    This is - of course - what happens 10 minutes after booking an MOT. They know...

    Yup…. Mine did the same a few weeks back. Booked and the bulb out warning came on.

    2 weeks prior I was trying to sell a car and the tyre warning light pops up 2 mins from the meeting place.

    They know!!

    He's shown no gratitude for having a shiny new windscreen fitted last week :rolleyes:

    I'll give it a scan tomorrow, but I'd bet at least one sock it's the right-hand rear wheel sensor or reluctor. The left hand one took early retirement last year.

    You should have known.. if one side goes, the other isn't far off.
    I really liked the Peugeot version where the rust builds up under the rear ABS sensor and lifts it up until it misses the magnet ring.. the fix was a hammer and chisel on the rust.

    Might get away with a new sensor, but on the Golfs a common cause is rust'n'crust building up on the reluctor ring. Bits of it may actually fall off.

    Remedy is to change the whole hub assembly. Do I trust a cheap and cheerful GSF hub? We'll see...

    Have you ever nipped in for a bap? They're very nice, apparently.

    Following a new crank, seals, bearings, rings and a whole load of additional grief after I nipped it up and then had to strip it back down again last week:rolleyes:, today was a nice day to put the first new miles on.

    Several hundred will be required at half throttle opening.

    And then it rained
