1998 Volkswagen Golf TDI Problems

Check Engine Light Due to Issues With Glow Plugs/Wiring Harness

Because of issues with the glow plugs and/or the glow plug wiring harness from the control relay, the Check Engine Light may illuminate. Our technicians tell us there is a service bulletin, not a recall from Volkswagen regarding replacement of the glow plugs on 2004-2005 model years only.

    Power Window May Fail Due to Window Regulator

    One or more power windows may fail. Our technicians tell us this is commonly due to a failed window regulator which will require replacement.

    Inspect Brakes at Every Service as Rear Brakes Wear Out Quickly

    The rear brakes tend to wear out quickly; rotors may need replacement by the first brake job. Our technicians recommend that the brakes be inspected for wear regularly.
