How you release this connector?

I'm reading about these "vipe SmartStart" apps and want to know more. Also, does a shop in my area put these in ?

Cool now it's just blows hot air A/C clutch & Compressor are working full of freon what's wrong

My lights come on when I start the car which I like is this common in 2008?

The button started not working and I was using a tool to push to open, the it didn't work like that anymore. So recently I used a little screwdriver and it pushed inside and I can't get it out and it won't work. I'm sad I can't use my convertible top. Can someone help.

Cannot charge phone both plugs not working

I just got home and pushed the button to put my top back up and nothing is happening. Is there a manual override or some other way to get the top to close? We are supposed to get rain soon so I need some ideas ASAP

I have replaced the MAP sensor, It initially had a leaking pipe which i replaced too but the car error wont go.

Before replacing the leaking tube, it had issues like jacking and hard start which seems not to be there now but the error is very persistent. Any advice?

how do your replace the latch handle, can't figure how to get clip in to secure the latch handle to release the hood. The original sheared off.

My mechanic says it is not the bulbs. It is somewhere in the harness. Replacing the whole assembly for both is 1000.00

There has to be a less expensive way to deal with poor design. Any suggestions?

have check the swotck scanned it no relay codes

I drive a 2008 Beetle, and I've begun to realize that I'm not the only person in this car with an auxiliary jack problem. I got it new, but I only recently discovered the issue because I never had a cable until now. When I plugged my iPod in for the first time, it worked great for a couple of weeks. Then, the sound started cutting in and out. I originally thought it was a short in the cable, because wiggling it into different positions helped. And that cable DID have a short. But when I replaced it, the problem continued. And I've used this cable elsewhere, so I know the cable is fine. It has gotten progressively worse, until now, someone in the passenger seat has to hold the cable in the jack 80% of the time, or it will fall out. It's almost as if the metal ring visible just inside the opening is loose. The trouble is, neither my father, my boyfriend, my car-savvy best friend, nor I know how to fix it - or if it's even POSSIBLE to fix it. It looks like you'd have to take apart the glove compartment to get to it. Is this something that can be repaired at the VW dealership? Or am I stuck with it?
