Thanks, I am familair with his great reputation. The problem: San Anselmo (Marin County) is too far away from Concord, and that makes towing and logistics of getting and staying around there hard. Anyone in the EAST Bay come to mind?
I have the same problem: disintegrated bushing sleeve.
As I tried but cannot find just the sleeve bearing, I need to replace the lower hinge (Jetta V).
I've seen horror stories that it takes all kinds of dismantling of the door and fender to remove the lower front door hinge. Can anyone...
I will take out the switch, inspect it closely and restore contacts, if necessary.
Driver's door lock was recently replaced, which also restored the interior light coming on again when opening the door. So all door-related/harness functions work again, so I am not inclined to deal with the...
I appreciate your solutions, but I don't think I have the problem where these solutions apply:
I can recall, set and reprogram with any of the 4 memory switches fine. Only after I unlock the door does the seat sets itself to a phantom setting.
So the unintended seat setting must be somehow...
Unlocking my Mark V TDI with keyfob or door lock will reset the seat to an awkward position (I did not set it and it's unknown where that came from).
Pressing any of the saved memory button (1, 2, or 3) once I am in the car will restore the seat position to my previously saved settings. The...
Thank you all for super-informative posts. I have my marching orders now: a Windows 10- equipped minimalist notebook, and a Ross Tech cable, preferably bought directly from them, so I can update/get support.
Cool, thanks. I can install bootcamp on my Mac to run Windows 10
The next question: where do I buy VAGCOM software compatible with Windows 10? Is there a reliable used market for this, like eBay? I'd like to avoid buying an illegal or unauthorized copy.
Or must I buy new from Rosstech?
Thank you both. Now I understand clearly what tool is necessary to customize functions.
But it's a royal pain having to buy a windows computer (I never liked them) AND the software. It would be so much more convenient if RossTech would finally offer a Mac-compatible version of its VAGCOM, or at...
An independent VW mechanic used VAGCOM/VCDS software on his laptop to turn off my xenons as DRLs (this was on a MKV Jetta GLI), then programmed the fog lights as DRLs.
Would a Scantool/Bluetooth dongle + TorquePro app allow me to execute custom functions like that, and program my key-fob for...
Mine is a 2006 Jetta. That's why I am posting in the MkV Jetta Forum, not the MKIV or MK VI Forum. Unless there were changes made to the harness or wiring during the MKV era, I assume they are wired all the same?
I thought sharing the exact fault codes would solicit someone's help: how the...
After several months of the airbag light coming and going, it finally stays on all the time.
This is what my shade tree mechanic registered on his scanner:
2 Faults Found:
02513 - Belt Force Sensor for Seat Occupied Recognition (G453)
003 - Mechanical Failure - Intermittent -...
