    Hello all, Recently purchased a 2009 VW Golf MK6 2.0TDI. I am getting the coil light flashing along with engine management light on.

    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? Would the hall sender in the distributor be suspect after charging at 18v for a couple of days? What damage and to what could result in...

    I am switching many of the bulbs to LED but I am having trouble with the front passenger marker. The left screw keeps on spinning.

  13. Rear bearing KABOOM!

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    To make a long story short... On the way to work this morning I started to feel a shudder. By the time I got to work (over 40 miles) it had gotten bad. As work has a fairly well equipped shop I opted to inspect after clocking out. Needless to say my 84's driver's side rear...inner bearing...

    I'm relatively new to the VW family, having purchased a used 2015 Passat 1.8T Wolfsburg back in February. This morning, unfortuanely after driving it a couple of miles into town, I realized I had a pancaked passenger rear tire. After putting on the spare and carrying it to the local tire guys...

    Top warning light came on while driving; when I got it home the top power control would not move the top.
