Re: Recall: Tailgate wiring harness

Had members with non opening tail gates one of which was blamed on harness. They didnt provide an emergency opening access like on earlier models so dealers have had to "break in". I reckon its possible to drill a couple of holes near the manual release catch but you'd need to do it before anything...

Re: 1.0t OR 1.4t BE?

There's always one :lol: I wonder if you kept repeating "HID, remap, HID, remap" he would self combust? :? It was Rachael who started on about HIDs - still now you are in the girl gang you can troll a few more people and giggle some more. You might have someone like jarviser living next door to you...

only by cheating the system. Buying clean and getting car tax benefits, then making it dirty is a practice that should be illegal like any other benefit fraud.

Re: 1.0t OR 1.4t BE?

Cheers for the reply, After thinking about it I think I'm going to go for a more highly specced 1.4t 100PS and simply ReMap it to 150/180PS if I feel it needs it. I can effectively spend the left over saved money on any exhaust modifications etc I want! If you remap it it will put the insurance up....

Re: Battery

Just wait 4 or five years and have the garage replace it. There is absolutely no reason to take the battery out unless you are hooked on home mechanics and just want to do it for the sake of it. Bench charging can be done in situ.

Re: Battery

you dont need to take it out. connect a charger to the earth terminal and the + terminal under the little flap
It will not harm anything. I have done it many times thanks to the wife's love of seat heating.

The AA connected a huge jump start box to mine as above without blinking.

Re: Couple of Questions

Ignore temporary mesages at boot-up time. only enduring messages need to be acted upon. You cant turn traction control off on most Corsas. Are you in a non-EU country that doesn't mandate DLRs for vehicles made after 2010? Cant think of a reason to turn them off anyway but you would need to mechanic...
