Re: 66 plate Ateca Xcellence - disable keyless entry?

Yes Faraday pouches work. I got mine from a local PC neighbourhood watch officer.
Yes the away you describe does work. To test it just try and unlock the car by gripping the door handle BEFORE you walk away.
Simple but me methinks obvious.

Re: space saver

Yes there is big difference in the pressures. due to the space saver being a thinnish tyre and needs the pressure to support the load.

Re: Ateca Key just stopped Working

Seems I was a lucky one. stopped working with no warning. Changed the battery for a proper branded one, heart in mouth pressed the button. Never been so relived to unlock a car with a remote in my life.

Re: Ateca Xcellence full leather interior for sale

I think Seats definition of the word leather is a little different to what is universally accepted throughout the rest of the world.
