  2. coolant system pressure question

    New Beetle Technical Forum
    I have an 02 beetle that is losing coolant. No drops on the ground, can't find any wet spot and not overheating. I did try to do a pressure test and found that as soon as I build any pressure at all it leaks out the bypass on the overflow ball. I can't get it to 2 pounds before it leaks down...
  3. i found an EPC light ON, but now it is off. Is it OK?

    I just bought a 2019 Tiguan SE 3 weeks ago. An hour ago, when I was driving home with cruise control at 60 mph, I just found an EPC warning light was ON. I did not feel any abnormality on driving. Because I didn't know even what EPC standed for, I googled it after coming back home. I found it...
  4. Dash Vinyl

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Looking for a good recommendation for a glue to reattach pealing dashboard vinyl under the gauges and the glovebox cover where it’s peaked away. Hoping to get to it soon before it starts to split/crack.
  5. Temperature gauge

    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...

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    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...
  7. 07 Rabbit headlight harness pinouts?

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    Hi all: Have an 07 rabbit 4D that I bought used. It had an aftermarket set of HIDs installed that have been giving me nothing but trouble. Sometimes neither side will light - a day later, no problem again! (Starting to wonder if it's actually a switch or the central electronics, but still...

  13. Golf MK7 for a bummer guy??

    Golf MK7 / 2015 and up
    Considering trading my 2011 335 Xi for a used 2018 golf Tsi (23000kms). Had a few bimmers in my life. With my 335 at 175000kms I don’t want to be spending a whole lot of maintenance at the moment. So decided to test drive a new golf and surprisingly I didn’t feel a let down compared to my 335...
  14. coil check, no start

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    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...

    Hi everyone so a 81 vw rabbit pickup I bought is having the weirdest possibly blown head gasket symptoms. There's a small amount of steam that comes from the coolant overflow, but it doesn't use any coolant. No milky oil, no smoke out exhaust, doesn't over heat. It's developed a fuel leak which...

    CC Owners Club
    Looking at buying a fantastic 2013 CC 2.0 T. I started the car and put my foot on the brake pedal and it went down to the floor. I pumped it 3-4 times and it became firm and did not go down again. Brakes were fine during the test drive no issues stopping or going down to the floor. Question, is...
  18. 2012 2L diesel automatic - disappearing coolant issue

    Hi, my 2012 Tiguan (37k on clock) showed a coolant warning light last week. Only had a full service 4 weeks ago. Garage can’t find obvious external leak, so did pressure test. Nothing showed up. Changed DSG oil, in case it was there, (and this recommended at 40k anyway) but no coolant found in...

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    Other posts have been made regarding instrument lights not working and while that is also my problem I’m going to expand upon the issue. These lights are activated through the headlight switch. First, all external lighting works and all bulbs are lit when the headlight switch is pulled on...
