    Glow plug light flashing issue

    So where did you install your "cold air" intake? As I recall, the factory airbox already has a true cold air intake. Pictures or your set up would be good. Did your GP harness? It is easy for them to get knocked around/off. Do you have the VCDS reader? If not either get one or look up a...

    After 300K miles...Engine said goodbye

    She opted for the TDI. This one is a sweet ride. I am toying with the idea of selling my w124 300d for a CDI, or even an E300. Sad part, the replacement TDI got rear ended last night. Still drivable, but the bumper skin is mangled. The Lexus that his her faired worse.

    Memory Seats

    The seats work. Press the 1 2 or 3 moves the seat to the prior owners settings. I just want to clear the memory and reset to what I want.

    How do you reset or clear the memory on the seats? I tried to set a memory function, but it would not accept the input. I did follow the owners guide. Our prior Jetta had manual seats. Thanks!

    Our 2006 decided she did not wat to play any more. Engine dropped a cylinder while wifie was driving to work. We had the car since 40 miles. First major issue we have had. One of the bucket tappets shattered on the #1 cylinder. So we are replacing this 2006 with another 2006 with 132,000...

    HVAC Weirdness

    Compressor is not OEM. That one failed. But when running the VCDS scan, AC started working.
