    You can re-pin either the car harness side of the pump side (not recommended since most wires to the QA are the same color--black) with the correct connector shell.

    But in order to get the ALH...

    The center CV joint itself frequently binds up and causes vibration. The bearing itself can also fail and create extra resistance.

    The intermittent no comm to 44 is the big red flashing light that keeps getting my attention.

    For what it's worth, the steering rack is on the powertrain data bus. That's where it gets its...

    Strangely on V10s, the throttle body code can cause the flashing GP light along with the CEL. Like most of these units, they can wear gears or a bushing for an arm internally that causes a...

    Such a load of bollocks.

    "More people drove diesel cars, therefore more CO2 output."

    Sure, burning any fuel makes CO2. But the main reason diesels are popular in Europe is because they're extra...

    Uwe's suggestion on measuring mV drop across fuses is absolutely the best and fastest way to track down what system a draw is coming from.

    The reason you're not seeing fuses for only the mirror adjustment is because they aren't directly fused. On power window mk4s, everything passes through the door control module. The door control...

    Depends on what's failed. I've fixed a few that did need a new microswitch for the latch open/close recognition because the plunger flat gets worn by the rotary piece.
