      That would be awesome! Thanks for offering to help!

      Hey everyone, whats the deal on mk2's always developing a rain leak on the passenger side floor board? Has it been figured out exactly how this happens or what needs to be fixed to stop the leak. If anyone knows, please get real specific. Tired of this sh!t.


      Oh, and hi Shawn! Yes, long time... Good to see that there is actual media verification that your doing something over there rather than surfing the vortex all day! Lol Miss ya buddy, be sure to hit me up on your leave if your back in the area!

      Are you sure it's a rain leak?

      When I was getting water in the Jetta, I grabbed a bottle of water and an air compressor. Start pouring the water along all the seams (door jambs, windows, windshield, etc...) and spray with air to see if you can find it. I know on the MkIII's there was an issue with the A/C not draining properly because a flap in the engine bay would get stuck/clogged.
      Back in the saddle again!

      RIP MkIII Jetta. 6 years, 160k miles and countless memories.

      I'm positive it's a leak from rain water. No leak from heater core. Has no trace of coolant. AC does not work nor does it get run ever. Leak only occured in rain. My old mk2 have same problem and now the Q... I suspect somewhere around the rain tray on passenger side but I can't pinpoint anything. This is such a common problem somebody has to have found the nitch!!! Ugh!

      Too bad that lawsuit for the MKIV drains doesn't go back a few generations b/c you could just take it to the dealer........and speaking of which...my appointment at Hewlett is next week and should be returned to me in same day.

      On another note.......we are adding another VW to the family Lauren's mom is signing the paperwork on an 06 Jetta 2.5L in black. Paint is in fantastic shape with only a few swirl issues on the truck lid and the miles are pretty low for an 06 at only 47K miles. One owner and certified pre-owned so she's in good shape. I'm so glad I convinced her to buy a German car

      On another note.....they have a MKV TDI manual up there with only 3k miles on it for less then 20K .....it was a salesman's company car and with the price of diesel going up as it gets hotter they dropped the price from the mid 20's. Car fax checked out with no wrecks or anything. This is a super deal if anybody is on the ropes about getting a new TDI. Its loaded!!!

      It's probably a combination of clogged drains in the door and degraded vapor seals; Do this->

      http://www.4130-products.com/step/vapor/index.htm

      While it's all apart clean out the drains, when it rains HARD and the water can't get out of the bottom of the door fast enough it overflows into the car....

      I still have to do this to my mk2... Door leak fixing party?

      after thought-> probably a good time to throw some dynamat (or equivalent) in there as well

      Hey fellow Austinites! I barely ever post, so I better make it good when I do...

      Don't why I haven't thought of this sooner, but this looks like it works if you miss/need the DIY or the old forum.

      It continued to do this the entire drive back to Austin randomly. 30-70mph speed didn't matter, even with cruise on. I'm not sure if it was placebo but it seemed to help to have it in M mode.

      Does this sound like the DSG issue, or something else at hand? I'm going to call Hewlett Volkswagen here in a few and explain to them what happened and see what they say. Any advice would be appreciated.
      Well if anyone cares, I took it into the shop. I told the lady I work with in the service department about the fuel valve recall. She pulled up my vin and checked and it had'nt ever been done. I was a little miffed. Last Friday was my second visit to their department, my 5k and 10k service. I would think pulling up the cars vin and checking any recall's would be standard practices. Oh well, its finished today and I'll go pick it up. Then off to my nephews graduation (damn they grow up fast).

      Thanks for the comments, and advice. One day I will make it out to the DH to meet up with yall. Back to lurking I go, unless my car explodes again soon LOL.

      On a side note, my loaner, 2010 Wolfsburg Jetta 2.0T, drives nice, bakes don't give enough feedback and feel spongy even though it does brake well, but its only got 500 miles on it. The options on this one were seriously lacking and it was made in Mexico. I thought Wolfsburg editions were build in German.

      Hey Guys!

      Before I go in, I have a 2002 GTI 1.8T AWP & I had no problems prior to doing work on my car.

      Maybe you can shed some light on my problem. 2 days ago, I replaced my MAF and spark plugs. The MAF is brand new from the dealer, along with the NGK plugs. So that night (after the install and yesterday, the car ran like a champ, even better than before I replaced those parts...

      ...fast forward to today. I was grabbing coffee before I ran errands, my girl waited in the car while I left the car running with the AC. On the way to my first and only errand, some jack*ss of a driver swerved in front of me and I slammed on the brakes. Immediately after I got an EPC light. I pulled over and turned off the car and looked under the hood. Checked the connections to the coils and MAF. Everything looked ok.

      When I got to the parking lot of the store, my car hesitated and the EPC & CEL came on. I turned off the car and left it be, while my lady shopped for a minute. Leaving the store, the EPC light was gone and the CEL was still there. As soon as I got home, I scanned it with my generic scanner and got a PO322. That's a speed sensor code, right?

      Anyway, I pulled all the plugs, regapped them and checked the MAF install. Took it for a ride & I tried to replicate getting the EPC light by hitting the brakes. I opened up the car on Mopac & drove around downtown for 30 minutes. Fortunately no EPC & no CEL.

      So my question is, did those lights come on earlier due to incorrect gapping of the plugs? Coils not plugged in securely? Maybe the plug to the MAF was not seated in tight? Or is it the speed sensor after all?

      Thanks in advance!

      Typically the EPC light coming on first means there was a fault in the electrical system. I got that when I hooked up the "4 brake light mod" on my R32. I was blowing the fuse to the brake lights due to a bad connection on the wires.

      So with that in mind, it could have been a bad connection with one of your coil packs, or maybe.....just maybe your one of your coil packs is starting to go? You'll know this if the car starts to run really rough...i.e. misfiring on a cylinder. If you think it is indeed a coil pack going forward make sure to get them replaced under the recall so you don't have to spend any more money.

      A final thought could be another connection issue with the MAF...just triple check the connector is clipped in place good and tight.

      Hope this helps.
