      A very good question. And it's not just Phaetons. My Tiguan is showing similar symptoms - and that's only ever hand washed by me.

      I've not worked it out....

      Not quite that much... 960.... I think they wanted to get the difference back on the wheel bolts... but I defied them!

      A scan of the error codes would help. I think the experience on the forum is that the Webasto has a weakness in that its own control electronics built into the heater itself are in danger of...

      I would have thought that price would only cover the oil... synthetic engine oil is quite expensive. Don't know what the capacity of the V8 is, but I think both my V6 and V10 are around ten...

      Hi Paul - I converted my V6 which had factory fitted 19" to inspirations (17"). Before I got rid of the 19" wheels I tried them in the wheel well - and they fit easily. In fact the wheel and tyre...

      I had this on my V10 about 18 months ago. It was the rear left door in my case. Then miraculously a day later it just started working again...

      So I'm no help to you in diagnosing the problem.

      Paul - if you do the deal, you'll find that a 19" rim with tyre will fit fine in the spare wheel well. If you car was factory equipped with 19" then I think the wheel well will be full of a...

      Bruce - I don't think this will help you much as you're in North America... but there are lots at sensible prices of original Phaeton wheels on ebay.de Sorry if this is fatuous.

      But I do agree...

      I don't generally hear it on my V6 - but it's very obvious on the V10 when its cold (and it's very obvious there's two of them!). Next time I drive the V6 (probably next week now) I'll try and...

      Hi Darren - welcome.

      sounds like you won't need much advice on how to go about things.. just maybe the ability to cream off some of the knowledge and experience of the forum.

      I don't know if you can force start it with VCDS... but unless you know the trick to fool the controller about the bypass valve, won't it lockout?

      I think the safest way to test it is as per...
