How VW Parts Fail ~ 2.0t Ignition Coil Connectors

Ignition Coil Failure

Ignition Coil Failure

Today I am back to talk about more failing VW parts. We are looking at one of the most broken connectors I see, ignition coil connectors. More spesifically 2.0t ignition coil connectors. It may seem like a very simple failure, but connectors have a lot more going on than you may think. This was a really fun “How VW Parts Fail” video for me. I have repinned a ton of connectors in my career, and it is something I enjoy doing.

    Charles, just re-watched your video on the ignition coil connectors.
    My question is will any harm be done if I remove the plastic engine cover. Reason being the coils and harness will stay cooler, and perhaps last longer.

    Appreciate information on disconnecting “D” connectors.

    Need your advice on disconnecting round connectors, such as one on air box of my 2016 A3 2.0t

    Thank you.
