I have a center tank and we're considering cutting through the floorboard to gain access so we can replace the fuel pump. It won't run and we can't work on it where it's parked. I also need to know what part of the top of the tank the pump is in so we can cut in the right place.

my soft top doesn't work properly and when I open the doors my windows go all the way down instead of just a little.

Why is the Passat TDI not listed in the Select Model Screen???

Opens completely except for the top cover won't go down and going up it stops just prior to connecting with the windshield. Is there a manual override or system so I can get it to a shop?
