Hi Mac,

I have no idea if forum software can be configured to make the register only visible to logged in members, I expect so but that would not be up to me. As it stands it will be public but it will not contain confidential information beyond the general location of a member.

You do raise a good point though.

If the request for help could only be made via Club PM, that would effectively make it members only.

Great idea, I will have a a full fat version of VCDS sat waiting for me when I’m back in the country - once I’ve learnt how to use it I will gladly offer the scan service to those in need as a way of giving back to this fine community.

I wouldn’t want to start playing around with codes until I’d properly learnt the ropes on my own car though!!!
Good Afternoon,

Glorious day here in the UK.

I have little expertise with VCDS, you don't need it at the simple scan for faults level. When you get your copy of VCDS you will see at the top level menu there is an AutoScan button, turn ignition on click the button and VCDS scans and reports on all sub systems, it takes about three minutes, that is all that is needed here.

Sign up now, you can add a comment .'Available from Autmn 2020'.

Hi Mac,

Yes, that how it will work, I did explain this in an earlier draft of the invitation but took it out thinking I would be adding too much detail in the initial post. To be clear any member wanting to take advantage of a free scan sends a PM to the selected member offering a free scan, and takes it from there, no 'central' involvement.

Members only then, hope you sign up.

I would be happy to help with this, but I’d need to get my counterfeit cable working again as my Hexnet is limited to 10 vehicles

Thank you to all who have volunteered so far, not a bad start for the initial weekend of recruitment to the register.

Obviously the more volunteers the better, a great way to help out members, think about offering, give something back, meet members and chat about our cars.

I stress no expertise is expected beyond offering a free scan at your convenience.

Andy

Edit. Reminder, to sign up for the register reply to the RSVP above post 1 on page 1.
