    Tire pressure sensors

    Read the manual and it seems I am doing everything correctly. No indication that the unit displays the questionable tire it does say that if the system is malfunctioning that the TPMS indicator flashes for 70 sec back to my original question is a false signal a common problem with my model

    Tire pressure sensors

    Hard to believe VW would use 2 different systems. How does it display the questionable tire?

    Tire pressure sensors

    Yes I reset the system after confirming all tires are equal. I also bought a tire pressure gauge. My Acura tells me the pressure in each tire to determine the questionable tire. Kind of a nuisance to check all 4 tires to look for the culprit. I have been giving it a quick visual check to look...

    Rear license plate

    Added a rear license plate frame to my newly acquired Mk7 Noticed it just uses 2 self tapping screws thru the plastic bumper. How cheap is that. You would have thought VW would have put some threaded inserts here for a more durable attachment

    Console door issue

    Well I finally got it fixed. Finally got the 2 electrical connectors removed. Door didn't fit the day I bought it about 10 days ago. Turned out to be a combination of broken tab on bottom and spring mechanism on passenger side. Plastic Tab was bent but there so I strengthened with super glue...

    Console door issue

    So I have got the door loose but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to disconnect the 2 electrical connectors on the back. One for USB and one for speaker jack. I am sure there is a locking pin to press or something but I cannot find it. I don't want to brute force pull it or I will be sure...

    Console door issue

    Re 2016 Gti the console door that covers the USB port seems to be off the track. Nothing seems broken but the door closes roughly and won’t latch at the bottom. I can see it is not square in it’s opening. Any tips? Searched archives and only found issues with USB cable interfering Randy
