    • Excellent, please consider a modest contribution to the site in recognition of the help you have had and the potential expense saved.
    • Hi all,   Background - after a boozy Christmas pub-crawl in Kirkcaldy with friends my wife came to get me in my car to kindly pour me home. :-)     Weeks later I got a letter (as the registered keeper of my car) advising that it was parked in a private car park (Nicol Street, Kirkcaldy) at 7.41pm on 27th December and asking me for £160! (£100 fine and £60 "debt collection fee"). This was the first contact and the car never got a ticket as it was at night and over the Christmas holidays and dark - my wife and I were unaware that this was a private car park and she was only there to collect me.   I ignored it.   Today I received a Demand Before Court Action letter for £160 - only the 2nd bit of correspondence and some 6 and a half months after "the event". They are using Pollock Fairbridge Schiavone solicitors and stating their clients "have not heard from you (me) regarding payment".  I'm the owner of the car but not the driver who put it there so I have indeed never contacted them.   Am I correct in thinking: a) I am under no obligation as the Registered Keeper to respond? b) I am not required to respond as the driver technically commits the offence, not the car? c) I am under no obligation to disclose who was driving? d) They have no right to get my details from the DVLA? e) The Protection of Freedom Act 2012 does not apply in Scotland? f) As a one-off event where no damage was made trespass on this land is not appropriate?   Do I continue to ignore this?   Thanks in advance for any advice.

    • Well done! This is more than likely the end of it, but you should check with the court at some stage that they've officially discontinued.   They can still chase you for the debt, and they might, but you can just ignore. If they were to issue proceedings again, you can refer to this case in your submissions - it won't reflect very well on them if their case is similar to this time. The chances of them trying again are probably slim though.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

I took my car into a Mr. Clutch yesterday as the clutch went. He later informed me that it ws in fact the pedal box that was broken and he repleced it. There is, however, an EPS warning light that has come up on the dash whilst he has had it. He says that it is ok to drive and that I can take it away today if i like.


I have told him that i am not comfortable having to fix the light issue on my own as it has occured whilst in his 'care'.


The light issue is intermitent and tbh, probably isn't an issue, However, it'll probably cost me to get it fixed when i get my MOT.


Where do i stand? what should i do?

Common problem on these same as the golf's! the pedal box snaps just behind the bulk head im a mechanic and done a couple of these to be fair to the bloke who done it its a dashboard out job its highly unlikely he has caused it doin the work he may have had the battery off for a while which has reset ecu and got a wrong reading take battery off for 15 mins plug it back in and see if that cures the problem! Good luck

VW group cars seem to have an unusual fault in which the clutch pedal action gets very heavy when the clutch is worn, which in turn puts extra stress on the pedal box,which is really quite flimsy. I have seen pedal boxes being changed more than once for breakage when the cutch was actually at fault. It is a symptom rather than a fault!


EPS is a power steering fault,whereas ESP is stability control, Many problems with VW group cars are caused by the brake light switch,of which there may be two and are fitted on the pedal box with plastic clips.. Worth checking!
