    Seat Memory Gone Haywire

    Unlocking my Mark V TDI with keyfob or door lock will reset the seat to an awkward position (I did not set it and it's unknown where that came from). Pressing any of the saved memory button (1, 2, or 3) once I am in the car will restore the seat position to my previously saved settings. The...

    VAG_COM or Torque Pro?

    An independent VW mechanic used VAGCOM/VCDS software on his laptop to turn off my xenons as DRLs (this was on a MKV Jetta GLI), then programmed the fog lights as DRLs. Would a Scantool/Bluetooth dongle + TorquePro app allow me to execute custom functions like that, and program my key-fob for...

    Where to find used OEM 18" wheels?

    I want to get used OEM VW 18 x 8 rims (Karthoum, Vision V, etc.) with the stock off-set (ca. 50mm) for my Mk V. I have not been able to figure out WHERE used 18" VW wheels are sold.

    How to change parking light bulb?

    I am not mechanically untalented, but I cannot get the driver's side parking light bulb out of the high beam cluster of my '06 TDI Jetta. The air filter body is making it impossible to insert hand or tool into the small space between light assembly and filter housing to lift out the dead bulb...
