Re: Condensation and water droplets inside headlight

Presumably they check the unit for assignable cause and then get the work authorised by VW UK who may also check if its a common issue etc?

Re: Condensation and water droplets inside headlight

Hello, I've just noticed water droplets in the nearside iD Matrix headlight housing (see photo) I telephoned the dealer and they told me they would need to check with VW HQ to see if it is covered by warranty. The car is eleven months old. Has anyone else got this problem? Thanks iD3 Headlight.jpg[...

Re: Condensation and water droplets inside headlight

There'll be breather holes in the casing to stop the housing imploding or exploding (not like a bomb, but enough to rupture the hiusing) with temp changes. Occasionally the rubber grommets that seal the electrical connections to the headlight aren't seated properly, or you have people blasting their...

Re: VW Customer Services?????

Agreed about the labour rates. I never took my previous Ford to the main dealer but that was an ICE vehicle. How many independents know anything about EV vehicles, let alone have the right equipment. I think the VW dealerships have us over a barrel for the foreseeable future. Is there a need to ser...

Re: Start date PCP contribution offer

The £1750 deposit contribution is current and has been in place for months, it's unlikely to disappear unless something better replaces it, or sales are so buoyant, VW UK thinks it no longer needs to offer it. If you have your finance approved and the incentive was available then, you will still get...

Re: VW Customer Services?????

Local independent using equivalent but unofficial parts is miles cheaper than a franchised dealer for a non-warranty repair? Shock horror! :lol: Dealership labour rates around £80ph vs £30ph local independent, and access to competitively priced parts. VW refused to state which brand the EGR was. OE...

Re: Are you honouring your trade in deal?

nope, i agreed a trade in and only told the dealer when i went to pick the car up (meant to call before but forgot) it took about 2 mins to change some paperwork and i sent the cash over, they really dont care if you trade in or not You're right, they really aren't going to lose sleep over it. Some...

Re: Car weight - passengers and range?

I do find that recirculation in conjunction with aircon works wonders, so the car isn't chucking out all of that freshly chilled air as soon as its made it. 2.7 miles per kWh is quite low if you're doing 70mph, but not unexpected if you're doing 85mph. ACC isn't really going to cost you any fuel in ...

Re: VW Customer Services?????

VW customer services is next to useless. They should not be called customer services. Most responses are, "take it to a dealer" and they forget to say you will be charged £70 for a diagnostics, even if you have already had one. Charging for diagnostics is a rarity among the dealerships, c...
