  1. New Golf owner questions

    Golf MK4 / 1999-2002
    I just bought a 2000 Golf GLS with about 210k on it. Picked it up as a beater for the winter but didn’t realize the previous owner never really cared for it. I also cannot get ahold of him for some reason. What oil is recommended for it? The manual lists “VW502 00 or VW500 00 or VW501 01”...

    Jetta / Bora MK6 / 2011 and up
    I own a 2015 Jetta TdI SEL and the car started to crank longer, each day for about 2 weeks, then the starter just clicked and wouldn't start. I took the battery out, charged it and it started doing the same thing, cranking slowly again. The battery is 5 years old and I want to replace it. My...

    Air-cooled Owners Club
    Hello, I'm a "newbee" to the air cooled VW world. Quick question: How do I remove the glove box? I've removed the front door, unscrewed the upper latching device, found a couple of side screws, but I can't seem to remove the inner box. Anything I've missed? Thanks (1st Bug).

    I'm getting conflicting answers to the following question. I have a 2005.5 VW Jetta Tdi (engine code BRM) with six speed auto tranny (code HQN) with 189,000 miles. Does this setup have a dual mass flywheel or just a torque converter? Thanks, Carsonic
  7. 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...

    Air-cooled / FAQs
    We just bought a 66 Beetle convertible and I have a few questions. Where is the engine number stamped and how do I decode that? Can the VIN be broken down for more information? Would a disc brake conversion (front) be worth the money spent? I have been looking at Jbugs for parts, who are some...

    Golf MK7 / 2015 and up
    Our 2016 Golf recently had a leak around the sun roof which caused some staining of the fabric on the ceiling. Fortunately, it was fixed under warranty.

    Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    Good morning! I've looked through the manual, and I'm HOPING I'm wrong, but I don't believe there is seat memory for the SE? If anyone can tell me differently, I'd be pretty happy! It's such a SILLY thing, but when my husband drives, he puts the seat back and sideways maybe....lol....?! I...

    Hi All Looking to purchase a 2003 Golf Comfortline 1.6 petrol. Car looks to be in excellent shape, full service history and clean and neat. My question is, can a little motor like this handle these sort of kilometres? Also, are VW's expensive to repair if something does go wrong? Really...

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I feel like this is going to be an obvious answer and I'm going to feel dumb for asking but my 81 rabbit pickup 1.6 coolant system has random spontaneous problems, so starting with the reservoir I can't tighten the cap on all the way otherwise it builds up steam in the coolant system and...
