    had my first yesterday when a mastiff stray cut across four-lane traffic and into my path, damaging my left-side light assembly and cracking the left quarter panel. also, the exterior thermometer no longer registers, so is it possible that sensor broke too? the dog, which is fine, shook off the...

    Hiya. Three months in, and my moment of truth Phaeton ownership has arrived. The driver side vent flap motor appears to have gone. From what I’ve read on previous threads it seems like a pretty cheap and straightforward job. I just had a couple of questions before I dive in: 1. Where are the...

    The Phaeton I recently purchased had a large spot of dead pixels near the center of the screen. I would imagine this was from some kind of impact to the LCD, though I can't imagine what someone was doing to cause that. Regardless, the unit functioned fine overall, just the screen was damaged...

    I'd appreciate some input on my suspension diagnosis. The current symptoms are: The car drives around at city speeds fine without suspension faults Attempting to raise the car to the higher level will generate a fault Sitting unevenly, like when waiting to pull onto a main street, will generate...

    Could some kind soul take a picture of your coolant tank when you have a few minutes? My coolant tank is clearly "messed up" but I'm not entirely sure as to the extent just yet. Looking at the top of my coolant tank it appears that a nipple was accidently or intentionally broken off, then a...

    I was previously somewhat active on this forum around 2015 when I bought my first Phaeton. While I really liked the car I wanted something sportier after a while and didn't have room for two; I replaced it with a completely different BMW 335xi. Fast-forward to the present and I no longer have...

    I get the feeling these are pretty much unobtanium at this point, but does anyone have a lead on where to pick up part 3D7061511? That should be the pair of rear rubber floor mats for a long-wheelbase Phaeton. I've scoured the internet, contacted a German VW dealer, and reached out to Volkswagen...

    Hi! I have problem with my Diesel Overcooling too much. It doesn't get to 90C, or gets there after extremely long time of idling in driveway. When it get's to 90C - it becomes extremely quiet in cabin. Almost if this wasn't a diesel. If I drive it in city traffic, go/stop for apporx half and...

    Hi! I recently bought 2008 VW Phaeton 3.0Tdi. It came with a few faults that I want to get my hands on. Right now I'm working on suspension fault. Everytime I start up my car it shows and orange 'Shock Absorber' fault. The car is leveled, ride height changes if I want to, I can also change the...

    Hi all, I'm looking to change my car and i had my eyes set for quite a while on 2011+ used Phaetons. I'm wondering what's your opinion on reliability of said year, model, engine, most common faults and what to lookout for when driving / testing ? And is that a car that could easily live up to...

    I’m at a loss for what to do here. I have a 2005 V8 Phaeton. My wife tried turning it on to move it the other day, problem was, the thing wouldn’t turn on, nor would it relinquish the key. So, the key is stuck in the ignition. Won’t turn on, no lights come on so there’s no power. I’ve tried...

    Hi. I changed my broken aux/parking heater to a refurbished one that had the same part number. I the new one works as a auxiliary heater just fine, but it does not start when I try to start it from to center screen. On VCDS it said that the coolant shut off valve N279 is not fitted and that...

    Mine is a silver/black 2004 V8, bought in late 2020. It started & ran reliably, but in limp mode (3rd gear, PRNDS displayed all characters at once.) Only other problems were details. As long as both batteries were charged, it was otherwise great. I drove it to a local transmission shop in late...
