Hi,
the language can only be changed using diagnostic equipment.
if you have a diagnostic machine, you need to go to dash(some machines address17), then go to adaption channels(some machines adress 10), chanell number 4. this can be set to:
0...off
1...german
2...english
etc
hope this was some help
regards
P

I wants to know how you reset a vw touareg's clock on the dash


You need to press the clock button next to the tachometer gauge. The clock settings should come up on the MFI (multi-function indicator, located between the speedometer and the tachometer). Select your choice of settings using the thumb wheel on the steering wheel(hour, minute) and when done push the center confirm button on the thumb wheel to exit and confirm your settings.

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo, lights come one intermittently, horn came on unexpectedly and wouldn't turn off. How do I fix that?


Lights intermittent can be caused by switch or relay. Try swapping the Low Beam relay with another similar relay (horn relay is a good choice) to see if that resolves it. These relays are in the Junction Block--may be under the hood or in the car but not in the big box by the battery). If this doesn't fix it, the problem is likely the headlamp switch.

Horn coming on is usually caused by a broken switch or stripped wire insulation inside the steering column. You would usually have to take the steering wheel off to fix it, and this requires special tools; however, if the problem happens to be under the steering column shroud, you may be able to fix it without taking off the steering wheel. Take the shroud off and see if you can follow the black/red horn wire. Follow it as far as you can to check for stripped insulation contact with any metal. If you lights switch is bad, you can also change that while you have the shroud off.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Change of wheels and tyres on VW Golf


no i  can assure you the vw golf is very well made and will take those wheels on the car without any problems at all, it will also add a little more traction as the tyres will be wider so the car will handle the road a little better, i presume that vw are trying to rip you off as you seem a little vunerable but i think that it would not be a problem at all, hope that helps
