Well done, sharknose6. Thanks for updated info, and I will modify the pdf.

Great news to hear of someone finally working on a Bentley Continental GT. I realise that they are not "DIY friendly", but maybe now we'll get more DIY advice.

Keep up the good work, and please keep us posted.....Geo3.

By the way, just found this great Bentley technical information site, but cannot view it correctly, as I am on a Mac. Windows users should be OK.

Seems to more like an "on-line" Bentley workshop manual.

Im looking to reset my service now light on my Bentley.

I tried this sequence on my 05 gt and it didn't work or at least I couldn't get the message to appear on the display. I tried it all kinds of ways.

Has anyone tried this on an 05 gt?

Resetting Service Light
1. Ensure the ignition is switched off.
2. Hold down the trip button.
3. Switch the ignition on and release the trip button.
4. A message appears in the DIP with the wording SERVICE RESET .
5. Press the OK button on the steering wheel.
6. The message will now disappear.
7. To check the procedure has worked correctly. Switch the ignition off, switch the ignition back on again. The service warning light should have disappeared.

Thanks

Mike

Shark,

Maybe you could go into detail with me so I can see what im doing wrong? Here goes,

Resetting Service Light
1. Ensure the ignition is switched off. "I have the key in the ignition but not turned"
2. Hold down the trip button. "same"
3. Switch the ignition on and release the trip button. " I turn the key clockwise 1 click and release the button, the car doesn't start in this position" "I don't see anything happen like step 4 says"
4. A message appears in the DIP with the wording SERVICE RESET .
5. Press the OK button on the steering wheel.
6. The message will now disappear.
7. To check the procedure has worked correctly. Switch the ignition off, switch the ignition back on again. The service warning light should have disappeared.

Shark

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes I believe the trip button works, when I press it normally I see my trip stats and all.

Very odd, I must have tried this 10 times.

Bentley Ignition coils

In your PDF, you list the VW ignition coil part#: 06B 905 115E. Are you confident this VW/Audi part will work in a 2005 Bentley Continental GT? I am most grateful for the work you put into the PDF.

Hopefully, members will contribute and post their own Bentley DIY's or even Bentley DIY's from other forums, only if the links to those DIY's are inactive (you can post a link as inactive by unchecking the "automatically parse links in text" box that is just below the text box, before you submit the post).

It is also possible to just copy and paste the DIY from another forum as well.

Let's try to build this into something......Geo.

P.S. Many thanks to GT3 Chuck, for all his advice.

PMS< hopefully GEO3 chimes in.

FYI: Checked my Bentley assist and the Bentley part number seems to be 07C905100. According to Bently's site, "Special tool required for removal T10094 - CAN BE FITTED TO ALL EARLIER CARS IN CAR SETS".

Thank you for the part numbers. I'm checking to see what Bentley wants for the coils. (shudder).

Should be same as Audi and VW, because Bentley/Audi/VW all suffered from a bad batch of them.

Thanks for your continuing insights. Since it is a considerable amount of work to get to the ignition coils, I want to make sure I get the appropriate part. I'd hate to have to re-do the install (or worse yet, bugger up the motor).
