Re: Diamond Cut Wheel Refurb

You're not alone! I had mine (same wheel) refinished and diamond cut two years ago and they recently went again, so I've embarked on the same DIY journey.

Re: How to Enable Street View

There is also one junction on my commute that requires more than 180deg of wheel input to exit but second gear is needed before I get the wheel straightened enough to reset my hand position. That said, all becomes clear ...

Re: Lidl charger

What sort of diagnostics? The service manual calls for a "battery support unit" during some procedures but they are a different beast altogether, capable of a much higher output
