  2. Jetta/GLI VI
    I have a 2015 Jetta SE with about 85k on it. It's leaking coolant and I'm really struggling to figure out where from. Hoping someone here might be able to help! The coolant leaks off the oil pan, but the highest I can trace it is what looks to be a wire clip. I got a good picture from the...
  3. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I have a mk4 golf. Before I had a power steering leak and changed the pump and got all the washers and everything. Now it under the pump it is a puddle of power steering fluid and makes whale noises when turning the wheel while on. If it counts for anything I also changed alternator and...
  4. Cabriolet
    Clickbait title 😜, In the Netherlands, there was this storm called Eunice, UK and Belgium know which one I’m talking about. Today I wanted to visit my in-laws, but I was blown away by the damage this storm caused on my sweet ‘94 cabby. I am lucky that neither trees nor debris landed on my car...

  6. Golf/GTI VIII
    Hello everyone, just wanted to warn the others of an experience I had. Hopefully its a one-off, but this could save someone a headache. TL;DR: chasis panel welds were not properly water-proofed at the factory. Driving in wet conditions would collect water (dampness) in the spare wheel...
  7. CC
    so right after i get my car out the shop (transmission replacement), i noticed around a day or two after that all the coolant was gone because my light came on, and it was. So i refilled it thinking nothing of it,then the same thing happened again. For the past couple of days now I have been...
  8. Golf V & Jetta V
    Just bought an 09 Gti and took it through the car wash(it needed it bad) but I noticed a leak on my passenger side coming from behind the dash basically all the way to the right. Is this common? Is there a known leak spot? Hoping to avoid spending a weekend susing it out.
  9. Gol - all years
    good Morning - was about to drive to work when I noticed a drop of water on the passenger seat. I looked up and noticed moisture over the front passenger seat. No other signs of water around any of the windows or Sun roof. Has any one seen this before? Any clues as what could be the issue...

  11. Passat (B5)
    I have a V6 4motion wagon, lately its been losing all of its coolant in the reservoir after shutting the car off and letting it sit. It appears to be coming from around that red cap on the radiator, a huge puddle is around that and that spot/area is covered in coolant. It started out as a small...
  12. Golf SportWagen VII
    So I made the error of buying a used Alltrack 2017 with the moonroof, out of warranty. Got a good deal on it, except I discover later that there’s a terrible roof leak issue with these things, and I am a victim. I was on a road trip with it while it rained and the b side pillar and the center...

  15. Golf VII R
    So I took my mk7 R on the German autobahn today and did some high speed driving. Afterwards I noticed some oil residue on the inside of the rear left wheel. I took the wheel of and noticed that the rear left side of the sub frame was covered in oil. I put the wheel back on and took it to a local...
  16. The Beetle
    Lately since I had my windshield replaced a few weeks ago, I've been having large amounts of water come in through the top where the top meets the windshield frame when it rains hard. They've replaced the windshield to make sure it wasn't the windshield seal but it wasn't. I'm thinking when...
  17. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I recently refilled my 2001 Jetta with pink coolant and antifreeze. It’s been running fine for the last few days with no problems. But yesterday my car overheating and when I got home I noticed a strange green liquid dripping from the front passenger side of the engine. Basically dropping...

  19. Golf III & Jetta III
    1995 MK3 2.0 Golf GL 4D I've done a ton of research for this sunroof and I think I've done everything I can. I bought my car with the sunroof duct taped and the previous owner told me it leaked and also he unplugged the motor because he noticed it was off track. I bought a new sunroof seal from...
  20. The Beetle
    Two questions with my trunk. First main issue is I’m getting water in my trunk, pooling where my spare is located. (Winter just ended in PA so I haven’t checked it in two months) it’s clean water so i think maybe a seal? I also noticed my emergency latch (the glow in the dark one, in case you...
