      Hi Martin:

      It makes a lot of sense (once you are used to it) if you have two drivers using the same car.

      The rationale is that so far as exterior mirrors are concerned, the only difference...

      That differs from my experience with the 5 speed transmission on my W12. I know I added at least 10 litres of fluid after draining it, changing the filter, and so forth.

      If I recall correctly,...

      Chris:

      Since you are going to have to remove the cabin air intake plenum chamber cover to investigate the alarm horn, you might as well do the preventative maintenance needed to keep the plenum...

      Hi Cai:

      I have never heard of such a machine for changing transmission fluid, and the VW repair manual for the Phaeton does not mention such a machine.

      The process for changing fluid (as set...

      No, the picture links are very much alive (functional).

      On the Vortex forum, pictures are not hosted at the 'vwvortex.com' domain, which is where the body text of the forum is hosted. Pictures...

      Hi Cantrell:

      Your scan shows that you have different coding in your controller than I have in mine. I think we both have the same type of car (2004 W12, North American spec). Below is the data...

      Hi Thomas:

      Other than this discussion, there is not a lot of information here in our forum about the parking heater.

      But - there is a great deal of information about the parking heater,...

      Hi Mike:

      I can't help with any further information about the sensor (I am travelling on my moto at this time, and don't have any wiring diagrams, etc. available), but here is a post that might...

      Here's a link to an older discussion of oil specifications. That discussion is quite a few years old, the products mentioned might have been superseded in the meantime.

      Hi Cai:

      There is a bit more information about approved transmission fluids at the post entitled Changing Transmission Fluid, Checking Transmission Fluid Level.

      Although that post is specific...

      Very interesting what we have learned from the various posts in this discussion.

      It appears that if the refrigerant pressure is low (meaning, there is a lack of refrigerant in the system, not a...

      Hi Chris:

      If one of the speakers is open circuit (the most probable cause of a speaker not working), then yes, that problem would be explicitly reported as such on a diagnostic scan, complete with...

      Nic:

      Brian raises a very good point in his post above.

      What we have to keep in mind is that the TPMS measures differential pressure between the air that is captured within the wheel/tire and...

      Good point, Chris.

      Hi Chris:

      The fault associated with the alarm horn on controller 46 does not have the word 'intermittent' appended to it, hence, it can be assumed that the fault was present when you carried out...

      Hi Karl:

      I won't be back to Canada until late in September... perhaps someone else reading this can help?

      Hi Karl:

      To the best of my knowledge, no-one has ever had to change that controller before. But, it is quite easy to get at it - just follow the instructions in the pictures I posted earlier in...

      Hi Steve:

      I can only re-host photos that were mine originally - I have no archival record of GS340's photos.

      But - if you go and have a look at this discussion: Water in Cabin Footwell...

      Hi Karl:

      Yes, very relevant. I am beginning to suspect you have a defective controller 16. I can't remember ever seeing a report of that controller failing here in the forum, but all the...
