      If it jumped enough to bend valves, you wouldn't have that high of compression. Have you been able to scan it with a VW/Audi scan tool? Checked for fuel pressure?

      Whoops, I totally missed that one. I am guessing that you are missing messages that the AWD needs for operation. I have done that kind of work for some racing teams, and honestly unless you can...

      Well, you need to start with an ECU from an auto instead of a manual. While you could likely get the program swapped over to one from an auto, it would likely be cheaper to just get an ECU from an...

      If you hear the pump, that probably isn't the issue. I would suggest checking faults with a VW/Audi specific scan tool rather than just an generic OBDII tool as the generic ones won't show all the...

      My guess is that something is not going to be happy with this combination of components as they weren't designed to be used together. What faults are you getting now and/or what isn't working as it...

      The wiring for the rear diff only has powertrain CAN (what the engine, transmission and brakes are on), power and a wire to the parking brake control (I''m sure about the power and CAN, not 100% off...

      So it does crank, but does not start, correct? How many miles? Plenty of fuel in the tank (worn pumps often fail when the tank is fairly low)? Do you hear the fuel pump run when you open the...

      I have added the aftermarket auto headlights to a few Tiguans now. The switches that you get with them are usually the "Euro" style with positions for front and rear foglights and parking lights...

      From what I see you have a cam/crank correlation fault (camshaft and crankshaft out of time), MAF/throttle correlation fault (the volume of air going into the engine does not match what should be...

      If you really like it, take it to a good independent shop that specializes in VWs and have them rebuild or replace the head and do a timing belt and water pump job. Chances are they know that job...

      Whoops, lost most of us there. I don't think that there is much familiarity with the 1.4L Twincharger engine; in this forum anyway. That adds an additional layer of complexity. That said, the...

      The only "programming" would be coding of the door module if it was different from your original. That is trivial. Usually you just get a shell and transfer over all the internals from your...

      I bet that the issue IS that the waste gate flapper bushing and shaft are worn. These are not separate, easily replaceable parts, but parts that are pressed and welded on the hot side housing. ...

      Wrong forum. This is the PQ35 Tiguan forum. You need to post in the MQB Tiguan forum. I have heard that there were some quality issues on the early MQB Tiguans.

      Well, you could have a bad switch. I had that error with an earlier (mk5 style) in my '09 Tiguan, and the switch itself was bad. I swapped in another, and the problem was solved. I could probably...
