    My interior door handles are sticky, and no, they are not soiled. They seem to be experiencing some kind of chemical decomposition. Anyone else experiencing this?

    I'm guessing stickies don not count as posts in the Noob Tube?

    Tried using the ETKA posted in the sticky section. Nothing works. Is this my problem? Does everyone have the same problem? Anyways... Need help with the plastic anchors that snap into the lower edge of the doors that hold the door cards along the bottom edge. Front doors have (2) screws along...

    :thumbup: I did nothing to my Passat today by the way. The inspection sticker is expired. And I hope to have a new one tomorrow.

    I have a 2002 1.8 with a 5 speed. The car has 197k on it. It shifts great, but for some reason it sometimes sticks in 1st and 3rd. You have to tug pretty good to pop it out for the next gear. I'm sure the fluid has never been changed in it.

    The black interior plastic on my 03 has gotten fairly sticky. In particular the hard matte finish plastic like is around the shifter and ashtray. Has anyone else had this and if so, have you found a fix? Right now the best I have found is a coating of armorall but it comes back about as soon...

    I think we need to have a sticky with all of the steering wheels that will fit the B5 and B5.5 For instance I am looking at a 2007 GTI FARENHEIT EDITION wheel and would love to know if it will direct fit or if it needs modded. We should have 2 different lists, direct fit, or with mods. :wrench...

    My 2000 wagon's interior has this texture (stuff) on the hard plastic of the center console and parts or the armrests on the doors. It seems the older it gets it is breaking down and getting sticky. I'm trying to prep it for sale. Does anyone know a way to fix this?

    My center console is tacky/sticky, because the outer layer of the rubber coating has been worn away. There is actually color coming up (but hasn't peeled down to the actual plastic). Is there some sort of plastic clearcoat I can apply to prevent the color and tacky problems? Has anyone...

    Howdy :salute: As I'm sure many of you have experienced...VW uses really cheap plastic paint on interior pieces that has a tendency to scratch easily and can become very sticky if cleaned with the wrong products. Well, it finally dawned on me that I could apply an old trick I had learned when...

    My a-hole friends decided to sticky note my entire car a couple of nights ago.. and I took all them off but they left a bit of residue from the glue behind on the paint and windows. Used goo gone on the windows and it took it all off, but im nervous about using it on my paint. There isn't much...

    Ok, so I've seen there are "sticky threads" and "regular threads." What's a "sticky thread?" Also, I've not seen any "here's EXACTLY what I did." It's all been "yeah, your ____ is leaking for sure." But no explanation of HOW to change it. Is there a section like that? Finally, I'd like to...
