  1. Water in passenger footwell - stumped!

    Door dropped down causing the seal not to close fully? The mk1 Leon’s suffer badly with this but it’s the membrane seal failing. Or maybe the seal itself is naff?

  11. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    It’s off a Mercedes forum thing about a stripped head bolt? Any merc head bolts use female sockets.
  12. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    They only strip out if you don’t get the socket square on, another sign of bad workmanship.
  13. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    Plus the picture you show there would use a female socket anyway which isn’t an issue.
  14. Help arosa sdi (wheel bearing) noise

    I use multi spline ones, was sure they’d strip the new bolt but was extremely surprised when they didn’t, even when putting stupid torque setting on them.

  16. Heater only working on face setting

    So what is actually fitted in the car regarding vents?
  17. Heater only working on face setting

    Have you made sure all the cables are fitted to the switches?
  18. I imagine it’s a safety override as well as an economy feature, so when the brake pedal is pressed it shuts off throttle inputs a - if you’re braking you’re not wanting to gain speed so fueling is cut to a minimum to save using fuel, and b - if you panic and catch both pedals when stomping on the brakes, it stops you going full throttle into whatever it is you’re trying to avoid hitting.
  19. Have you tried another ecu?
