      Penetrating oil. You can grip the outer part with vice grips because the part that is sticking out doesn't need to maintain a seal. When you get it out, you can soak the plunger but don't sand it or...

      I would have used dumb grips but I agree with Pete.

      Next time spray some penetrating oil on whatever is stuck and let it sit a day or at least overnight.

      The TPMS fuse was removed from 7579 when I bought it. It was advertised as "No pesky TPMS" or something similar. There was a little warning icon in the instrument panel and the TPMS page was messed...

      The first time I showed up with 7579, a bunch of guys came up to me to ask if that was my Phaeton. The parts guys know my VINs. The service advisors all used to know my VINs also (see below).

      SEM used to color match interior paint. I got a quart and a few rattle cans of the beige but that was around 2004. I also had some paint mixed up that was supposed to be good for leather and vinyl. ...

      Mice got into my 1988 Scirooco when it was in my parent's garage. I am the original owner and it has about 57K miles.

      The mice chewed the leather off the shift knob but didn't eat any vinyl. They...

      If I remember correctly on 8486, it was hard to get the triple square bolts just loose enough so the striker would move but stay put after I shut the door.

      It seems like when I tried to loosen the...

      You must have "the touch". I have to spend hours getting something like that adjusted. Do you put the masking tape over the striker and see which way it tears?

      Ah, UN ECE

      It's covered in UN Vehicle Regulations - 1958 Agreement

      Here is the index page (which is a pain to locate). The links to regulations is under the "Addenda to the 1958 Agreement"...

      The striker can make the door seem lower. When you close the door, the striker forces the door down because the striker is lower than it's supposed to be.

      One way to be sure if the door is...

      Backed into something hard enough to make the door not fit but not dent the door or damage it in any other obvious way?

      I would say that it's possible they could have bent it down but I think...

      Here's Standard No. 108 but as of 2004:

      That section I quoted isn't in the regulation in 2004.

      Do you have a Current Flow diagram for the car and another one for the engine?

      I would check the pressure in that tire.

      I am too lazy to look it up this late, but I think a 2 LB difference in pressure on one side axle will cause the TPMS to alarm.
