    FS: 2001 Beetle TDI in Charleston, SC

    SOLD! 2001 VW Beetle TDI I bought the car 6 years ago with a blown differential and it has never broken down on me since. I taught the wife to drive a manual transmission with this. The super torquey Diesel makes driving stick super easy. She learned it so quick and loved it so much, she...

    FS: PD lift pump BRAND NEW - Pierburg model!!!

    BRAND NEW - NEVER USED. Comes with my install kit. This is the superior Pierburg model of the PD lift pumps. It won't run your fuel pump dry if the motor stops like the Valeo most vendors sell. There is no need for any silly mods. I bought this as a gift for my brother last Christmas. He...

    How to make a pop-off engine cover for AHU/1Z....FINALLY!

    I have been trying to post this for months but the TDI photos links were not working. I found a way to make a pop-off engine cover for the 1Z/AHU. Using smaller balls and sockets from some Audi or VW and installing standoffs for electrical panels to raise them to the correct height. I...

    1996 Passat Wagon B4V needs body shop work

    Wagon was in an accident. The battery was pushed back and broke the shift tower. I installed a new shift tower and the car starts and runs on its own power. The left engine rail is bent and this can be fixed on a frame machine at a body shop in less than 4 hours. I recommend buying a...

    VW coolant compatible with copper?

    I am looking to custom form some hose bends. Is the stock coolant compatible with copper? I can't recall any in the TDI engine coolant system or why every car company wants their own special coolant.

    Need purchase advice on A3 with a dead CBEA engine

    What's to say about the list of faults below for a 2010 Audi A3 CBEA engine? It has no oil pressure so engine is dead based on the noise it makes. Why is there no fault light for the lack of oil pressure? Work of swindlers? What would be the benefits of swapping to a CJAA engine? Is...

    Potential engine fire and Relay 109 circuit: Poor VW design

    So all the engine sensors that are powered by the relay 109 are unfused. If you get a short then there is going to be enough amperage to burn away all the insulation on the wire as well as melt relay 109 solder connections, the fuse block, and G1 connector. This can of course lead to fire. So...

    ABS failure: Pump runs ALL THE TIME

    I mean it. The pump runs non stop with the engine off and the key out of the ignition. The last owner of this 2001 Beetle fixed this by pulling the 3rd 30A fuse above the battery. The car gives the same code with the fuse pulled or not. Strange! Address 03: ABS Brakes...
