    Angry Time for the MK 4 to go

    That is it

    my Y plate 1.6 16v club must go. I have had it - I always joked about the little gremlin in my cars electrics, but the bleeding thing is now mugging me.

    Interior light that do not go out ( even had to remove the bulb from the front courtesy light).
    The alarm on the door that lets you know when the light are on that fails or goes of mysterously

    Getting me down time to lose an old friend and move on - shame just had VX fit new steering rack ( at the dealers expense) - she drives sweet but this has done me in

    See the mart have a unfitted spoiler ( primed) , INNX font strut brace for sale time for a new car

    So let me get this right, the interior light doesnt go off, and the door buzzer doent work so you have decided to sell it because of that. Not exactly major issues tbh. Thought about replacing the door switch?

    I don't understand your logic, your selling it because of that, well your going to get less money for it, is it not just as easy to find an independant garage who can source the problem?
