Re: Power doorlock actuator failure

This is one of the reasons why I purchased the 7 year, 140000 km warranty with 0$ deductible! Any electrical issue or other problems and off to the dealer I go.
Enjoy your ride.

Are you absolutely positive that your leak is coming from the sunroof ?looks to me like these things are sealed pretty tight.

Re: We are getting ripped off

No one is forcing the consumer to purchase anything you don't want!
If you feel that you're being ripped off, go buy the competitors product.

Re: Minor Interior panel creaks and squeaks

I agree the Kritox was expensive.
The Gummi Pflege is also an excellent product.

Re: Rubber trim imperfections.

Lubricate it really well with Aerospace 303 and park it in the sun for a day or two and the rubber trim will go back to its original shape.
