Do not rule out the sunroof drains. Every single one I've ever messed with had compromised rear drains. The female coupler that connects to the ball socket on the sunroof drain is glued on to the drain tubing. That glue deteriorates and the rear drains leak. The only want to fix it is to cut the...
I haven't had to pull a BRM before, but the engine harness should terminate at the ECM under the wiper cowl. You'll want to just disconnect things like the alternator wiring and glow plug harness but the main engine harness should have a large connector into the ECM.
I checked the main ground and the 3 smaller ones under the air cleaner. They were all super clean for a 300k car.
I may have found the issue. I was getting .40V drop between the alternator post and positive battery post. That is too much to me. I found a large drop on the red positive battery...
Hey all! I'm still fighting this code:
01598 - Drive Battery Voltage
000 - -
Fault Status: 01100000
Fault Priority: 2
Fault Frequency: 157
Reset counter: 17
Mileage: 178022 km
Time Indication: 0
Voltage: 13.35 V
It jumps the RPM to 1,050 or so...
Hey fellas. I've seen this code before on another BRM. It causes an annoying 1,000+ rpm idle which makes the DSG slip a lot when starting from a stop.
I've cured one before with a new alternator pulley. On my car now I'm getting this code but the belt is running silky smooth. I really hate...
Rear main bearing?
If you’re talking about the rear main seal, it’s a good thing you didn’t touch it. If you were to install a new one without the special tool you may have put it all back together and it may not have ran.
The AC is working like new again, finally. That was a big project. After replacing the evaporator core, RCV and expansion valve, I removed the lock carrier to replace the radiator, dryer cartridge, and clean the condenser.
It was all worth it as it’s super hot in FL right now. No more...
I held strong at $22k for this ‘12 Executive Touareg with brown leather and 27k miles. Someone bought it yesterday for between $23.5 and $24k. KBB private party value was $19,762. I thought CPO would add a couple thousand, but not $4k.
I guess someone just fell in love with it and had to have...
