Bought the car with seized engine, I am not taking a chance on the block and lower end, have another ALH to swap in.


Story is guy was merging on highway and it just stopped, I think the turbo had been shot for awhile, there is oil everywhere.

Hopefully, they didnít take my VAGCOM cable in the glove box. They broke the handle and I canít open it. Ugh

If the handle is still there, push it back in like it used to be and actuate it and it'll open. Or push in and unlock the lock, then open.

I was able to open it! My VAGCOM cable was still there! phew. Now, fix the wiring they messed up and save up for a worthwhile radio. Thanks guys!

I installed the E-code headlights, European switch and ECS fog light wiring harness following their instructions exactly. I’m plugged into pin 8 on the Euro switch and plug 2 at the lights. First test, the headlights work, turn signals work but for some reason I can’t get the fog lights nor city lights to work. I’m stumped.

See if this helps, especially the last post.

The boy and I put a new n90 solenoid in his 09a. Reverse now works when it's cold. Tested it this morning.


Pretty sure the really black fluid was original, since I had to break the security plug deal. And after 232K it was ~1 qt low on it's "lifetime" fluid. And stinky... oh my.:)

Does that fender liner fit the 2004 Jetta Wagon? If so, what is the part number?

Fronts are the same Sedan vs. Wagon. I've seen that one at IDParts
Vented Fender Liner

I modified the tweezers of a Leatherman Micra tool, to work as a wire-pin connector removal tool, and swapped wire locations on the Euro Switch, to resolve my fog light issue. Unsuccessfully, swapping pins didn’t fix the problem. About to give up, I decided to just check the bulbs... turns out the lights had all bulbs included and installed EXCEPT for the fog light bulbs. Quick run to the autozone for some H3 bulbs... we have fog lights! Pin 8 works for first pull on the Euro switch.

Next piece of the puzzle: How do I get the city lights to illuminate? Run power from the side marker lights?

Nice ride! What suspension parts do you have installed? I want to lower my car too eventually

My city lights illuminate when the Euro switch is turned to the first position and also stay on when the switch is turned to the second (headlight) position. Check to make sure the bulbs are seated firmly; if they are LED bulbs, make sure the polarity is correct as you have a 50/50 chance the bulb was installed the wrong way.


Edit. Pin 5 labeled "58D" is the Parking (US)/City (Eur) light connection IIRC.

Got around to the five brake light mod on the golf, and added some dynamat-style sound deadening to the hatch. Noticed that the high mount brake light seems aimed low, as there seems to be a sharp cutoff just below the height of the brake light. I'm going to have to investigate further.

Started on replacing the door lock actuator on the beetle and entered window regulator hell, fractured plastic, unruly cables, and the need for more hands than available. Also the neighbor cat who likes to "supervise" any car work brushed up against all the freshly silicone greased connectors, leaving them felted with cat fur, so the animals and myself took the afternoon off. Cat managed to stay clean somehow.
