#2 of 27 Outside air temp display
Dec 14, 2005 (5:42 pm)
I have a 2002 Jetta TDI and would like to add an after market digital outside air temp display on the dash in place of one of the unused toggle switches. The installation space is roughly 1 and 1/4 x 2 inches. Does any member know of a source for this kit? ABordelon

I don't know about dash kits, but I have seen some that are incorporated into the rear-view mirror. Not what you asked for, but the sensor might work for your idea.

I have been looking for the same thing, but have had no luck. I want a wireless unit, so the sensor can be mounted behind the front bumper. The readout should be small and can just stick on the dash. Great idea putting it where a switch would go.
#5 of 27 1998 Jetta air conditioning issues
Dec 28, 2006 (5:00 pm)
Several months ago the A/C on my 1998 Jetta failed. I took it into the dealer twice for service. The first time they evacuated and recharged the system. The second time they replaced the expansion valve and thrust sensor. However, it still doesn't work properly and they don't seem to know what's wrong. The strange thing is this: The A/C doesn't seem to work when I'm driving at a high-speed, such as when I'm on the freeway. But when I begin to slow down, the system seems to kick-in. Any ideas or similar experiences?

I went to the dealer and they changed the cabin air filter but still smells anyone have an idea on this on? The carpets are dry car has not been in rain or snow for sometime.

I have a 2005 Jetta with approx 30k miles. Have had same problem with oder when vents supply fresh air and heat. Reminds me of when I visited my grandmother in a nursing home years ago. Could smell urine upon entering the facility. Similar odor in car. It was interesting to read your post. I will check cabin filter.

You better check and replace your cabin filter of your VW. To replace a Volkswagen air cabin filter in most cases it can be done in a few minutes with minor tools. Wear protective gloves and eyewear when servicing. To replace cabin filter locate the air cabin filter housing it is usually under the dash on the passenger side compartment or under the hood near the rear of the cowl. Air cabin filters are similar to Volkswagen air filter but cabin filters have better filtering qualities.
