    Dead Bluetooth on a 2010 Jetta

    So about 2 weeks ago my phone stopped connecting to bluetooth. When I press the button to start a voice command, it doesn't do anything. Tried another phone and can't detect the car via bluetooth either :( I thought maybe the module was hozed, so I bought a 9W7 module (to replace my US spec...

    Keyless entry stopped working

    Guys, My 2010 Jetta TDI remote entry stopped working. I wish my wife hadn't lost her key else I would check it as well, but mine stopped working. I replaced the battery just in case it was that, but no change. The little red light lights up, but no one home. Won't lock, unlock, or open the...

    Need 1 Continental Contiprocontact 225/45 R17 91H tire

    Guys, Hoping someone can point me in the best direction to try to replace the tire without getting hammered on cost. I live in a new housing development and I guess I got a nail in my sidewall sometime last fall. Car only had 10,000kms on it, so I'm thinking of just replacing the single...

    Ideas for helping me turn off my freaking lights!

    apologize if this has been covered before.. i searched and didn't find what I was looking for. I have a 2010 Jetta TDI sedan, and I appear not to be able to remember to turn off the lights when I park it. I remember 95% of the time, but sadly its the 5% that makes for unhappy times :) At...

    Recommendations on front fogs.

    I have a 2010 Jetta TDI (Sedan) and while the poor side of me wants to not meddle with the car, I'd love to get some front fogs on her. Does anyone have comments on this set? I think i'm looking at $250 for the kit plus $60 or so for the euro switch (of course they have to have 2190412...

    3M clear bras? Recommended?

    I know there has been a bit of discussion on the past for tint and 3M. Hoping to hear from some owners of VW that have clear bra. Happy with the results? How much of your front end did you do? I really notice whatever they put on my moms car and this car I saw when I was driving around last...

    News on 2009 Jetta TDI (Ontario-only)

    I know there is much banter in the news section on the 2009 Jetta, but you wade through 20 different topics and most of them are talking about the US. I'd like to know if anyone in Ontario has put a deposit down, what dealership, and did they have to pay over MSRP? Did the dealer give you an...

    Broken Mirror Advice

    I've got a cracked mirror (housing to car) -- it stays on, but I'm afraid some day it will fall off on the highway. Dealer has quoted 300+ to replace, but I'm tempted to get really good glue to hold it on -- but then I've heard thats a mistake if I need to replace the glass later on. I've...

    Many MAF's

    My 99.5 Jetta TDI appears to eat MAF's for breakfast and I'm at the point where replacing MAFs doesn't seem like the correct way to clear a CEL. In the 7 years I've had the car, the first lasted 4 yrs.. subsequently they seem to last anywhere from 1 month to 12 months. CEL code speaks to MAF...
