  1. Golf MK2 / 1983-1992
    Been contemplating an engine conversion for my 85 Golf Diesel. After repeatedly seeing the black soot spewing out of the tailpipe, I'm giving serious thought to converting to a lesser polluting gas engine or going full electric. Any thoughts on this are most appreciated!
  2. Passat B5 Forums
    I've done some searching and haven't found exactly what I need so I'm posting. I have a 2001 Passat Station Wagon with the V6 engine. In Aug '09, the Timing Belt, Idler and Water Pump were replaced under a warranty issue; the mileage was 56K. My current mileage is 96K, so the belt has 40K on it...
  3. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hi all, I have been running Castrol 20w50 since we bought the car in 2016 and I am thinking of switching to Shell Rotella T4 15w40. I notice on cold starts the car runs a little rough and we seem to get smoke out of the tailpipe that we didn't have for the first few years. After it warms up for...
  4. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    1981 Rabbit, 1.7L CIS Fuel is definitely getting to the 'fuel distributor' because I had a leak in the cold start valve fuel line and fuel was abundant. That is, I'm confident everything before the fuel distributor is pressurized. However, the car was not starting (this is after a full engine...
  5. Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Hello, hoping this community has information on this issue as I've had no luck with Google, or the forum search. When I pull the wheel in/out past a certain spot in the length of the telescopic travel the engine is shut off the and car appears to be in the "start" mode of the ignition switch...
  6. MKV Rabbit FAQs & Newbies
    I am perplexed in trying to trouble shoot the clutch on my 2008 MKV Rabbit. :o The pedal recently lost a lot of its resistance. It now it engages pretty far out. Initially, I thought it may be the master cylinder. I checked both the master cylinder and slave cylinder and No leaking. The...
  7. Scirocco Owners Club
    hey guys! I have a 2010 VW Eos that I'm going to do a front end swap on. I'm in the US so there's literally nothing Scirocco locally. I'd like the R style pre-facelift parts (years '08-'14). I need all of the Scirocco parts for this but don't exactly have a list of what I'll need, so do any of...
  8. VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    Anyone ever do the headliner in a 2007? I have a hand me down with just 30,000 miles on it but it sat outside in VA heat and most of the fabric is pretty sagging. It looks like a nasty bit of work as a DIY and it also looks like $$$$ to have it done professionally. Any thoughts? Thanks
  9. Ask A Volkswagen TECH - Hosted by Nitroscope8
    Newbie (me!) just acquired this car. Trans needs to be replaced. Wondering if there is a chart/site that can tell me what 5sp manuals would be a direct swap for this car? Plan is to buy a used one, but my thoughts are if I can increase my search from just 2008 Rabbit 5 sp manual, I might get...

    I have what seems like a lot of road noise coming through the door seals. Im not getting air penetration but it is louder than I expected. Anyone else have this issue and thoughts on remedies? Thank you
  11. Golf MK6 / 2009 -2014
    Has anyone attempted to replace the stock MK6 JSW TDI power drivers seat with Audi “S-line” or VW “R” seats? If so, is it a difficult retrofit? I’d like more profound side bolsters, and wrapped in leather as my “pleather” seats are showing wear abs beginning to crack. Is there another...

I tried turning the car on an off again and checked the fuses. The driving console screen still works as do the back up sensors...

  15. Tiguan New To Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Just bought a 2016 Tiguan S 4Motion with 26,000 miles. Very happy to have my first Tiguan. I have memories from youth of a friend who's family owned a 68 Beetle. I've just moved to the Northeast and thought AWD would be a good idea. I find the Tiguan to be very comfortable, with a nice ride and...

  17. Jetta Owners Club
    2010 Jetta 2.0 Turbo Throwing a 004874 code on 4 th cyl. It also has a ticking noise what I believe to be coming from the timing chain area.
