    The "What did you do to your B4 today" thread...

    The "What did you do to your B4 today" thread...

    Repaired locking, replaced driver's door handle with one of the three extra I've collected over the years. Reinstalled rear leather seats after cleaning... BUT ran into a stupid, self-inflicted problem. Currently licking my wounds from the embarrassment of #2 and reinstalling insulation foam &...

    Well some ******* messed up my rear lock trying to break in. I was able to make the mechanism work with central locking, but these cores have been discontinued

    Doing some quick cleanup of interior, soldering rear door wires, installing 3-way coolant hose, trunk lock, reinstalling floor insulation and carpet, checking over mechanicals and sorting all extra parts... because I just sold the wagon. Oh and I was just reminded that every time you drive one...

    The "What did you do to your B4 today" thread...

    Well I decided to pick up a B4V parts car. PO got rear ended & pulled the engine/trans and proceeded to leave it in the barn... For years. Like @Starion_slider I needed a potential floor donor. This one was it. He'd had all carpet, insulation out & finished with dynamat + foam. I pulled most...

    Gone: parting B4 Passat wagon (engine gone) - Gig Harbor WA

    Rear end hit crumpled behind doors - I'm just digging in to see how bad it is. Whatcha need? I grabbed this wreck to pull floor pan and a few other items I live in Seattle so can meet either location, shipping at expense. Pic of vehicle

    The "What did you do to your B4 today" thread...

    Yeah, when I decided to clean mine thoroughly I found enough floor rust (thanks sound insulation and crappy drains) I'm going to put a new pan in on the driver's side. I was preparing to sell it a few years ago but stored after I found that. I just pulled it out from under the car cover at the...

    Poor PaTuDi

    Ugh, sorry to hear it has been a saga - I had similar issues with my Merc R320 and dragged it to the body shop that Mercedes of Seattle uses. They subsequently too it over to the Mercedes dealer and got an extremely long list of things that were "just not quite right" the insurance would have to...

    Worst practical joke ever... I'd park it there next Sunday to see if they 1) put it back or 2) take the front one

    2002 Jetta Wagon 5speed

    Yes, but to the average person anything over 150k is high, and despite the fact that we know better prices generally don't reflect that these engines can go forever compared to many out there...
