  1. 2008 Sage Green, no power steering, where to sell?

    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...

  4. 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...
  5. Speedometer cable lube recommendations

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I need to lube up the speedometer cable for my 81 rabbit pickup. I had to replace it when I first got the truck. The new one keeps showing the speed as more than what it actually is. For example, I'll be driving 35 mph according to my GPS, but the speedometer shows 55 mph. Someone suggested...

    GTI Photo Gallery
    Hello all. Just joined the club tonight. Thought I would show off my upcoming project. This is my first car I bought brand new in 1983. It’s been sitting in our barn since the early ‘90s. I’m thinking about dragging it out and see if I can be inspired to start a restoration. Wish me luck.

    I just bought a 2019 Tiguan SE 3 weeks ago. An hour ago, when I was driving home with cruise control at 60 mph, I just found an EPC warning light was ON. I did not feel any abnormality on driving. Because I didn't know even what EPC standed for, I googled it after coming back home. I found it...
  12. '86 Cabriolet conversion to power steering (not a right hand drive car)

    MKV Rabbit FAQs & Newbies
    Writing from Vernon. I'm just about finished. The transmission shift rod out of the original car (with the manual steering system) seems to be incorrect for the power rack and pinion system that I installed. It interferes with the rack, and I cannot shift. The Victoria old parts dealer cannot...

    I have noticed on my new 2019 SE the few times after we have folded the driver side mirror in, that the prior adjustment of the mirror was completely changed once we folded it back out. Anyone else have this issue? We frequently fold in the passenger side mirror, but it doesn't seem to come...
