As iam new in using the skoda don't know about all the "bells and whistles".

when i press the second button ie one near the the tachometer,nothing happens,in fact it cant be pressed,seems like its stuck.
And also what about the buttons on the left lever?

14k for the set. And, I don't think they'll sell you individually. I'm not sure how long the new set will last though. In my car, one coil is gone and I have to get a whole new set.

The button on steering ( left lever) is the cruise
Control. To set it on. Reach to a desired speed. Make the switch to on position and press set( side of lever)
Yo switch off, change gear, brakr ot put it to off through lever

To restore to set speed, simply slide to res.

The button on speedo is not for preesing but rotating in both directions to set up the time

P.s. Hey thats my car :-)

When you turn it in one direction , it will move the hour and when you move in the other , it will move the minute.

For watching this, select the time in the information display , by pressing up , down on the wiper stalk. ( right most part of the stalk)

Hafi, that "button" is pretty hard. Takes a bit of pressure to turn, and it won't TURN per se. It has a spring type action. Before setting the time, reset the whole thing. The reset button is on the wiper stalk.

It aint necessary to change the time although you may.
Turn the button a bit hard.
It is hard.

Also. Check out the manual for more assistance.
