    Clutch hydraulic line leak at slave

    As was stated.. it's a pain, but it's do-able... BTW - contrary to some of the postings out there, the little clip that holds the line to the master cylinder IS removable on my cars, so... care must be used... (an extra-long set of long-nose pliers is helpful...) PS: the part number for the...

    Clutch hydraulic line leak at slave

    OK... I give up... how does one get at the other end of the Clutch Hose (at the Master Cylinder) ?? I would hope you don't have to unbolt the ABS pump... I've been searching for a guide online, but none of them show you how to gain access...

    Clutch hydraulic line leak at slave

    I'll try to "borrow" a slave and a hydraulic line from my parts car - if I can figure out a way to get at the attachment to the master cylinder... it looks very tight in there...

    Clutch hydraulic line leak at slave

    2003 Jetta... lost the clutch, so I bled the system and noticed that it had been leaking where the line joins the slave cylinder. So I replaced the "O" ring (from the kit numbered 1K0 721 741... (I know it's now been superceded by 1K0 798 741). Still leaks... now these kits come with 2 "O" rings...

    Loose IP Mounting Bolt Need Opinions

    About 10 years ago I put a (used) pump in a used engine and found out I couldn't torque one of the bolts... so I drilled out the hole in the pump and put a regular bolt and 2 nuts from the hardware store down the street... it's still there, and the engine's run over 341700 km with it... (can't...

    2003 Jetta Wagen just passed a million KM... now what?

    Wow... you've done a ton of work... I got a headache reading your linked thread, but will return to it soon... I have a Hex-USB+CAN cable, and somewhere in the world I have an old serial clone cable (probably packed away with a laptop that hasn't worked in years...) I also have some other...

    2003 Jetta Wagen just passed a million KM... now what?

    No... I have VCDS and can read the ECU from time to time... I'd love to get something that will resemble a functioning odometer / cluster... I know that just getting a junkyard cluster won't work due to the immobilizer issue... (I'm sure my friendly local VW dealer would be glad to assist...

    2003 Jetta Wagen just passed a million KM... now what?

    Of course, the odometer went to all dashes... (perhaps that's why it's called a dashboard...) Is there a not-terribly-expensive way to get something working in there? I know there used to be someone in the U.S. that could reset the clusters, but... we're in Canada, and with the border closed...

    What should I be looking for when buying a "fixed" MK6 wagon?

    Are they selling "fixed" Mk6s in Canada? I thought that was only a U.S. thing... Y.

    Clutch - Master or Slave cylinder?

    Follow-up - the leak was not from the "O" ring... it was from the actual hose assembly - where the hard line enters the "plug" that actually fits inside the slave cylinder. That's now fixed (with J.B.Weld) and there are no more leaks. However: after bleeding it the first time, the following...

    Clutch (Slave) Hydraulic line seal(s) - leak

    OK... JB Welded... seems to hold... for now... I'm not sure how long this type of repair will last... hopefully it's quasi-permanent - but the resulting patch doesn't seem to be all that hardy... (I had to re-do it, and had no trouble destroying the original patch with pliers...) Thanks for...

    Clutch (Slave) Hydraulic line seal(s) - leak

    Thanks... I'll give the JB Weld a shot... I'll see how tricky it is to remove the other end of the line from the seemingly inaccessible Master cylinder... Y.
