  1. Same sort of problem week before last going to France from Plymouth. Overnight ferry from Plymouth and the satnav was totally confused for quite a few miles the next day in France. Good job that I actually new the route. Only had it set so that I didn't miss the coffee stop about 150 miles in. obviously being trapped in a metal box isolated the car overnight. Terry
  2. And what about a full size spare that was not originally in the car when new.??? Think reason and common sense need be applied.Unfortunately that doesn't happen with a lot of things nowadays . Suspect we are in a minefield with this one. Terry
  3. Reference the PDI , this is no doubt the downside of buying online. No salesman to go back to and as good as the online company were and I have to say mine were excellent what do you do in a situation like that. Trouble is that you wander what else could have been missed. Terry
  4. Wow, my car is now 14 months old so I hope those door plugs were removed, can you tell me where to look to check that they have been removed please? I think that bad PDI work is the possible downside of buying online as I guess the supplying dealer has cut his profit to the bone and just wants to shift the car on with minimal input. Terry I
  5. Found a plastic bag in the passenger side of mine nearly out of sight under the seat. turned out to be 2 plastic blanking plates that even had instructions with them that they had to be fitted on the chassis ends to stop water going inside the frame of the car at the front end. Took me to minutes to fit them but really not good enough. Trouble was that the car was purchased from an online dealer. Terry
  6. Hi A word of warning about those clips with kit PQZ21. when fitted the edges of them are like razor blades, it's easy to run your fingers over them when cleaning the car. And yes they are pushed up as far as they will go. I ended up putting gaffer tape over the ends of the clips so problem solved for me. regards Terry
  7. That's it, thanks πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Its the age thing! What's my name ?πŸ™„πŸ˜‚ Terry
  8. Hi, yes I had metal dust caps seize up on me in a remarkably short time. Tried that gold coloured grease that you put on the back of brake pads and that helped a lot second time around. Screw them on and leave them at your peril. I have now gone fore chrome effect plastic ones. regards Terry
  9. Hi Bit of guessology but could this be a problem within the computer set up. Is it worth having the car plugged in at a garage and checked out. only other thing is that it could be a fault in the stalk as I assume that you pull back to flash the lights but push forward to go to high beam. Possibly worth getting an auto electrician to check it out. Just trying to help regards Terry
  10. HOW LONG ???? Poor car hasn't got a chance πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Power washers aren't a good idea long term either. Personally I don't find it a bad car to wash at all. The only oddball is the rear door vertical seals that get totally covered in road grit etc and need a good clean with the hose on a gentle spray. Just proves those seals are doing their job though. Terry
  11. Hi Had this repair carried out on my 2020 excel end of last year including the replacement side rail. The dealer was excellent in wanting to get this right first time for me. Not had a problem since. As above the information is all there for the dealer if they take the trouble to look. regards Terry
  12. Hi as said before I find the 19 inch wheels very easy to clean though I use 2 different size wheel brushes. You will find that an 18 inch wheel will work as a spare as said here before Terry
  13. Hi I had a vibrating noise around the lower dash area.Turned out after a lot of hassle to be the cable that I had run from the cigar lighter across and behind the plastic covering below the steering wheel and up the pillar and behind the headlining across to the rear view mirror to feed the dash cam! These wires are hard plastic and gradually settle against the panels within the car.And vibrate!!!! Acquired soft rubber tubing and sheathed the wire!! A very annoying problem solved but of my own doingπŸ™„πŸ™„ Terry
  14. Got to agree 100% with the above I am sorry to say. Bored and falling asleep are a real concern Terry
