You should join our airfield breakfast group on Saturday mornings, we're all trying to out-curmudgeon each other!Didn't you notice my official title? It is my job to make a federal case over it.
Anyone else have their headlight switch break?
Mine will not turn off of the "fog light" setting.
Fog lights are not on and full headlight system is always on
(when the car is running.)
If I leave the key in the ignition after I shut off the car the parking lights stay on.
Sorta afraid to take it in, in case they ding me a couple hun. for a new switch.
I've actually had it aligned twice after hitting a rock and blowing out both left tires and then later I drove over a curb during poor visibility. I know, you'd think I shouldn't be driving. In my defense, these are my first blowouts and curb strike in 25+ years of driving. Anyway, the bind did not start immediately after any one of these. Quite a bit after the rock and way before the curbs. The alignments seem to have zero affect on the bind.Most likely your steering problem is the alignment. Mine was off and it caused the servo steering sensor to create a slight understeer, but quite annoying. Left was towed out .1 degree, right was toed in .1 degree. Do yourself a big favor and have it aligned. Set toe to zero! You won't believe how much better it will drive.
This just happened to me!This happened to me too. Cut my hand pretty good, and the metal/plastic pulled away when I pulled my hand back. Dealer replaced under warranty. It just wasn't rolled over the edge far enough, I guess.
I don’t and it’s certainly an issue. I feel bad for the drivers I inadvertently blind. Poor design. Numerous folks on the much busier GolfMk7 forum have said the same.I don't believe that is an issue.
High beam indicator is the only blue light on the dash, wherever it is located I find it very easy to see.
I just did mine for the second time (I have two Mk7’s).FYI the cabin filter is located above the glovebox, you have to push up on the two catches inside the glovebox to allow it to drop down and expose the door to remove to replace the filter.
it is not under the removeable panel UNDER the dashboard like it was on the mk5-6...(first place I checked)
and it is NOT under the cowling, or under the water/air deflector snap in piece, it can be seen under the plastic grille that is held on by 3 10mm nuts on studs under the deflector... but you CANNOT replace it through the cowling...
a little you tube foo later and I learned that it is behind the glovebox, and easy to get at once the glovebox is emptied and the catches get released... UGH.
If you have the stock halogen lights, it's a testament to how poor the high beams are on them, that you can't tell if the high beams are on or not!I don’t and it’s certainly an issue.

Not at all. I have the same problem on my GTI with HIDs. If the high beam icon was more prominent and closer to the driver’s line of sight, like on every other vehicle I’ve ever owned in my 30 years with a driver license, instead of tiny and buried down to the left of the instrument panel like on this car, there wouldn’t be an issue.If you have the stock halogen lights, it's a testament to how poor the high beams are on them, that you can't tell if the high beams are on or not!
Thanks! I have a "new" '15 TDI and was wondering where that little bugger was ( I was looking in the footwell... :-/ )I just did mine for the second time (I have two Mk7’s).
Those tabs can be a bit tricky if you don’t understand how they work. Each tab has a top and bottom half. Perhaps you were able to pull up on the top half of the tab, but it was much easier for me to pull down on the bottom half. I found that the top half was fixed while the bottom half was the flexible part, if that makes sense.

That’s become a problem here as well, primarily when city slickers get out from under all their lighted roadways. They freak out and think it’s OK to leave them on all the time.Since I'm finding more and more drivers use their high beams all the time, I don't think the indicator light is doing a lot of good, no matter where it's located.
That's a common problem with Asian cars and I don't know why they don't fix that!My rule of thumb is that if I can see the lights, front or rear, of the other car, the brights are off. If you can't tell the brights are on from the driver's seat then your lights aren't doing a very good job. One problem that we used to have is that the dash lights were always on in our CR-V. More than once we got flashed by the cops for not having lights on at night.
I've figured it out with help from Audi and other VW model forums. Turned off the Driver Steering Recommendation (DSR) and no more 12 o'clock bind.My 2015 GSW while driving straight has a slight bind to it. It is annoying at the most. I doubt bad enough to ever cause a collision. However, it will take a bit more effort to make small corrections left or right in order to stay between the lines. My 2011 JSW did not do this and also had the electro steering assist. The problem is intermittent. I bought the '15 at 99 miles and didn't notice it until about 5,000 miles ago. It's at 13,000 miles now. I was going to have the stealership look at it for the 10,000 mile service then opted to do that service myself. I still plan to take it in for the steering bind and a flaw in the paint where the right rear fender meets the rear bumper. But I am procrastinating due to the whole dealing with the stealership thing. Anyone else notice this bind?

Great find, Thanks!I've figured it out with help from Audi and other VW model forums. Turned off the Driver Steering Recommendation (DSR) and no more 12 o'clock bind.
