I checked from my SA while getting it fixed. He said the dashboard does not need to be opened. It's just the air vents on it that they tweak. This was done free of cost during my 2nd service I guess.

Finally got the car today morning. Guess what! As rightly suggested by Gannu_1 to check the fuse. It was the culprit and they replaced it. But the bigger question is they charged INR 4242 as labour of contact wire sending harness. Upon questioning the SA Vikram at Giriraj Motors Gurgaon. He said sir we have repaired the wiring harness otherwise the actual cost of harness is INR 2.5 lacs of only one side of the car. I was shocked to see the bill as well as listening to the cost of harness. Anyway, the major concern is that I won't get to know if they actual repaired something in the harness.

This is not a malfunction, the system is working as designed. Kindly go through the owner's manual for details.

There is an option in MFD settings menu to operate right side only or both mirrors together when you keep the selector mode in "R" position. If this menu is missing from the MFD settings menu, it could be done using VCDS. But I think you'll find it in your MFD settings itself.

Thanks to all of you, i was able to get in touch with Sanjay.

The fix is nothing but a jugaad using a square cardboard piece. The same is inserted once the front vents are removed (the front vent + center storage is one piece and pryies out easily)

its a 5 min job and works perfectly.

okay - another issue now spotted, the front driver window is screaching as it goes up or down. I tried all tricks (Beading, WD 40) as i had the Vento earlier. I am not sure if the sound is coming from the guide rails. Its definatly not coming from the winding motor. The sound is also Weather dependent, cooler temperature makes it screach less (or even totally stop screaching) while in sun - it really screached.

After researching - it seems this is a common issue in Laura/Octavia II.

any solutions?

I am also facing the same screeching issue after I got my Laura serviced at Giriraj motors recently. It wasn't there earlier and they are not ready to admit that they did something wrong.

Hi all

Need to change my brake pads in 2010 Skoda Laura 2.0tdi MT(75kms). This is my second change. The last time I got it done it was with the ASS when my car was under warranty.

Now am sending it to a Bosch service center for service and repair. The chief mechanic at the Bosch service centre is sugesting ROLLAND brake pads over Bosch or Delphi.

Have any of you used the above brands on your laura? Do any of you know what the OEM brand is on the Laura? Is it PAGID? If so what do these pads normally cost?
