Volkswagen Golf Electrical/Lighting Questions
I've also read postings from several others about the pause inbetween shifting. I've had that problem since I bought the car and no service shop could tell me what caused it. It is a nuissance (sp??), and could be a dangerous one if you're not used to it, but I'm glad to hear that's its 'normal' I guess. Also had the problem with the mirror knob breaking off, headlights and taillights repeatedly burn out, rear cv boot/control arm needing premature replacement, my window track cracked and window fell down into the door, etc... If anyone else has problem with the window track DONT try and fix it yourself, VW has a service bulletin out for it and will fix it for free if you ask. I had a mechanic friend take my door off to look at it, then when I realized what it was I took it to VW and they refused to touch it since I'd taken the door off (even though I didn't touch the window mech., those jerks).
