#23 of 178 Radio/AUX power unit failure
Apr 18, 2006 (4:00 pm)
Hi, i have a 1998 VW Golf TDi and to date the only problem i had seems to have been common-engine still ticking over with igition off/dead battery issue (sol:igition relay fault). However just driving today and mid-journey-stereo died as well as power sourced to bluetooth in-car kit. I know its a fault with one of the fuses but not sure which one feeds. I would very much like some help, ideally someone with diagram details so that i can simply replace the faulty fuse myself. Thank you in advance.

Hi there, my mk3 Golf GTI has exactly the same problem; it sounds sero=iously metal on metal banging; after several trips to different garages, the problem has been identified as worn suspension bushes on the trailing arms, allowing the banging to occur as the arm bottoms out against the subframe . I have been quoted about £230 to get it fixed, which I am going to finally do in the next couple of weeks....
Hope this helps - note at least 1 VW dealer failed to identify this problem !!!

#27 of 178 97 Golf K2: Clutch and Starting problem
Apr 27, 2006 (7:11 am)
I got this 97 Golf K2 and its been doing well, however recently its given me weird problems. First the coil was bad, got that replaced. Then plunged in $$$ to change all the spark plugs and wiring. Now, just this morning, I push down on the clutch to start the car, and turn on the ignition.... there is rough grrrrr grrrr sound... and it doesnt start right away, after a few attempts it runs just fine.
The gurrring seems to be coming from area under the clutch.
Please help. I am a student and really broke. Could it be a timing belt issue, since I already have 137,000 on it?

I have similar problem, have a mk3(95) golf GTI. My Central locking pump is staying on for hours sometimes overnight and draining my battery.
Do you think its the pump and needs replacing or the vacuum hoses that and loose or split making the pump over work??
#30 of 178 Golf Mark5 Indicator Stalk removal
May 14, 2006 (6:49 pm)
I am currently removing my complete dash cover from my Mark5 Golf.
To get it from the car, it requires (for ease of removal) to take the indicator & Wiper stalks from the steering column.
I already have the steering wheel & Airbag out, but I'm not sure from here as to how to remove the airbag clockspring & more importantly..the stalks...
Any ideas would be appreciated

#32 of 178 Emissions light
Jun 08, 2006 (5:38 am)
I recently purchased a used 2002 VW Golf TDI from an Audi dealership. The Carfax report looked good, including routine scheduled maintenance throughout the years, and it only has 46,000 miles on it after 4 years. However, after driving it for 140 miles, the emissions light went off. I brought it in and they replaced a plug that was full of carbon. I am not great with cars, so I am not sure what that means. Anyway, I was driving it home last nite and the emissions light again went off. Does anyone have an idea? Thanks.
