In case anyone is confused, a DCT (or "dual clutch transmission") is NOT a manual transmission. It is an automatic transmission with discrete gear ratios (meaning, NOT a CVT) that happens to use two clutches. One clutch is for the odd-numbered gears, and the other one is for the even-numbered gears. This lets it run through a large number of gear ratios very quickly, thus keeping the engine speed very close to the optimal zone at all times. It used to be only used in high-end cars, but is getting more popular in medium-priced vehicles.Damn, I thought dual clutch transmissions were only for fast sports cars.
I don't have a full picture, but for the rear door there's only one screw: inside the interior door handle.Any chance you can post a photo of the door with the panel off that shows the whole door so we can see where all the screw holes and mounts are?
Don't quote me on this, but I think it does. I think there are a few screws and maybe some clips holding it on.On the front side, does the elbow rest area detach from the main part of the door card? If it does, I have a person I know that does reupholstery work that can make it padded.
i wish they made the rear top spoiler , india venue have them but not in the USA.Been lurking and posting a bit since I bought my Venue in February, and decided to share some of the mods I've done so far. I'll apologize in advance for being a bit short on pictures, but I have a bad habit of neglecting to document my work in process, because I'm usually just focused on getting the job done. That being said, I am more than happy to take additional pics if possible, or answer any questions.
First, here's where I'm coming from: I was big into VW since I was in high school. I had an 87 GTI, and then bought a new 2001 Golf 1.8 Turbo when I graduated from college. I drove it for 20 years (only ~150k miles) before I purchased the Venue.
This past winter, my wife was looking for a new car, which meant I was looking with her. Even though my 01 Golf was mechanically sound (literally everything worked), I knew it wouldn't last forever and I was concerned about being able to find a car with a manual transmission when I eventually did need one. I had already decided that another VW could be a possibility, but after their emissions cheating scandal I wouldn't be married to the brand anymore. When a 2020 Venue with ~9k miles on it showed up, I bought it.
More to come....
