If anybody knows the answer, please help ASAP. I'm helping out a guy whose car got stuck at the KFC drive-thru. The parking brake won't release, and is giving me code 02443. Is there anything I can do to basically get him on the road? I've got VAG-COM.

Hi. I have a 99 passat 1.8T automatic. Suddenly I noticed that when I accelerate I can hear a faint "hissing" and when I release the foot off the gas pedal suddenly, it stutters and makes a weird squealing sound. The sound seems to come from the tires.

I have a 2003 1.8t that I recently chipped a few months back. Just recently I've been hearing a whooshing sound whenever I let go of the gas petal as if I had a bov installed. Is this a sign of a cracked hose or broken diverter valve?

anyone else experiencing this?
The problem I'm having seems to happen after my car has been parked and the emergency brake engaged (2003 V6 Manual). When I release the emergency brake and either backup or pull forward, after moving about 10 feet or so there is a single "click" that seems to come from the wheels (front?)...
Releasing cars delay - long for the Europeens and short for the Japanese.
Ok, so my title is a bit f'd up.
What I'm trying to find out is why do euro manufacturers show us cars then only release them 6+ months later to the public. Yet the japanese show a car to the press, and 1 month later...
