  • I'm starting to think it might be a connector/bulb socket problem. The misses slammed the boot a few days ago and the warning light came back on, later that day after driving around the local streets which are covered in pot holes, it went out and everything went back to normal. Odd!

    • They were just brought up in the days when you could fix cars yourself.

        Swap the bulb holder over from the fog light to the reverse light and see if the problem follows the bulb holder. The bulb holders should be interchangeable. If the problem follows the bulb holder you have your answer.

        • Ian!!!!

          You'll be pleased to here I had to tighten a retaining nut today when out in the Rolls. The Secondary arm on the wiper had come loose and the wiper ended up all over the place. Two turns of a 3mm allen key and fixed. Major drama.

          DT.

          p.s. the major drama is that you'd expect the nut to have been imperial so I had to get both metric and imperial allen keys out the boot - all that effort

          • That reminds me, I need to clean my wiper blades at some point. When they wipe up, they clear all the muck but as they wipe back down, they smear pretty badly.

            I should really bin it and buy a VAG...

            • Just buy a new pair. Wait until the weekend when GSF will do 55-56% off and then buy a pair. It will only cost about 20 and last a few years. I have never cleaned a pair of wiper blades lol

              • We only used to have to clean our blades when we had to park under a tree every night and they got covered in sap on a daily basis.

                  Update: The problem did follow the bulb holder as verified by his bulb warning in the car, so he just needs to get a new one.

                    • Bulb holder? As in the whole light cluster? Part number should be on it.

                            How about 7, all the way from Latvia? Now you know the part number, there's nothing stopping you from looking. You could try finding a VW breakers, to see if they have one...

                              • I have, they don't actually stock the bulb holders themselves.
