Hi
2 things i could do with some pointers on:

1. Fitted new fibre optic cable and bonnet actuators but still getting dash error. Does this need to be engineer reset? Can't find it on my OBD

2. Drivetrain error. Any ideas what this could be as again nothing comes up on the OBD reader.

Thanks for the reply, have checked there a few times but not only is it very sparse on this subject, it seems like the site has been taken down which is a real pain given i use it quite a lot.

Hi, unfortunately I am a complete amateur when it comes to this. I am able to follow a guide however. Just a couple of questions please if anyone can help. Firstly what software do i need for this? And where can I get it?
Secondly if you have a small head on collision as I have, does the cables burn out hence need replacing?
How do i know if my bonnet hinges/actuators need replacing?
Also has anybody been able to do this and if so are you close to Oxford as could really do with some help, will obviously cover your time.
Thanks guys
