reverse switch/temp sensor

Skoda Fabia I Today, 14:02
Hi new to the site, picked up an 02 fabia 1.4mpi, the EPC light has come on which I'm guessing is a faulty temp sensor as the gauge is a bit all over the place..? If it is this will the EPC light go out automatically once replaced or will it still have to be cancelled out by vagcom/vcds etc? sorr...

Skoda Fabia II Today, 13:48
Has anyone seen or published a guide on padding out rattling door cards? Are they easy to get off and put back on? My passenger door card rattles as soon as I'm not on a smooth surface so 99% of the time on our roads. The dealer have been completely useless at rectifying this... I've spoken to th...

Wing Mirror Loose

Skoda Octavia II (2004 - 2013) Today, 13:06

Beeps and warning light for no reason - what gives?

Skoda Fabia I Today, 12:26
I pulled out of my street this morning & all of a sudden the dash let out three long evenly spaced apart beeps (the same one you get when low on Diesel or screen wash) & the hand brake warning light flashed up on the dash at the same time as the beeps. After that, the car seemed fine...

Combi LED number plate light ...

Skoda Superb II Today, 12:23
Fitted these yesterday .. Amazingly bright white light, totally transforms the look of the rear. They'll also make the car much more visible from behind at night. One thing I found was the resistors rattled around a bit inside the tailgate so I stuck a double sided sticky pad (about 3/4" square)...
