Re: spare steel wheel part number

I received a seller message –
"5Q0-601-027-BT-03C is for a temporary spare 3.5x18 ET25.
5Q0-601-027-BG-03C is for a full size tire 6x16 ET48"
Quite an obscure numbering system!

Re: spare steel wheel part number

Thanks for reply. Yes, we want a full drivable spare. in 4+ years of e-Golf ownership, mostly wife driving to/from her office, we have had at least 5 flats and 2 required replacing tire. Road debris (screws, nails) every time. No spare is not a good policy for her. I won't mind the slight height ris...

spare steel wheel part number

For our 2019 e-Golf, I would like to obtain a steel wheel for a spare, preferably one that would be suitable as a driving tire. Searching various sources leads me to confusion as to part number. I find these options among others – 5Q0-601-027-BG-03C listed as "16, w/ e-Golf" at $139 (MSRP $215) 5Q0-...

Re: Owner's Manual

We were able to save the VW online manual (in Safari browser) as a WebArchive.
Then loaded that into an iPad app (GoodReader) which accommodates many formats.
Works great!

Re: battery capacity like in a Leaf

I don't know about the Leaf, but in the e-Golf the lower dial on the right (#6 in the image) shows the battery charge in 1/16 increments –

Scary mystery sound ...

Our 2019 e-Golf SE, about 8 weeks old, just caused some concern. Wife was driving home from errands, stopped at mailbox near our house. When she started up, there was a terrible scraping sound from somewhere in the front end. Seemed more from left front wheel area. Sounded like sheet metal scraping ...

Re: Set delayed charge to be ready at 7 AM, but it stops at

Thanks tp both of you for the responses. I think that miscalculation of finishing time is part of it, but then it sure started late ... Anyway the 120V EVSE is now stored in the trunk, and we are happy with a $199 16A Level2 EVSE from Zencar (Amazon B075GJK2S9) which fits a 20A 240V receptacle we ha...

Re: Park Pilot is currently unavailable

We recently returned a fulfilled lease on our 2016 e-Golf after 30 months. Loved it except for the occasional 'Park Pilot is currently unavailable' – instead of backup camera. Complained to VW and dealer. Had to live with it. The car did not even have the Park Pilot system. Solution – 2019 e-Golf, h...
