    Headlight alignment on VW GOLF 6 2012

    It's a plastic ball and a four pronged socket, real PIA. Hard to get at, one of the socket prongs broke off probably. Seems I saw a thread once where someone pulled the lense and got a small tie wrap around the socket.

    BHW/ALH VE Hybrid...

    Rebuilt ALH Lifter Noise NEED HELP!!!

    Check for an exhaust leak, possibly where the injector mates to the head. If not swap out your injectors and then your pump. I saw a video of your truck in the snow, lot of black smoke, hope you didn't damage another piston.
