Either remove the feed hose, or lube it up( the outside) before trying to seat the pedal assy in its home. Also; is no need to fight the MC loose from the pedal whilst it is in the car. Get it all out and work where there is some room.

Finished my wife's NB transmission fluid today. I started it on Thursday 2 days ago, but ran out of time.

So, I found that adding fluid to an 01m takes a little less than 3.5 quarts. I had added about 3.3 quarts without letting it drip for a great deal of time. When I brought it to temperature and drained the excess, I only got a few ounces back. The car wasn't perfectly level, with the right rear being a little high. The end result is that I am probably a couple of ounces more than perfect, but that is good enough for me. I think a couple of ounces over is better than ounces under for this transaxle.

So it is 3.5 quarts that I will use as the quantity to change the filter and fluid in her 01m, or any other 01m I run into that I am servicing.

Cheers,

PH

Today, I picked up some miscellaneous parts from the salvage yard... a couple fuel line fittings (in the engine bay, next to the coolant bottle), a light socket, and the passenger side HVAC vent. One of my fuel fittings was sucking in air bubbles. I got 2, just in case. My front right marker light has corroded contacts, so I found a nice clean light socket. And last but not least, I found a HVAC vent that's perfectly intact. Mine has some loose fins in the vent.

all done but the alignment. Spent the day with my son, re-hab-ing his suspension( 00 Jetta ). New LCA bushings( TT and OE rubber), new struts( Koni's STR-T) to match the back, done with a complete IDP kit and track density uppers. Also got ball joints, and tie rod ends. Not too much drama...LOL

The 19.99 HF joint spreader tool was well worth the $$, clamp it on, and turn the jack screw and the joints came apart with no complaints.
cheers,
Douglas

My son and I picked up trim lumber to frame out some windows at my other son's house (while he is on vacation, haven't quite figured that out). Dug out the Thule crossbars for the wagon.

I don't need no stinking pickup truck!

IBW, your wagon always looks so prestine. I hope mine still looks as clean with your mileage.

Put on a new caliper left rear. Old one wouldn't auto adjust anymore, got tired of the sinking pedal from it. By the way, totally pinched that line to do it. Cause I saw a thread about it recently

Thanks. I've found the keys to keeping it looking good are (a) a good detailer; and (b) it's rarely outside unless it's moving. My detailer does such a good job waxing the car it's super easy to wash and looks great after, and I think the paint (and lots of other parts) have lasted so well because this car has been inside a lot of its life.

Went to the ‘yard and found some driver’s side lower dash plastic panels for under the steering wheel, to replace my rattling broken-clip panels. I’m thinking about reinforcing the clips and mounting holes with JB Weld before installing.

Also, found a New Beetle dressed in Double Yellow. I was tempted to buy these seats, but not sure how they would look in my wagon:



Any thoughts???

I have a set of those, but with red inserts. The passenger seat is installed, but Iíve been waiting to refurbish the driver seat before installing ... itís going on 3 years.

Not sure I could do that yellow, but the square bolster is very nice. Grab them and recolor the center sections. Thereís some DIYís about refreshing the color, just refresh it to a darker color.

Step away from the beetle and keep your hands where we can see them.

You have a blue wagon. Too many colors going on. MAYBE if the wagon was black and the rest of the interior is black leather. Look into dyeing the inserts to match your paint color.

haha! Yeah, you're right, it's too much. I like the black cloth seats currently in my wagon.
I'll leave the Double Yellow untouched and complete for a Beetle owner. It would look good in a black Beetle.

Cool

Changed oil with Mobile one @ 380k.
Drove to work about 75miles one way. Broke a drivers axle stranded about an 1hr away from home. Had to sit on the side of the I-70 for about 5 hrs from 4:30am to 9:30am to wait until AAA could find some one.
With that being said. Had to order some parts thru IDparts needed a set of front Bilstein HD fronts and TT control arm bushing and stock front one ,ball joints, tie rod ends both inner and outer , sway bar bushings, drivers side axle. Also thinking of add my metal subframes bushings in since it will go to the alignment shop after this. Now waiting on UPS to show up. I think that’s the hards thing. Not a fan of waiting
