Hi,
In identifying which side noisy front wheel bearing to change on my car and running my C3 1.0 vtr on a jack it now seems I have an engine managament light on. Previously all was good and no lights on at all so I just believe the electrics just didn't like what I was doing and have now thrown a wobbly!
On initial start after the running on a jack I had power steering lights,ABS warning lights and Airbag lights on but they all went off after a metres of running the car but the engine management light has now stayed on and doesn't go off.
So..
1. How do I get rid of the engine management warning light? ( The car runs fine incidently)
2. I have an OBD11 tester from a previous VW vehicle. Do you think I can erase the warning light with this? I assume the plug/socket is universal.
3. Can you tell me the location of the socket to plug the OBD11 in to on my 2014 C3 1.0 vtr please?

Thanks,
