vehicle is off the market as its been sold
We figured out this problem and fixed it 2 weeks ago - cost nothing to fix other than a little bit of time.
For those of you with power trunks, you should open the wiring harness where it goes...
Just fixed the problems 2 weeks ago.
There were 2 issues:
1) small passenger side camshaft leak (very small leak) - opened the camshaft and changed all the seals - problem fixed. Less than...
I just posted this in the Classifieds but posting it here for everyone else just in case.
Everyone in the forum has been extremely helpful over the 4 years I've owned the car and I want to thank...
I am selling my 2004 Phaeton that I've had for 4 years - I am the 2nd owner.
Bought with 72,000km, currently 235,000km.
Had Real Driver Platinum warranty and have replaced a lot of items under...
No snow or ice on the car - no debris and I just had the plenum drains cleaned a few months ago as I did have a blockage. This problem, however, DID NOT HAPPEN before when the plenum...
Well looks like its 2 issues
- v113 flap motor is sticking (and clicking)
- back of camshaft seal is leaking which may be contributing to the smell
What am I in for here? I've already had...
It's a 2004 v8 regular gas - not a diesel
A few weeks ago this problem started.
After I start the car, warm up a bit then drive, there are exhaust fumes that get into the cabin as you can smell them.
It's happening more often now. I...
I just had a problem come up a few weeks ago where the check lights indicator comes on.
We've narrowed down the problem to the white reverse lights not coming on when the car is in reverse.
I just hit 220,000 km.
Is there no one else in this forum with high mileage on their Phaeton?
I'd really like to know if anyone else has this much or much more mileage to know what to expect.
My extended warranty ended about 20,000km ago and I'm at just under 210,000 km (owned it since 70,000km).
The biggest fear people who own Phaetons have had is what the cost would be out of...
I started my car this morning and I got the "fault running gear workshop" message immediately followed by another warning about the headlight motors or something like that.
Seeing as those 2 would...
That's a lot as I just had one replaced 2 months ago.
I just had my rear left bearing go at 200,000km (about 120,000 miles) and the bearing only cost $300 with about $200 in labour.
BUY FROM CHRIS!
I purchased my warranty from him for under $4,000 with a $100 deductible.
My extended warranty just expired but his warranty was responsible for almost $30,000 of warranty work,...
I have an intermittent noise coming from the center of the vehicle that sounds eerily similar to the "seal bark" noise that comes from a bad transmission. It can't be coming from my transmission as...
still replacing the bearing - on order as the noise is getting louder
that's excellent - thanks very much John
one of my front headlight bulbs is dimmer than the other one - they are only 2 years old
new bulb at dealer is almost $300 - where can I find a cheaper OEM one?
