  1. Golf 7 (type 5G) 2012 - 17
    Hi, new to the forum. I'm looking for advice buying a golf. I found this golf on AT. Great looks, milage, and price seems reasonable. It's CAT N though, and looking up the MOT history it seems like maybe the structural damage has had an effect on how suspension components and tyres wear out? I...

    Good evening everyone I lefty 2008 2.0SDI Golf in to get a new clutch and flywheel fitted, to be told the gearbox is knackered too. The SDI is hard to find 2nd hand parts for, but is there any other models that would have a gearbox that would easily be fitted to the car? Thanks in advance
  3. Golf 7 (type 5G) 2012 - 17
    I've recently had a service on the golf and the mechanics at citygate found an oil leak from the mechatronic. They've suggested that it needs to be replaced. Of course the cost associated with it is north of 2.5k. I've taken it to multiple non official mechanics, none found an error code but...

    I have had Code P2271 (O2/ Lambda Sensor Bank 1 sensor 2 stuck rich; after CAT converter) on my car for a while.

    Hi everyone, First post so not sure if it’s in the correct place. I’ve just purchased a 2013 Golf GTI automatic with DSG gearbox. For some reason the car has been stalling, noticed in a few weeks ago but didn’t think much of it as it wasn’t so often. Now it seems to be a bit more frequent. The...

    Good evening people ! My '05 MK5 looks like it has an issue with the MAP sensor as VCDS tells me. Swapped the MAP sensor with a new 4 Bar Bosch, checked wires , changed the sensor plug. When turning on the ignition and wait for the dash lights to come off then start the car, turbine doesn't...

    Hiya all, I have brought a cheap, high spec'd, 2006 mk5 2.0 GTTDI from a customer. The guy I got it from was driving it down the motor way when the turbo went, there is oil everywhere, all round the engine bay, all up the back of it, its everywhere, apart from in the sump... I'm assuming that...

    Hi everyone, I'm new here and recently bought a 2001 Golf Cabriolet mk 3.5 that could do with a new or second hand o/s front wing. I've looked on ebay and gumtree etc and even contacted A TO Z spares and universal spares and Euro Car Parts to no avail. Does anyone have one for sale or know...

  15. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this as I’m new to the forum but I’m gonna try anyway. I’ve recently gotten my hands on a 2007 Golf GT TDi (BMN 170). The car has had issues with the engine for a few weeks now and I’m baffled as to where to start. So it started when the DPF...

  17. New Members Introduce Yourself Here
    Hello, I’ve just joined this forum to ask for advice. I have a VW Golf 2009 GT TDI, I took it for an MOT to a garage I’ve never used before it failed with the EML on and they then passed it so I imagine they turned it off as the EML, Glow plug and dpf light all came back on when I collected...

    I picked up a 2018 VW Golf GTD at the end of last year in immaculate condition (until last week). Unfortunately, i've managed to dent the roof liner, I think by loading my bike into the boot. Its extremely irritating and noticeable. Is there anything I can do to remove this without causing...

    (Not sure if I’m posting on the correct section) Basically I have a VW Golf tdi 1.9 55 plate, I went on a trip and my engine was making a loud knocking noise but drove it anyway (silly me) and it just got worse jumping and cutting out power at 70mph. Then after all of this we made it home, I...
