Re: 3 metallic raps

Is there a way I could diagnose if it's CV joint rattle myself?

3 metallic raps

I've got a new noise that is driving me mad trying to diagnose. It is a metallic rattle, a bit like a heatshield, but it is always 3 sharp knocks, like someone knocking on a tin can with a spoon. Never 2, never 4, always 3. Somewhere to the front and right of me, probably around the wheel area. And ...

Re: touching up rear paintwork - grey 2014

It's definitely plastic. Which I think will make painting a lot easier, no need for primers etc.
Got a £7.50 spray can from Halfords, painted some plastic pieces in the garage last night and they seem to be an exact match in the sunlight today, so I'm going to give it a go.

touching up rear paintwork - grey 2014

Hi all, Had my first scrape, and looking to touch it up. Rear passenger corner. No dents, just paint scraped off. Picture below. So is the black the primer underneath, or is this a black plastic piece of bodywork? Any tips on doing this? And is there a good place to get the exact match paint other t...

Re: FIRMWARE VERSION

At last - D605 now lets you press the forward/back key on the steering wheel to cycle through your 6 DAB presets, rather than through the whole DAB list alphabetically! Been waiting for that one for years. I thought this would just be the bug fix for the reboot issues, so it's nice to see new featu...

Re: SD Navigation updated card

My v4 card arrived last night from ebay. Was a bit dubious at first at £18.50, but it appears to be genuine. Put it in a PC and compared with v3. v3 had map data Q1 2017, v4 has map data Q1 2018. But it seems to be a big one - I remember going from v2 to v3 and not much changed, but now on v4 all th...

Re: 1.2 DIG-T - Oil loss

To add to all the confusion - I got the timing chain rattle which ultimately led to engine replacement, but I never experienced any oil loss, and I checked regularly due to all the issues reported on here. So even without oil loss in terms of the main sump that is checked via the dipstick, the timin...
