Thanks to Tunnie for spending time on code scanning and resetting fault codes on the Phaeton - much appreciated.

Some issues date from a service visit to the main dealer in August when no work was carried out on the electrics at all. A week later the entertainment system failed. A re-programme sorted everything out but the fault codes remain so pursuing this with Phaeton users forum in first instance

I am about to start on our extension and will be going building notice route as the project is fairly simple. Just going through deeds to try and find routing of services but all seems a bit vague. Trouble is the ducts could all be within project area as they run through front garden to road. Also going through the Diagnostique Report for a property in Dordogne we are interested in. Not 100% on this as yet given the distance and frequency of use whilst I still have family issues in Manchester area but probably a good long term strategy.


Termites are a big issue in Dordogne. The survey report is more about arse covering that identifying specific issues on asbestos for example - 72 pages!!! in French.

Tunnie- I just had  electric rollerdor fitted. You are welcome to come around to take a look. I went for the uprated version with the auto close and sensor and better insulation.  Was ideal to maximise storage.

Thanks  :y

Might just do that.  :)

Phaeton running well I hope?  :y

Has been fine until last couple of days when emissions light came on and went off. Suspect a failing
sensor.

General Discussion Area / Hive Central Heating and Water
« on: 28 September 2018, 17:39:45 »
Just to relay my experience today with what I thought would be a fairly straight forward installation.

I decided  to go for central heating control from my phone/laptop etc. I fortunately had a gas engineer to do it.

Old programmer removed and Hive receiver fitted its place no problem. Working fine on direct.

Start to connect hub to pair with receiver. 2 hours later and having moved hub to line of sight to receiver (and back again)  still no pairing.

Phone British Gas/Hive who start off saying problem is the solid walls and then asks for some details off the back of the hub - next thing it pairs and he tells me Hive hub is 9.1 metres from the receiver.

All working but checking on Hive reviews appears this is quite common. Lesson - if it don't connect straight away don't waste time thinking it is your set up - ring Hive to do some jiggery pokery in the background.

A shame they could not just say to him that it is in bad taste from their point of view and next time they will report him rather than sending off straight away.

If he has previous maybe they have already been there.


On another matter a bloke said he was going to hit me with the neck of a guitar. I think it was a fret!!


Tadaa


I'm here every week.

That is a brilliant overview of the system in a few lines - well done LC0112G (is that a numbered Swiss Bank Account?)

So, itís all fixed. Turns out it was a washer inside the wheel hub, which had failed. I had seen it as a possible cause, but I could not get any codes to suggest this.

Iím £150 lighter as a result, but happy itís all resolved.

Was that Eden Camberley??

Yes  :y

They have been pretty good over the years on the Astra and Insignia.

not sure if I mentioned before but dealer price for new infotainment system was £5300 - so £270 to get it fixed today was appreciated.

Phaetons will only get cheaper... Set of tyres, £800-1,000... Brakes, same... V6 timing chain, writes the car off... Dsg, writes the car off...

Not cheap but tyres £130ish, discs and pads at an indie about £600 all round. Hope I do not hit the other issues. Still on original exhaust so that should be fun. But mileage on tyres has been excellent - 43000 on rears and 24000 on fronts. I occasionally think of a change but quickly revert back when I look at  the Touareg new price. Phaeton looks and drives like new still so will continue. It has cost on average £1000 a year for servicing, tyres, brakes and repairs. Only had brakes done by indie so far rest at main dealer.

Not all things - Chiltern based are bad. Must give a plug for HazzyDayz VW and Audi retrofitters in Markyate near St Albans.

Having had a quote from the VW dealer for a new infotainment system RNS810 which is fitted to the Phaeton (Video player/Hard Disk Drive etc etc) of £5300 I took myself over to HazzyDayz who rebuilt the software and upgraded maps etc to latest features for £270!!!


You hardly ever see Phaetons but there were 3 there today in the City of Markyate.


Fantastic bunch of guys and the rebuild took several hours so went to visit the sights of St Albans!!
