    Swapped out. Problem solved.

    I think I totalled my 2000 TDI NB

    Oh oh...Sorry to hear that. Compression test on these is that easy: Except you use the glow plug bores. I have one of these $30 Hazard Fraught jobs and it threads right up & works fine. Be sure to blast the glow plug holes out with brake cleaner first, then try to get any grit out before you...

    OK- try this one - maybe mo betta. Dogbone feels tight. Right side mount feels a lot tighter but quite a bit more difficult to get my camera on it

    Floppy transmission mount?

    2003 Jetta TDI ALH - 5spd https://youtu.be/usCjobTEgTc (New video) about 11 seconds. Does this seem like excessive play at the pendulum mount? Symptoms: Shudder with clutch engagement when leaving a stop - (either 1st or reverse). This presents with a clunking sound as the dogbone vibrates...

    2001 5 speed reverse struggle

    I've seen some replacement CV bolts that are a bit too long (or the inner flange maybe not deep enough for the bolts)- so long they look like they could easily interfere with the casting webbing near the output flanges...Easy enough to take a look - you'll know if you see nicks on the casting...

    Clanky calipers

    Yes, light pressure does quiet them, but it's not the pads: The caliper slides on the knuckle, and it's the caliper rattling against the knuckle that's making the clanky noise - evidenced by visible play and audible clank. Looking at the Bentley, (Page 46-3)...Looks to me like the bushings (not...

    Clanky calipers

    I know guys: This is the weirdest thing- I've never seen it (and like I said, I've done several sets of brakes on MKIVs)...With car in the air, tapping bottom of tire with a heavy mallet to reproduce the noise, a buddy and I started with suspension/steering components. After eliminating...
