      Ah - that makes perfect sense, Tim. I agree.

      Good luck if you continue the hunt. I've had doors on both my Phaetons repaired by VW two years ago. Both still look like new... mosts of the body...

      if it's from a regujlar dealer, you could just get them to get it fixed for you as part of the deal....??

      Very easy to poke fun at US legislators with things like this... but I imagine there's plenty of daft things from the EU (or even UK) that we just don't notice anymore... or just live with. My...

      Thanks Michael. Can't quite see the logic of having a light to tell you that the air bag you don't need is not armed....

      Hi Ash - good to know you're still here - hope this means gearbox and other issues now behind you.

      Note to moderators

      I wonder if Tom's query should have its own thread? It's allied to the OP... but is a subtly different discussion.

      Hi Tom - I would never connect the two batteries together - that would completely defeat the charging system and probably ruin both batteries. The LH battery is one of the biggest in the known...

      Welcome Tim - Can't think of too much to add to John's advice. One thing that does require consideration is the health of the LH battery - it's five years old... so should be OK... but six years is...
