    How does this connecter for a backup camera connect to the RCD330?

    I recently upgraded my head unit in my 2012 Sportwagen to the RCD330, NONAME 187F model. It's been great. Now I've purchased this backup camera unit off of eBay. I've watched a bunch of videos on YouTube and read through plenty of forums to get prepared for the installation, but nothing I've...

    How to prepare for dealership with TDI

    I was driving home from visiting my family last night, about a 120 mile trip, and my check engine light came on with about 70 miles left. Everything seems fine. No weird noises, shakes, or anything like that, but I'm bringing it to the nearest dealer tomorrow since it could be an issue that is...

    Turn of brake light after changing brakes

    I just changed my front brake pads and rotors for the first time ever in any car. I'm trying to learn how to do some of the work on my car myself. Everything went well, except one thing: I didn't realize that the pads for the driver side have a wear sensor and the pads for the passenger side...

    I purchased a new radio to install in my car and would like to sell the old one (RCD-510) on eBay or Craigslist or something. Where can I find the code for the radio so that somebody else can install the radio in their car?

    What tool do I need to compress the rear brake caliper?

    I'll be replacing the rotors and pads on my 2012 Sportwagen soon, just getting all of the parts orders. I'm think I'm going with Power Stop's Euro-Stop kit, unless somebody tells me that there's a much better option out there for the same price. I know that I just need a normal brake caliper...

    Clutch pedal on the floor - how do I know if it's the clutch master cylinder?

    Went out to the Jetta this morning (all ready to go get a pumpkin muffin from Dunkin'), pressed down on the clutch pedal and never felt it come back up. I've been having issues with it lately (very soft, sometimes sticking to the floor), which I posted about and got some good insights, and I...

    Looking for a less "mushy" brake feel...

    My brakes are ready to be replaced and I'm trying to figure out what the best way to go is. I think the current rotors and pads are the original ones (85k miles) and the front rotors are warped. I'd like to keep the total price under $500. I'm pretty easy on my Sportwagen, don't drive it fast or...

    Clutch pedal stuck... just for a minute.

    I was merging on to the interstate this morning and I saw that the road was wide open, so I thought it would be fun to floor it and get up to speed. Once I shifter in to fourth, I let off the clutch pedal and it only came back about an inch or two. The clutch felt like it fully engaged, and when...

    WTB: RCD 310 Radio with Satellite & Code

    I'm wanting to replace the RCD 510 in my 2012 Jetta Sportwagen with the RCD 310. I know, seems like a downgrade, but I just don't like the touchscreen. Plus, it doesn't have the firmware update and the bluetooth bugs drive me crazy. Dealers are quoting me $150-ish to update it. I'm looking for...

    Replace RCD 510 with RCD 310

    I've got a 2012 Jetta Sportwagen TDI with the Premium VIII radio (RCD 510). I really dislike the touchscreen; it's hard to see in bright sun, I have to take my eyes off the road to find the right button, and I just don't like it all that much. Plus, I can't find a dealer who knows anything about...

    WTB MK6 Jetta Sportwagen Security Shade/Tonneau Cover/Cargo Cover in Cornsilk Beige

    Not sure what the official name of the item is: security shade, tonneau cover, , cargo cover, etc. It's the shade thing that goes in the trunk that you can pull over to block the view of what's in the trunk. My 2012 JSW didn't come with one. Not sure if they were made in the cornsilk beige color...

    Burnt out light on steering wheel control.

    Has anybody had one of the lights on their steering wheel multifunction control burn out? I have a 2012 Jetta Sportwagen TDI and the light under the left button on the right side of the steering wheel is out. Is there an easier way to fix this that just replacing the entire button unit thing-y?

    Where can I find this... overhead console button cover thing?

    Driving down the road the other day in my 2012 Jetta Sportwagen TDI with MT and I hear this rattling noise from above me. I touch the cover over the lamp buttons and the rattling stops. Then, I take my finger off of the piece and it falls onto the dash. It looks like all of the plastic clips...
