    All,

    As you may have read, one of my injectors went last week. Seat UK have agreed for the work to be done and it's going to be sorted soon. However, another fault has been found within the ECU.

    On the way home before the injector went, I had the traction control light come on and JCT600 confirmed it needs a 'repair kit of the ABS unit' which is something to do with the software apparently.

    Cost of it is £149 + 2-3 hours labour. Apparently Seat UK will only pay 50% labour and 50% parts if I have FSSH.

    Anyone had this issue? I want a full 100% cover.

    Luke

    Got this all sorted in the end, apparently it was the pressure sensor on the ABS unit.

    Seat UK paid 50% and my warranty paid the other 50% yes.

    I presume you mean the official Seat Manufacturers warranty? If so - no it's 4.5yrs old now.

    Hi

    Can someone confirm if the ABS unit for a 2007 Leon FR is the same as that of a Golf 5 GTI

    Result! Quick email to my local garage got car booked in for £122 for parts and labour inc Vat to get the fix applied. No issues, I've had all three in warranty services with the dealer, only the 40k service which was when the car was 3yr 6mo old was at a local Bosch garage.

    Was told I got the maximum seat contribution so that was as cheap as it could be :)

    Just got to wait until the 21st Nov, busy garage :(
