Write your question here...I am having a problem with my dashboard that is cracking. how can I fix this problem myself.

Answers

Hi Deon, you will need to go to a plastic bumper repairer. If you are the Western Cape, one of my cousins has a company where he repairs plastic bumpers and specifically dashboards. If not in the Western Cape, google for a plastic bumper repair company. Patrick from South Africa

Answer this question

Hard Worker, Nottinghamshire

Volkswagen Polo

My wife's Polo was recently impounded by the Council, and after retrieving it a picture of a spanner has been appearing on the dashboard - immediately after starting the car. It goes off after a few minutes, but it's certainly something that was not there before. Any ideas on what it could be? [2014 Polo 1.4 Match Edition - petrol, 7,500 miles] Ps I first saw the light when I got into the car at the impound. I thought it's one of those anti-theft sensor things that detected the car is being towed/ flat-bedded without keys in the ignition slot... but it's been coming back every time I start the car - for around 3/5 seconds

Answers

That can always be re-set; just go to any car service place and they can reset that for you. What it simply tells you is that your car is due for service. Usually after every 15 000 km's. But remember, that has nothing to do with the engine or the battery or anything. It literally is only a light to which give you an indication that your car is due for a service. Just reset it like you would reset the time on your odometer. That little button thing. Patrick from South Africa

Amanda, South Africa

Volkswagen Polo

I drive a 2012 Polo Vivo 1.4 automatic. I changed my front brakes pads a few months ago. Everything seemed fine until the rain started. If I drive on a dry road my brakes work perfectly, but if the road is very wet due to a down pour and I need to brake suddenly, it feels like my brake pad shutter and that the brakes are metal on metal and my vehicle doesn't come to a stand still. Took it back to VW but they can't seem to find the problem. As I mentioned it's only on a wet road. Can you please advise?
