1992 Cabriolet makes it a couple blocks then dies. The fuel pump is working so we have narrowed it down to fuel filter. Owner used to work for VW of Salem till his stroke. He cannot communicate but he still knows his VW. I don't. I have to fix it.

The components listed above have been replaced....

how do I turn off the windshield wipers on a Volkswagen cabriolet 1989, when its placed in the off position? the windshield wipers continue to move.

I originally put new main pump on which started whining after a week of driving and got hot and quit. I just replaced both transfer and main pump and after idling about 10 mins the main pump got hot and started whining. It will go away after a few seconds and pump will cool then start heating up again and whine. I replaced both pumps with quality parts. I don't know where to go next

My daughter was driving the car and the headlights went out and then the car died. The headlights will not turn on, the car will not turn over and the windshield wipers will not turn on. I can get the headlights to turn on with the bright light switch. The battery is new and it will not even turn over when I tried to jump it. The dash lights work, parking lights work and the radio works.

The owners maunal says you have 1.8 gallons left at the red mark. I have no red mark on my guage. the lines and shaded areaS are hard to read.

The vibration is felt in steering wheel seats and floorboard. When under load vibration increases, at cruise on level in city and over 40 the vibration ceases. No real noise is evident. Think it might be the torque converter??

I have a 1991 VW Golf Cabriolet and my radiator fan is not switching off. It's drained the battery. I have replaced the relay but still not switching off. I left it a couple of days, jump started it and topped up the water, it ran fine for about 20 mins then the fan kicked in again- it's really loud like it's on overdrive or something and the only way to get it stopped it to take the relay out every time I stop the car. Any ideas?

fuse has been replaced. I'm lost.

My car does a little noise and I open the cap on the top of the engine and it looses power and then it gets it back and I don't know what the problem with it is

I have an early 1991 Cabriolet (110K Miles) with a fuel tank leak, about 10 years ago I stopped driving due to leak. I live in Hawaii & and moving back to Ohio & plan on driving this car, will the 1990 recall cover the 91? Also do these things expire on a 20 year old car? Thanks

I have a problem with my friend's Cabriolet where the automatic windows on the side doors will not go up or down on the car when you press the switch. My friend says that the motors for the windows check out (he works on cars), but he says that a specific piece called the "celluloid" or "cellanoid" (not sure if I have the right word) needs to be replaced. I was wondering if you could help me diagnose the problem.

Does the piece go under a different name - like a "window regulator?" Is that the same piece? Is it a different piece? What do you think the problem might be? Have other '93 Cabriolet convertibles had the same problem?

Thank you, everyone, for your help :) I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Take care,

Hello, I just had the brakes redone, all new hardware, brakes and drums replaced in the rear. all new brakes and checked up front and new master cylinder and the brakes are still loosing preasure ( no leaks anywhere I've checked) when depresing the pedal it goes down and then will go down just a bit after that,, and the brakes will tighten up ( front only) on opccasion and can't figure out what it is. The only thing left is the brake booster and I am told it could not be this. Any sugestions ,, this one has got me.. I am wondering maybe the wrong brake fluid was put in it. Rudedog61@aol.com

I just want to return it to "normal", friend of mine says I may have to replace "springs"-whats that going to cost? And he said that he isn't sure but some of the years you could lower the Cabriolet by tightening down a bolt on the underside? Help!
