    One Key

    Couple more thoughts: Remove the lower steering column cover and glue the RFID capsule near the ignition where it's out of sight and no danger of breaking, stolen or lost. As noted above soaking it out using nail polish remover is doable and pretty safe: use a plastic toothpick and if it...

    Any idea what this part was originally designed to hold?

    The Passat is obviously the higher end model with a cupholder in the engine compartment!

    Help please, 2003 VW Jetta TDI Fuel Line Replacement

    The clear section is required by law to allow a visual inspection for off road diesel fuel which has red dye in it, but it's also useful for checking for air bubbles in the lines after changing the filter. Whether or not to use regular line in place of it is your choice, but it will work just...

    2003 VW Jetta - Passenger Front Suspension Clunking

    Glad it was easy & cheap fix, a loose bit down there could get ugly pretty quick! I refreshed the front suspension on the MK4 2 years ago and had to double/triple check everything before it went back on the ground. My CDO never sleeps! :rolleyes:

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Replaced both headlight wiring harnesses yesterday evening: opened up the driver's side to replace the high beam bulb last Saturday and there was a nice little pile of confetti and lots of bare wire! :eek: Thanks again to Andrew & the gang over at TuneMyEuro for super fast shipping and a nice...

    2003 VW Jetta - Passenger Front Suspension Clunking

    Check the fasteners on the ball joint to control arm: in the video it looks like there is some play.

    FS: Reflex Silver MKIV Golf Hatch and Rear Doors CT/NY

    Ditto! I’m tempted to drive up for the hatch just to check out the Ute! I have a 2000 silver Golf that’s too nice to cut up, but once I see the truck I might not need the hatch...? GLWS, I’m also following the build thread.

    Flickering screen of death!

    I did the MIB2 conversion in our 2015 Sportwagen S last summer and have no regrets: I paid about $680 for everything (hardware, programming, shipping, etc) but it is not a trivial process so read the info in this link if you are interested in that option. The MIB2 hardware from any base 2016-17...

    right rear backup light keeps blowing out!

    Could be water leaking into the hatch: do you ever see (or hear) signs of water in the hatch? Check the wiring harness & plug for cross contact: IIRC you can change the reverse bulb without removing the carrier piece but you can see more if you remove it and poke around a little.
