      Here's thinking outside of the box. The filler interface is formed sheet metal that's crimped around a plastic neck. I'm thinking you could carefully remove it and epoxy another one in from a donor...

      Hi gents,
      For those of you who are having issues sourcing the shifter covers, you can cut your own holes. I cut mine as a temporary solution and they came out so decent, I never ordered the real...

      I think in theory, if you can ID the eprom chip on your old kessy, you could solder it into the replacement. That's how it could be done with some Mercedes vehicles.

      Cant recall but can the oil level be read with a scanner? That might be easier than reading the dip stick.

      I have to say the dip stick is poorly designed. With the end of the stick shaped like a capsule, it picks up residual oil from the dip stick tube on the way down, fouling it before you pull it out...

      The reason I ask is that if you are evacuating by extraction, it is not permitted by the VW which may indicate that this method may not be able to get all the oil out; although I cannot see why? If...

      Salah,

      Are you evacuating (extracting) or draining through the plug?

      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...
