Re: Climatic HAVC Error (J519)

It just seems a bit silly that "J519" is being mentioned/reported by the HVAC controller, I would have thought that it would have reported an issue with the humidity sensor, unless VW Group do not have a separate code for that as I think that normally that sensor was only fitted to "higher" VW Group...

Re: NSFW top mount bearing

It seems like there are and have been for a long time, lots of complaints about rear suspension noises on MK7 Golfs, my mate bought a slightly used T-Roc recently and it certainly has a few "stupid" knocking/rattling noises from the front end, they have moved across from running old SAABs so they, o...

Re: Bonnet Insulation

I'd not think that that will work for you, if your local VW importer, and there will be one and not necessary VW AG or VW ZA, deemed that not fitting that was important to them to include in initial factory build, then you will need to pay for it, but maybe you need to check up on what VW deems to c...

Re: Climatic HAVC Error (J519)

Sorry, I meant to add that I don't know why that fault would appear on the HVAC unit and be related to the BCM, ie circuit reference J519. Dates associated with logged faults - well I've always used licensed versions of VCDS that were suitable for the age of VW Group car that I was working on, so fo...

Re: Service Interval Question

I've never checked on the car settings section, maybe there is an option there, if not then anyone with VCDS or a VAG Indie or a VW dealership. Edit:- but when changing the oil, you would need to make sure that you were using Long Life oil, do you think that your use of this car long term will invol...

Re: Climatic HAVC Error (J519)

J519 is the BCM controller.

Edit:- I've just spotted the date it happened, 2017!

Re: Rear seats

Cheers guys. I got then without breaking any clips. Being a mechanic helps (proper tools) the rear seats are a pain. Pretty much all the rear trim. All thr isofix slots out. And then they literally yank vertically out. Ps VW wanted more to fit said belt than the belt cost. £170 for the belt £180 to...

Re: Service Interval Question

So next service, which will just be an oil and filter change when 10K miles has passed. So, by your figure for this years running, you will have run 14.5K miles over 12 month period, that if it continues, puts you into the longlife or variable servicing area if you continue doing that mileage in a y...

Re: Polo 6C GTI brake pads

I find it very strange is that EBC only manufacture these brake pads with the wear warning It could be that because EBC are not a very large scale manufacturer, just making all of certain pads with built in wear warning system is cheaper for them than manufacturing 2 different versions, as said alr...

Re: Coolant and oil levels

Any air in the system will finally make its way to the highest point in the system and so it will get carried onwards into the reservoir by that small hose - by design.

Re: Radio stuck on Starting Telephone

Right, now to work out if it is a late 6R or an early 6C Polo, look at the engine, is the turbo at the front or the rear of the engine? If it is at the front then you have a 6R Polo, if the turbo is at the rear of the engine then you have a 6C Polo. I'd not think that any of this changes if you need...

Re: 9n polo rear exterior handle removal

I'd think so, I've never had to find out about that, maybe look for a Haynes manual going cheap as it would answer lots of questions and make your life a bit easier.

Re: Coolant and oil levels

Hi SRGTD, thanks for replying. A really interesting post, I hadn't realised that air could be in the system and over a short period of time will work its way out but sounds so plausible now you've mentioned it. I've got some G13 but I think I'll get a bottle of VW mixing fluid too - cheap enough at...
