Re: Leather seats

I have used autoglym products in the past but I am using supaguard now as they were supplied with the car, however, if you look at my previous post the leather still started flaking on the seam , replaced under warranty.

Re: Tyre rotation

I have just rotated the tyres on my AWD T4. The service showed 1mm more wear on the front than the rear after 10,000 miles , when I swap I want to switch to all season tyres so I will have to change all 4 at once so this makes that more economical. I also understand that uneven wear on AWD vehicles ...

Stop Start function and trickle charging

Had an interesting discovery today. I have been using a CTEK MXS 5.0 trickle changer on the car since new but the battery has never seemed fully charged and the stop start rarely functioned , perhaps not surprising given the lack of use due to Covid. I needed a second trickle charger for my motorbik...

Drivers seat pealing

Just went to clean the leather drivers seat and discovered the surface is starting to peal around the stitching.

The car is just 2 years old, anyone else had this?

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

The car is brilliant in snow , the hill decent control when in off road mode was excellent when descending a steep snow covered slope.

Also when in off road mode you get a compass on the driver display :D

Re: Sunroof blind stuck

The service manager told me the sunroof had to be calibrated, they also did a software update at the same time.

I have checked the fuse which is ok and I can hear the relay clicking when the switch is activated. Tried d...
