Any tips to help resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated. I just had new carpet installed with pad and now I am having trouble seeing exactly where it is leaking from

Did you ever find out what was causing this?
I also have a tdi golf 2008 model and came out to find all my windows were down this morning. This is the second time it has happened (and I've only had the car since March). I put the first time down to something I had done but now I'm not so sure!
I've read various reports and possible causes for this problem but wondered what the outcome was for you given we have the same golf model?
Any help would be much appreciated!

This happens to a lot of folks (including my wife) in a lot of different cars. There's typically a three-position switch by the dome light. One setting is Off (lights never on), one is On (always on), and the other is labeled Door(at least in my cars) so that the light comes on when you open the doors and goes off when you close them. Most likely your switch is set to On
#22 of 24 Does a rear-facing baby seat fit in the 2011 VW Golf?

I have no kids, but it's possible starting a family will be in my future in the next year or two. I really like the Golf. I just test drove the TDI and it's such a pleasant ride! Anyway, am I kidding myself that this could be a family car? Does a backwards facing infant seat fit in this car? If it does, does it mean my knees will be hitting my chin? Please respond if you know yay or nay. And tell me if I should really be looking at the Jetta Sportswagen TDI instead. I haven't gotten a chance to drive the Sportswagen, so I don't know if it's a good comparison.

Good question. I may be able to answer it very shortly. We have a one year old daughter who has to be in the biggest, rear-facing carseat known to man (Britax Boulevard). It actually doesn't fit rear-facing in our BMW X3. We've been looking to replace the X3 with a Golf so I may take the seat with me if we go to the dealership this weekend. If so, I'll let you know..
#24 of 24 All interior backlighting inop
Mar 24, 2012 (12:59 am)
all of my interior backlighting is inoperative. The dash, heater, power window switches. I have tried a known good light switch panel with no results. I was told by a mechanic that VW has a problem with loose ground plains, but the wiring diagram doesn't show a common ground for these lights. All other interior lights work. Any ideas?
