      Up here in the "cold north" with sanded winter roads, cracked windshields is commonplace, and sometimes the radiators take a hit from a stone as well. Picking the car up tomorrow :)

      This is a known issue that is cured with a software update of the ADC. The radar is made by TRW and is rather costly. I had this problem on my 2008 and got it fixed with the update.

      Radiator leak

      I have serious drain now on the left side of the vehicle, and it appears to come from the radiator itself. Coolant consumption is approaching fuel consumption :(

      Has anyone replaced the radiator...

      Yes, the LH needs longer charging periods because a) it is drained continuously, and b) it gets charged directly from the alternator. The RH battery will get a charging voltage of 14.4V even if the...

      If your wipers look OK but the rubber of the blade is bad, just replace the rubber part. Any VW certified spare part shop have them, part number 1K0 955 429 or with a a B suffiix. They are 7 a piece...

      Isn't there a general "rule" that you do not tow a car with automatic transmission as the oil pumps in the box are driven by the input shaft? That would make sense to me. I shift to neutral quite...

      Yes, but it is chromed, so there is a chrome trim on it, which has the number I quoted. If it is the complete grill, then your number is correct for a 2004. For the 2008's and on, which have the...
