It seems that has happened a lot. My car was "wrecked" before I bought it and really all they did was hit a concrete stump. Didn't even come past the bumper but I am almost sure that's what did the mechatronics damage. Others have hit potholes etc and screwed up the mech unit as well. You would think that whatever it broke on the unit could be fixed. I'll bet it's a solder joint but all VW can do it replace it fro $2500+ Oh well at least it's not a Honda, right?
Quote, originally posted by twinkers » I was just wondering on vibrations / hard shocks to the system. Mine was wonky before but the thing that seemed to really kill it was going over a bad pothole lastnight. Maybe I'll try and find a high curb and drive off it in reverse to see if it fixes it Maybe if I do that "Ehhhh" thing the fonz used to do on Happy Days when he hit the jukebox might help too.
