2007 Volkswagen Golf TDI Problems

Driver Door Electronic Switches Work Intermittently

The driver door wiring loom cracks and degrades with time due to weathering and frequent opening and closing of the door. This problem affects the normal operation of all electronic components of the door including, but not limited to:

-Electric Windows

-Electric Door Locks

-Trunk Release

-Fuel Filler Door Release


-Interior Lights Stay On at All Times

-Keyless Locks

-Power Side Mirrors


The correction for this issue is to replace the driver side door wiring harness. For security purposes, the doors can be locked with the key. The interior lights should be shut of manually, and through the multi function display in the gauge cluster to prevent battery drain.

Engine Oil Leaks

Engine oil leaks are common from the valve cover gaskets and camshaft chain tensioner gasket.

Odor from HVAC vents

A musty odor may be noted from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system after sitting for two hours or more due to condensation in the heater case. Our technicians tell us that a cleaner is available for the heater case and the drain system should be checked for debris.
