DIY Volkswagen repair: common malfunctions

VW cars are characterized by reliability and break down rarely. But, as well as cars of other makes, they have their typical malfunctions. Some of them require assistance of professionals. The others can be removed yourself, with the help of step-by-step video tutorials on Volkswagen repair made by AUTODOC Club.

Engine

A working fluid temperature sensor is the most vulnerable element of the engine cooling system, particularly on Volkswagen Passat cars. When it fails, the engine starts running rough, thus increasing its warming up time and sometimes fuel consumption. You can replace the sensor on your own, using the illustrated PDF Volkswagen repair manual.

A sealing element of the crankcase ventilation valve may get damaged in some models, including Volkswagen Polo. The problem often comes with unstable operation of the cold engine. There can be an oil leakage near the oil filler. The sealing element is located in the engine bay. To replace the part, just unscrew the fastening bolts and detach the hose from the intake manifold. You can easily do this at home. Step-by-step video tutorial on VW repair will help you.

Brake system

The VW cars owners often face improper operation of the vacuum servo. If you hear your vehicle squeaking and crackling or notice it pulling to the left or right when braking, these are the symptoms of the vacuum servo malfunctioning. Moreover, the brake pedal becomes more difficult to engage. Following the manual on Volkswagen repair and operation step by step, you will be able to replace the vacuum servo without assistance. Mind that you may need some special tools for replacement: tap wrench, pliers, socket bits.

Body

The typical malfunction of some Volkswagen models, such as Golf, is the doors freezing to the roof moulding. The reason for this is the moulding design and production material. To solve this problem, stick a special protective layer to the door frame right where it touches the roof and regularly use the car silicone spray. You can find more information in our tips and video guides.

Moreover, the boot lid hinges often rust away, making it hard to lift the lid. Grease the hinges to  remove this defect. If the performed action didn’t help, you should replace these components. To do this work properly, download DIY Volkswagen repair and maintenance manual for free.

Round stains may appear on the misting windscreens of some cars. They can be easily removed by wiping the inner surface with the help of a special glass polish.
