Worked my way up from there...
The Previous owners were obviously Surfers/Beach goers... the amount of sand in the car is unbelievable...
Its everywhere... and its incredibly difficult to extract from the carpet/trim.
I pulled the CarGo overmat... which was full of sand...
This is it AFTER I vacuumed it 3 times!



I ended up PRESSURE WASHING it!
You should have seen how much sand came out!

Lookin better!



The interior was not easy...
I went over it 3x with our house and then my Garage wet/Dry vac... still full of sand...



Then I went over it AGAIN with our Bissel Extraction Carpet cleaner...
This was the 3rd pass over the rear seat back, and it was still pulling brown dirt out!

Yikes, that spare tire well looked nasty! So much better cleaned up. That round rubber piece goes around the oil fill, right under the cap.

That motor oil will work just fine, but it isn't a 507 rated oil like VW specifies. Mobil1 tdt is 1% sulfated ash, and 507 has a .8% limit. It's also a bit thicker. Personally, I'd use it, but thought you might want to know. Nice parts stash!

Thanks, I was aware.
I have that oil on hand as I use it in our ML320 Bluetec.

My only concern about using that oil is:
If I use it, is there any way it impacts the Emissions/HPFP or any other extended warrantee at 120k plus???

That's the crux of it. Extremely unlikely it would become an issue, but if you can use the TDT in your Mercedes, that would be the easiest solution. You could pick up 5 liters of a 507 oil, and not have to worry about it

Or make the emissions problem go away...

You may want to look at the Chevron Delo 400 full synth, it is a CK-4 rated oil which absolutely is dpf-friendly and fully diesel rated. I don't know if it has VW's magic numbers, but if the ash is the only issue with Mobil 1 TDT or the Delvac ESP options... At least you know and can look up the specs.

There's no way I would put a 30 weight (what VW suggests) into my engine for 10k miles... Just asking for wear issues, especially in Florida heat.

The 507 spec is actually a very good diesel rating for light diesels like our cr tdi's. It's near the thick end of the 30 weight range. Many 507 oils like Mobil1 5w30 ESP also carry Mercedes and other diesel ratings. 507 is what most owners use, and I really haven't heard of any worn out CR tdi's yet.

I changed the fuel filter last night and I’m changing the DSG fluid today. I don’t see any brake fluid in the picture.
I got that same cabin filter at Advance Auto for $6.74 after the 25% coupon they had on their website.

I didn't add up your Amazon prices, but IDparts.com has filter packs where everything you need is packaged. Easy to get exactly what you need.

I'm curious what this wagon cost in this condition. Great project to bring it back, but certainly a lot of time going into TLC going into this one. Threads like this one with lots of before and after pictures are great.

I just read the entire thread and see that the oil discussion already came up. Using a CK4 rated 5w30/5w40 oil won't hurt anything(other than the warranty), nor will a 507 rated oil. The timing belt interval is actually 130k miles, so you don't have to feel pressured to do that immediately. All of my old timing belt components looked/performed like new when I did mine.

I'm glad to hear that there is some leeway in the timing belt interval - My JSW has 166k on it right now, and I do not know (yet) whether it got the service or not. Mine had been a company car and other than the mileage, was in damn near mint condition when I bought it... For $6k. It was dealer maintained and the Carfax records show the same dealer doing service right at every 10k and every 6-8 weeks for just about the entire history.

I've since put about $2000 into it for upgrades and maintenance - but I still feel like I am ahead of the curve for what the same car was selling for in Florida. But I don't have a record of the timing belt. Bleh. Once I get the title, I plan to see if I can get a dealer to cough up the actual service history to see what was actually done beyond what the carfax basic info says.

Oh, looks like I screwed up slightly... I could have sworn Timing belt was 120k!

That works, as I have a 1k round trip to AZ this month, and we have rain forecast on and off til then!

I will do Oil, and filters, tho as well as trans service before I go.
As stated, I have the M1 TBT oil on hand, and being in CA, I would prefer that 40w rating for the summers here, as well as our regular runs to AZ.

One run to AZ, it was 125F, across the Mojave, and we were running 5 up, with about 1100lb in people, and full luggage for a wedding in Sedona, in our ML320 Bluetec, at 80+mph. It never missed a beat, ran tirelessly, with the AC blowing ice cold, and did 25 mpg average. I can only imagine what the engine compartment temps were!
That's when u need that safety margin with a good oil!

This is it.
It came to us from FL, and it too, came with work needed.




One of my favorite moments from that trip, was that 3 of my passengers flew in from the UK the night before, and were jetlagged and sleeping in the back. My sister, woke up and commented that she was a little cold, and could I adjust the temp up a little, as her legs were icy... I told her to feel the window, and she was shocked and a little disoriented by the fact it was so hot. I popped her window down a inch and the 125f air came in, and swirled around, causing her to catch her breath, and look at me wide eyed!

Last trip out there in the ML, we almost cracked 30mpg.
Can't wait to see what the VW will do!

On the subject of these cars prices...
I have been looking for a while...
Here in CA, a 2011 and up Sportwagon with TDI have been pretty consistently $7500 up, topping out around the $13k for newer cars with lower miles.
That would be for a Smogged, Tagged, Serviced car.

This one was not....
No Smog, or tags, back taxes outstanding, spotty service history, kinda dirty/scruffy, and will need the rear bumper repainting, and some maybe PDR work.
Also, they knew the service was due.
Took the risk, and we will be about half that, so i'm comfortable, but there is always a worry that something will pop up and bust the budget!
I actually would have preferred a stickshift car, as I believe I would have been able to flat tow it behind my Motorhome.

This is my Baby...

125, wow! I don't think I've ever experienced that outside of a greenhouse or sauna. That's a beaut of an RV(Mercedes looks nice too). What's the powerplant? Big ol' Mopar 440?
