    VW Mk4 Jetta, Golf, New Beetle, Passat TDI forum
    So I am at a dead end on getting my rear wiper to start working again. I had deleted it after I got the car due to the cost of getting a motor at the time. after doing some mods, I have found that having the rear wiper working would be beneficial. I bought a used motor and it did not work, got a...
  2. Post 5th gear change issues!

    VW Mk4 Jetta, Golf, New Beetle, Passat TDI forum
    I did a 5th gear change on Monday and it went well thanks to the information I found on the forums. As I expected I did loose cruise control in 5th gear, this was not a surprise as I had read in many posts and pages that this was likely. One thing that did surprise me was the loss of my AC...

    VW Mk4 Jetta, Golf, New Beetle, Passat TDI forum
    Hey all, 2004 Jetta GLS wagon with BEW engine. Car has always been very noisy and vibrates more intensely between ~1800-2000 rpm. I would say it increases in sound intensity by 2 or 3 times through this narrow range. If I set it on cruise control in this range the noise and vibration is...

  7. had to drive with damaged camshaft... what to look for during repair?

    VW Mk4 Jetta, Golf, New Beetle, Passat TDI forum
