Re: Fuel flap latch

Thanks for the resposes, guys, it's comforting to know I'm not alone. What I can't get over is that exactly this issue (and component, as far as I can see) was present on a 2013 Polo. Surely yhey have an ongoing improvement programme?

Fuel flap latch

Is it just me, or does anyone else have trouble with this latch? I usually need to prod it in several different areas several times before it clicks open. I had the same problem on my 2013 Polo, which seemed to have exactly the same component, and in the end, shortly before I got rid of it, it stuck...

Re: Trip reset and clock showing wrong date and time

Have you got it set to get the time off the GPS? It's in the car setup menu but don't think it's the default.

Re: Fuel consumption confusion Ateca 2019?

Over 18 months, I've achieved very similar figures to Chop and Paul. I think they're really good for such a powerful engine. Just one point - if you're idling with the footbrake on, or on Autohold (green light on dash), I'm pretty sure that the DSG fully disengages both clutches. So, as said, the co...

Re: bluetooth problems

This is probably obvious, but have you any other bluetooth device to pair your phone with? That would help show whether it's the phone or the car. Or pair a different phone with the car?

Re: MY20 Spec - Add what you know for sure here

When I bought my car in 2018, there were 2 Satnav variants - normal and super, or some such wording. The main differences in the super one was that it had a hard disk instead of SD card, and also let you have the Nav screen in both places at the same time. I believe the super one is no longer on off...

Re: 4Drive IS permanent AWD

I think I understand what you're saying. I guess you'd need 2 clutches to get 100% at either end. Can't think why you'd want to, either.

Re: Brand new car hit & run (paint repair options)

I've used the Chipex product on my car ( supermarket car park damage), and am pretty pleased with the result. It's not invisible in certain lights, but certainly quite unnoticeable, and the paint colour match is perfect. I think the quality of the repair depends on how much time you're prepared to s...

Well, you get the free-wheeling, but I can't think why anything else should be different.

Re: High pitch

Yes, I've noticed this if for some reason I stay in the car after turning the engine off. It's a quiet, as you say high-pitched whine - definitely not the main cooling fan. It seems to go on for about a minute or so. I've assumed it might be something in thwe aircon system 'winding down', bu that's ...
