    Yesterday I dealt with this paint blemish on the roof caused by bird droppings. Looks like it was on the roof for a couple of days during the recent hot weather.

    This is actual damage to the clear coat and was invisible when viewed from directly above after the droppings were cleaned off but very noticeable at an angle.

    I smoothed the blemish out with some 5000 grit wet & dry followed by a first polish with some 7000 grit and then brought the finish back with some Scratch X.

    Very happy with the end result. It looks perfect and you can’t even tell it was ever there.


    Oh, and I popped out to the local dealer to order some wheel bolt covers as some toe rag seems to have help themselves to a few of mine!

    Changed the camshaft sensor
    Cleaned and re oiled the panel filter
    Replaced the air-box rubber mountings

    Still need to get to fitting new brake discs and pads and get to the bottom of where the fault causing P0010 code is.

    A up, just done some Googling which I'm sure you've done already and found the following stuff
    • Engine timing out of sync
    • Engine oil sludge (from lack of oil changes)
    • Worn timing components (chains, gears, guides)
    • Crankshaft or camshaft sensor malfunctions
    • Wiring damage
    • ECM software out of date
    • ECM internal damage
    90% of the sites suggest the sensor which you've already changed so not sure if any of these are true to code but maybe worth looking into?

    Cheers

    Took it for a run and its running full boost. Code started the very next key turn after topping up the engine oil which is still 1500 miles before next change due. Torque app says P0010 - Powertrain "A" Camshaft position Actuator Circuit (Bank1)

    First 30 seconds after startup its a bit lumpy with the odd hiccup and then settles and drives just fine and gives full power no problem so plot thickens.

    Took mine for a Revo stage 2 map. Then found out it probably has a boost leak, as it's only hitting 0.93 when it should be reaching 1.5. So bit of a ying & yang day!

    My old last Leon went nearly 2 months ago and I've been driving around in a works C1 but today I've been told my new car is coming next week :))) Another Leon, but this time a MK3 ST FR 2.0tdi Technology. Very excited and will massively appreciate it after a couple of months in the C1. As its a works car strictly speaking, I will have to keep it standard, but may do some coding / feature enabling.

    Had to drive 50 mile round trip to collect some front brake discs as the delivery driver ASSUMED that as the address was to a school that there would not be anyone there in half-term even though schools still have support staff onsite through the year. Then a knock sound has started from the steering FFS right after having to order a VVT actuator solenoid :censored:

    Going to be masking the contact areas and putting some VHT paint on to rust prevent.

    Cant decide which colour as the car is yellow and the calipers are red.

    Black goes with yellow and red and would be easier to paint one would assume lol

    Changed all 4 brake discs and new pads all round. :drive1:

    Copper free lube on the slide pins and copper grease where needed.

    The caliper carrier bolts on the rear were a right pig to undo.

    Will put pics up tomorrow and try to make a guide a I searched but can't see a Cupra R one which I can list all tools needed.
