Bought it three weeks ago and can't get the home link to clear previous programming or program my garage door opener. It has power to the homelink because when...

    Thanks for all the help PWers. I did a lot of wrenching (relatively speaking) and the forums helped immensely. I can safely say I learned a lot and shed some tears too (no pictures no proof). Thanks again.

    Hi there, My strut spring broke on my way home, the car dropped down but was still "driveable". I took it slow and easy back to my house (5 miles or so), and noticed when coasting the car was riding Ok, but when when i was accelerating i was getting a strong shimmy. Got it home, swapped out...

    Hey all, Sorry about the awful title I'm just a little enthused at the prospect of finally finding out why the new CTS wouldn't fit into the flange (I think it's called?). I replaced the CTS 6 months ago and the new one wouldn't fit with the O-ring it came with and so I flippantly dismissed the...

    Hi guys, i know there are thousands of threads with light questions but this i couldnt find.

    Hey everyone, I have searched and have seen different things. Has anyone here swapped an AUG out with an AWM? If so, how did that go, did anything have to be swapped over (Mounts, sensors, wiring harness, etc...) or did everything just bolt up? Thanks!

    I am wondering if anyone has heard back from VWUSA after registering their TDI on the website? The statement that we would hear back in 4 weeks seems to be as accurate as the NOx testing. As an aside, though. I think my 2014 Passat TDI is a great car. I always wondered how I was getting such...
