Re: Circular marks on the rear (hatch) window

Thanks snAKes, the video was really cool. I have been in an Intel factory, and for fear of copycats, they never allow any video to record the production processes. They call it intellectual property.

Hatch door stuck

I can hear the release mechanism work when lift the VW logo. But door stays latched. This only happens when the sun has been shining directly onto the hatch door. :roll: Anyone have this and what's the dealer say is the fix? Just an adjustment, or high cost part and labor? I did figure out after hea...

Re: Oil Change Interval

And I thought I over analyze! Geeze, leave the oil in there and just keep up with the Bi-annual brake fluid changes. THAT matters, you don't want to have to be replacing brake components that fail due to water corrosion pitting the surfaces. Basically oil and coolant are lifetime, no scheduled chang...

Re: High-voltage discharge while car is not used

... You should probably lock the car in the future to be sure it goes into deep sleep. It would also be useful to get an OBD dongle to read the pack voltage. Probably good plan because I hear some kind of coolant pump running frequently just sitting in car without power ON How to learn about the OB...

Re: SPARE TIRE NOT!

I use Tire Rack and get great customer service ( and the right tires). so how does that work? they show 3 steps: select, order, ship does a non corporate shop work the best to have it installed? does the free road hazard really work?

Re: "Dramatic" reduction in cold weather range. Why?

NOW I am lucky to squeeze out 160 km in moderate weather (around 0 - plus 3 degrees), at times even less, maybe 150 km I have just recently tried to experiment to see what the heater draws. So i made the Emgr heat cabin from 70F to 80F while plugged into a L2 charge point after the car had charged ...

Re: air conditioner and water drain

Dealer said something about the drain doesn't end at a hose to the outside. I forget the specifics, but that it drains onto that thick felt mat covering bottom of car, so there won't be any dripping. Sounds weird but whatever.

heater while charging

Hi winter driver, is it complicated to get heat while charging by using Energy Manager and Departure time? Only once so far has it worked. Well, that once was when I came back to car 4 hours later at the departure time. It was toasty inside and I felt heat only coming from the long vent on top of da...
