    Wheels and offsets

    I found a set of snow tires on these wheels for a Tiguan which are 5x112 with an offset of 33, however the factory MK7 Golf wheels have an offset around 46.. How much of a difference will this make in handling / effect on ESP? If I'm understanding offset correctly, this would place the wheel...

    MK7 AC Values thread

    So my AC seems to blow not *quite* as cool as it should, yet I've heard others say they have a cold AC. Virginia heat can be brutal. So I wanted to see if we could get an AC values thread. Today my AC was blowing nice and cold - colder than it usually does. These were the values: With AC on...

    MK7 GSW trailer wiring

    Looking to install trailer wiring and I found the Curt 56360 for the MK7 GSW Alltrack looks remarkable similar to the Curt 56373 for the MK7 GSW which is no longer made. If the connectors are the same, I'd think it would be as simple as modifying the wiring on the Curt. Curt 56360 (MK7 GSW...

    MK7 clutch towing? options? smf?

    Within the next few years we plan to tow a travel trailer not exceeding 3500lbs with a MK7 GSW 6MT. I'm wondering how the factory clutch holds up towing? Would you convert to a SMF? I've read places that the SMF lead to transmission failures, but wanted to see if there was more information...

    Feeler: Part out or sell? 2000 Jetta TDI 260K VA/NC 5spd runs

    So I listed the car for sale on offerup for initially 1500. After two weeks no offers, and at $1000 quite a few, but at that price does it make more sense to just part it out? (uneducated buyers who have NO idea about TDI's. "I can drive it with a leaking water pump though, right? it's not...

    How common are HPFP failures? Resolved with newer versions?

    Hey folks I remember the days when the HPFP failures started, and it steered me away from ever wanting to upgrade (who needs THAT kind of headache?) but I'm wondering if subsequent versions of the HPFP are more reliable. Is it still an issue? Is it now routine maintenance to replace it along...

    Had that dream again, the one where I replace a heater core...

    I had that dream again I was replacing the heater core on my 2003 Jettawagon. What concerns me is the heater core is original, and I've never replaced it, and that's perfectly fine. Is this dream foreshadowing of things to come? If not, why do I keep having this dream? The last heater core I...

    Turbo oil seals blown after intake cleaning - whose fault is it?

    Hello TDIclub forum. I'd like your input. I cleaned an intake on a 2000 Jetta TDI yesterday. It was narrowly clogged - down to the diameter of a pencil at one point. The vehicle has 260,000 mile on it, and the intake has never been cleaned. This morning I took the car for a test drive. I...
