Re: 2015-6 e-Golf HVAC 72F fix Tech Tip 87-15-02

Sonnen VW in San Rafael has fixed it for me twice - once on a 2015 and again more recently on a 2017. Doing it on the 2015 was a learning experience for them, but I provided the specific TSB and wording that others shared in this forum & they figured it out. One thing of note - the settings for ...

On the sidewall like **/*** R18 or ?
Thank you.
I'm not Egolf2015 but I can tell you the one I'm using is the T125/70R-18 spare out of a 2017 Alltrack.

Those are the same measurements on my spare as well.

Re: OEM Spare Tire Setup for e-Golf

Hopefully you will find, as I did, that the preventative benefit of having the spare tire is worth the time and money spent....my car hasn't had a single flat since installing everything just over a year ago!

Car-Net update on 6/2/17

Well, it looks like VW has done the impossible and made the Car-Net app even worse! First, after installing the update I was required to enter my email address and Car-Net website password, plus the 4-digit PIN. Not sure if that was a one-time thing or if it will all be required regularly. Here's a ...

Re: Multiple charging plugs won't lock.

I had a similar problem a couple months back and was able to determine that it was a mechanical issue with the locking pin getting stuck in the retracted position. Pushing on the pin with the tip of a screwdriver freed it up so that it was able to extend out again. I figured it would happen again, s...

Re: Radio resetting more frequent

Has anyone else noticed that the radio tuning itself to the bottom of the dial at start up becoming more frequent over time or is it just me? When the car was new it happened infrequently, now it has to be 2/3 of the time I get in the car. So annoying! Old thread but I see this happening on my car....

Re: Car-Net app updated (iOS version)

I've been going back and forth with Car-Net and VW since the app update last week, first about login issues and then about the "Remote" features being taken away. Every rep I've spoken with has told me something slightly different. Currently, Car-Net is saying that I am supposed to have 3 ...

Re: To plug in or not to plug in during vacation

The 2015 manual says you should ideally charge the battery to 40%-60% before leaving the car parked and unused for a longer period of time. It also specifically says to never park the car for 21 days or more with a charge level below 3%. I've also read that it is harmful to battery life to leave it ...

Re: Non-dealer mechanics for maintenance services? (20k,30K,

What service is needed? I doubt that a third party mechanic can deal with the EV aspects, and the other aspects should not require anything to be done. Here a link to the 2016 service schedule that someone posted earlier. The one I have for the 2015 looks the same, at least for the first few servic...

Re: Non-dealer mechanics for maintenance services? (20k,30K,

Thank you all for your input. I contacted VW CARE yesterday and after being placed on hold for 5-10 minutes, the rep I spoke with (Chastity) confirmed that having the scheduled maintenance services performed by a non-VW mechanic will not void the warranty. If someone who is not certified actually do...
