  1. Tiguan (PQ35)
    Hello, I live in Alberta and recently have had to park my Tiguan outside. Today I turned it on and initially the RPM stayed at 0 while the engine turned over. This happened once before but fixed itself in a second. Today however it did not. No check engine light came on. I turned the vehicle off...
  2. Tiguan (MQB)
    Hello All, I recently purchased a 2022 VW Tiguan SEL R-Line. After driving on the highway I heard a loud crack and pop only to realize that the front facing camera lens was shattered due to a stone chip that went right through the center like a bullseye. No other stone chips anywhere on the...
  3. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    I have a 04 Jetta GL 2.0L L4 SOHC 8V that had spark plugs replaced less then a year ago as well as the ignition coil pack (it’s a all in one). So I was getting a bad o2 sensor code. I replaced the downstream sensor and it was a little shaky at first which I assumed normal as it was adjusting to...
  4. Cabriolet
    Bought an 02 Cabby a month and some change ago and have been periodically slapping new things on here including a new strut, new 02 sensor, new coil pack, fixed an exhaust leak. I'm not the most car savvy but I kind of know my way around but would prefer to take it to a trusted mechanic. I'm...

    Hi yall! New member here and first post but I have been reading on here since we bought our car in Feb of this year. This car has been one thing after another since we got it. That being said, the main issue is the one that I’m posting about here. Sorry if this is too long! Car Details: 2006 VW...
  6. Passat (B5)
    TL;DR: Can someone show or tell me where to drill through to reach the lock mechanism? Apparently even professional mechanics can't do anything about Volkswagen's lock problems, so I'm prepared to take drastic measures to fix them myself. I actually planned on making a hole in the door to...
  7. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    So I have a 2002 VW golf GTI that has been in a front-end collision prior to me owning it and I recently noticed that the driver-side frame rail was crumpled in and is affecting the fitment of the bumper radiator support and the headlight. I was wondering if anyone has replaced a frame rail on...

  13. Arteon
    Wanted to share some damage with you all now that the insurance litigation has been completed. Archie met the front right side of a 2017 GMC Terrain in December unfortunately and it did a pretty good number on the rear quarter panel. So far the estimate is at $7800 before making sure there's...
  14. Golf V & Jetta V
    Hi there, I have a 2008 Volkswagen Rabbit where several of the gears are not shifting properly, and over-revving at times. I've tried the reset transmission trick that's been popular on these forums, but at this point it's not getting the job the done. The car has 161k miles. I've considering...
  15. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    So I got my first vw, a MK4 gti 1.8t, and put an intake and exhaust on it along with a coil pack upgrade. After getting a stage 1 tune I’m pretty sure I blew my charge pipe. Car sounds like it’s got a cam now struggles to stay running and the brakes are hard as a rock. Does this sound like it...

    Lead photo by Yuwarin Stockphoto/Shutterstock.com No matter your reason, whether it’s a crack or chip that's blocking your view, a piece of glass that's seen hundreds of thousands of miles of wear, or even because you've just finished restoring a classic, sometimes you need to have your...
  17. Phaeton
    Dear fellow Phaeton enthusiasts. I ran into a digital workshop manual of the Phaeton (they have them for ALL VAG products) that i concider a goldmine. Its about € 12 / £ 10 / $ 13 so its cheap enough but it has all the schematics and info you would ever need. It runs "ELSA" on a virtual OS...
  18. The Car Lounge
    I was a noob when it came to automotive and when I dug into this book it really helped me understand the basic principles and some advance principles of cars. I'm not trying to be an infomercial but this book did help me and I think it's worth sharing cause others may want to know about this as...
  19. Tiguan (PQ35)
    Hello everyone! I beg you pardon in advance for a very very long text and not the best english. Almost a week ago the engine light turned on and my car got put in limp mode (i think it's called) And the car was shaking like heck if i tried to accelerate, the more acceleration the more shaking. I...
  20. Golf/GTI VI
    My 2013 GTI is mechanically sound, BUT the interior is gradually falling apart. I need a new headliner, and a rear passenger window regulator replacement. My mechanic doesn't do this, and he was too hesitant with his recommendation for me to feel confident... I can do much of the work myself...
