      On my 2012 SEL, I enabled the "raise/lower windows" function with a long press of the keyfob. I have folding mirror hardware installed (the standard NA OEM modules, not the one that allows keyfob...

      One of my criteria in 2012 when I bought mine was that I could fit my golf bag in the cargo area w/o folding a seat down. Looked at Rav-4, Kia's, etc. All of them fit my criteria EXCEPT for the...

      See the threads on "Timing Chain Tensioner". The crappy ones were redesigned sometime in the middle of the 2012 model year. The ones with the older design are a disaster waiting to happen, avoid...

      I'd avoid anything built before 2012, as the TSI engines have the problematic "timing chain tensioner". The design was changed somewhere in the middle of the 2012 model year. Plenty of posts about...

      Do you have access to a VCDS Ross-tech cable to do a scan? That would be a first step rather than taking it to a dealer. It is similar to an OBD scan tool but might require less power.

      The one and only time this ever happened to me was in a Minnesota winter (-10 deg F) in a little rented Pinto. A common issue in that neck of the woods - it comes from the residual moisture from...

      It may be beyond the warranty mileage, but I hope it all works out. If you would, ask who the warranty servicer is. I have those Fidelity folks, I think for 70k miles. My dealer told me that I...

      Can't say for sure on this, but if you can get an electrical schematic, look in the fuse box under the hood (on my 2012, it's near the driver's side towards the firewall). There's sometimes two...

      There are some threads kicking around here, but the general consensus was DON'T DO IT. I doubt any stealership has a system they install, and as you may know VW electronics does not play well with a...

      Anything except the "official" cable from Ross-Tech is (a) pirated, and (b) virtually guaranteed NOT to work with the latest VCDS software, use of which is required for getting any kind of help here....

      I mentioned an "inspection plate" but all they found was the cover that appears to be what you need to remove to replace the part. Do you have a reference or a picture I could show them?
