  1. Can anyone switch on rear lights with DRL's on 2014 Octavia for beer tokens in Norfolk/Suffolk?

  3. Xenon lights - Ah ok, well as much as I like the car, that's a little pricey! ACC - Did you already have the radar fitted before you started? LED's - understand the LED headlights would be illegal but I've bought & fitted genuine Skoda LED rear lights. Noticed its an optional extra. Columbus satnav - I only wanted this as I find the Armundsen screen a little small. Useful info cheers Bret
  4. I also wanted a full size spare wheel as I drove to Italy a few weeks after buying my 2014 Octavia. However, Skoda wanted £130! So went looking online found a brand new black steel rim for £32 & had a £30 tyre put on it. Pretty sure the rim spec (offset etc) will be the same. Do you want the details?
  5. Ah fair enough. Yeah I would like them as well but I'm guessing it they would be an expensive upgrade?
  6. I would like & would be very interested to find out what's involved/cost for: - Bi-xenon headlamps - Front parking sensors linked into Amundsen as OEM - Radar adaptive cruise control - All bulbs replaced with LED bulbs, starting with the puddle/mirror lights! - Amundsen unit replaced with the Columbus system
  7. LED bulb replacements

    Hi Guys, As some have mentioned, the exterior mirror/puddle lights are pretty poor. Has anyone actually replaced them? If so how easy to change without breaking the mirror glass? Ive seen lots of different sized LED 501's, which LED's are actually white, not blue/purple, but also fit the housing? Also, are the puddle lights monitored by the cars bulb blown system? What bulbs has anyone used? Thanks, Dan
  8. I've got the front radar option on my car, did I read somewhere that it might be possible to tweak the cruise control to 'adaptive' cruise control?
  9. Have you done the front parking sensors yet?
  10. Aircon drain pipe - mk1 octavia

    Cheers wino. Think I've found it. Access is.......tricky & cannot get the cover off. However, I did clear some debris in the bulkhead area. I now have aircon drips on the floor. I've also checked the drain pipe from the inside & couldn't find any leaks there. But there are drips appearing in the drivers foot well. This only occurs when aircon is used. Any ideas anyone?
  11. Hi Guys, Can anyone tell, or show me with pics, the location for the air con drain hole on mk1 octavia? I've run the air con to try & find it but no drips or puddle ever appears underneath but does inside the car. Thanks, Dan

  13. Cheers guys all really useful stuff. Lots of rain last night & with it now leaking on both sides its becoming much more serious. After a bit of detective work I managed to find the rear drain holes & they appeared to be fine. So we reckon that its either the rubber pipe '13' on the diagram or the plastic hose that the rubber pipe connects too? Really hoping its not the plastic hose as there doesn't appear to be a part number for that. Just looking up youtube vids on how to remove the headlining.
  14. Cheers nige8021! What's your understanding of 'behind the shock absorber cover'? Does the shock/inner wheel arch plastic/mud flap need removing? Also, I can't quite make out exactly where I would pour water in from the top, in order to check its clear. Any ideas? Cheers, Dan
