    The outer pads wore a lot faster than the inners, the one with the sensor had heaps to go.
    Things were very noisy for the last 6 weeks.

    Yep just wind it enough to fit the new pads.

    I'll be having a look this weekend.
    Need to find that TCM, think it might be hiding up in the passenger side wheel well, which will be a bitch to get to.

    Use the physical key to unlock, you may need to remove a small trim piece first to expose the lock depending on your model.
    Turn it a lot further than your probably expect, it should unlock.

    I have them on my Jetta, only in front doors. My racks have a pin that locates into them, on a Tiguan I suppose they are pointless as you would be using bars on the existing roof rails.
