a temporary fix is to leave a tape in the tape player, sounds weird but it works! it probably needs a refurb although I have heard somewhere about people replacing a unit behind the stereo costs about Â£130 and that apparently fixes it, but I dont know exactly what the part is, you might be better off actually speak to a SEAT garage apart which part it is as its quite a common problem with the mk3's
You can get it done for Â£47 inc VAT & return postage, all you have to do is contact them to make sure they can refurbish your H/U and then post it!!
They aim to get it back to you in 10 working days.
