Looks amazing! Congrats!
It's only available as part of the valve cover, unfortunately. More info in the 3.6/4motion Resource Thread under Engine --> Maintenance:...
AFS = Active Frontlghtng System = headlights that swivel to turn with the car and compensate for heavy loads.
Definitely a galvanizing or paint application problem from the factory. Mine is 10/07 from Emden and has no body rust at all aside from one rock chip on the hood that I fixed earlier this summer. A...
It's got one from the headliner to the switch, then another from the switch to a circuit board on the panel. The first one was the problem. Guess I just need to eat my Wheaties.
Glad it was something simple! :thumbup:
Today I tried to take my sunroof control knob out today to see if I could spray some contact cleaner in there and stop it from opening on its own every so often. I got as far as getting the panel...
You see reports of rust issues every so often on these boards, but they don't seem to be consistent. Some have them, while many others from the same or similar climates don't. It makes me wonder if...
:thumbup: Good luck in uncharted territory!
Possible but I'd still drop the oil pan to rule out any pickup blockage, and run a full scan to see what else might be logging codes. Basically it sounds like it is objecting to being lugged, right?...
Did you check the wiring harness at the back of the headlight assembly?
Nice pick up :thumbup: How do the timing chains sound at that mileage? Have they been replaced?
Can't see the pictures?
What did the blockage consist of?
How did you get your hands on a 3.2/DSG in Florida? The US only got 3.6/09M auto transmission. Is this imported from elsewhere?
Mine don't do that--most of the water is diverted by the seal.
Nice find. Very interesting to see how everything goes together.
:thumbup: Nice detective work. Glad you got it fixed!
IIHS has nothing to do with any government, it's an insurance industry trade group. You're thinking of the NHTSA in the US.
Can you swap the positions of the two sensors behind the grille to see if the problem follows the sensor? That will help you narrow down whether it's a sensor problem or a wiring problem.
Just follow the time (every six months or whatever) instead of the miles (every 5000mi or whatever) in your maintenance schedule and you'll be fine. Like you said an 8 mile drive should get the car...
