      I hate to be the barer of bad news but I think, at the very least, you have severely reduced the life of your engine. Running an engine with less then the required capacity of oil, in this case 5...

      My guess is that VW is being strict on this requirement because this engine is gonna cut into their bottom line, severely, until they all fall out of warranty, probably why it was replaced with the...

      The type of gas that you use or your maintenance habits have nothing to do with this problem. The deposits on the intake valves are cause from oil vapor from the crankcase. The PCV system vents...

      This statement indicates that the switch was working just fine. Mine did the exact same thing. I could actually see the headlights dim! I hate to be a debbie downer but I doubt your problem is...

      Well, I guess that answers the question whether there is a low oil level light. I guess only the Europeans get that :rolleyes: The "stop engine now" alert means no oil pressure and probably means...

      This appears to be a hit or miss issue with the BPY engine like most of the other common problems with the car; cam follower, AC compressor, DSG. I haven't had those issues, yet. But I did get an...

      5 quarts in 6 months doesn't mean a whole lot. How many miles is that? I had new rings installed in my 07 a few months back. I was burning a quart in about 900 miles toward the end which was...

      I had the exact same thing happen to me one morning last winter. I drove straight to the dealer, about 20 miles in 20 degree temps with the drivers window down! The only thing they did was to reset...

      Take one look at this forum page. The majority of the posts are ads. The fact that this forum moves slowly is no excuse for it to be run over with ads! IMO this nonsense is destroying this forum...

      I had a headlight replaced under warranty too. I had the car in for service for a stuck window and busted clock spring and they also informed me they replaced a headlight that was out. There was no...

      It is strange that no code was stored, yet the dealer immediately found the problem. Perhaps their tool could read a code that your couldn't. What tool were you using? MIL lights illuminate for...

      Me too after I fixed an A-pillar drain hose leak. My Eos is out in the elements 24/7. I find lubing the seals once a year is plenty. Could probably even go longer. :thumbup:

      The release mechanism is incorporated into the switch itself. Here are the steps.

      1. Turn light switch rotary knob to "0" position
      2. Push the light switch rotary knob inward and while pushing...

      It does sound like a switch. The green auto light should be on in auto mode in the day time (when DRLs are on) The fact that you have to fool with the switch to get the green light is a good...

      I think I've noticed the clunk from first to second on occasion. But it's only when I accelerate hard with a cold car in cold weather. Since I rarely try to push a cold engine I don't experience...

      Maybe we should change the name of this forum to "Eos Parts" :rolleyes:

      Pretty much plug an go. You'll have to cycle the windows to enable the auto up/down feature and depending how long the battery is disconnected, reenter the radio code.

      Too funny, mine started to show serious wear after a short time so I stopped using them. And the passenger side never held anyway. I found my self spending more time re-strapping that one that I...

      I believe the issue is ice inside the door not on the glass. As slow as the Eos is to heat up a remote starter would probably not be very helpful. I've driven all the way to work (35 minute/20...

      My 04 Passat hit normal operating temperature in less then a mile. It takes about 4 for the Eos in subfreezing temps! My Eos is out in the elements 24/7, no garage :( My biggest complaint are...
