    Hiya John! A lot of the time the airbag connections under the passenger seat get nasty and trigger the light. I'm assuming this is in your A4 and my experience is more with my A5 but I'm willing to bet they are similar with similar problems. I had to remove the front passenger seat to get at the...

    West Michigan Fall TDI GTG - Oct. 5th, 2019

    I'm 99% sure there will be someone there that can help in checking your timing via VCDS. I'd volunteer but I'm not sure I'll have a laptop by then. Just in case you don't know, the timing may not be the whole story on your smoking with many other contributing factors to be considered too. At the...

    As far as I'm concerned, the focal point of these GTGs has always been the people regardless of their fuel type used to get there. :p If VW in their infinite wisdom had offered the U.S. a TDI Tiggy, I would've been right at the front of the line to get one but alas, it is not to be and I wanted...

    I would also like to offer my services in this manner. Besides, I'm getting too damn old for the "Bellypanman" gig. :p

    11th Annual Detroit Auto Show GTG - NAIAS 2018 - January 20 (aka WINTERFEST)

    As an employee of MDOT for near 30 years (which I'm kinda embarrassed to admit) tell me about it! Without decent roads everything at NAIAS becomes moot and after all the lipservice from politicians, who control the purse strings, is over, they still don't take the problem seriously and punt it...

    Ahhhh... the early morning wake-up b4 a GTG :eek: Yes Robert I still remember fondly the "old days" of the epicenter, we've come a long way since the bad old days of "stealership" cluelessness and having only ourselves and these forums for guidance in working on these quirky vehicles... tearing...

    West Michigan Fall TDI GTG - October 2017

    Hey Kirk, am I correct in assuming the wheel guy will not be able to do anything as intense as welding on wheels? Another look at the offending wheel has revealed the previous weld repair is cracked right thru the weld. :eek: :(
