  1. Is the handbrake indicator light on the dash lit ?If not check the microswitch under the handbrake lever.
  2. There is a chance that the electronic fan speed controller is defective, than he automatically switches to full speed. The controller is located in the airstream between the fan and the condenser inside the AC unit.
  3. The question is whether the flywheel is not loose relative to crankshaft flange, defective dual-mass flywheel, loose torque converter/broken mounting plate (starter ring) if Tiptronic.
  4. A little thought about this, the flywheel is however fixed according to the indicated values? What JFP in PA quotes is definitely true.
  5. This is just an adaptor, the leak probably comes from the fastening system between the vacuum tube and the adaptor.
  6. For ROW cars: ignition on, engine not running. So it should go.
  7. I think that button is not available separately, in that case a scrap yard can offer a solution.
  8. Are you sure the plugs are wet with gasoline? The system works as follows: after a number of misfires the system will shut down the injectors concerned, it is therefore not evident that they are wet with gasoline. There are still more options as motor oil, coolant, gasoline contaminated with gas oil or other fuel. Be sure, first of all, that this pure gasoline.
  9. The microswitch is built into the luggage compartment lock, you can try to lubricate the switch mecanism preferably with a dry lubricant as teflon spray or the like.
  10. If still Original, should be Torx.
  11. Do not forget to check the catalist of the respective cylinder bank for clogging or breakage.
  12. Sitting above the fuel tank/steering rack, there will be no water penetration inside the car but it will be a mess (oxidation) up and around the tank/rack. Without the drain tubes the water is after all no longer channeled.
  13. Given the fuel system management using calculated values, it is recommended to refuel the car with the ignition off in first place.
  14. For this is a pressure gauge with the appropriate connections required and a measuring glass and timer for the flow. Unfortunately i have no specific values available at this time, it will be available trough the piwis system where pages of the workshop manual will be made available, be subject to payment. Hopefully someone has the values here in the forum yet.
  15. For Tiptronic: brake lights ok? - brake light switch ok? fuses ok? For manual: clutch pedal switch ok? fuses ok?
