Question about 2007 Volkswagen EOS Convertible

Open Question

There is rattle/clunk coming from the area of the C-pillar on the left-hand side, obviously only with the roof up. Local VW dealer (Australia) seemed clueless and said it could cost up to $3000 in diagnosis, parts and re-assembly. Can you suggest a possible cause/remedy for me to offer to my local mechanic so he could attempt the job?

I would be most suspicious of the alternator pulley. These are known to have issues and will at some point just come off. You may want to check out this thread on www.tdiclub.com: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=139424

Hope that helps.

BTW you can drive the car without that belt until the battery dies, you just won't have power steering or AC.

SOURCE: 2004 VW Beetle power steering fluid

I would use the factory Power steering fluid.  However as long as the fluid is Hydrolic oil G 002 000 you will be fine.  Just take this referance number in and have your local parts store see if they can come up with comprable fluid to the VW power steering fluid

SOURCE: loud rattling noise coming from the engine

Are you losing power as well? if so it sounds like the camshaft is worn, this can be confirmed with a compression test

SOURCE: Hazard warning lights come on intermittently

your mechanic has only given you part of a possible solution...lock the car with the key and hold over for 30 secs then take key out,wait 30 secs then unlock/hold key over for 30 secs,the windows may go down. then use the remote to lock car holding down the button for 30 secs..... this resets the system

Hi,
It is a wiring fault, but they are looking on the wrong end. You will need to have a VW dealer "repin" the electrical connector at the throttle body. What this means is, the dealer will take apart the connector, cut off the old pins and crimp on new ones and reassemble the connector. This is a common problem on drive by wire VW's. The dealer has a bulletin on the problem and I don't know why they missed it. They will probably have to order the connector kit however. Good luck!

Everytime it rains hard my carpet is wet by the door on the driver side and also driver side rear door


There is a great possibilty that there is a leak on the Left Side of the Windshield. It is most likely in the area of the upper left side.
The reason for this conclusion is:
The rain water is coming in the Left Upper Side; and either coming down the "A" Pillar, or traveling underneath the trim on the inside roof and coming down the "B" Pillar.
The only other explanantion is a torn, worn, cracked or dislocated Weather Seal on one or both of the doors, allowing rain water to come in. Inspect very carefully these Weather Seals, especially on the top front portion of the rear door.
To help you locate these after a hard rain:
Take the trim panels off the "A: and "B" Pillars and the Roof Line above both Doors. Check for wetness underneath the trim. Or take these trim panels off, and place folded paper towels under the trim panels; reattach the trim panels and wait until it rains. Afterwhich, take these trim panel off and check the paper towels for wetness.
The Windshield Seal is easily inspected for cracks and tears.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Passenger seatbelt adjuster rattle.


Are you sure its the b pillar? When driving its really hard to hear noise's. This car is noise prone by the way.

A very common noise comes from the 3rd row lower seat brackets. Drive the car and check for noises from the 3rd row seat bottom.

2004 Expedition Sun Roof Leaks


you have 2 drains in the front that go down the a pillars and dump near the fenders.

The rear usually go down the B pillar or C pillar and out thebottom near the rocker panel.

Blow them out from the top with compressed air and make sure you have air flow at the exits.. Open the roof to see drain holes in the four corners.

-----------
  • The roof opening panel leaks
  • Roof opening panel adjustment.
  • Front rail seal.
  • Drain tube attachment points.
  • Roof opening panel water trough and seal.
  • Roof opening panel drain hose.
  • Roof opening panel seal.
  • Roof opening panel.

1 is the drain hoses

Convertible top rattles and pops.


the adjustments can be a bit tricky but there are a couple of things you can try.....lube all the seals around the soft top and between the windows ,a light smear of vaseline can get rid of some creaks and groans.also there are 2 metal pegs where the roof locates on to top of the screen if you can find some pipe that will slide over them cut it to about 5-10mm so most of the peg is still exposed, and slide it on this tensions the roof a little and can work wonders.hope this helps.

Rattle in/around passanger A pillar


Audi dealer solved it - the side of the bulkhead on the passengers door has a removable panel to allow work access and it was this that caused the problem.I have since purchased an A5 which has a rattle in the B column on the drivers side and it has been back to garage (twice) - It would seem that just because you are paranoid it does not mean that they are not out to get you.
