  3. 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...

  8. Polo Owners Club
    Hello, We recently bought a used Polo 1.4 Match DSG for my son and I was looking at the rear lights which seem to be very weak. I opened them up and realised they use a much smaller light bulb than the indicator, brake and reverse light bulbs, I think it is a H21W, but not sure. With the covers...
  9. Ask A Volkswagen TECH - Hosted by Nitroscope8
    My 2010 Golf Plus 1.6 TDI went into limp mode last Tuesday, and the garage identified that injector #4 had an electrical issue and wanted ~€800 to replace it. I said no, and purchased a reconditioned Bosch one. I have just fitted it; however, my torque wrench seems to be broken and my...

    I have owned a 1981 Caddy diesel for a number of years. I recently, 5000 miles ago, rebuilt and installed a 1.6 turbo diesel engine and 5 speed from a 1983 Jetta. I works absolutely great! I believe it has the original radiator. What would be a better radiator to replace it with. It is not...

  14. Passat B7 Forums
    Hi all, Driving a 2011 Passat Variant B7 2.0 TDI. A few weeks back while driving the glow plug light came on and the car went into limp mode. A scan said it was an EGR fault and was quoted €650 to replace it. I don't have that kind of money at the minute and also want to get the AC fixed while...
  15. Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    So I bought my first car last year and she has been really good to me, getting me around everywhere. But, she burns oil, loses coolant, a bunch of dash lights are on, and there is a smell and the smoke of burning oil in the engine bay. I am poor so i cant just go have it repaired. This is...

  17. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Just recently noticed my temperature gauge hasn’t been reaching its usual levels when driving up hill, it’s registering much lower than usual, displaying temperatures more akin to rolling downhill in neutral in the winter time. After driving around for a while, up and down and around, with the...

    Hey all, looking for any advice on my issues here. I've got an 81 diesel caddy. Currently overheating and I'm not sure where to look next. It's always done fine, even when I lived in Arizona (I'm in SE Ohio now). Last summer on a trip to Pittsburg it started overheating climbing all the hills in...
  19. Beetle Owners Club
    We have a 2017 Beetle, 42k miles, just purchased used. We had it checked by AAA mechanic and he overlooked one relatively minor problem. The gas nozzle at pump will not stay on any more than a few seconds at a time. It keeps shutting off long before the tank is full. I understand it is...

    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...
