    During a roadtrip last week my fog light on the drivers side cracked. I didn't hear an impact. Anyway the stealership wanted $197.00 to fix it. I found an OEM replacement fog light assembly for $50.00. Does anyone here know how to remove the front lower grill insert to access the fog light ...

    I need to replace my headliner, but I just want to go stock. I don't know if I want to try and replace the fabric, rather, the whole thing instead. The stealership wants $500, plus labor. That's a total ripoff for a piece of carboard with some fabric glued to it. What about the fabric...

    Ok, I'm doing an Alternator upgrade and am literally stuck at the last hurdle of physically removing the alternator. Check the pic's below for my set-up (1.6SE BCB '03) My questions are: 1: I have not put in the 'maintenance position' yet but is the direction of alternator removal TOWARDS the...

    Tried over in the Jetta forum but didn't get any hits after a few days, so I thought I'd try here. Buddy of mine has a 2012 GLI with around 17k miles. Starting this Spring its been giving him problems starting. It'll crank for 10-15 seconds before it'll start. He took it to the stealership and...

    Buddy of mine has a 2012 GLI with around 17k miles. Starting this Spring its been giving him problems starting. It'll crank for 10-15 seconds before it'll start. He took it to the stealership and they said its right on the threshold for A/F ratio at cold start, so they can't do anything under...

    looking for some ideas for a battery replacement. about that time and i'm not sure what to grab. stealership wants $130 and prices for batteries around where i live are a bit higher than that.

    Going for my first oil change today. Is there anything I should watch out for from the Stealership? They said they are going to do a "Free Multipoint Inspection" Which in my terms means "we're going to do our best to find something wrong with the car. Just curious Im not a mechanic so I...

    I've been having a slight problem with locking my doors after a drive, it's almost like the door doesn't know its closed. I have to slam it to trip the sensor and then you can hear the lock engage, but sometimes the lock wont move at all, and the door will open. (along with an alarm going off)...

    So today I decided it was time to clean my Carbonio CAI filter. Well after I had lifter the car, I started to loosen the lugs off the rotor and as the tire gave that little turn, I heard a mean "Click". once I got the tire off, I turned the brake rotor and heard a pretty heavy, metal on metal...

    I know this has probably been posted somewhere but i couldn't find it. Anyways, is there any way to get the security code for a radio if you buy it and they don't provide, such as taking it to the stealership?

    I can't believe how short the life is on some of these VW bulbs. I had my inner right taillight replaced around 30K and now my inner left one is out at about 42K. I had a truck that never once lost a headlight, taillight, or brake light in 76K. It only lost one of the two plate lights which...

    I broke a couple of the rungs in my air vent at the top of my dash above my stereo, when I let a buddy of mine try and install my stereo.... I looked away for one minuted... So what can i do about this? Will the stealership replace them for a hefty price?

    Does anyone know of any vw parts dealers in the LA/OC area? I'm looking for a local shop where I can buy a GTI lower rear valence. I might just go to a dealer if no such shop exists.
