    Grinding Noise

    I have an issue that at first made me think I just needed a wheel balancing. I notice when I turned away from center, there is a noise and a vibration. It sounds like bearing grinding. Left or right, even the slightest angle away from center will cause this to happen. It is definitely not a...

    bad noise

    I can't diagnose the problem, but I'm thinking it is clutch or throw out bearing. There is a clunking noise that comes when the car is moving, but not under load. It is not noticeable in first gear. It is most apparent when stepping on the clutch and giving fuel, but the car has to be moving...

    Radio Coding

    Radio Coding

    The buttons on my radio were sticking, so I put in another one... OEM, same model that was in there. If it came from a car that did not have a CD player in the trunk, does it need to be coded with Vagcom to accept a Trunk CD player? It is not recognizing my Phatbox... Could be a phatbox problem.

    Turbo Actuator Question

    I recently took my turbo apart, and cleaned the inside. (Thanks for the great instruction from the club!) When I put it back together, it was moving freely.
