  1. Towing with Steel Suspension

    Off-Roading & Towing
    I just upgraded my trailer to an enclosed 7x16 tandem. I loaded it for a move from NJ to Florida. My T2 (spring) did well but the trailer turned out to be a lemon. Another story... The conclusion I reached was to install a Reece Straight Line Weight Distribution System with sway control. The...
  2. Uh oh... Hard shift into 2nd Gear!

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Using the Tiptronic worked. I made it through the gears with no bangs. Went back to Automatic and experienced the bad shift to 2nd. I have a temporary work around until I can get to the Dealer. Thanks Nooby!

  4. Uh oh... Hard shift into 2nd Gear!

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Well I thought it was just me messing with the peddle during acceleration but I can't deny that there is an excessively hard shift going into 2nd gear. This problem only gets worse the cooler the weather gets. It was 25 Degrees F this morning and that shift was more like a bang. The force...
  5. Fed Ex anyone?

    Off-Topic Forum
    :-kWell the ground bad eggs answering the service line phones and in the shipping/ kinkos / printing store gave me some really bogus information. And the three ground employees I spoke to explained the system this way. Apparently even the ground employees don't even know how their company is...

    Can you make a video of this?
  7. Fed Ex anyone?

    Off-Topic Forum
    I had a run in with FedEx this week while shipping tires I sold on this forum. They quoted me a price then did not honor it at the store. A little research later I found that in essence Drivers own their routes and Fedex stores are like franchises. As long as packages come through they get paid...
  8. windshield replacement

    General Maintenance & Repair
    I've killed quite a few windshields growing up. Stray sports equipment always seemed to find me. I can't imagine how much money that has saved me over the years.

    Too bad your not in Florida! Florida has a law for windshield replacement with no deductible.
  10. Passat in the snow - need advice

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    I think with multi season tires good common sense and a little snow training surviving the flat lands of Colorado should be pretty easy on the current equipment. Unless the OP takes his wifes car up Mount Evans Scenic Byway or Vail Pass during winter with snow on the road they should be fine...
  11. Hide a Kessy key next to the car when surfing.

    General Maintenance & Repair
    If you have a Tow Hitch there are little combo boxes that lock in the receiver for an extra key. The trick to blocking the keys signal is building a little Faraday Cage in the box. copper mesh if I remember works the best. This should keep the signal in the bag and your car locked till you get...
  12. Passat in the snow - need advice

    Auto Anything (Non-Touareg Topics)
    I get the lack of finances after a move. I am recovering from that myself. Denver is a great city and Colorado as a whole is top notch in my book. They actually know how to plow there! Your set up should be good. Just take it extra slow. Being a displaced Floridian I had to learn quickly how to...
  13. DIY Oil Change for 4.2L V8

    Touareg DIY and Technical Info
    I just finished my first oil change on my 2008 T2 4.2 FSI. The process went very smooth thanks to this thread. I took a few pictures along the way so everyone can see the slight differences between the two versions of the 4.2. These are the tools I needed for the Job: -Screw gun for quick...
  14. Unknown Broken Part... Any Ideas?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    You are correct! I had to pull teeth at the dealer to get them to take a look but they confirmed that no rubber hoses were in danger. I will look again probably tomorrow when I change my oil. I will take both under-body panels down and do a good inspection.

  16. Unknown Broken Part... Any Ideas?

    General Maintenance & Repair
    Found this sitting on top of the rear plastic underbody pan. I was checking if I had all the right tools to change my oil in the next couple days. I took the rear underbody pan down and found this lovely unknown broken part sitting on top of it. Anyone have an idea what it could be? I plan to...
