I filled at the Kwik Trip in Big Lake and was a little surprised to not see the Gold Diesel logo at the pump, so I'll assume they didn't have it, either.

Stopped at the Kwik Trip because it looked busy and I didn't see any Fleet Farms or Cenexes nearby (Cenex doesn't sell Gold but their Roadmaster XL is pretty good stuff IME).

Ended up with this car, could part it out if there's interest in manual swap or wagon specific parts.

Otherwise, looking for a scrap-price deal on a set of calipers, radiator, condenser, and a core support, if someone else has got a part out going to the crusher soon. No real need for another car, but it feels somehow wrong to part out a wagon.

I took a look at this 2002 Golf GLS TDI today. It would make a great second car for me, except I already have a second Golf TDI. But it seems to be a pretty good car for $2000 (or best offer).

The interior is in good shape though a bit dirty. The body is okay -- it needs new front fenders but the rocker panels are good. The hatch won't open with the remote or the key, but I think that is easy to fix. It's had a recent timing belt replacement, though I did not see the documentation. The AC turns on but the fan doesn't blow. I didn't take it for a test drive as the registration expired several months ago. The owner says she made many trips to Utah and Montana, so a lot of the miles have been highway miles.

If someone is looking for a cheap TDI and is willing to put in a little TLC, this seems like a good one.

Well no picture but this is not very hard. To get to the Relay 109 you have to remove the kick panel driver's side as that is where the relay panel is you look in and find the 601 relay (yes it is upside down). Now the fuel shut off valve is easier: engine cover off look at the injection pump driver's side and there is a single wire held on with a hmmmm 8 mm nut.

I have spare Relay 109's in my garage as I am parting out my 2002. New in box as I had two Relay 109 failures so I bought a spare and put it in the glove box.

05 I'm fairly sure is PD, so fuel shutoff isn't on the injection pump, as there isn't one.

Sorry I can't be more help than that, never played with PDs
