  1. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I have a 2008 Rabbit, and it's been a great car. It has about 210K miles on it, so in no way is it perfect, but it's in pretty good shape. A few dents and dings, nothing major, the interior is ok, again not great, as the headliner has given up it's ability to stay up against the roof. The...

  3. 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...

  5. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hi all, I have been running Castrol 20w50 since we bought the car in 2016 and I am thinking of switching to Shell Rotella T4 15w40. I notice on cold starts the car runs a little rough and we seem to get smoke out of the tailpipe that we didn't have for the first few years. After it warms up for...
  6. Air-cooled / FAQs
    Just found your site; I have owned my 74 "orange" Love Bug since new. Purchased during the fuel crisis of 1973...traded my Olds 442 for it. I live in Texas, so stopped driving it in 1980 when we had a string of 40+ 100 degree days. I retired in 2016 and decided it was time to "un-retire" the...
  7. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    a few years back I replaced my struts and mounts, and I made the terrible mistake of replacing my springs, thinking that the 30 year old ones would be getting soft enough by now to be worth replacing. now I have a broken driver side spring, and Im considering replacing it with my old spring, as...

    I recently scraped my VW Bora 2004 1.9 TDi 90 pas, but still have a roof rack and the spare wheel centre tool kit. I am moving in 4 days time so need these out of my Garage by then. I live in Nottingham UK. If anyone wants these and can collect call me on 0794 171 5743 (John) to arrange. No...
  9. VW Tiguan Technical
    So glad to have found this group! As the header says, I bought my 2019 SE Tiguan on Monday. One thing we noticed is when I open the driver's door, there is a motorized sound for about 5 seconds that seems to be coming from the rear of the vehicle as though something is adjusting. Anyone have...
  10. MK1 Rabbit Engine
    I've been trying to trouble shoot this vehicle for the past few days and it's been a headache. I'm also having issues getting it tagged that's why it sat for so long and I can no longer park it where it currently sits. So far I've established that glow plugs are getting power and fuel shut off...
  11. Passat New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Hi all. I am buying a 2009 (59) reg Passat 2.0 Highline auto estate and take delivery in the next few days. The car has water inside the drivers side headlamp assembly and I wonder if this is repairable or does it need replacing? The lights work, it just spoils the look of the car. Also should I...
  12. TDI General Discussion
    Hello, I’m a 75 year old car guy who no longer cares to crawl around under my cars. I’d be coming from a well maintained, no over its 125k warranty, no drama 2013 4Runner. I’m strongly considering a 2015-16 Touareg TDI CPO for better on road manners and long distance touring. I’d like to...
  13. Golf MK2 / 1983-1992
    Just curious about clutch life all of you are getting. I just replaced my original mk2 clutch two days ago as the pushrod finally pushed through the clutch plate. This is 100km shy of 400,000 km. I guess that now I have replaced the clutch I shod get at least 300,000 more on the car. Well if...
  14. Golf MK2 / 1983-1992
    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?
  15. 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...

  17. GTI MK7 / 2015 and up
    Just picked up a few days ago and found the gauge function. Does the difference in temps seem to be a little far apart? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Passat B7 Forums
    No AC and was told had gas in but compressor was done for so got new one fitted & gassed up, 2 days leaked & stopped & since had it filled & loadsa dye put in by a specialist and it's leaked out twice more but there's no traces of dye to be found anywhere so looks like it's gotta be filled with...
  19. MK1 Rabbit Engine
    Hi there. The repair shop wanted to charge a fortune to repair my 92 cabby's choking engine. (replace deteriorated PCV valve and intake hose ) I figured I'd tackle it myself. Although hoses are available on ebay, it seems nearly impossible to find PCV valves these days. Any suggestions?
  20. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Had my brakes fixed at the shop a few weeks ago ('80 1.5 Diesel), but noticed I had to start pushing the brake pedal all the way to the firewall again the last few days. The reservoir was nearly empty, so I suspected another leak somewhere. Took the car back to the shop last night, since they...
