Re: XC40 suitable for tall and small drivers?

Tomtallon, we have the same issue: my better half is 5'0" and I'm 5'11". With every other car we've shared, changing drivers positions between us has been a real pain. With the XC40 we have our individual memory settings to set the seat and mirrors, and don't even need to reset the steering wheel as...

Re: ME & MUDFLAPS

I've just fitted a set, ordered on eBay for £25.99 on 9th February. Arrived on 19th February from China. They seem robust and look great quality, the finish matching the rest of the XC40's lower trim perfectly. Very easy to fit, and they line up perfectly. Their mounting holes align exactly with the...

Re: Unusual screenwash consumption

An Audi A3 I owned some years ago had the same problem. Audi dealers response was the usual "They all do that Sir". Eventually located the problem myself - a headlamp washer pipe had been partly cut through during assembly! Oddly, this didn't result in a visible leak under the car, presumably the wa...

Re: Brake groan

I was the original poster and can confirm the issue still exists after 8,000 miles and two visits to different dealers. Yes, the noise is worse with auto-hold engaged, and one of the dealers did try to tell me the same tale as abby606 was advised. However, I've never experienced autohold to hang on ...

Re: Sensus Screen Protector

I haven’t put on a screen protector and had no intention of getting one. Then I had a conversation in passing with the sales rep who sold me the car. He was telling me about one of his clients who had an XC60 and had to pay to have a new unit installed he said it was over £1,400 and this was becaus...

Re: T5 performance questions

OK, thanks that's interesting and what I was hoping to hear. Couple of follow-ups: Is it an R-Design or Inscription (or should FE tell me??). I'm guessing probably R Design, so the excess roll when cornering is still noticeable with the sports suspension? Wonder whether the adaptive dampers would m...

Re: Squint Steering Wheel

Hi hdasmith, mine is aligned centrally. Hope you get it sorted, I'm sure it must be a bit of an annoyance when driving!

Re: Brake groan

Hi Andygou I wonder if the date of production and batch of pads and discs has anything to do with it. Our 40s are of similar age and model spec. Mines still the same in the wet or in the dry, backwards or forwards, gentle release of the brake on a slope brake assist off, in or out of drive mode the...
