  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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👍
  8. How many miles on the car? I am thinking a bit in direction of your fuel pumps.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Thanks god. Be happy that what seemed to be a big big problem was in the end a small plastic part
  13. Take out the mirror and check if something is in the way . But it sound more like the motor.
  14. This sounds nice. I like snow so much. Here is nothing. No winter and Xmas feeling. Drive careful
  15. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY ! Thank you very much for your support and help during all this year. Without you I would be lost. Thank you! Thomas
  16. @Mark06111 & @Lewis thank you very much guys. Have found the harness connection behind the air pump. Should be easy to access. It needs a lift I guess to reach the sensor in the bell housing. HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR EVERYBODY!!!
  17. Hi Mark since 2 weeks I experience the same issue. Cranking several times before firing. Never had it before. Strange running car almost only when it was filled up. I got a code. P0335. Crankshaft Sensor. I could delete the code but the problem cAme back after some days. First i was thinking it is related to my faulty AGR Ventil. But I am shure it’s the sensor from crankshaft to dme. Bought the Bosch part. could you do the repair by yourself? What read at Pelican it’s hard to connect in the engine bay close to firewall. May i ask how you did it? Thank you
  18. Hi to Canada! Nice to hear that you solved this oil smell problem and the car is running good. Major task ! With this news you push me to overlook my valve and all connections again :-)
  19. Thank you Lewis. The Hitachi is fitting without correction of the water cooling lines?
  20. @Lewis how long did it take for you to replace? i remember you was very disappointed
  21. ALTERNATOR QUESTION. Sorry has nothing to do with the title of this thread but I didn’t want to open new one. i had my alternator replaced 2 years ago. Overhauled part. Is working flawless but makes noises from the very first day. The mechanic maybe should hear it before replacement but he didn’t. Now he is in and because it’s a pita to replace we didn’t change. Just the noise is a bit annoying. Is there a chance to replace the bearing without taking the alternator out of the car? Thank you
  22. The ones you mention are between 25 and 40 EUR. They look similar but they don’t work well. That’s what I was told from 2 different suppliers.
