  1. It's a porous filter that will absorb the spray. The drawing in of the outside air will therefore release the mist from the filter into the system. If you deem the filter to be an obstacle, take it out. ;) I've used this method on all my cars.
  2. Spray it into the outside vent with the car switch on outside circulation and on its coldest setting.
  3. Doesn't the key have to be in the proximity? as per the above caricature.
  4. Interesting "How to" here:
  5. "Scratch" I believe is the widely accepted spelling. Depends on the severity of the damage. If it doesn't come out with T cut you may need to get a quote from one of those chips away type companies. Some of the other members who are into detailing may offer better advice.
  6. After explaining the above scenario what do you think is more likely?
  7. Stupid boy Pike. It points you in the direction of the fault. If it works it means the belt is either loose or faulty and needs replacement.
  8. As others have said, get a Tom Tom or Garmin with lifetime map updates, watch for the offers at Halfords, absolute bargain sometimes for less than £100. Bin off the Lexus sat nav.
  9. Spray some soapy water on the belt, if it goes quiet you've found the issue.
  10. Bookmarked. Does he do Mexican snacks while you wait.
  11. It was Autoglass that did my repair, not a very talkative technician, but fine job. I've also stood and watched, with his permission, an AA man fit a new windscreen to my neighbours Golf. Very interesting, he was very good and talked me through the installation.
  12. That's why I don't let anyone do anything to my car.
  13. The last time I had damage like that I contacted my insurance, as mentioned above, asked who they deal with for windscreen, found my nearest one, called in, bloke had a look and filled the hole with gunk. 40 minutes, sign here, job jobbed. But it has to be assessed first, yours looks a borderline, fill with gunk / new screen to me.
