SOURCE: how do you change battery in key fob on 2002 vw golf

No problem. The key fob is two pieces. The key part and the remote. Open the key as you would to sue it. Where the key flips open you can see a small recess about where the line of the trunck switch. This is where the key separates. You can pull it off or pry it with a small screwdriver. Once separated with remote part in your hand this also splits in 2. In the same area you split the key off insert the screwdriver in this recess and the fob will open giving you access to the battery. Also can be done by hand. It is a little tight so you will have to force which is normal. No screws just clipped. Make sure the battery is positioned in the right way and that you have 3 volts when you test the battery. 2.7 volts will make the remote not work or act funny.

SOURCE: Change of wheels and tyres on VW Golf

Well, as someone (in my younger days!) who put tires of sizes not recommended by the car manufacturer, I feel bad discouraging your son from the 'awesome' tires/wheels he wants on his VW. It is generally recommended that tire size (diameter) not vary by more than 3%. If I did my math correctly, there is a difference in the sizes (diameter) you state of 5 %. Go to 'tire rack' website for formula and info to verify my rusty math skills! The speedometer would be off, due to the larger diameter wheels, resulting in a speed indicated that would be too low (less revolutions per mile). So, besides risking a speeding ticket due to lower speed indicated on speedometer, My main concern, would be that our modern day computer controlled engines base their readings on engine and auto speed, and it will be working with false speedometer readings.

Could be just the OIL COOLER. VW IS CORRECT.
If the oil cooloer fails internely you will have a mix of coolant and oil. In the engine and in the Radiator,

But not to say the other guys were wrong...

There is NO CHANCE that a "transformer" would cause the symptoms you are describing.
It sounds like you either blew a head gasket or the block cracked.
I hope you get cleared of the murder charge.

Hello There

It's the water pump. One of the most common problems with the VW/Audi's. It was never the head.

Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate me.

Audi A4 2.5 V6 TDI - Creamy grey coolant in expansion tank


Sounds like blown head gasket (or worse) still to me.
Remove oil filler cap and look for grey oil.
Never use water these days but special coolant. Water makes vapour spots and cause block cracks, worse then blown gaskets!!!
vapour does not cool very well.
Look like you have cracks already.
Take a compression test if possible. But might not show op at that temperature.
The gauge indication troubles me.
