Radio button bubbles

I'm a Florida College student, my radio buttons on my jetta have bubbled... is it the heat?? If so VW needs to make a car duarable for ALL weather Conditions, I think this is a defect. I have leased my car and will turn this car in December... So I will follow up witht his matter.

    I have a 2006 VW Jetta and my buttons have bubbled and peeled off over the last 6 months to a year. It look terrible.

    The finish is bubbling up and has come off in places on my stereo preset buttons. Is there somewhere I can buy replacement pieces for this?

    I have the same problem with my 2006 Jetta about the radio button bubbles and also some buttons bubbled over on the side controls on the door. It looks really bad. How did you get it resolved? By just taking it to the dealer or did you have to contact someone at VW, like a corporate office, directly?

Hi I have an 08 vw jetta 125 tsi the turbo doesn't

I would check the pressure blow off valve to see if it is stuck partially open. check hoses for holes or leaks where clamped. Also if you have a inter cooler for this turbo check it for cracks or leaks a pressure check of air to the cooler then spray with soapy solution to look for bubbles no bubbles after cooler good.

2003 vw 18.t temp lights goes on but temp gauges read normal

If your coolant overflow is bubbling then regardless of what your gauge says you are having overheating issues. If your coolant is missing with no aparent leaks then you need to check your oil for a milky consistency and apearance which would most likely point to a blown head gasket. This would also explain overheating. Hope this helps

2007 vw jetta radio code please!!!

Send the request via email through this site these guys can help or go back to dealer and get them to get it for you.
Below is procedure once you have the code:

* Turn on radio -- the word "SAFE" will be displayed.

* First press the MODE button and then press the SCAN button and hold them down simultaneously until "1000" appears in the frequency display. Release the buttons. Do not, under any circumstance, continue holding the buttons down or press them once again. This would cause the radio to take the number "1000" as the code number.

* Using the first four radio station buttons, enter the code number found on your Radio Card. Use button 1 to set the first digit of the four digit code, button 2 to set the second digit, etc. The first digit of a four digit code must be "1". If your code number has three digits, the first digit on display must be set blank.

* Once the code is shown on the display, press and hold the MODE button and SCAN button simultaneously until the word "SAFE" appears in the frequency display. Release the buttons. A radio station frequency will automatically be displayed. The radio will now play once again.

If, when cancelling the electronic lock-up, a wrong code number is entered by mistake, the word "SAFE" will appear in the frequency display first blinking, and then continuous.

You can now repeat the entire cancelling procedure but only once. The number of attempts will be shown in display.

If the wrong code number should be entered again, your radio will be locked up for approximately one hour. The radio will not play. Leave the radio switched on. After an hour, you can cancel the electronic lock-up as previously described.

This cycle, two attemps - one hour lock-up continues again. //

My 1995 vw 2.0 steering belt makes a rubbing noise when i turn

Check the condition of the belt if it looks worn (cracks and wear along the sides of the belt ) replace it . This is also a good time to check your power steering pump for fluid. Make sure its at the correct level and there is no foaming or bubbles in it. If there are bubbles or foaming it must be bled ( good idea to replace fluid at this time)

06 tdi buttons bubbled

Do you live in very hot climate?
If so the heat inside your car can reach extreme high temperatures causing this to happen.
If this is the case then you will understand that only changing your buttons will fix you compliant.
If your not in hot climate then it could be possible that a cleaning chemical could cause this to happen.

2001 VW Jetta with clutch issues

Hi I am Vortash it sounds to me that your Thrust bearing on the clutch actuator arm is damaged , it is probably worn and not pushing evenly or that the cable is rusty and in need of repalcement ( hence the squeaking ? ) the cable may even be stretched ..some jettas in this country also had Hydraulic clutches and this would point to a leak ( damaged rubber seals or slave or master cylinder rubbers leak ) or air bubble , or low fluid level not actuating the thrust arm properly
hope this is of help regards Vortah
