    Hello, Having trouble with my wifes 2012 Jetta 2.5 SE. It just die randomly, engine, lights, everything and then just start back up again no problem. No codes or service engine light.

  2. TIGUAN OWNERS CLUB
    Hi, I have the above car. It has just started to make a weird noise and seems to be getting more frequent. The noise happens when accelerating from a stop for the first few seconds, more if I am also turning left. It doesn’t seem to happen until the car is fully warmed up. It sounds like it is...

    Hi I have a 2001 Jetta GL 2.0l gas 5 speed with 190k. It makes a loud whining sound when in 5th gear @ 3600 rpm's... Only at that range.. Not at 34,35,37, or 38 or after. It sounds like I needs another gear. I've replaced plugs-bosh platinum +4, ngk wires, new coil, air filter, fuel filter...

    2007 Rabbit, 5 cylinder, 2.5 L. I,ve had two blowers put in and still having same problem. The blower fans makes all the sounds from fan speed 1 through 4. However, the air barely comes out of any of the vents. When the air is not coming out the vents the blower fan noise is near the cabin...
  5. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I have a 10 year old Rabbit. New tires fitted 2017. After 2018 service incl wheel rotation the drivers side front tire makes a 'thwacking' noise on newly laid or wet pavement - no other time. Wheels have been rotated again and still get the noise. It is not bearings or calipers. Can anyone...

    My 82 rabbit's brakes are doing some abnormal things: Brake light turns on when I brake, and recently the light stays on indefinitely regardless of braking. Stopping distance has increased dramatically, to where it is no longer safe to drive. Spongy brake pedal hits the floor with little...
  7. Passat B7 Forums
    Hi, just joined in the hope of getting some information. I have a 2014 Passat Estate 2.0 TDI that I tow with. The manual says that the stop/start should be off when towing, but doesn't say why. I contacted VW for more explanation, and all they said was it's due to the extra weight and load...
  8. Beetle Owners Club
    I have a 2015 Diesel Beetle. The wheel rims collect dirt after car washes and going through mud. It makes the wheels out of balance and it shimmies something awful. You have to stop at the car wash to clean them out and it’s a bit of a pain. Does anyone know of rims I could replace them with...
  9. CC Owners Club
    I have Passat CC R-line 2012 and having a problem of hard steering and couple of lights on dashboard. Description is as below. Everything was fine couple of weeks back. However, I changed lower arm bushes and all 4 tyres and thought to go for alignment which makes everything worst. 1...

    A customer of mine gave me her husbands 1981 Rabbit pickup with a 1.7 Gas motor in it. I am a VW fan and this makes the third addition to the family. I determined right away that it did not have spark and was able to find a faulty ignition module. the replacement came and was a little...
  12. Passat Owners Club
    What 0w-20 oils meet VW's 508.00 requirements? I recently bought a 2018 Passat and am wondering what brand 0w-20 oils meet the so called specs from VW? The manual says 508.00 (not 502 which I put in the title). I cant find any bottle at the store that says anything about it. All I see are...

    1980 Rabbit, York compressor: Some 15-20 years ago, heater core sprang leak. Not wanting to tackle the job at that time, I used "stop leak" which seems to have actually held up since then. Some 10-15 years ago, the actuator started acting up. It works OK when it's warm but on cold days, it...
  15. Beetle Owners Club
    Does anybody know of a company that makes/ made a hardtop for a 1979 Super Beetle? I would really like a metal one if possible. I know the soft top is sturdy and weatherproof but I would like a hardtop for when I am touring and have to leave the dear old thing out in city strrets overnight. I...
  16. CC Newbs / CC FAQs
    I just recently got myself a 1 owner with 70k on it all maintenance done at Local VW. Loving the car. Now I was advised that I should think about replacing the Timing Chain Tensioner? I called my mechanic and he said he doesn't recommend changing that until maybe around 120k miles on it. I don't...

    Rebuilt my 1.7L and put the engine in the car before installing the headers. Upon trying to install the headers, they seem to be positioned such that they are contacting the steering rack bracket. I thought perhaps an engine alignment would remedy this but its still touching. I am thinking that...
  18. Jetta / Bora MK4 / 1999-2004
    I wanted a Chevy I bought this, I have had nothing but problems all have been fixable but we can not figure out why after 35 or more miles it will all the sudden pop into neutral and can only drive in 2nd gear. I then have to pull over and wait generally a half hour to 45 minutes before I can...

    1. I can't open the door, pulling the inside door handle makes the lock button lift but simultaneously pulling up the button and pulling the handle fails to release the locking mechanism. (Needless to say - the central locking has already failed to release it by this time.) 2. Has anyone taken...
