  1. New Air con pump faulty after 7 months, clutch not engaging diagnosed, now started making the infamous noise, they are changing the pump under warranty but getting a different make, anyone know of any good makes.

  2. Had the same Letter 2 weeks ago, not booked it in yet, hope it doesn't need a new module. Hope yours is sorted soon.
  3. No not a fridgie, did not do it myself, done at local vag independent. Given a link, searched airconparts .co.uk caps only 40 odd pence but £5 p&p.
  4. Just had a reply on another thread that the skoda part no are 357820809B and 357820809C.
  5. Renewed a.c. compressor, evacuated and re-charged gas, caps were missing beforehand, quoted £4.35 each for high and low pressure caps, sounded expensive to me, so trying to find out the size so I can buy off e-bay, they look like push on fit, not screw fit and can come in 3 different sizes.
  6. Does anybody know the make of the air con service valves on a '09 VRS Tdi, and what size caps I would need for the high and low ports.
  7. It has been regased, still not cold. It is a 59-2009 model it has no econ button on climatic control ,it has Auto, AC, Dual and Off buttons, dual dial temp controls with push button heated front seats set in dials.
  8. Octy VRS 59 plate, Air con seems to be working fine but no cold air, compressor centre spindle does spin but I did not hear the fans come on today, checked and they do not come on when pressing the Auto Button. The self diagnostic everyone mentions says to press econ button with aircon ,I don,t have an econ button on my version can I do something else. Any help would be appreciated.Thanks.
  9. Scan revealed faulty sensor on rear wheel this was changed but warning light still failed to go out, Skoda then went looking for wiring fault, eventually traced to main loom where a broken wire was found, very expensive fix as this took some time. Is it normal for wires to break in the main loom or can they heat up and snap ?.
  10. I have just bought a new battery, do you need to plug in auxilliary power to save radio, maxidot settings etc. or are the settings saved when I swap them over.
