    The car is now at 90.5k miles, when i first purchased it the car was at 72k miles. The only mods on the car is a cold air intake, coilovers and rims. The slipping started around 80k miles, after it slips and the rpms shoot up as it is coming back down (not accelerating at all) the car will jerk...

    I just went over 101K and my car is running flawlessly. Always has been a stellar performer, and it has been a a perfect 10 in the maintenance dept. (although I do keep up on it and take really good care of it) However, once you break the six digit threshold, there is more serious preventative...
  6. MKV Rabbit FAQs & Newbies
    I am perplexed in trying to trouble shoot the clutch on my 2008 MKV Rabbit. :o The pedal recently lost a lot of its resistance. It now it engages pretty far out. Initially, I thought it may be the master cylinder. I checked both the master cylinder and slave cylinder and No leaking. The...

    Can someone check and let me know if the license plate lights are part of the wiring harness that feeds the headliner lamps? Had my headliner replaced and now I have a "Bulb Out" warning light. Looks like the license plate bulbs are not working but bulbs are good. Suspect they forgot to plug...
  9. MKV How-to's and DIY's
    Anywhere that shows how to repair a ribbon cable? Doing my headliner on my mkv rabbit, and one is torn. I see others have rewired and some have soldered but I don’t see any diy. Anyone?!

    Hi all: Have an 07 rabbit 4D that I bought used. It had an aftermarket set of HIDs installed that have been giving me nothing but trouble. Sometimes neither side will light - a day later, no problem again! (Starting to wonder if it's actually a switch or the central electronics, but still...

    I bought a used 07 Rabbit and it has some aftermarket, xenon headlights that are giving me trouble... 1) Occasionally they actually just decide not to turn on at all. Like both sides. Seems random, but I can turn the ignition off and wait a while then start the car again and they'll work...

    Hi All, hoping someone might have some advice here. The windows, door locks, mirror, and mirror turn signal on the passenger side doors are all dead. The door open switch also does not turn on the lights. Everything on the driver's side is 100% except being able to control the passenger side...

    I replaced the fuel pump in my 2007 (2.5 gas) about 10,000 miles ago. I did go with an aftermarket version. After several dealership visits and several $$$ to get pressure/filter straight it finally seemed to get sorted. Has been running just fine but the last few weeks I'm starting to get the...

    Anyone ever do the headliner in a 2007? I have a hand me down with just 30,000 miles on it but it sat outside in VA heat and most of the fabric is pretty sagging. It looks like a nasty bit of work as a DIY and it also looks like $$$$ to have it done professionally. Any thoughts? Thanks
  16. VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    As anyone ever sorted the locking system on a 2007 Rabbit? I have a hand me down car with just 30,000 miles on it but it has it share of problems. First and most annoying is that the only way you can lock it is with the fob. The other related issue is that it locks all the doors sort of at...

    Need to know the Location of Vehicle Speed Sensor on an 07 Jetta 2.5. I can't seem to find it as it's not in the traditional location(s) of other vehicles. Any help would be appreciated as I have Christmas lights in April on my dash for just about everything.

    Greetings; My 2008 Rabbit got a grinding noise only when clutch is applied, when released is gone. Already replace the DMF with a solid one and all of it’s components. It got a little bit silenced but still there. Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi there, my names Montana Morris, I own a 2008 MKV GTI. I’ve been researching intakes and exhausts for about the last year now and was wondering what other things should I expect to purchase before I can install said parts? A friend of mine owns a Mazda3 and said he had to buy Cobb access ports...

    Hi gang, I'm new to the club and need some advice. I actually posted a reply to a thread by Thelastrabbit? a while ago but haven't heard back. I have an '07 MKV 4 dr. (or I think it's called a 5 dr 'cause of the hatch?) Anyway, recently all the dash gear lights light up (ie: PRND12) after 20-30...
