How do you disable the alarm on Skoda Fabia?
Turn the key to the locking position on the door lock once to lock the car when locking up. You will hear 4 (or 2 double) clicks. The car has been locked and armed. You should see a red light flashing on the driver's door. Do NOT hold the key in that position. This will cause all the windows to roll up (locking) or roll down (unlocking), so release the key to the neutral position. Turn the key to lock once again and release. You will hear a click, and the red light will stop flashing. The car has been disarmed.

My Fabia estate has a orange sign which lights on switch on and goes out after car diagnostic check prior to engine start. The steering has an electric powered system. I would suggest if light remains on a fault in power steering and for safety sake get a Skoda dealer to check

Hi! Try google, on briskoda forum there is an answer for that! simply seal the door using roof and gutter sealant, even better http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Km9Hi6P1bU
That symbol is the engine immobiliser. You cannot start the car without a GENUINE Skoda Fabia key.
If you mean the air filter housing, the one with the oil filler coming through it, it just pulls off. There are no screws, bolts or clips, so just lift firmly at each corner until it comes free of its mounting studs and the air intake, and then detach the one rubber tube connecting it to the engine… and put carefully aside. You should probably put a clean cloth in the mouth of the air intake to prevent any debris entering the engine. This is the case with my 2003 Skoda Fabia 1.4 16v Jonathan ( Full Answer )
it's under the battery - you can just see it poking out at the front side of the battery. you really need to move the battery to give you enough room to unscrew it.the power steering design is unusual so make sure you know what you are doing-the pump is expensive!

The white steering wheel (orange in some models) indicate thatthere could be a problem with the power steering unit which isbattery driven. If your main car battery is ok get the unit checkedout. If you do find you have lost power steering do not immediatelygo to the garage, give the front bumper a …kick (obviously not fullforce) this can clean the bushes in the motor (dust builds upinside and can cause a failure) The light itself can be reset via a computer diagnostic so checkout an independant garage as a Skoda dealer would probably cost youa new motor (expensive) plus labour! Hope that has been of some use. ( Full Answer )

I only have the answer for the rear lights. I hold this info from the technical workshop manual I had to buy in order to find out. Still beats being ripped off by the local garage... . Before you do anything, please ensure you wear insulated gloves as you may come in contact with live wires. .

Unscrew it and carefully remove tail light from the body of the car. Now disconnect the main connector that links all the bulbs to the rest of the car. You can now safely remove the bulb from the casing and replace it. When doen, reconnect the connector and run trhough these instructiosn in reverse order. . Bulb references : . Light bulb for turn signal : PY21W 12V 21W . Left side Light bulb for fog light/right side light bulb for reversing light : P21W 12V 21W . Light bulb for tail light : PY21W 12V 21W .

Yes it has the immobiliser and the corresponding key on the instrument cluster appears and dissapears in 5secs. I suspect issue with a relay/solenoid based contact which is actuating the Self motor. . Looks like your battery is not charging up properly. If jump start works, then I don't think there… is any problem with starter motor, wiring or immobilizer, I maybe wrong too. Checking the charge in the battery will rule that out. We can then look at other angles. . May be something as simple as a starter motor wiring loose contact. Get it checked ASAP. Does it have an immobiliser with a coded key? If yes, then that may also be the problem. But I would start with basics like the starter motor.. ( Full Answer )

I just had this on my skoda fabia 1.2 , I found that it was the Outer c/v joints on the drive shaft , this is easily repaired as you can get the whole c/v joint kits from about Â£25 each from somewhere like euro car parts etc. Or it might be just a split in the c/v joint boot whitch can easily be …replaced and packed with grease again costing less than a whole joint .

You may have to replace the expansion tank (the globe with the blue cap) which is part of the cooling system as it has a sensor built into it - and this may be faulty. Before replacing check that the coolant level is topped up and that the expansion tank isn't a horrible brown colour. If it is, it w…ould suggest that your radiator could be failing (rusting through) and seeping water overnight. ( Full Answer )

If your skoda is 1999-2007 then long story short: Open the window fully, take off the door panel (3 little bolts in the bottom of the door panel, 3 big bolts behind the door handle (the one you hold when you close the door from inside), one little bolt behind the electric wing mirrors control kn…ob, everything else is held by clips). carefully unplug some of the shorter wires connected to the panel so that you could put it on the ground rather then having someone hold it. take off the small triangular piece that covers the mirrors bolts from inside. unplug the mirrors wires, unscrew the bolt while holding the mirror and pull it out. When you put on a new mirror everything is pretty much backwards. Good luck ( Full Answer )
