    Yip, big problem in Gauteng. Had this at the Mc Donalds in Sandton recently, - known hotspot for this. Eventually had to lock with the key manually. When I got back to the vehicle I could unlock with the remote no problem.

    I'm very conscious of my car actually locking, so not a big problem for me.

    The keyfob was lighting up so not a battery issue.

    Eventually car locked. I then unlocked and locked 3 times without hassle.

    Please guys, be careful out there. I know for a fact that holding the little blue gate motor remotes, blocks the VW keyfob remote.

    Tested the blue remote with my polo remote, was able to lock and unlock my car while holding in the blue remote button.
    But there must be something different they are using in JHB as there was a few occasions that I had to walk back to the car as the key won't lock it.

    Nice. How did things go in the snow? Judging by the dirt you did not only stick to the roads.

    I had great fun. Even on the slushy roads i forced a drift with esp on and off to see the difference.

    It is insanely difficult to get it sideways. Even when jerking at the wheel like a maniac!

    If esp is on, you dont get full power on slush. You mash the throttle and nothing happens, the esp light just blinks here and there.

    The traction control was impressive climbing that snow hill(esp was off - but TC remains on) I went slow as i didnt want to hit the disco on the right and after that tried to keep a steady throttle. It just found traction like I couldn't believe. A cherokee tried to follow me but couldnt even get halfway. Granted it was a baby cherokee.

    The treg impressed tremendously.

    On top of that, flying there, messing about and flying back home yielded just under 12l/100km for the day.

    Ps : the rest function is awesome. Set the temp to 25. Switch off the car, press the rest button and get out. Play in the snow, take pics etc. get back in and the car's inside is still nice and warm. It recirculates engine coolant via electric pump and keeps the interior blower fan running. Pure bliss! Now, who wants a .......... again?

    End of the experiment/documentation - http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/...d.php?t=184572

    I took the last pic before servicing the car today.

    275'474km (8'951km after service)


    The car has been serviced and it has idled for 5 minutes. I did the same thing with this service except I didn't pull the tappet cover this time. Drain oil completely. Pour 500ml clean oil down the oil filter housing. Pour 500ml clean oil down the oil filler hole.

    Let that 1000ml drain as well - straight through.

    Replace sump plug and fill with oil.

    If I pull the dipstick now the oil is brand new without a hint of blackness.

    I may perhaps put up a picture in a couple of weeks after my trip to Douglas and back.

    Moenie begin nie!

    Gelukkig het skoon Pa'le getrek. Hulle het nou eie huis gekoop en huur nie meer daar waar die rotte was nie. Sy borskas staan breed en ek dink die rotte is nou te bang vir hom om naby te kom. Ek hoop so!

    I bought and fitted a pollen filter last week. I was tired of cleaning dust on the instrument panels.

    The pollen filter has activated carbon that absorbs bad smells. I drove behind a cattle truck earlier in the week that was dripping excrement. I couldnt smell a thing.

    Slight cold perhaps?

    700km done and dusted this morning. I wont comment on time and consumption this time.

    I spotted today that the pipe that feeds my airbox was not connected properly.



    This doesnt introduce dirty air but it does compromise the wading depth considerably. Im glad i chickened out at the GTG for the water part. I may have had another expensive engine failure. It also explains why my air filter was filthy after just 10'000km.



    I suspect the A/C guys who stuffed my A/C pump clutch didnt assemble properly as there were many things I sorted behind their useless back ends.



    So I took the front right plastic diamond mesh off and pushed it back into place. I recommend you all have a look. Just looking through the mesh towards the air filter location you will see if it is properly connected or not.



    I wonder if it will make a difference to the fuel economy.....

    I was a passenger in a tuna yesterday.

    I'll keep the treg.
