on the ones I did I just unbolt the motors from the calipers,
then use a straight blade screwdriver in the torx hole to retract the internal parking brake mechanism
then squeeze the outer piston in with a pliers or whatever
then bolt the motor back on

there's only two wires going to the parking brake motors, it just applies 12v in one polarity for a set time to apply them, then applies 12v in the opposite polarity for a set time to release. No position sensing to worry about (maybe current sensing to shut off when the motors stall out at the end of their travel)

Default Looking for new rockers

I'm trying to source a new set of rockers for a 2002 Golf locally. Anyone have a recommendation on who might have some in stock?

Eh, mine's pretty hacked up

The pipe itself doesn't usually rot out as it's some sort of ferritic stainless, I feel as though it's a little higher grade than the 409 that american cars get. The hangers however do fall off regularly, and the resonators come apart (did the diesels get those or were they gas only?). Mine had a piece of EMT welded in after the cat, back to the band clamp.

Find an exhaust shop that'll weld in a new flex pipe and hangers.

Ok here is an easy one: i accelerate hard, then when I brake there is a clunk I can feel in the brake pedal so it is coming through the subframe. Does it a lot one day and then just seems to be random. I jacked up the driver's side and there was no obvious clunk but a little movement in the 3:00 o'oclock/9:00 o'clock. LCA? Tie rod? I am betting LCA.

I vote LCA (bushing), but have you looked at your motor mounts?

Dog bone is another possible choice Chris. If you jack it up and use a prybar, you can typically see what is moving. I had a similar issue and it was the dogbone.

Here's the stuff I bought from amazon:

Thanks Kriesel! I will order some and try it out. It is not sagging too bad so far thank goodness.

I have replaced all my motor mounts in the last 3 years. I am betting LCA though I check the driver's side and nothing so when I have time I will check the passenger side.

If I did not already have two Mk4 Golf TDIs, I'd jump on this in a heartbeat. You'd have my deposit tonight.

I bought the car from Bjorn, nicest guy you'll ever meet. Thanks for the easy transaction!
I'm excited to get insurance on it now and start driving.

Default Anyone Know This Car? Minneapolis/ St. Paul area

Hello from Michigan-
Checking here to see if anyone on the forum knows this car:
Just bought from Hudson Ford Used Cars/ Hudson, WI (St. Paul, MN area):
Guessing it was a trade in?
2003 Jetta Wagon TDI- Baltic Green/ Tan Leather 260k
Was originally an auto trans converted to 5 speed.
Records up through 200k, and I know someone after that put lots more time
and money in it, as it has lots of newer stuff: Darkside race pipe/ EGR gut,
newer Bilsteins, tires, brakes, etc. Pretty nice car.
Anyone know the car or the person that recently owned it?
Just want to fill in the maintenance blanks...
Thanks- a PM would be fine.

You need to talk to Eric Merker, who knows about this car I think and told me about it. From what I heard, the lady traded it in without telling her husband, and he was not happy.
