  2. Limp mode

    Jetta / Bora MK5 / 2005–2010
    Hey guys So a couple of days ago my car went into limp mode after driving around. The gears on the dashboard started flashing and it was stuck in 3rd gear. I wasn't even able to reverse the car. Eventually it shuts off and the only way for it to start again is to let it cool down. I can drive...

    Hello, I'm a "newbee" to the air cooled VW world. Quick question: How do I remove the glove box? I've removed the front door, unscrewed the upper latching device, found a couple of side screws, but I can't seem to remove the inner box. Anything I've missed? Thanks (1st Bug).
  5. Question on Cecille - 2018 orange Tiguan SE - seat memory/hopeful

    Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    Good morning! I've looked through the manual, and I'm HOPING I'm wrong, but I don't believe there is seat memory for the SE? If anyone can tell me differently, I'd be pretty happy! It's such a SILLY thing, but when my husband drives, he puts the seat back and sideways! I...
  6. CIS stall mystery

    General Volkswagen Discussion
    My 1981 truck has been stalling when the engine reaches temp recently. When I try to start it again, the fuel pump doesn't kick in. If I wait 15 or 20 minutes, it will usually start again, but only until the engine reaches temp again. I'm thinking the coil, the warm pressure regulator, or? I...

    hmm . . . I posted this a couple of days ago, but it seems to have vanished. I am looking for the metal trim that is embedded in the rubber that goes around the passenger door window of a 1985 two-door golf. No luck with ECS Tuning or Orchid Euro. Does anybody have any brilliant ideas?

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    My truck won't start after overcharging the battery. I changed the voltage regulator/alternator and the ICM. It still won't start. How would I check the coil?

    Has anyone experienced a failure of their SiriusXM radio to load due to an antenna fault code? If so, what have you done? Do you know how to get to your antenna lead without going to the dealer where they want to charge $135 to start and upwards of $650 to find and repair said lead? Radio...

    After a "minor" bump the driver's door mirror cover has dropped off. Not quite - but it is loose.
