    Hey! I’m about to pull the trigger on buying a 2012 Golf R for pretty cheap from wholesale at the dealer I work at. 130xxx miles, has a pretty good oil leak (which Im not too concerned about) but throws these codes. It runs very well and I’m fine with fixing these issues if they’re not massive...

    Hood release cable is broken or disconnected. Battery is also dead. Is there away to pop the primary hood release from the exterior? I have removed the emblem but cannot find a way to trigger the latch that way if there is one. Thank you for your time

It ran for a second and then cut out! When I retried to start it the was no life to the dash and the car wouldn't even try to...

    So my girlfriends car has been having this weird issue since around May of this year. The car seems to have a misfire issue, or so we thought. We took the car to a VW performance shop here and they replaced the spark plugs and wires as I was told by others that you usually want to start there...

    Here are the results of the VCDS Autoscan with car running. I am wondering if I can just do a simple reset of the j500 power steering module or do I need to replace the module and possibly the steering rack, although, the steering rack has been fine and showed no issues of being faulty The car...

    I just bought a 13 Jetta and the high beams haven’t been working. I’ve replaced the high beams today with the Sylvannia Silverstar Ultras, and both low beams work already, one was burnt out but was replaced. The burnt out headlamp bulb light is on and i got a feeling it ls gonna be the little...

    How’s it going y’all? The alternator in my 2016 Jetta sport went bad and I cannot find a replacement. I’ve searched far and wide. The issue I’m having is that the alternator that was in my Jetta has one pin on the pigtail connector. Every replacement has 2 pins. I have had zero luck figuring...

    Hello Everyone! I am trying to figure out how to install a LED light strip on the grille of my 2022 Jetta GLI. Very similar to how you see the LED light strips on the new Golfs! Does anyone have any suggestions or similar builds they could send my way. I am very happy with the newest generation...

    So I blew the internal clutch slave/throw out bearing and as I’m at 125k I got a new clutch kit and all service stuff, I figured “hey two days and some elbow grease and I’ll save $2000, easy” So far it has been everything but, I kept “finding” new bolts holding the trans on that were hidden...

    I'm having a problem with a loud screech or whistle when my turbo is under load after around 15 min or so. I thought it could be a boost leak and found a section of pipe mixed among the emissions bs that had a gash and I jerry rigged a new hose to fix it but I still hear sound after a bit. The...

    Is there anybody that would be able to help me track down the safe code for my radio? Just bought the car and it didn't come with an owner's manual. I've looked in the trunk under the spare tire, behind the radio, everywhere. Can't seem to find a sticker anywhere with the safe code. 2000...

    EPC and Engine light This is my first VW and I'm still figuring out stuff. I got into the car after work and just pressed start/stop engine button. This started the head unit, interior lighting and hvac system. On the instrument cluster I see EPC and engine light on. These lights go away when I...
  14. Golf/GTI VII
    Hey guys, I’ve got a 2015 Gti pp, about a week ago I installed and tuned (through a local tuner) for an HPA IS38+ turbo. I also installed a hpfp at this time to assist with fueling. The other day I put about a gallon of e85 in the tank followed by 10 gallons of 92. The car drove fine and had no...

    Does anyone know if wheels from a MKVI will fit the MKVII? I'm hoping to figure out to help me decide whether I want to purchase new wheels/tires for my MKVI Golf TDI, as I'm pretty sure I will be getting a MKVII in one form or another within the next couple of years...

    Howdy, I did an engine change recently (1.8t AWP to the same motor) and upon turning it on I immediately heard a grinding from the transmission. The shifter wouldn't go into gear unless I forced it (like the clutch wasn't engaging enough) and the wheels would spin in neutral while it grinded...

    I've been really struggling to find a distributor for my MK2 golf gti. Does anyone know a good source in Europe? If I can't find one what are my options here? :confused: The OEM is - 037905237X Thanks
  18. Touareg
    Hi I am not a car person. My husband is but he hates my car because of how unuser/fixer friendly it is. My 2017 VW Touareg V6 with just over 67K miles was serviced by VW in November 2021. They replaced misc parts not requested for my cross country drive--spark plugs, coils, etc. I never had...
