    Disabling Autostop?

    I'm just curious, is the handbrake one of the criteria for the start/stop to engage? If so, could you not pull the wire from the hand brake? Sorry if this is a daft question. Oh wait a lot of you have electronic hand brakes. So this would stop them from working altogether.. Yep a daft question!

    Has anyone improved their door seals?

    Yeah, nope.. Just checked my door sills and they are filthy too.... Seals don't touch the sills at all... Good thing is no contact = no creaking... Lol......

    Has anyone improved their door seals?

    Knowing the quality of seats trim levels, the door is probably sitting too high... What's the seals like along top of the door?

    1.2L v 1.4L TSI (used)

    I love my 2014 1.2 TSI but would never buy one again for 1 reason only.... It cost me 1L of oil every 1200 miles... It's actually within spec according to SEAT manual too.. Oil consumption is appalling.. But not sure if the newer models are a lot better.... As for fuel consumption. I think it's...

    Mk3 2014 Head Unit change.

    You mentioned you are connecting your rca to these wires. Rca is low level speaker input... My kenwood subs have both high level and low level inputs. So connecting to speaker cable I use high level input... Rca needs to come from a dedicated low level rca socket on the back of a stereo. You...

    silica grain in the header tank

    Mmm, when I was reading up on all the G' coolants I read that G12 & G12+ were pink and G12++ & G13 were purple... Could I have had G13 in my system all along? But manual does state it should be purple..!

    I have a 2014 1.2 TSI petrol and use it to and from work, 118 mile round trip on motorway, with 120k on the clock now. Still drives great and am getting mid 60's mpg. I don't scream it on motorway, no point. Its has one cambelt and serpentine belt change along with the usual consumables like...

    silica grain in the header tank

    That's exactly how I change my coolant this time... My work run is 98% motorway and 60miles, so swapped out the coolant in the reservoir at home, then again at work.... Did that for about a week and now I have purple G13 instead of Pink G12..... [emoji1303]

    Any issues to watch out for changing the battery?

    If one was to replace the battery with exactly the same one, I take it no coding would be necessary..? Edit: oh wait just seen... There's a serial number to add... That would more likely be different.

    silica grain in the header tank

    So I had another look at my reservoir bottle and it only has G13 printed on it. No 'Mit Silikat' labelled anywhere. Along with no mention in the manual for needing a silicone bag or changing the fluid at set intervals if you don't have a bag in reservoir. So my point being if I wasn't reading...

    silica grain in the header tank

    That's a fair point..... The g13 I bought said only good for 5 years... So i guess I'll change it then every 2 or 3 years...

    silica grain in the header tank

    So after reading this and another thread regarding silicone bags in the reservoir tank I went and had a look in mine and there was no bag... Now I've had the car nearly 2 years now and I only just realised, [emoji2359], I had the wrong coolant in the system.... Printed on my tank is G13 and the...
