    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...

    My brake pedal hit the floor on the exit ramp coming off the highway, and the brake light came on. I used the gears to slow me down while trying to pump the pedal and it just kept hitting the floor. Eventually some resitance came back in the pedal, and I was able to use the breaks to come to my...

  14. Tiguan New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Just joined the site hoping to converse with other owners. In August we bought a black 2016 Tiguan S 4 Motion with 28k. The Wife drove it until this Monday! At 6' 3" it felt cramped for me and the black was a real pain to keep clean. On Saturday at a gas station a person parked next to us...

    How can I get this light to turn off? I changed and bleed the brake recently. This is not trigger by the e-brake. The e-brake does not come on after 15 seconds of starting the car; it registers on it's own every time I put it on/off. I suspect the brake fluid level sensor needs replacing or...

    I can't start my '81 CIS pickup. I read to check the coil, you should ground a test light and touch on the positive terminal (15) to see if you have voltage, and that it should be 12v or about the same as your battery with the ignition switch on. I had 13 volts at my battery. When I checked the...
