  2. 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...
  3. General Volkswagen Discussion
    I am asking for any of your experiences of similar issues and fixes please. The story so far, my 2006 2.0 tdi Passat had a full clutch kit including flywheel slave and fluid change, all was fine until she became redundant for a few weeks and when used again the clutch pedal became very stiff...

    Hey. Ive got a 2005 passat 1.8t 4motion manual tranny. So i was driving down the road shifting normally and then all the sudden my clutch pedal went all the way to the floor and i had no clutch use. I drove for a little while intending to get to where i was going but was forced to stop and...
  7. MK1 Rabbit Transmission
    Hello. i have the pleasure of owning a 1979 Rabbit 1.5l Diesel and I am having some trouble finding the clutch cable. A simple search shows the Pioneer CA-953 cable and other variants to be the correct one. Upon ordering it the cable seems to fit in properly to the pedal and the firewall but is...
  8. GTI MK7 / 2015 and up
    Where is the brake light switch on a MK7 Golf/GTI? On most other vehicles I've looked at, there's a sensor mounted on the upper part of the brake pedal arm that, when the pedal is depressed, sends a signal to illuminate the brake lights. I don't see anything on my '17 GTI brake pedal arm, and...
  9. Passat Owners Club
    Left home yesterday and the EPC light came on along with the exclamation point in the digital display. No response from engine to pressing gas pedal, engine just ran at idle. Luckily I was a block from home and idled back. Would like to not have to take it back to the dealer, I've spent too much...
  10. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Had my brakes fixed at the shop a few weeks ago ('80 1.5 Diesel), but noticed I had to start pushing the brake pedal all the way to the firewall again the last few days. The reservoir was nearly empty, so I suspected another leak somewhere. Took the car back to the shop last night, since they...
  11. Jetta / Bora MK5 / 2005–2010
    There's a metallic sounding popping/clicking noise when releasing my clutch pedal. Engine off. Doesn't sound like it comes from the pedal area. Worried it might be in the clutch plates. I made a video, the audio from the iPhone, and a separate audio recording with a microphone inside the...
  12. TIGUAN OWNERS CLUB
    Hi all, I need some help please. A couple months ago I purchased this nice little 2009 VW Tiguan with 121k on the odometer. After driving it for approx 3000km I noticed that especially in the morning it wouldn't accelerate properly, no matter how hard I hit the gas pedal it was hesitant. The...
  13. VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    Hey guys, Just bought an 09 Rabbit recently and after 200 miles it started making a terrible grinding noise from the transmission. The noise goes away with the clutch pedal pushed in and seems to go away after third gear. It's also hard to get the car out of reverse and first gear. I did some...
  14. GTI Owners Club
    Hi, Has anyone else experienced this issue? Started happening in teens, possibly lower and just diagnosed recently (notice when you put pedal to metal only. happened maybe 4 times in 35k miles). VW would not cover under warranty and although they covered labor, it was still a 2k repair. A...
  15. Beetle Owners Club
    Hi, Does anyone know if I am right in thinking that when removing the pedal cluster. The right hand bracket by the brake pedal should just slide off the shaft once the circlip has been removed Chris

    I notice near the top of the engine some oil I think it's leaking from the gasket. ? I will post pics later . People on other forums say it might be related to a clogged PVC system ? A few months ago I noticed a hissing sound near the back of the engine a tiny hose that connects to some other...
  17. Beetle Owners Club
    Hi all, I have just joined today. The battery was dead. I started my car by with some push. Once the car started I realized that the engine tends to stop if I donot keep pushing the gas pedal especially during the stops. What might me the reason? Is this something which I can do it my self...
  18. VW CC Technical Forum
    Hi, Can anyone tell me if the ACC braking system on my 2014 GSD CC uses the same hydraulically operated discs and pads as the foot brake. I ask because when mine ACC operates the brakes it sounds like something is grating. The pedal operation sounds fine.
