    Hello UK, Yes, I meant the ignition switch. I wrote you because I had the same problem this year - the engine started for a few seconds, then died. I went to a garage and they started looking for what's worse, in the engine. Finally, they found out it was only that stupid ignition switch. Of...

    TDI starting problem - getting desperate

    First of all, let me tell you that the fact that your glow plugs light didn't ever turn on doesn't mean it shouldn't. You may have, like most owners of B4's, some problems with dash lights, more exactly, bad contacts on dash. Of course, this doesn't help a lot to solve your problem but you...

    Rear springs check

    How can I figure out if my rear springs are weak? When I cross over gaps or railway I have the impression it doesn't sound too "healthy". It seems like driving over much bigger gaps than they actually are. My rear shocks are almost new (I've changed them 5 months ago)but my front shocks are...

    Hello Andi, Thanks for your reply. I've already changed my oil, everything's fine. I even have the impression my car sounds better, but of course I may be subjective. As concerning the weather, I can only say I'm glad I don't live in Moldavia. Later,
