Can someone help!!

Does anyone know how you can use your key fob to set off your alarm when pointing it at the car??

its not available on our cars Michelle, the american market has another red button on the fob to do exactly that, but we don't sorry

I seem to think on my old mk4 1.8T if I held the lock or unlock button for a certain time it would set the alarm off

If you do that on a mk5 it just opens and shuts the windows/sunroof

Oooh I see fair enough!

Some little fat kid stole 2 of my R line dust caps for his bike... I bought some more and used the anti theft things (couldnt be bothered before) and today the same kids are eyeing them up again... they didnt cost alot and they cant steal them now but would love to watch them try and then set the alarm off to make them shit their fat pants!


Damn!

The cost of them isn't here or there its the principal right?, (little fat kid, good description
)
the anti theft ones are much better but just be careful, as sometimes if you don't take them on and off for a while the thread can cease up and they can be a nightmare to get off.

As mentioned above, with aluminium dust caps, they can seize due to dissimilar metals especially over the winter. A little copper grease on the thread helps.
