    might be worth editing this to indicate knocking/clunking in a variety of situations (driving at low speeds, turning, driving on an incline, etc)

    I had the same noise but ignored this fix because it would only happen when accelerating/decelerating (not while turning). also it would stop once the car warmed up a little so it was really hard to reproduce/identify it.

    bright side is I had the spacers fitted today and problem solved!

    Guys and girls... or just guys :p...

    I'm just waiting to get a 2010 Leon and was wondering if there is any way of finding out if there are any recalls on it, or just taking it in to a dealer and having it all checked under warranty? Any ideas?

    thanks :)

    Just ring SEAT UK Customer Services and give them your registration or VIN. They will tell you if there are any TPI's for it. Shouldn't be on a '10 plate (depending on model).

    Rocking noise

    Hello
    Just got 2005 Cupra r a few weeks ago but currently has like a rocking noise. It gets faster as the car gets faster, the front brakes are due soon could it have something to do with that? Was mot'd when I bought it and I got the timing belt and water pump done last week at vw so if it was anything major I think they would have spotted it. Any ideas or am I just being paranoid?

    Hoping its something less major than that !
    Brakes all done free of charge from dealer but noise still there so taking it back on Wednesday for another look. VW engineer had a bit listen and thought it may be wheel bearing. Fingers crossed its as simple as that!!

    When my intercooler pipe came loose it make a whooshing noise like air being forced through a pipe (exactly what it is I guess), not a whistling.
    Depends what car it is. More details would be needed but if it's the same as mine (2.0TDI 140bhp PD) then it doesn't have an N75 valve.
    Loud turbo winning is a sign of a dying turbo normally I think. Correct me if I'm wrong anyone.

    Also, you might want to post this as an actual post not just in common faults. Not the right place for this.
    Cheers
    Bob

    Heater fan stops. Taking it out and applying WD40 works, at least for a while.

    Just spoke to seat customer seevices and they informed me that the Tpi had been rescinded as its not a known issue. I said it obviously was as they wouldn't have issued one in the first place but they would provide no further info. Is there a new Tpi?

    Coilpack failure - 20k miles on the EA888 2.0 TSI FR engine - I though the coilpack failing days were gone!

    The TPI definitely hasn't been rescinded as I (SEAT tech) still do them to this day.

    As for a new TPI, all they do is update them using the original number followed by /1 /2 /3 depending on the amount of updates.

    So do I just go into a dealer and quote the Tpi- it's out of warranty
