People really have to have some balls to steal a car from a garage... That's sad.. Curious Chris and I have been busy doing some fixing on the 02 Jetta I bought.. So far Brakes rotors all around + starter. We are working on doing the suspension now.. got front left strut replaced, passenger side to go with back shocks and springs!

Gotta admit Chris is pretty knowledgeable when it comes to TDI's!

Hopefully it is the rear bearing. I had a clunk over bumps in my car and it was the trailing arm bushings. VW says they are not replaceable and that is close to true but I replaced mine. I have the insertion tool that worked very nicely. I also have the tool to press the rear bearing in.

Default 2000 Beetle 1C0831411B lower hinge left door

2000 Beetle 1C0831411B lower hinge left door . . . anyone happen to have one they are looking to part ways with quick and easy like?

Broke both bolts off at the door with minimal effort applied . . . likely will drill out, tap, and use different bolts, just thought I'd do a quick check first . . .

Looking for a front bumper cover and grill for a white 2001 Jetta. If anyone knows where to find one, it would be much appreciated. White is not very common.

Also will have left over parts from the 2001 project. Stuff like, head including injectors, race pipe, block but likely bent rod as it hydrolocked, 10mm injection pump, injector lines (the hard ones), turbo (may possibly be a chinese one as no Garrett stamp), and others. Will be posting on Craiglist so will provide a link to the posting.

Car runs great but got p0234 code. So checking for boost leak, N75 and MAF tomorrow. New Garrett turbo so that cannot be it.

2 door Golf interior? I've got an '03 with black dash and bluish grey seats, could use seats, etc. if your's aren't torn.

The front seats are still in use, but the rear ones can be had for free

If you pull them out there's a huge amount more room back there.

and the backs weigh like 60lbs together, enough that you can feel the extra pep
