I'm curious if anyone can help me out....

I have 2013 Toureg TDI and just installed the factory hitch (7P0-092-135) and wiring package (7P1-055-203). Install went fine, but the brake lights on the trailer don't work. All of the other lights function properly, but the brakes do not. I've read this is common because the trailer module ships with EU settings and needs to be reprogrammed for North America. I called the stealership this morning and they want $120 to do this 10 minute (from what I've read) job. I live in Albertville and was wondering if there was anyone in the metro or St. Cloud that could help be save a few bucks?

Thank You! I'll check them out the next time I get my car serviced. I thought about trying them out the last time, but I ended up getting my "fix" and service in one trip at the dealer. It will be nice not to have to pay dealership service costs.

Not a good day with cars today. So I am driving my TDI and accelerating on University and there is a mechanical clunk, boost drops to zero, than fluctuates rapidly between 6 psi and 18 than the car dies. I am guessing turbo and I will be doing more diagnosis tomorrow. When the boost came back I was confused for sure.

So I get in my wife's A3 Jetta that has had exhaust rumble after going through some of the wet snow. So I am driving it and the exhaust rumble stops and the exhaust gets very loud. At a stop light I get out and the exhaust has broken off at the catalytic converter. It is up on ramps in the garage now.

North or south of the cities?

Got a good mig welder, in mounds view, if you want help sticking in a new flexpipe. Actually might even have a new flex section squirrelled away.

Actually in Minneapolis: 42nd Ave N and James. It broke and the back side of the catalytic converter and it have broken there before so there was enough pipe to slide an adaptor peope patch in and with a little work with my cut off tool it fit over the exhuast pipe.

Plan for today is to anchor a 1/2 in eyebolt in my garage floor and pull my car in. (drag it off the street and pullling car goes into the garage, I winch it from there.) Then the diagnostic disassembly begins.

Oh, that ain't too far, drive somewhat near there when I go to discount steel. Not that I've really been there in quite a while.

Nice idea on the eyebolt
I use a dismounted tire as padding and another car to push them around.

I just bought a 3000 lb pull force 12 volt winch that I will mount to the floor and then drill mounting holes in my truck.

Selling my FMIC http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread...03#post5384103 You can see it on my car as it is parked dead in front of my house 4225 James Avenue North. Make me an offer. I am going back to RC3 with a Mahle VNT 15.

I would like to get at least what the Mahle VNT is going to cost me and that would be a deal.

Looks like I'm going to the dark side folks, put a deposit down on an X5D today. She's a beauty and a beast.
