That’s it then ? Is it a code it mod, or will it reset automatically once level drops ?

Mine hasn't reset, I'm now down to 3000 miles remaining on adblue, and it's still on.
I assume it has to be done by VW.

[mention]Ripley55 [/mention] The sensor may need replacing or resetting/ recalibrated. From what I’ve heard if you delete the fault code it just comes back. If it’s to do with the NOx sensor that is.

Finished the wiring in the back for the LED’s, just need to wire up the switch panel when it arrives.
Started painting a couple of trims to match the headlining, looking good to me.
Will start taking the rest off and paint the bigger bits then I can get it all back together.

Replaced rubber fuel hoses badly perished, loads of grief removing the 6 torx bolts on the fuel filter housing and snapped the push in fittings on the breather pipe . Had a look at the state of the whole exhaust system which has excessive patina. Lots to be getting on with.

Attempted to wet sand and polish my other mirror cap, After doing one last week, and it turned out lovely👍
This one, not so much!
I blame the bright sunshine out on the deck, but I cut through the lacquer in a couple of places, so have had to rub it down and paint again :roll:

Oh well, you live and learn!

I have reupholstered the kick panels in the Bay window bus though! Id been meaning to get rid of the rubbish White vinyl for ages, and used some left over carpet from the caddy :lol:

He sells them on here.

@ripley 55 I done the same thing mate
My light went out after 70-80 miles of driving
So must have been as level sensor couldn’t fall back into place untill the add blue went down a bit
I had it booked in under warranty but the light went off before hand so I never got checked

From what I have read its an ultrasonic sensor so as soon as it's overfilled, it confuses the sensor and needs recalibrating, read this on a transporter forum so not 100% sure it's the same system, but my lights been on for 2000ish miles now, really must get it sorted lol

Hopefully taking mine in next weekend to my mate’s place for MFSW fitting and coding, so might be able to look what’s going on, and reset, as it’s going to bug me 😩
