2004 Volkswagen R32 Problems

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.

Odor From HVAC Vents

Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system.  Our technicians tell us the drain system should be checked for debris. In addition, a cleaner is available for the heater case.

Premature Head Light Bulb Burnout and Bulb Harness Failure is Common

One or both head lights may not work due to premature head light bulb burnout and/or bulb harness failure. Care should be taken to inspect the head light harness connector for damage when replacing bulbs. Damaged connectors should be replaced.

2004 Volkswagen R32 Questions

What would cause low fan speed on the A/C unit? Some say the "box" in the vent (1 answer)

Have had major work on the A/C system, sensors replaced, power module replaced, both fans replaced, full charge on gas. Even with fan pot on high only slight whisper of output through the vents....air nice and cold but relatively little air flow.

Wheel Bearing (1 answer)

Shop quoted almost $900 for a single wheel bearing, hub, and alignment. Is this right or are they trying to get more money? I've heard of people getting 2 bearings replaced for this amount, but not a single one.
