    What brakes apply when using auto hold

    I must admit I rarely if ever use the handbrake, over the last 15 years or so of having autos I've always left the handbrake brake off. I use auto hold occasionally, maybe a couple of times a week. The Mrs uses the handbrake in her autos but throughout the recent pandemic I've made sure it's off.

    What brakes apply when using auto hold

    Yes, from memory you need to depress the brake pedal before it will activate.

    Insurance claim advice

    I reported an incident last year I captured on dashcam, I followed it up with a complaint because of no contact from them. I received a call from a Sergeant who was very nice and went on to explain (off the record) as we were chatting that on the particular day in question they had something like 19 officers on duty covering the whole of the district, 4 were tied up at an arson where someone had died, 2 were @ a serious RTA etc. I was miffed as they promote the public doing there job for them etc. and the footage I sent was clear, concise and had damning evidence of a crime but I guess they just have to prioritise. I have no issue with them prioritising things and dealing with the more serious crimes as opposed to inured assets (cars/vans) In fact I've just had email from the SYP alerts thing asking which 2 things I would vote for to be prioritised out of the below!! So I understand they can only do so much.

    Insurance claim advice

    Yes it is and we use Android with metadata but the technician had turned off the location function (long story, dealt with)

    Insurance claim advice

    I had an identical scenario with a driver @ work, in London hit from behind, my driver swapped details and took photo's of the damage. Our insurer got in touch to say the driver denied it and even denied being there and as the photo was just a close up of the front of his van with the number plate there was little/no damage to it so they said it was insufficient to proceed. Ended up costing us c£1k

    F07 Pano Sunroof Sunscreen Failure

    I'd check your fuses as a first port of call. Then check they've not disturbed the wiring, maybe even ask them to check. Hopefully it's a simple fix.
  11. That's an issue, I tried lots of things to no avail including ferrite clamps and thick shielded power cable, the camera itself bleeds rf ime.
  12. I routed down to the fuses or the back of the cig lighter, I can't remember which. I also changed the screws to black pan heads, looked much less obtrusive but tbf no one ever saw it.
  13. Totally unnoticeable when I removed them.
  14. Yes I did, there should be a thread on it somewhere. Put it away from the loading area and it was fine quality and coverage wise. Some pics below...
