' ordered due to 'sticking' spring release? Not sure what that means but covered under warranty and a simple fix apparently.

My MY18 had Traffic Jam Assist disabled (like many others I've noticed around here), however I quoted the field service campaign that someone mentioned in another thread (viewtopic.php?f=8&t=954) and they sorted it no problem. Now keeps the lane assist icon green under 60kph with ACC enabled.
