    CV Axle - Replace both at the same time or just do one?

    On deceleration, with a slight right turn, we get a pretty loud grumbling noise that I believe is the CV axle. I don't see the parts to rebuild the axle so now I am shopping for a GKN or Raxle replacement. Should I do both sides while I am down there or just the one that failed? Car has 129k...

    2012 Sportwagen TDI - Low rumbling when coasting/ deceleration

    Update: Pushing in the clutch does seem to have some sort of effect but it seems to still do it. I've really been able to get it to do it more often when the car is warmed up, in 4th or 5th gear, coasting and decelerating in gear and making a slight right turn. The slight right turn definitely...

    2012 Sportwagen TDI - Low rumbling when coasting/ deceleration

    Taking over maintenance on my Mom's car now that my Dad has passed. It's a 2012 with 129k miles on it and I noticed the other day when coasting in gear/decelerating there is like a low rumble coming from the passenger side I believe. Any guesses what this could be? Do the U Joints go bad on...

    Dieselgate Warranty - Did I just miss out by 1k miles?

    What do you mean by generic? The codes were read by a code reader but I haven't inspected the DPF myself. The car is a 2012 Sportwagen and the emissions update was done in 2018 just before my Mom bought the car. From what I've read we should have coverage because of the update being done less...

    Dieselgate Warranty - Did I just miss out by 1k miles?

    I need to stop touching things today because I keep striking out. My Dad passed away a month ago after a battle with cancer and I'm trying to help my Mom with a few things. One of those are some check engine codes on her car. It appears we have the "dreaded P2002 and P0401" as well as P240F...
