A much needed few days off
I just wanted to let you all know that I am taking a few days off. Well, to tell ya the truth, I will be working. 🙂
I am taking a few days off from the blog. I am changing a few processes so it will take some time to iron that out.
In the mean time, you can still connect with me on Facebook, twitter, isntagram or email. If you need a post fix, pick one of the tags on the right. Or go to the archives.
I hope everyone has a great 4th.
Or a great 1st for the Canadian readers 🙂
Good call brother!!!
Happy 4th of July everyone!
Last week I did my first 4 days of internship at a local VW dealership – 10 more days to go! I am loving it 🙂 Just thought I’d let ya know 😉
That is awesome. I am really happy for you. What type of stuff are you doing at the dealer?
The first day I just watched, the guy didn’t let me touch anything but since then he’s been trusting me more and more so I am doing more and more actual work 😉
I am very lucky they matched me up with one of their best techs with 20 years of VW experience so he doesn’t really do oil changes 😉
So far I changed the liquid of 2-3 DSGs, swapped a few A/C compressors, changed both electric mirrors on an mk5, helped the tech replace synchros on an mk4 transmission, spent a few hours diagnosing an intermittent NO-Start issue (turned out one of the tranny module connectors was disconnected in the firewall), changed an O2 sensor on a ’11 Touareg (recall?), a few recalls on MK6 engines… I actually prepared a new Passat for delivery 🙂 and I am forgetting a lot of other things, I am really enjoying this experience!
HELL YES! Man that sounds like a pretty awesome start….
