  2. 2008 Sage Green, no power steering, where to sell?

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I have a 2008 Rabbit, and it's been a great car. It has about 210K miles on it, so in no way is it perfect, but it's in pretty good shape. A few dents and dings, nothing major, the interior is ok, again not great, as the headliner has given up it's ability to stay up against the roof. The...
  3. Brake and Power Steering Fluid Question

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I am looking to do some fluid maintenance on the car since they have been in there for 5+ years. For the brakes I imagine any old DOT3 should work as stated on the cap, or does it need to be something more specific? For the power steering, I have the red cap and I believe it takes Dexron II...

    Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Just recently, my DSG auto gearbox has started losing power. I pull in, turn off the ignition and restart after a minute and things go back to normal meaning that it is probably a software problem. The last time a spanner icon has appeared in the gear display. Do I just get it checked out with a...

    MKV Rabbit FAQs & Newbies
    Writing from Vernon. I'm just about finished.

    Has anyone attempted to replace the stock MK6 JSW TDI power drivers seat with Audi “S-line” or VW “R” seats? If so, is it a difficult retrofit? I’d like more profound side bolsters, and wrapped in leather as my “pleather” seats are showing wear abs beginning to crack. Is there another...
