Finally got confirmation that the noise is coming from the gearbox so it's either output shaft or (more likely) differential bearings as this is a common complaint for this 6 speed gearbox. Will have to get it repaired at a transmission specialist.

I Think this is normal behaviour of a car which has upwards of 150/170hp. When you are in your 3rd or 4th gear your speed should be more than 40kmph below that the car might stall. The ECU is detecting the imminent stall and compensating by increasing the rpm and the speed of the vehicle , you do not need to press the accelerator for this to happen. ...

I drive My jetta (2015 S) in sport mode on the freeway (70 mph) if you use cruise control it will shift to 6th gear and without it it'll hold 5th. I have found no immediate damage. S is sport mode, changes the shift points. The smell could be the engine. Mine did it for about 1k miles. The flapping could be minor. Today I found the rubber pice under the ...

I am thinking either: A) The pedal/cable is hitting something B) The Neutral Safety Switch on the clutch being triggered is causing issues. What I would do: Google it (along with your year/model), find forums for your car and see if anyone else has had this issue. Check around your pedal/cable to see if anything is touching. Check the grounds on your ...

I read on a forum that the issue could be down to certain earth wires. When depressing the clutch pedal, you may be earthing a electrical line going to the sound system which in turn stops the music. There are various earths located in the engine bay. Check around the inner wings etc and make sure all of them are tight.

Most automotive suppliers should be able to tell you which bulbs you need. If you're in the UK, Halfords have a book on each shelf listing most major cars and the parts required, and they used to (I don't know if they still do) sell complete bulb kits for some cars - consisting of all the bulbs you'd need in a single plastic box. Generally, the headlights ...

I have seen this on a VW Passat. The problem in that case was a malfunctioning condenser fan. In cooler weather ambient temperature and air flow provided sufficient cooling to keep the high-side pressure within limits. At higher temperatures, there was not enough cooling, and the pressure went high enough to trip the high-pressure switch, at which point ...

@Paulster2 is spot on. The AC clutch has to be engaged in order to set the correct baseline for high-side/low-side refigerant pressure. I will add one point here that is often overlooked. The ideal thing to do is find out the mass of refrigerant that is required to fully charge the system, because that is really what the whole system is designed for. Here ...

It is the sound of the fuel pump priming and pressurizing the fuel lines, which is absolutely normal. VW likes to use the opening of the driver door to trigger fuel rail pressurization. In fact, one could use the absence of the sound of the fuel pump as a tell-tale sign that the fuel pump relay is not functioning properly. As @Paulster2 points out, either ...
