2 codes set in SRS system. Pass seatbelt tensioner and pass side airbag. light will be on with those codes.

Driver door key is fine. Door always reports closed and locked. Power unlock. I suspect it doesn’t power lock because it thinks it is locked? Unknown.

Right rear wheel bearing decimated. It and abs sensor swapped. Had left rear abs sensor codes set. Abs light was off when it left. Bet it came back on.

All monitors set, hope for successful sticker tomorrow.

Sticker achieved.  They hit me up to fix the fender signals.

Wife reported driver side window disappeared while at work today. Drove home window down lol.  Took door apart and reseated the window.  It literally just sits into two cradles that go up and down. It appears she rolled it down while it was frozen (auto down) and it fell down into the door when it thawed out.

I'm really liking German engineering, door panel was very self explanatory to remove, all electrical connectors easy to separate.

iirc there are some screws below those cradles that tension them on the glass. tightened? otherwise may repeat. apparently a maintenance item on these cars after 20 years. I have to be careful with the driver window in the wagon too. passenger has been good.

I did not notice that.  I'll have to do that next time its warm.  Passenger was separated as well, rolled it up and heard it seat.

Wife reported no turnover at work Thursday evening.  I went over there, battery good, solenoid clicks, no engagement.  It was cold and dark so we abandon it.  Seems like the starter Mike replaced in 2018 is shot already ???

oh it's much worse than that - starter was NEW exchange weeks before delivery. I'd had to flip starters between wagon and golf and finally did the warranty exchange getting it ready to go to you!

it is an easy swap, I did one in a snowy parking lot once, I think maybe the 2018 unit referenced. which is still starting the wagon today.

I think those carquest starters might just be complete trash. failure mode on the factory starters is always corrosion of the solenoid to motor wire. failure on the carquest that I swapped was a bad bushing and it would fall out of engagement. What you're seeing now is new experience... And embarrassing.

Replaced and started.  Old unit engages but no spin.  Weak engagement and doesn't disengage all the way.
