  1. Hi ! Thank you for your idea. I did already 1000 km. Most highway. Still the same. I will check on weekend . I am thinking to drain the system completely and do a refill With my vacuum filling system. I hope it works. Getting cold now here
  2. Ok . I understand difficult to locate this kind of problem. maybe somebody is able to tell me the location of the heating control wave. its in the engine bay close to the firewall or somewhere under the dash in the passenger side footwell. Thank you so much
  3. Hallo everybody! Recently I had to change all water hoses at the backside of the engine , including the T hose which is a very difficult work. Shop did it. Same time water pump was replaced New coolant. and now, no warm / hot air is coming from the blower. What it could be. I have already asked the mechanic. He told me during test drive it worked well. i checked codes, nothing checked coolant level, ok any help is welcome
  4. Can I jump in here please with a related question. When oil is topped off at the right level, after closing the hood, the oil warning light should disappear. But with me it doesn’t. Which sensor / harness is responsible for this issue? Thank you
  5. Recently happens to me. Out of nowhere the dash alarm for coolant appears. For me looks like the car lost almost entire coolant within some km. I try to fix it. For me no way. To tide there . Second , all these tubes there already 10 years old. Next accident is imminent. I let them change all on the backside. Because I was driving some km with very low coolant, water pump is gone. I ended up with 1200eur. Intake has to be removed
  6. It’s an old discussion but maybe somebody is willing to tell me what is the function of this pump? The additional electric one. Only feeded by the „rest“ Button or it’s running all the time/ specially when temp gets very high? Thank you
  7. This kind of problems causing fault codes for many many parts. That’s why I spent thousands on parts and work. In the end o believe the problem is a electric one. Somewhere ! Wet carpet? Water in footwell? Any electrical aftermarket stuff in your car?
  8. Many times this kind of leaks are the reason for a crazy shifting behaviour. The problem is always to locate the leak. Glad you could find👍
  9. How many miles on the car? I am thinking a bit in direction of your fuel pumps.
  10. Sorry just saw your post now. mine failed to work some weeks ago. My wife went to the next Volkswagen shop and they replaced it with a Touareg part. Works fine - cost half.
  11. I believe you will take away the intake manifold to get good access to your water pump. When this part is out of the way you will see the tubes.
  12. Just an idea. Maybe you try to get a flush of the trans . A simple oil change doesnt clean out all the very little metal flakes which are swimming around there
  13. Thanks god. Be happy that what seemed to be a big big problem was in the end a small plastic part
  14. Take out the mirror and check if something is in the way . But it sound more like the motor.
