Guten Tag,

I'm a delighted (so far!) new 2010 Golf TDI owner (Blue Graphite 4-dr., manual trans, sunroof, Xenon, cold weather pkg., Dynaudio, Bluetooth) and new to this (or any other) excellent forum, so I hope I'm not screwing up the protocol. I have read a number of other questions and may have some advice re: vehicle purchase issues and snow tires (we live in the lake effect snow belt of central NY), but I will reply to those matters elsewhere. I do have one question (for now!) related to the heated windshield washer nozzles: nowhere in the incredibly long and very German (i.e., thorough) owner's manual can I find anything about how they operate. Is there an on/off switch somewhere, or do they somehow sense cold weather and turn on automatically when needed, or what? Is the rear washer also heated? Or did I miss something on page 2,122 of the manual? My next project is to figure out the audio system and also hook up the cell phone I never use. I come from a generation where 8-track stereos were a big deal and the new-car learning curve for this old geezer is getting a bit steep. BTW, my first car was a red '65 Beetle, also had a '72 Karmann-Ghia, but this is the first VW since. This one actually has heat!

Thanx, and auf wiedersehen for now!

Welcome! The Karmann Ghia is a really nice car to have now...a real classic. The Beetle is too but nobody knows what the other one is.

Don't know how/when the heated nozzles work. I took a quick look through the manual and didn't see any references to how it works. If you dug through the electrical diagrams you could probably find out more detail.

Thanx, boss. If no one else has an answer, I'll put on my electrician's hat and see what I can find. Or maybe someone at VW might know. LOL.

I'm not sure how these heated nozzles operate. On some UK cars that operate when the heated rear screen is switched on. ;)
