Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

Thanks F1geek, that worked. I did it in stages, restart/soft reset of the infotainment system, then went through the menus to do the factory resets. Neither worked, at least as far as I could tell. In the time it took to go through all the menus and return all the settings to the way I like them (5-...

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

Update: found the part on e-bay (at a third the price!). Took it in last week and they replaced it. Still not working. They are now convinced that there is something else wrong and now want two to three days to pull the car apart and diagnose. Supposedly neither do the engineers at vw Canada. Anyway...

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

Yes, I've looked online, but when you contact the seller, either by phone or email, the ones I've contacted have said they are actually out of stock. As for the windshield, yes it has heat, but the side windows get fogged up if I sigh too hard. Running the fan sort of works, but only if I'm in the c...

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

So an update: Still no part, either from online, other vendors or from the dealership. No ETA either. Today I received an email from VW Canada in response to an email I sent them a number of weeks ago. They repeated what the dealership is telling me: no ETA. Once the weather starts to get colder and...

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

So my memory was obviously a little hazy; the part in question cost $117.50 plus applicable taxes, so from what I've seen online it's about right. According to the invoice the part number is 4mo-595-603-e So I see them online, so I'm not sure what the &%$@# is the problem. The first two google l...

Re: A/C Expansion Valve and Cut Off Valve

Hunh... so it is a thing. I was wondering. The HVAC on my 2017 is just out of warranty and has just failed as well, and the dealership told me "we have had problems with this model and its heat pump". The thing that gets me is that "they are out of stock and there are no valves left i...

Re: 12v Battery monitoring

Interesting idea, though I think the lead acid battery may be better designed to be drained and recharged to 100% (and kept there). Also, I have to admit that the little monitor I installed may not be the best when it comes to measuring battery level. So the numbers I gave earlier should probably ta...

12v Battery monitoring

Hi all, thought I would comment on 12v battery State of Charge loss after hearing from EV owners like tesla, leaf, and others about the 12v battery when left for long periods of time. I gather it's worse with the new vw id3. So, I was wondering why vw doesn't have a gauge or have the info listed in ...

Re: Driving 100% in B mode?

I know this is an old thread but I ran across a recent video from Bjorn Nyland that essentially supports my original theory. I think it is worth noting that driving in B mode all the time is equal to or more efficient than driving in D or coasting. If you can get used to having your foot on the acce...

Re: Build Thread: Performance e-Golf

I read a paper a while back from a guy doing wind tunnel tests for volvo that stated that wheels can be up to 25% of a vehicles drag profile. Of course that doesn't translate into 25% more consumption if you go with a certain tire/rim combo, just that it increases as you get more offset and design f...
