    Comprehensive Golf MK8 Reviews & Discussions

    Yes I agree, all reviews I’ve seen say the HVAC controls will be touch controlled whichever infotainment is fitted, however the sales manager at my usual dealership seems to think the HVAC controls on the lower spec models are likely to be different and went on to explain this is why that...

    Comprehensive Golf MK8 Reviews & Discussions

    Worth remembering that ONLY the top tier infotainment system will be fully touch controlled, there will be a physical volume control etc on the lower spec (arguably more common) systems, the current pro system is also buttonless, although the HVAC isn’t part of the current pro my understanding...

    A citrus based multi purpose cleaner should clean it up.

    Terrible HID projection

    ^this, I tried all the aftermarket options with my old MK6 and was only happy once I finally fully retrofitted genuine hella HID Headlights with AFS.

    My thoughts are that the GTi and R will change the way people feel about the mk8, they’re sure to look nicer, with the mk7 I don’t particularly like the look of the lower end models but really like the GTi, R, GTD and GTE not so much but it’s still ok! Last weekend I went and had a good look at...

    A stuck thermostat is probably a good guess.

    Yeah that’s true, but these new models have them due to safety legislation.

    If you look just above the coolant reservoir on the autogefuel review you will see that the lower ball mount for the hydraulic hood strut is actually still there!, why would that be?, maybe some will have the strut fitted!

    Adaptive Cruise Control fault after manipulating fuse box

    The ACC is controlled by one ‘sensor’ which is a radar, On the golf it is either in the front lower grill (MK7) or behind the front VW emblem (MK7.5), there are no sensors anywhere else relating to the ACC!

    Phone storage?

    I regularly do this with my iPhone XR using the genuine VW cable (short one with a right angle plug on one end) and it doesn’t get hot, it is reasonably tight but the door does close ok, my iPhone 7 use to get hot while charging wherever it was plugged in!

    Maybe try formatting the card and download the maps again,, something hasn’t worked and the data is missing from the nav unit.

    Navigation database not available

    Mine displayed that when I wiped the card during a map update, I think it displays the same message if you take the card out so it could be that you’ve done as I did and completely wiped all data from it, I had to get a new one as it was no longer recognised as a genuine card so couldn’t be updated!

    What's happened VW?

    Have you tried entering your registration number on the GSFcarparts website? https://www.gsfcarparts.com/ They should have your rack available, will be around £500 but if you exchange your old rack they’ll refund around £200, if you try asking in branch though they may give you a better price...

    What's happened VW?

    Sounds as if you have been particularly unlucky with this car, maybe it has had a hard life prior to your purchase!, I understand that the power steering is faulty but what makes you think it is the rack? What are the symptoms? The infotainment issue is likely a software or touchscreen issue, it...

    KESSY - Driver Side Lock - Failing

    The handles can be removed by undoing a screw at the end of the door above the latch, should be simple!

    Thermostat housing and water pump fail.

    Although not all will have, I’d imagine at present most replacements already undertaken have been done so under warranty.
