    Left unlocked overnight drains battery dead - SECOND TIME!

    You can usually save a battery if it's only been drained once. If you put it on a trickle charger overnight it will usually save it. You can get a cheap manual charger at Harbor Freight cheap. I have two cheap ones I picked up at a garage sale, let me know if you want one mailed.

    VW's definition of Inoperable?

    When I turned mine in, they had me start it (she couldn't drive a manual), pull it forward from the parking spot, she took pictures both sides front and back, and the dash with the milage showing and the engine running. Then she asked me to back it into the parking spot where I had parked it...

    question about how long the EFT refund takes

    Buyback Rejected

    That's why I chose EFT option, if you go over a milage band, they send you less money, no having to reschedule. I read somewhere they assume you drive 1000 is miles per month, and if you go more, you get less cash.

    No start - rescheduled buyback - need help!

    On another note, you can change the dealer you turn it at, and most dealers seem to be adding days they are doing buybacks. You most likely won't have to wait till February.

    Is there a limit on how soon you can set turn in appointment

    When you get to the step to select your turn in date, the portal knows the dealer you identified earlier. It shows you a calendar for the dealer with available appointments. You can change dealers, and it will show you the calendar of appointments at that dealer. I don't remember a user...

    Is there a limit on how soon you can set turn in appointment

    The dealer are adding days for the buybacks. I think they start with one day a week, and add them after a few weeks. Those of you scheduling now might have a better chance of getting a sooner appt. I scheduled mine around Thanksgiving, the nearest dealer didn't have an appt until Feb, a Dealer...

    oil extractor technique

    I use the smaller tube, and push it in until you feel it hit bottom. If you push farther it will curl to the back, but doesn't seem to get much more out. I do mine with the car flat on the ground, loosen filter and remove it so it drains to pan, suck out pan, suck out filter housing, then suck...

    effect on the tdi forums with sellbacks

    I already bought a 2013 Mini Clubman S to replace the Golf. I'll still be here but not as ofter. I still maintain an ALH bug and a BEW Bug for friends. I also have a diesel MB ML 320 so I'm always looking for a deal on diesel oil and such. I won't miss a lot of the moaning about how slow...

    02 Beetle

    There's no dipstick to check the transmission fluid level, I'd be tempted to drain the fluid, replace the filter, and refill with the correct fluid to the proper level. You have to keep filling it at a certain temp until the fluid drips out of the standpipe on the drain plug.

    First post ALH frustrations.

    Where did you get the new MAF from? I've had bad experience with cheap ones from eBay, and learned that it's better to spend the bucks and buy one from ID Parts or one of the venders who sell legitimate parts. Some people have had problems with folding of the MAF caused by K&N air filters...

    Any new info on what major stations still carry B5?

    About an hour away in Columbia is a Love's Truck Stop, they have the B5-B20 sticker on their pumps. They are NOT listed in the BioBuddy APP which is weird, not sure where the data comes from. You might check Love's website and see how close to you one of them is...

    How does the RCD510 code thing work?

    Each radio has it's own code, you'll need the code for the new radio, or there are eBay services that will get you the code for $15 to $20 after you email them the serial number of the radio. When buying a used radio, make sure they have a code for you. I have an RNS-315 if you are interested.
