Re: Tow Bar Electrics and Coding

Hi Duncan So long ago I can remember who I spoke to etc etc. As mentioned I have removed the wiring from the car and have actually managed to sell the kit on ebay with a corresponding financial loss. I don't think I'll ever fit the electrics myself as this whole issue of coding and possibly having i...

Re: Tow Bar Electrics and Coding

I have not progressed on with it any further. We only use the rack once or twice a year and I don't think we have ever used it at night.

Re: Tow Bar Electrics and Coding

UPDATE Decided the dashboard warnings are too annoying, so went in again and removed the can bus connections and the single power connection on the other BCM plug. HOORAY! the car started up without the Pre-Sense fault and all is well again. Obviously we have no tow bar electrics at the moment but ...

Re: Tow bar fitment/bumper removal

So that's the mechanical work done.

Re: Tow bar fitment/bumper removal

Remove the eight 13mm bolts holding the original metal bar on. Remove the metal bar and discard - getting the bolts to the holes as per instructions. 5675 The Westfalia metal structure slides in the apertures exposed by removing the original metal bar. Push it in as far as it will go. I found the bo...

Re: Tow bar fitment/bumper removal

Tow Bar Electrics and Coding

Yes the old old story..... You know, I wish I hadn't started this now. I wonder if I should have gone the bypass relay route, but, no I chose Westfalia dedicated wiring kit for the wife's Q2 thinking it will be easier and all the car's systems will work in harmony - how wrong could I have been?
