Looking to see why the screen wash is so loose


Just checked. There is a curved metal bracket there. Two bolts into the chassis and one into the washer bottle.

Finally got round to fitting a dash cam that has been sitting on my workbench for a while. Motivated by a couple of drivers pulling out of side roads in front of me last week. ☹

Just had to order a cruise control switch. Fortunately my mk6 only requires the one side and not the combined one. Looks an easy part to fit once the steering column covers are off provided the necessary precautions are taken with the airbag.

Today the car's awaiting collection for its major service at 184k miles.  I'm hoping there's no hidden suprises as I'm doubtful the garage will have any Black Friday deals on!  :grin:

My mk6 only has another 100k to catch up with your milage😀. That is a good mileage so must be in good condition. Hopefully mine lasts that long and petrol does not run out!
