Had the car running the other day with the hood up. Seemed to be making more of a racket then usual. I was suspecting that the BSM was staring to go. I have 300K on the car. I dropped the pan, from what I can see without digging too much deeper the BSM looks good. The chain looks fine, the...
Way home from work on Friday, as I was passing someone I lost power. GLowplug light started flashing.
Made it home and ran the codes. Got a P0299 boost pressure outside control limits, or something like that.
checked all the hoses, hoping it was an easy fix.
From the whistling noise, I'm...
Looking for a recommendation for which dealer to use for the Emission fix.
I've been holding off doing it on my '09.
But the time has come, particle filter light is on. I've tried forcing the regen with VagCom but it doesn't clear it.
Got a long drive ahead of me on Monday, maybe somewhere in...
Would a European wiring harness work for a CBEA swap into a Tiguan?
I believe the loom is for a 4motion. but at the end of the day a 5 speed DSG transmission should shift the same. I would be swaping engine and transmission from the Jetta so it would be a FWD.

Picked up what I think is a rebuilt transmission from a scrapped car. The torque converter had Oct 2017 stamped on it, and the transmission housing had C.A.C. stamped into it in a bunch of places.
Anyone know who CAC would be?
I installed it last week. Seems good although I haven't taken it...
Bought a 2015 Passat from a used car dealer. These numb nuts put a 15" Spare in the back. 195/65/15 Besides the tire size being wrong I'm pretty sure it wouldn't clear the calipers in the front.
Does the Passat normally come with a donut or a full size spare?
Was heading down to Florida on Aug 1.
Got hit doing 70mph on I-75 just outside of Lexington in the drivers door, then spun. The driver that hit us told me there was debris on the road (I'm assuming that he was try to avoid). By the time the cops got there he had time to think about it and told...
I have a Jetta that I bought from a salvage company it now has a rebuilt title.
I was wondering if anyone has any experience applying for the "fix" with rebuilt title and bill of sale from a salvage company?
Officially the rules say I'm not eligible for the fix. I haven't tried yet.
Just curious if anyone knows. I have a '09 that I'm pretty sure is not eligible for the payout because of the rebuilt title. But I was wondering would they still do the emissions fix on it? Is it an official "recall"?
I think they should, I know safety related recalls are done regardless of title.
Bought a salvage '09 Jetta a while back, fixed it but it was just parked in my driveway for almost a year.
going through the process of getting it registered but my receipts from the scrap yard don't have VINs on them. they won't do structural inspection without it.
Anyone have a receipt for...
saw it in their flyer. If any of you have young kids and need a booster. It's kinda neat to have a Recaro branded booster seat. Price is not bad either $85.
don't see it on there website.
Not sure if anyone has had this before.
I keep burning out GLow plug #1. Replaced the GP relay, still the same.
Any ideas where to look next. Testing power at the relay and it seems GP 1 has power on all the time.
