If your vehicle has a factory engine immobiliser the key has a transducer in the base of it that activates & deactivates the immobiliser so you will most likely have to get a genuine volkswagen key from a dealer to solve the problem.....hope this helps.....cheers

Dodge grand caravan 2005 filler neck replacement


1)Block front wheels.
2)Jack up the left rear tire off of the ground.
3)Put blocks up under the frame.
4)Take off the left rear tire.
5)Take out the plastic liner in the fender well that covers the fuel filler neck.
6)Loosen up the hose clamps on the rubber fuel filler hoses. (at the neck side); once the clamps are off plan on buying new ones. This next part of the job is VERY IMPORTANT! use a flat screwdriver and pry 360 degrees all around the rubber filler neck hoses. (they get kinda glued on from being on there so long). Next Get some PB Blaster lube or WD-40 (it has to have the small red squirt hose) and spray the lube up in between the hoses while you pry around. the more you do this the easyer it will be to pull the metal filler neck pipe out.
7)Now its time to take out the 4 bolts that hold the pipe on.
Use a 10mm socket and extension to take out 4 bolts up top behind the fuel filler door.
8)Pull the filler neck out and put everything back together the way it came apart and your done!

I have 2006 voltswagon jetta 2.5 it's got a small oil Leak coming from a small knoch on the bottom of the motor can the knoch be pplugged


if this small "knoch" is a hole then it is best to get a replacement sump. steel sumps have to be removed and properly cleaned and then it is possible to have it welded by a professional welder as the oil in the metal makes welding difficult. and plug considered will only leak when the oil is hot and may not be successful

Rear makes noise


If the little piece that is welded to the frame broke off from the frame, find a welder and have them weld them back up, shouldn't cost very much at all for a 10 minute job. However if the whole piece is broken, get a new one and have a welder weld it back up, cost a little more.

On 1987 300zx the drivers side steering connection that attaches to the main cross frame broke off due to corrosion.of the frame. Can a metal plate be welded on the frame and the steering assembly...


The direct answer is yes......but!

Unless you are a skilled welder, don't attempt this.

Get a really good welder to have a look at the condition of the metal before making any attempt to weld.

I believe some jurisdictions will not allow this type of repair to be made, so you might want to check you state and / or local inspection requirements.

At all costs, BE SAFE WITH THIS!!!

I fix the transmission but it still leaks the transmission oil


Did you replace the rear main seal? This is where it usually leaks transmission fluid. Unles there is a crack on the housing, which can be welded with a mig welder(Gas Metal Arc Welding). Welding aluminum requires the use of a mig welder, and inert gas called argon. The machine itself cost 500 to a few thousand dollars. I have one in my shop just in case I need to weld aluminum.

Should just be 4 bolts holding the seat to the floor, and unplug the wires. Only way to fix it is weld it, or get a different base from an auto wrecker.

Make sure the bolts for the slider are tight, the two on the door and the one on the body. If these are OK, then pull back the rubber boot on the body and if you see the metal is broken, then you need to have a body shop repair the broken spot welds. If the metal looks OK, then the door stay (slider) will need to be replaced.

Good Luck!
