    Ok, so all my doors have this happening now, where they don't open on the first pull (mostly after initially unlocking). I know how each door has to reset back to its original position before the door can be re-opened, and about the indexed cable on the outer door handle, and have played with...

    After many years of drooling over keithwblooms car and some others in here, I pulled the trigger on a set of PSS9's for my '04 GLX.

    I followed the standard procedures for replacing the door lock actuator mechanism in the drivers door (see steps below). I did something wrong, because when I replace the lock cylinder it won't lock in place and stay. I turn the set screw all the way in but I can still pull the cylinder out...

    Bought car with 138K kms from auction last Sept, no history on vehicle. Threw some fresh oil and plugs and drove it for the winter.

    Just had new tie rod assemblies and an alignment, new tires, all tires equally inflated. I still end up going right. Swapped the tires to test -- now it goes to the left. What are some key components for me to visually check to make sure nothing is damaged? I recently acquired two torque...

    My wife had a 2000 passat and now has a 2005. The 2000 unlocks the doors when the key is pulled out of the ignition. The 2005 doesn't do that. I have VCDS. Is there a way to make this happen in the 2005?

    I got in the way of a cop trying to change lanes, and got pulled over for "changing lanes all crazy". I had to hit the brakes cause he was starting to merge into me. Half way though my conversation with the cop (2 min mark), I pushed the record button on my dash cam to show him I had...

    Only in a Volkswagen would this ever be a problem. I just installed a new head unit/radio and SOMETIMES when I pull my fog light switch out to turn my fogs on, the windshield wipers will comb over once or twice. Excuse me? I really don't even understand how this can be possible. Has anyone...
