  1. Heater matrix gone...

    Lovely mate... thank you very much! Will update when the job is done to add any info for anyone else doing this job in future.

    Cruiser, these images are great but I think they are for the MK 4... any chance of the MK 5 ones? Thanks again.
  3. Heater matrix gone...

    Hi mate Thanks for the reply. If I fill the bottle up to just above the min mark it's gone after a couple of miles, but stood still idling the level doesn't drop. The car doesn't have a sunroof. Stacks of condensation in the car again today (almost dripping off the windscreen) and footwells are damp as ever. I'm guessing it is the whole dash out then? Thanks again for the reply.
  4. Did the engine management light come on? That happened to me also a while back in heavy rain... RAC reset the fault code and it never happened again.
  5. Heater matrix gone...

    Hi guys The heater matrix in my MK5 Golf GTTDI has gone (masses of condensation in the cabin and damp carpets in the footwells) Does anyone know how much of a nightmare it is to change? Does the whole dash have to come out? How long (roughly) should it take? Anything I need to know before attempting it? It's a 2.0 litre diesel with dual climate control if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance.
  6. Hi guys Firstly thanks for a great forum. Ok... here's the thing. Purchased a Golf MkV 2ltr TDI 4 months ago (04 reg 100k miles) and noticed that the led indicator on the nearside wing mirror worked but did not flash consistantly with the other indicators (as in looked like it had a loose connection somewhere) A couple of months on and it has now packed up all together. I've had the door card off and there are no obvious breaks in wires etc. Have tried to use a voltmeter to see if there is power to it but as the circuit flashes not sure if the voltmeter is quick enough to register the small amount of power that will suplly the leds. I have priced up the indicator from the dealers and they sell at £20 inc. VAT so I may well get one and hope that it is the leds that have gone over time. So... firstly anyone have any ideas what coulf be the problem if it isnt the leds? I have checked all fuses and none are blown. Is there a wiring schematic that I can lay my hands on somewhere? Secondly... does anyone know how to change the indicator itself? Do you pop the mirror glass out itself or it it a case of putting a screwdriver in a gap and popping clips off? If it isn't the led's then im really going to be at a loss as this will fail MOT which is due soon. Any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S while I remember the unit is completly dead (as in does not work when hazards are put on either)
