Re: Amber indicator tint

You have two options 1. Spray tint them
2. Put tint film on them

Re: VW Polo 3 (6n2) - Fault: 17559

Check the lambda probe multiplug. Very common for the wiring to break. It is the one connected to exhaust manifold. The multi plug connector is in a housing by the gearbox

Re: Lowering without springs

Hi bud the shortened shocks need to go with the lowering springs. If you fit the shortened shocks to original springs then the shocks will fail due to the size of the spring being too long for the piston in the shock absorbers

Re: Need help to find cause of my fan turning CRAZY

Fan control units go faulty on them. They can crack and let moisture in causing havoc with electrics

Re: ABS not working on 1 wheel

Sounds about right mate. Seem to remember there was a thread about it and am sure that it had a fix

Re: tick over

Looks like you may need a dpf. I have had this on a caddy. Turbo had previously given up and coated dpf filter with oil meaning it could not clear properly.

Re: tick over

Take it for a spin then just park up and let it idle. Sounds like it is trying to clean itself. READ OWNER MANUAL ABOUT DPF. The idle will come down when cleaned.

Re: ABS not working on 1 wheel

I would check for any codes first.cheapest option would be to change sensors first but be warned the absence unit is very common for failing. Usually gives a warning light just cannot for the life of me remember which wheel it says is faulty.

Re: Clutch cable problem

The pedal box is very common on them for cracking and eventually bite is on the floor. But I would get a new proper cable first and try that

Re: Horn blows fuse 47 every time

Right I have had a quick.look at wiring diagram. Remove the horn relay then check that you have the lives to the relay. If lives are present then would suggest remove air bag and check wiring in steering wheel. The horn plate is part of the slip ring and you should have a contact from rear of steeri...
