  6. Passat cc reverse camera stuck open

    HI....welcome to the Forum I'm not sure on this one, would probably contact your VW dealer and see if there is a revised version that resolves this issue. Seems to be an issue with this camera across the range so surely they must have revised it over time

  10. Mk5 r32

    Hi Rob Common problem this one, but can't seem to find any definitive answer but suggested faults lie in the Haldex controller or even the oil level being low in the unit....worth checking out everything related to the electrical connections to and from the unit. Let us know what you find

  12. Polo radio code

    Hi You should be able to obtain the code from a local VW dealer.....may have to go in for them to look it up and take the registration documents with you but otherwise they usually do this for free
  13. Polo spluttering on pull off

    I would check for a vacuum leak as this could cause the symptoms you describe. Listen for any hissing under the bonnet
  14. Front coil spring

    Hi Andy Have a look at these springs on Euro Car Parts they all say with or without sports suspension (Sportline) so I would say that this is the only limiting factor to choosing a replacement unless you go for lowered springs. https://www.eurocarparts.com/coil-spring Let us know how you get on with it Cheers, Trevor
  15. Hi all - advice / suggestions needed

    Hi ....welcome to the Forum The only simple solution I can think of is Airbag suspension as a bolt on which would raise the vehicle and maintain the ride height Beyond that, sorry cannot think of any other way

  18. High clutch bite point

    Hi Depends on the year and model of VW as some would have a self adjusting method for actuating the clutch.....it could be that which has altered over a period of time. Just watch the pedal doesn't drop to the floor which is also a common fault on some models
  19. Vw Passat 2012 automatic gearbox software update

    Hi Niall....welcome to the forum It suggests that there is an issue with the engine and its gone into Limp Home mode. I would scan any fault codes after clearing the memory to see if it is current or just a glitch. Let us know how it goes
  20. Hello, Am new to the forum. Today my Passat 2012 2.0diesel automatic displayed the ignition coil symbol and lost power. Car does not go over 40mph now and feels like the clutch is slipping. My mechanic ran the computer on the car and picked up fault code p1741. He told me I need be to update my gearbox software. Can anyone shine some light on this, as I am very worried at this stage and lost for what to do. Is this costly and who should I contact. Many thanks niall.

  22. A/C vs climatronic question

    Hi...welcome to the Forum Simple answer.....I'm not sure! What are the benefits of replacing the system?
  23. Lupo problem

    Seized linkage joints? Worn engine mounts? Play in linkages? Clutch worn or damaged? So many possible causes, I would drop it in a garage to have it checked out before you can't select gears anymore.

  25. Vr6 issues

    Hi....welcome to the Forum The fact that it is 'on song' at higher revs suggests that it is something like a vacuum/air leak in the in the inlet manifold or associated trunking which is causing the lumpy running. A quick emissions test (Oxygen levels) which if higher than zero suggests thats the fault. Let us know how you get on with it Cheers, Trevor
  26. Spares

    Hi Dave If you list them in the appropriate section (e.g. Golf, Polo,etc) that would be the best bet Cheers
