    Outside temp isnt working in dash

    Outside temp just reads blank. And also the tire light is on in the dash, flashing several times during start up. 2012 - 6 speed. Where do I start? Thanks!

    Clutch / DMF question

    I don't. It's like a slight knock until there is the slightest pressure on the clutch pedal, then it's completely silent. Rockauto and idparts are my go-to and I'm looking around 5-600 either way. Clutch kit is only 150.

Finally ordered the timing belt kit, rear pads and rotors, and a headlight(thank you deer). Need to do a clutch...

    Wiper squeak - Suspension rattling - Fuel mileage drop

    Firstly, it's nice to see such a low number of open threads in the forums. Our TDIs must be holding up good! Ok, the wipers are squeaking. Not the wipers themselves, changed them today. It's as if a linkages have gone dry? I hosed down the visible linkages with some white grease, no change. It...

    Another DPF delete pipe

    Buzzken seems to be my other route... Just waiting for dieselgate to finish up. Almost pulled the trigger about 2 weeks ago, then had to replace my windshield (rock cracked it). That got me thinking 'i better wait until this emissions mess is over with'.

    Troubles with 2012..

    There were no codes found/stored. No CEL. After i bought the car, i put 304 miles on it with 3 notable rough starts and 4 or 5 dead misses while driving down the road. Followed by the no-start issue. Then it went back to carmax (14 days after purchase), and immediately to VW. It's been about...

    Troubles with 2012..

    Well... i got the car back this past Wednesday afternoon. Carmax sent it to the vw dealer, surprise. As i had said, i removed the fuel filter to inspect for debris, none found. The vw dealer said the fuel filter was improperly installed, when i know it wasn't. So they just reprimed the fuel...

    WTB: Mk4 jetta/golf, manual trans. Virginia.

    I'm looking for a mk4 jetta (preferably a jetta- NO WAGONS!) or golf (2 door only), with a 5/6 speed. I will not even think about having an automatic tdi. If it needs a little work, i can manage that. Not too worried about mileage... Under 250k would be nice. Cant spend more than a few...
