wonder if it’s worth the trouble to swap the K member on a 20 ur old car with 255k miles ?
and I’m not sure the rear mount on the unibody subframe where the K member bolts up isn’t damaged

The bolt looked like it was at an angle
I removed it and it wasn’t bent
so either the frame rail mount is moved , which doesn’t look like it , cause that would usually knock off the undercoating .
hard to imagine the mount in the frame getting pushed back without the lower control arm bending...

I think the official Volkswagen repair manual starts with "begin by removing both front fenders"
I don’t buy any stuff like starters or alternators or water pumps from auto zone or some other store
They are all made in China garbage
I get those type of parts from the dealer or have the starters and Alts rebuilt at a local shop
We’ve not had too much problem with the 2000 beetle
Does the warranty go with the car or just the first person who buys it from the stealership after the fix ?
Is it like a bumper to bumper or just for the emission components ?
