  1. ticking/clicking noise

    this noise appeared then went just as quickly but battery flattened when it was there what is there in engine bay area that will run when ignition is turned off car locked and keys out?any ideas
  2. my car battery has gone flat twice in as many weeks,battery is fine,on last occasion i could hear what appeared to be the fuel pump or something in that area running,more of a ticking noise really ,this was with engine and ignition off.the car had been left over night so it wasnt just something running down or cooling.anyone any ideas ie is there a cut off relay somewhere etc
  3. i am having nothing but bad luck with windows on 97 passat.changed n/s regulator panel working perfect now o/s has stopped working (failed to raise on rainy day dont ask)anyway i managed to wind window up by turning the armature on the motor so this seems to say that mechanism is all attatched and i know there is power to motor,so was wondering if anyone had ever rebruhed the motor as this may be all that is wrong.

  5. 97 passat electric window probs

    my passat electric windows on front and rear passenger side have stopped working,thought it was tied in to water ingress probs(dont get me started there).anyway it seems not as when you press the switches you can hear the motor/relay clicking in the door i have had panel off but motor is non removeable as it is screwed on from behind the inner panel which is riveted on.has anyone else had this fault if so any solutions and if not be aware that the motor is a non serviceable item from what i can see, seems a bit extreme to change a door just coz window wont open but there you go.hope someone can help a little
