About time I gave the whip its first proper clean so made the most of this amazing weather with a wash, clay, polish and a wax!Image

So that's the Caddy back in the garage and sounds a bit more serious

The previous belt squeak got sorted but it developed another belt squeak and with it being the cam belt tensioner I thought I'd best get it in sooner or later. Also thought whilst it's going in a might as well get the passenger handle sorted

Called them up today for an update - new handle has been ordered.... Let's hope not from Germany! And they mentioned they are having to strip back some parts to try and find out what's casing this belt squeak... Doesn't fill me with confidence

Yay it's fixed again! Then it broke again... But then I fixed it!!!!

Turns out the sticking handle was a bracket inside the door that had broken

Belt squeak was cam belt tensioner(again), and also the idler

Fixed??? Yes, but then on the way home the EML came on but the van drove normal. Get the obdeleven on and it's something about exhaust pressure sensor... Turns out VW just didn't plug it back in

Fingers crossed all fixed now!

So, decided comfort would still be on the agenda before I go into body work and wheels etc, so treated myself to some absolutely mint heated S3 seats in full leather

Now I just need to figure out how to fit them without touran bases

Why don't you want to use touran bases?

Why waste money on bases that may not be required? I've seen a lot of people say they found it too low without them, but also a lot saying they was absolutely fine without them

I suppose it depends how tall your body is to whether you'll find them low or not?

Quick question though - I know when your removing a steering wheel you need to disconnect the battery and leave for 10 minutes before unplugging the air bag.... Is it the same for seats?

To be honest you only need to leave it if your doing wiring on the airbag system if your only removing and refitting you dont need to leave it as long as your not poking the wires has your caddy got airbags in the seats??

Yeah got air bags in the current and new seats. I know I need a new loom so won't be able to connect then back up at the moment but I'll worry about that in a few weeks time
