    I am a 28 year veteran of long haul tractor trailer experience. I have never used electric brakes before, and have purchased a 2018 Atlas. I will be mainly pulling a travel trailer around BC, so it will be mountainous conditions. As I am used to air brakes, what are the differing factors when...
  5. Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Went to the petrol station today to fill up and found that the filler cover won't open! As far as I can tell it is a problem that it has not actually unlocked, rather than that it has unlocked but is stuck on the 'press to open' catch. The Owner Manual says that it can not be opened manually...

  7. Tiguan New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    I just picked up a 2019 Tiguan S with 4Motion last night. Excited to be back in a Volkswagen. I loved by 2011 Jetta TDI but my family outgrew it, so it was traded for a minivan awhile back. I was in the market for a small suv and my dealership experience when negotiating was great! Glad I...
  8. Passat Owners Club
    Hey there, I'm new to VW, but am 52 and a Mechanic/Shop owner for ever. I'd like to post some pics on here of the teardown etc... because I've received a really nice car, in trade for a 280k Accord, so he could get a job. He couldn't afford a timing job on his low mile 03 Passat Sedan W8. I'm...
  9. GTI MK2 / 1985-1992
    HI Everyone, I have a 16V and would like to get the engine cleaned up of all the grease and gunk. I have been toying with the idea of getting it steam cleaned for ages but always been put off by stories of the electrics getting messed up. However i guess some people must do it in order to get...
  10. Golf MK4 / 1999-2002
    Anyone have any experience with this? The alarm was armed and would not disarm when the car door was unlocked and the engine started. The alarm would go off and ultimately I had to disconnect the battery to get it to stop. The FOB seems to have no effect now. Put new batteries in it, but not...

    Hello, I'm new to the forum and recently just bought my first Volkswagen, a 2019 GTI Rabbit Edition in Cornflower Blue with DSG. It is an awesome car. Recently discovered a strange buzzing noise in the rear passenger wheel well after the car is turned off. It sounds like a small air...

  14. TIGUAN OWNERS CLUB
    Hey Everybody, I'm new to the forum and a happy owner of a new 2018 Tiguan SE w/3rd row. I'm in Boston, MA, USA. Anyone have advice on getting a 2 inch trailer hitch installed? The dealer tells me they can't do it. I'm wary of U-Haul as the ones I've seen don't have a clean look when...

    2012 Jetta 2.5 SEL Automatic transmission. I looked and couldn't find a thread on this. Tonight I was on my way to work on the highway. Really bad weather. Was doing 60 in the left lane. Had just finished a phone call and checked a text. And for some stupid reason, I accidentally hit the car's...

  18. Jetta Owners Club
    Hey all, I have been doing a decent amount of research and have decided to go with removing my vacuum pump and installing the Spulen Ultimate Vacuum Pump Delete block and hoses. My vacuum pump is leaking and it seems to be a better and cheaper fix than just replacing the pump. I am just looking...
  19. General Volkswagen Discussion
    Hello everyone,, I am in the process of converting/retrofitting my 1984 Quantum to AWD, and I know that the 'Syncro" system was offered on Quantum in 1986, as well as some other VW models. That system uses viscous coupling for the center differential. Since my car came with the Audi 5-cyl...
