any advice would be appreciated. I recently got a PCL Octavia FSI and the radio info display lcd is crap. What can i do? is the LCD replaceable? or the entire display? any part numbers? Tried searching on Skodaparts .com but not seeing it.

Banzai.
You would have to take out the audio system and you should see the part number. If the display is fubar, then you would have to replace it.

@purple_heart77...it can be coded via vcds to accept if any medium of highline yeti came with led from factory...I think I recalled seeing it in the 2012 canbus gateway I retrofitted into my 2006 Octavia back when I had it..

Banzai...u can replace headunit with newer bolero headunit as I did...refurbs on ebay.co.uk are cheaper now than it was back then...dont forget to get newer canbus gateway...or I resell a device which bypasses old gateway to prevent battery drain by the bolero headunit

So after a long while of not working, my reverse sensor system started working again all by itself.

Hello Banzi
were you able to get the part number or find out if the display only can be changed?
Reason I'm asking, is that I also have that problem with my Octavia 2

thanks

I used 225/40/18...it can take 20inch but ensure to stay within rolling radius of stock wheel size.

Google wheel size calculator for comparos

thanks Eco, i want to stay with the 16 rims for now, but want some height, as sometimes it touches when going over humps, you think 225 60 16 would touch with load in the back

I got my last 3 pairs off of amazon-out of Hong Kong

At the time (2015) they were 15 USD per pair.

Slapped them on and they still going.....no issues with any of the 3 pairs Ive bought-all from the same supplier/seller
I just checked and while the supplier has none-there are others offering the wipers at 15 USD.

I replaced the rubber on the wipers this AM

The driver side is 24 inch -$20 -Gently pull the rubber out with the 2 metal strips in place.
The Skoda wipers also allow the rubber to be pulled out-5 min and you done.

40 and you have new wiper blades.
