    Air-cooled Owners Club
    Someone did a good job in replacing the headliner on my 1974 Super Beetle before I bought it. Unfortunately, they covered up the courtesy lights. I know it should have some because both doors have switches in the hinge posts. Can someone post a picture of exactly where the courtesy lights go...

Has anyone had this problem and/or had it covered under warranty? They said it's 'normal' wear and tear. Seems to me it would only be normal if I had it...

  13. Timing belt confirmation

    I have got a Passatt CC 2011, bought recently which has covered 59,000miles. I originally thought that the timing belt was to be changed every 3/4 years or 120,000miles whichever came first.

    TDI General Discussion
    I may be given a Volkswagen Golf TDI 150bhp 6speed motor that's covered 180k. The issue with it is that it's holding back at 80mph. The owner reckons it needs a clutch and MAYBE a new engine but wants to GIVE it to me for nothing as he has just bought a brand new Golf TDI. Can anyone give me...

    Hey everyone! Just purchased a GTI 2009 and was told to chip it!
