Re: Getting a tyre repaired at a tyre repair shop after using tyre sealant

I don't know if it depends on the type of the sealant? There are two types; one is sort of foam that is sprayed out of an aerosol can, the other one is like latex that is poured into the tyre after removing the valve. VW group uses the latter, at least my previous Skoda had a bottle of that one.

Re: Is the Ateca range fitted with Soundaktor feature??

I think VW group uses Soundaktor only on the sporty models, like Golf GTI etc. So for the Ateca range, I would guess you could get it with the Cupra, perhaps.

Re: Steep hill starts using electronic parking brake

Is "hill assist" different to autohold "(A)" then? I assumed you meant the autohold that every model has?? If it is, can't see the point in having a secondary hill assist system, if it's got autohold anyway! I only have autohold (A) and in mine you can rev the Hell out of it, but it won't move till...

Re: coolant level and coolant temperature?

The coolant temperature reaches 90 degrees and levels out there. That's how it has worked on all VW group cars for ages. There is a software filtering or "dampening" on the temperature gauge, it shows 90 degrees when the temperature is roughly between 75 and 105 degrees. The oil temperature gauge, ...

Re: Keyless system and ignition

When the ignition is on how do I disable the lights? The switch is set to off I’m sure. Thanks I think there is no way to do that, EU regulation requires DRLs to be on. Which is more relaxed requirement than we used to have here in Finland. Before EU DRL regulation, we were required to keep the hea...

Re: Seat Ateca Xellence 1.4 TSI 150 HP DSG S&S

Does you car have a rain sensor? (I guess it has, I think all Atecas have it.) Try leaving the sunroof open, and throw a glassfull of water onto the windscreen over the rain sensor and see what happens. Some VW group cars have had this function for ages; automatic sunroof closing when rain is detect...

Re: Start/Stop Stops Working - Engine Must Be Running

So why not just drive normally, and if the DPF light goes on, THEN drive the uninterrupted regen cycle. Well, only because you can't predict when the light will come on, and then it may not be convenient to go for a decent run. It needs a good run too, not just the normal active regen journey. I su...

Re: Start/Stop Stops Working - Engine Must Be Running

Ideally don't stop a regen. VAG don't put any indication it's in progress as they don't want people driving un-necessarily. Regen will restart next time conditions are right - in our Tiguan that can be as soon as 3 miles from a cold start but if you use the car for short journeys you don't want to ...

Re: Android Auto/Mirror Link

^ I think you can use the Google Play Music app to listen to the local music. There should be a setting called "Downloaded only" somewhere in the menus, check that and it should play only from your downloaded media files. Also, there are other Android Auto compatible players, that can play local fil...

Re: Start/Stop Stops Working - Engine Must Be Running

Out of interest, I've only done 1800 miles. Would it regenerate in that time? My XF would go 000s of miles between regeneration. The maximum time between regeneration used to be around 500 miles in the older VW group diesels. Nowadays, with all the SCR and other stuff added, I'm not sure what's the...
