is there a thread on how to remove a Bentley tire?

I see the tool to remove the B, but how do you remove the inner housing to get to the lug nuts.

Thanks and sorry id this is a silly question. I would rather ask then break something.

jc_333 will become famous soon enough
Pull off the "B" cap then its two torx bits to remove the inner housing.

Remember to put the car into "jack mode" before jacking it up. Press suspension and car height button simultaneously and screen will show when its active.

When prying open the remote to change battery
Use the tool they provide in the trunk to remove the centre caps

It's nice and thin and works nice without causing damage to the plastic on the remote

I keep a vgate scan vs450 in my car at all times, cheap little unit from china works good,


For better reading get vcds and a cable I got mine from uk full working version with cable for 80, but it's not a authentic cable and you get no support from the company, but it was temporary

First, pull the fuse #11 from the fuse box located in the driver side boot on top of the battery.

Next, get the Vag can bus scanner or ('v-checker' from ebay).

last, go to menu #19 from the scanner, hit coding, type in 0000006.

TA-DA~ light is gone!

Make sure you always check the tire pressure and enjoy!!
I tried this with my V-checker Pro V202 and it works! Many thanks to djjoonie

Please see the location for the location of the TPMS fuse to remove below.

Does anyone know how to use VAGCOM to disable the rear aerofoil or remove the aerofoil light on the dash if I remove the fuse for it?

Please note I have my personal reasons for disabling the rear aerofoil on my car. I figured out how to disable the aerofoil light on the dash. All you have to do is disconnect the connector going to the aerofoil motor (located between carpet and trunk lid) and then jump a wire from the No. 10 (rear aerofoil warning) and No. 4 (ground) locations on the connector. All the locations are labeled on the connector so you can't get it wrong. For safety reasons, I recommend putting a 1 amp fuse on the jumper wire.

I believe this works because when you disconnect the connection from the aerofoil motor, you are removing the ground from keeping the light off. The light needs a ground in order to keep the dash light off. Please see the attached electrical drawing for more info.
