    What is the cost of a used bumper including attachment brackets? Are such bumpers available?
    The right wing of the bumper is bent down approximately 4". The right headlight bracket was damaged (has been replaced but adjustment is difficult). The bumper is bent close to the auto body from the right front of the bumper to the mid point of the bumper.

    My Trunck will not open by the interior unlock or the key fob unlock. Interior has not worked for sometime.
    Mileage: 91,500 The interior unlock has not worked for sometime. The key entry just stopped working. It no longer makes the noise it once did. The gas tank opener on the door works.

      This information indicates the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has issued a notification / bulletin for the VW Passat air bags.

      The next step is to go visit / make an appoitment with the delaership - and provide them this same information.

    How can I tell if its my tail light circuit board or light bulb socket causing the problem? How much would either cost?
    My VW Jetta left tail light is out. The dealer said its not the fuse since the right tail light works. Ive replaced the bulbs and still nothing. They said it might be the circuit board?

      Need more information - does the left side turn signal and brake light work? Is only the tail light out (not working)?

      The left side turn signal and brake light work. The left tail light is out. That is the only problem.

      If there is no power on one side and the other side works then yes the circuit board is possible. 2011 vehicle out of warranty already? Do not have recent enough info to look at a wiring diagram for 2011 to assist further. Nobody is just gonna know which one, it has to be diagnosed by a person with a 12 volt testlight.

    Where can I look for restrictions to the defroster air flow ?
    I replaced the cabin air filter and there has been improvement, but the flow to the driver's side of the windshield is still much too low.

    Washer pump will not turn on.
    replaced with new pump. Verified pump OK when connected direct to battery.

      If the new pump works OK direct to battery, then check these items as next steps; fuse, wiring / connection at the pump, ground connection. Please post a reply with these test results for further assistance.

    How do I change a tail light?
    The only one that is out is the one that comes on when I turn on the lights. The marker lights, turn signal lights and break lights all work.

    How much should it cost to repair my scratched bumper?

      The body shop repairs will vary by the individual shop even in the same location / area. Best bet is to have one or more auto body repair shops in your area provide an estimate after a thorough (and hands-on) inspection of the work needed. There is no accurate method to determine auto body repairs via the internet - for obvious reasons.

      To find a shop, you can try the 'Find-A-Shop' feature on the AutoMD website.
