Sounds like you have serious transmission issues here, have the control computer scanned (requires a special tester) for fault codes.

SOURCE: Brake pedal Goes lower & feels Spongy after

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

It sounds to us like your rear brakes are out of adjustment. This does indeed give you the feeling that you are experiencing.

Here is a quick and easy way to tell if this is indeed the case:

In a safe location, like an empty parking lot, stop, set the park brake, and then give the car a little gas. If the car moves forward at all, your rear brakes are not adjusted properly. If the car moves, you will need to take the car to a professional that is capable of performing a brake adjustment for you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

I need to remove the rear seat drivers side interior panel on a 2001 VW Cabrio to replace a hydraulic line for the convertible top. I have already removed the rear seat bottom cushion, the two screws on...


There are clips around the edges that have to be pried off. You use the trim tool to feel for them. when you find one, place the edges of the tool around the outside of the clip and pry it up. Get a trim removal tool from a parts store and ease them out, then the panel will be loose. Remember to take out the screws for the arm rest. Good luck.

Hi!!
Perform a tune up on the vehicle. If no improvement is noticed, check fuel pump pressure, Your VW is about due for a new fuel pump.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

VW engine stutters when stopped. It seems to lunge forward and it feels like it will stall. Any suggestions


If it is an automatic it is a transmission problems, The torqure converter is trying to lock up.Needs to be taken to a VW dealership, (only ones that are qualified to repair). It is possible that it will leave you stranded if not corrected.

Gearbox feels like it slips.


You indicated 1st gear. Is this a manual or automatic - as you didn't state that.

What do you mean by "it feels like its going to fall out"? What are the symptoms?

Have you check the level of transmission fluid?

Can the transmission be serviced or is it one of thos "life-time fills"? If it can be serviced and its an automatic, the first thing I would do is check the level of fluid. If its a manual transmission, I would do the same thing, but it would most likely be the clutch or throw-out bearing.

Fog lights


A detent is a "stop". The manual is telling you to pull out the switch until it stops. The rear fog lamp on my VW Polo works the same way. It may help you to know that on my VW (1) although the headlamps will come on without the engine on, the fog lamp requires the engine to be running, (2) the headlamp switch must be in the "on" position before you can pull it out to the detent position.
