Hi Dan - What parts does my car need? I will call Peter at ID Parts to order them. Hopefully he can bring them with him.... My car is an 05 Golf; I'd like to replace the ceramic plugs.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Thanks for hosting!
I just called Dean and Kristina, the car (confusingly) had the recall done 2 or more years ago, but they did NOT replace the glow plugs. So the wrong glow plugs may still be installed, maybe original ceramics.
About all we can do is get an assortment of the possible glow plugs we may need to use, a new harness, and then measure the voltage and choose the proper glow plug.
Another option they may have, is to call their local VW dealer and tell them they had the first recall done but are having cold weather starting issues and get the latest recall/TSB done. This may be free. I have seen where one or two folks have been successfull with this. Also, I think the first recall ended up with an extended warranty to Dec 2012.
It is referred to as Emissions Service Action 28F6/T9 (formerly 28E6/R8). It specifies direct correlation with ECM software and glow plugs reprogramming and replacement.
