      Is it just me... ? Part of me hopes there will never be another Phaeton.

      I had my intake manifold replaced because the variable intake shafts were binding which caused the plastic linkages to break. They are not serviceable so the only option was to replace it.

      I tested the rear antenna by plugging it in but have not mounted it yet. I'm pretty certain it will work just fine.

      It is not an extra tray; just a bracket to latch onto the smaller battery. Once the bracket is removed, a larger battery can be installed without any additional parts. The cable is long enough. ...

      What does it matter what came first? Most people don't even know what a Phaeton is. Not arguing, I just think that the badging is just fine. Here's a few more failed attempts. Photos are not mine...

      No offense intended. Without the VW logo and PHAETON lettering, it might as well look like the Buick.

      I think that the tool is not installed in all the way; not seated correctly at the base. Make sure it is inserted all the way and that the threads and pivots of the tool are greased. That tool...

      I have something like the tool shown above; haven't used it on a Phaeton but on other vehicles. A tight ball joint will still take a lot of torque on the tool to pop it loose, so much so that there...

      VloJoh,
      Actually, the initial picture shows that one side is marked on the shaft and the other side is marked on the joint cover. This is why I brought this point up. Glad you will get it...

      On my morning bike ride, I came across a freshly wrecked 04 Phaeton at a body shop in San Rafael, California. It's unfortunate but I was wondering if it's any one of our members here.

      Tommy,
      It shouldn't be that hard to find a replacement motor and drop it in for cheap. Thought you might want to consider that as an option.
