I had an issue with the balance shaft in my 2009tsi VW Jetta Wolfsburg, it broke! I'm in the process of replacing it, on the water pump side behind the gear there is an oil seal. What's the proper name of this seal and where can I find one? Thank you
i've set the timing, but when I rotate 1 full turn they no longer line up
I'm reading about these "vipe SmartStart" apps and want to know more. Also, does a shop in my area put these in ?
I am able to steer the car, however, when turning the wheel it makes a hissing sound. When I add power steer fluid, it literally running straight thru.
EPC light came on and the throttle no longer works. The o2 senser wire draged on the ground and got frayed. i'm not sure if that coused the problem or not. i replaced the gas pedal assembly and that did not fix the problem.
has anyone heard of this?
What parts EXACTLY for replacing my suspension? Does my Beetle need struts, or are they shocks, or strut shocks? What combo goes in the front and what goes in the rear? I need clarity on the exact parts/options for a suspension refresh.
What does the "2-3" mean? And how to change?
Why am i hearing like air pressure is filling up.. or maybe its leaking
I recently ran up on a curb I didn't see in a parking lot going probably 5 mph. Appeared to just have scraped the underside of the car but now I am hearing a random pop noise when I'm driving but more consistently when i initially put my car in reverse. Feels like its running fine but I'm worried there is damage. Any ideas on what that could be and how much it might costs to fit?
I recently helped a friend put a bypass kit for the EGR on his Jetta , as soon as it was completed we tried to start it and nothing except one small engine bump, does the ecm need to be reprogrammed after this action is completed for it to run?
My 2005 Golf GTI DSG has an rare issue that i found out, when my car is off and key is out of ignition, the Lights next to the Shifter is flashing in the gear that i left it in.

The first two refer to O2 heater circuits and the last three refer to throttle/pedal position sensor switch E, D and B respectively. The gas pedal does nothing but the car idles at about 1k. something caught some wires under the car that go to a sensor in front of and behind the catalytic converter and tie into a harness that goes up into the engine compartment and disappear into the firewall. I checked for continuity which appears good. Had to repair 1 broken wire but no change in the pedal.

Lights stays on and occasionally goes off but, concerned due to up coming trip.
Tried to start my car to go to work like I do every day. However, all I get is a clicking sound and then the dash board lights illuminate. Traction Control light illuminated, TPMS blinking then solid, and a yellow steering wheel symbol. This is the first time this has happened. I also randomly get a blinker light stuck on when I don't even touch the switch. Help!

I just bought my 2000 jetta and the person I bought it from told me he just had the automatic transmission rebuilt and now when I put the car in R,D,3,2&1 it sounds like a grinding noise & the car doesn't move. But the transmission sounds like it's spinning trying to go into gear, Could it be both axles?
