    2003 Tourer tailgate won't open/. warning light on

    Internet Explorer Open with IE>Execute IE>Say no to close window. Navigating is a bit odd, chose your model year then model, select workshop manual then topic and use the magnification search button in the top left of window to search that topic.

    2003 Tourer tailgate won't open/. warning light on

    Welcome. We don't seem to get many complaints about premature DMF failure so it was probably done while the clutch was out so should all last longer than 80K, I'm pretty sure I'm on my first at 130K so I think you'd be unlucky if you had to. Don't forget the DMF is part reason why the diesel...

    Alarm again

    I have stupidly chewed the micro screw holding the key fob together by not taking enough initial care, I can't imagine finding a screw extractor small enough for that. Battery is still ok for the time being but any ideas?

    Tailgate again!

    Yes, they're in the workshop manual download of which is in my signature. If you tell me exact model and age I'll see what I can do but I'm telling you now it's often a broken wire in the loom located around the tailgate hinge. Not always mind but do a search and you'll see.

    Central locking works fine, just alarm system isn't engaging and no flashing red light in the dash. What's the quick fix please. New batteries for the fob for starters?

    Need Help with leaking fuel tank

    You can buy all sorts of products nowadays, fuel tank sealer, repairer etc. Not used any myself and usually a proper repair/ replacement would be preferable. If you can't get a replacement there are plenty men in sheds from the classic car world that'll fix it. After all a Mk6 is a classic nowadays.
