    WTB: Q5 tdi, greater Seattle area

    Wife is looking at Q5 tdi, hoping to get one that’s been properly serviced and such. Willing to travel as far as Portland south, or Spokane west from the greater Seattle area. Also if anyone has good or bad experiences with businesses that they purchased from, and thoughts on the q5. We are well...

    Resetting Oil Change Reminder

    Yes. 2 MQB chassis. There is nothing on the bottom of the pan, unless they have figured out to put the sensor inside the pan from the top area. Anyone have a picture of one installed in a pan?

    DSG DMF reassembly problem

    Splines on trans and DSG not lined up? The flywheel can have the center module move around like a clutch disk.

    Coolant Loss Mystery

    Do your proper homework. There is a different crank alignment tool than all other previous models. I can do the belt in probably less than 3 hours, and I’ve done 3 of them. Doesn’t include the other service things that are usually done, DSG, engine oil, or fuel filter. Do the tensioner and belt...

    KESSY problem/fault

    Everything that I could physically check, and check with vagcom is ok. I took a chance and ordered a pair of door handles. Replaced the drivers, cleared the codes, and works like normal. Just have to have the handle painted. Tried a diy color match spray paint, turned out like poo. So off to the...

    KESSY problem/fault

    Wiring in door boot is good. I ohm tested between the door plug, and the door handle plug, jiggled wires, tested ok. I know that it’s not a load test, but that’s the best I can do with what I have. Searched all over online and it’s a very difficult item to get used that’s in the US. Can get it...

    KESSY problem/fault

    Our 15 wagon is having an issue with the kessy remote unlock. Touching the drivers door handle doesn’t unlock the car, nor lock the car. Inside, the MFI gives a keyless fault. VCDS-Mobile scan shows a B116f fault code for antenna open circuit. All I could find online is in the Phaeton forums...

    CP3 fuel pump upgrade thread

    Flush and filter the fuel system the best that I could, maybe even drop the tank for a cleaning. If you have any inclination to send the injectors out for cleaning I hear S&S can do it. Then run the new cp3.

    Tandem pump rebuilt - now failing to start?

    You can remove the return line from the pump as it meets the filter to see if you are getting any air. All while using the VCDS to cycle the pump in he tank.

    06 jetta cranks no start

    Make 100% sure all of the fuel lines that you touched aren’t plugged. I have had the inner plastic lining fold back over inside, and limit how much fuel gets by. It was at the end of a line that had been recently cut. When I was pushing the line back on, the plastic folded over, creating a 1way...

    2006 sticking Jetta brakes, where to start?

    Car sat for roughly 14 months before I purchased it and put a new engine into it. I have checked all of the caliper slides, and lubricated them. Flushed the brake fluid as well. Before I did all of that, on the inaugural drive pulling out of the shop, the pedal stayed down as low I pushed it to...

    Air in fuel return BRM, no start.

    It’s a BRM. Can’t crack the injection lines. I ended up figuring out what the problem was. The supply line has a clear inner coating/liner. To make a long story short, that liner can come loose and collapse. Especially where lines have been cut and join metal. It had folded over, against the...

    DSG clutch pack shuddering

    To give closure on this, I ended up replacing the DSG with a lower mileage unit, and it works great.

    2006 sticking Jetta brakes, where to start?

    I have a exact same issue with the exact same age / try of car. Bleed the fluid, didn’t seem good. Problem still there. Tempting to replace the master cylinder. But watching what others do.
