  1. Golf New To The Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Onto or second Golf. So thought it was time to join up. The new golf is a 1.5TI EVO 150 R LINE. So far very impressed with it, lots of features our old 1.6 blue motion didn’t have. If you see a 19 plate in the Argyll area of the West Coast of Scotland, it could be me !
  2. VW CC Technical Forum
    My 2012 CC started making a "groaning" noise when Im turning the wheel to park. Not when moving so I don't believe it a CV joint. Could this be the upper strut mount bushing?

    I need to replace an inner CV boot or the short shaft on a 96 Automatic Jetta. I've done them many times on a standard transmission with no problem. Can't remove the short shaft because the joint is too big for the hole. Looks like I need to drop the transmission to make room. Any suggestions?

    What is best for removing grease from an CV joint. I've used kerosene and feel there might be something better. Turpentine?
  5. Passat Owners Club
    Hi, Our 2003 Passat Wagon's front passenger interior door handle broke and wondering is it fixable or do I need to replace the entire panel? The handle fully broke off at both joints I have seen kits online, but don't want to buy unless I know can actually replace. Thanks
