    1. The maf sensors were new Bosch units. What and where would you be looking for vac. leak? I have looked at the normal problem causes and not finding anything. I thought from beginning it would be vac. leak but have not found it yet. Car runs good, but hard shifting. 82 under hard load is low, right? Appreciate any help. Glen's VW Repair, Sedalia,MO. 65301 since 1969
    2. I have a shop in Sedalia,MO. I am having problem with 05 beetle 2.0L. It shifts hard(auto/tr)when it warms up. I had my vag-com hooked up and when driving 3000-4000 rpm in 3rd gear the maf # only reach 82 and I was thinking it should be up to 110-120. I have seen where one shifts hard that a maf sensor will cause that. The only code is 16555-fuel trim; Bank 1 system to lean. Customer could not leave car always in a hurry! If you have any ideas let me know please. I have tried 2 new maf sensors and did not help.
    3. whats up quick question would you happen to know , what kinde of resistor i can use to turn off my side curtain airbag off on my 2002 vw passat w8 , that airbag was blown out never really wanted to change it out just light is ANNOYING i got rid of the seat one already with 2x 4.7ohm 1/4w resistors and the fault went away, i tried the same for the curtain it says resistance too high , if i use 1 only resistance is too low so im almost their but dont know which is the correct resistor for that connector side curtain passenger rear
    4. Thanks again for hitting the nail on the head with the first blow.
