    May have been asked before and I have read the manual and most of the comments on here but...
    My reverse dipping mirrors, the L hand one works fine but I can't get the R hand one to do it at all.
    Is this impossible or am I being thick?
     
  2. As far as I recall it only works on the Passenger mirror so you can have it working on one or the other dependant on being left or right hand drive car.

    How ridiculous of them.
    It can't be that difficult for them to make it work on both at the same time giving you the choice of which one to use.
     
  4. Well lets hope the VAG Boys read this and add it into there requirements document :)

    And just to add

    Designing a good looking car is as easy as pie
    Designing a car that the company can afford
    The manufacturing guys can assemble
    The Engineers can engineer

    That’s dam difficult.

    Useful thread. I read the manual last night, and (ignoring the left vs right issue) it seemed to talk about going into menus in the screen that it appears you don't need to (and those menus referred to weren't in my list anyway!).

    Gotta say the manual has to say proved to be absolutely useless for anything I have tried to do. Really really bad, much worse that others I have had in the past. Almost like it was written for another car, a previous model, and just makes no sense.

    Likewise re servicing requirements and what's required and when (brake fluid, plugs, diff, etc). Useless SEAT info on that, really bad.

    Thanks for the link - I did see them on another thread, and they are useful. Not as "user-friendly" as a manual should be (as by its nature, it's a workshop manual) but useful nonetheless given how poor the manuals are.

    Re it being all VAG that are as poor, maybe it is, but more of a recent thing. We have a 2002 and 2007 VAG as well, and their manuals are fine, useful, easy to understand, so maybe the standards have just slipped over the years (maybe as they realise not many people bother reading them, so they can't be bothered to invest in them, or just general cost-cutting).
     
  8. I suspect a bit of everything, so now you I am told don't get a service book, its all done on line and you can access it but have to pay a small charge to extract it from Erwin which is going to be fun when people ask to see the service record.
