I have recently purchased a Remus backbox to fit to my MK7 golf R. I purchased it from the Facebook golf owners group as an exhaust that would fit on my 64 plate R. I sent it to a garage to get fitted and they have told me that it will not fit onto my car as the place where they would cut the original exhaust would not fit in the Remus backbox and even if it did it wouldn’t work due to the original have flat spots? Here is the pictures of the exhaust below. Would anyone be able to help? Have I brought the wrong exhaust for my car? Or do I need the full system for it to fit?
New around here, recently picked up my 2014 Golf R 5dr DSG. The drive select mode button flashes when pressed but doesn’t bring up anything on any of the screens?
I have tried disconnecting the battery for over an hour and resetting the head unit by holding power for 15 seconds, also reset the factory settings on head unit with no luck.
Does anyone have any ideas? Or any idea how much they’d charge me at a main dealer to look?
for some years now I've had a weird intermittent grinding sound I've noticed coming from maybe gearbox or engine?
when you have it in drive stationary then put it in sport it gets more noticeable/louder you can here it from in the car and outside. the problem is intermittent and happens every so often was quiet for a few months now noticed it's back.
ive been back and forth with dealership a few times I've warned them about it a year after I bought it in 2017 went for a drive with tech and he said can't hear it that much, went back months later and luckily got them to hear it they had it for the day and checked it and said when they serviced they can't hear it now which was true for some time but as I said its back! any ideas on what it could be or if any1 else has had a similar issue???
Long time listener, first time caller. I have fitted a VW OEM highline reversing camera to my MK 7.5, and cannot for the life of me get the video to work. My vehicle already has park pilot assist fitted (not the auto park, just front and back sensors etc, the regular one, with wheel alignment on the screen for swing).
I have got the badge to activate using the rear reverse signal cable in the trunk lid, and powered using slot (18?) in the fuse box, all good, i hit reverse, the camera opens. great. However, no video appears. I have wired the video signal cable into the headunit in the glove box into slots 5 and 10 (or 6 and 12 i cant remember).
Now, the CAN wires in the CANBUS unit under the steering wheel was my issue. I already have wires into the slots I am meant to use for the two different coloured can cables. So, on the advice of the ebay seller, I spliced the cables into these cables. But I still get no video.
I also read that I should not activate low camera in the 5F menu, I should use adaption and activate a few settings in there instead, otherwise it wont detect the steering wheel position etc. However, no matter what I do, no video. Also if I don't activate lowline camera in 5F, the park pilot doesnt even show a black screen, it just shows the regular cameraless park pilot menu.
Does anyone have a better guide, or can explain like im 5, how to get this to work? I am assuming that the reason the camera video signal does not activate is either my bad coding, or that the CAN wiring is bad? I have looked for days, but cannot find anyone who has had this issue other than me. I am pretty confident that the unit is good, as it was a sealed VW part and undamaged.
So I ran over a huge rock or some type of garden stone left in the middle of the road. Went straight under the car and collided with the bottom just past the right side wheel. On the photo you can see it’s knocked the plastic off and seems to have hit the metal there that’s it’s quite badly damaged. Now I don’t know if I’m paranoid but the ride seems a little shakier when cruising or maybe it’s just in my head but really I just to know if this is something serious or not. Sad day for the new R ;(
