But the latest is the drive shaft failure. The bearing bushing failed creating a knocking sound under the center console area. The dealer tells me the entire shaft must be replaced and the VW part is $1,750. I'm beginning to feel like a service tech annuity.
There are way cheaper solutions.. For all of that you replaced and changed during the years.. Search the forum
