I may be seeing this issue a lot on other websites because my car is been in the shop for six weeks with this issue, but maybe it’s worth starting a thread.
Issue: CJAA engine is hard to start, or is unable to start with no faults shown.
Occurrence: Mornings and/or when car...
Thank you so much. That video is exactly what’s going on, I thought something was losing pressure, but my first thought was the HPFP and all of the nightmares that brings.
I’ll take a look and verify I have the older vvt oil reservoir housing/solenoid valve.

I figured I’d add this here, since I couldn’t find any complete information on it.
I installed DIN compartment where my MDI box was in the armrest:

Awesome writeup! Do you have any pictures of the connector on the non-homelink visor? I was meaning to figure out exactly what connectors are being used--they look like a standard type of molex. Sometimes the part number or family name is printed on the connector. I figured I would get my parts...
Just a heads up for those in North America; the intercooler kit listed in the TSB is back ordered for all of North America, apparently. If you are covered by CPO, the fix might take a while.
Edit: Cold Weather Kits are back in-stock.
I am having a weird issue. Most likely, this will be a dealer CPO fix. Adding to the forum here and will update if/when it's fixed.

I apologize for not having citations. I was looking at Westfalia vs EcoHitch for my JSW in North America a few months ago. When I realized most of the hitches in Europe and North America had the same ratings, I figured the reason the difference between European and US options was due to...
To add to this, the towing rating of 2000 lbs vs 3000 lbs in Europe is not due to physical differences in the hitches, but in the road laws for USA vs Europe.
The stability/control (particularly during braking) of a trailer at 70 MPH has the tow rating at 2000 lbs for the United States. Europe...
You could add grease to the bearings, but it's probably not of much benefit since it doesn't move much.
The nylon blocks (white plastic pieces) are fine without any lubricant. It's best to find out what the blocks are actually made out of first, but a silicon grease is probably compatible. If...
