    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    What actually fails on that piece? My release moves up/down, but the seat back is solid. Does it fail internally like the "end" snaps off?

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    The passenger rear seat back will not fold/move. I haven't dug too much into the reason.

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Drove 1.5 hours to pick up new wheels and tires for my truck. Well, only 3 would fit inside, so #4 went in the roof. Made the trip home just fine! '][/URL]

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    A pair of Skar RPX65's. I'm far from an audiophile, I deferred to a buddy of mine and he said this will be lightyears ahead of what I have now. I'm sure I'll be happy.

    What did you do to your MKIV today?

    Forgive Doug, he can speak in uncertain terms sometimes. He has been looking for that specific hood for about 6 months without any luck. He is saying that now that he HAS one, someone will come along and say they had one the entire time and it will be much closer than the 5 hour 1 way trip.

    Low glow plug voltage

    Alright, so it COULD be glowplug related... However, there are a lot of variables here (GP voltage, software voltage, timing, loss of fuel prime, starter speed, etc). Oilhammer has mentioned what course of action you should take. At minimum, you could pull a GP and post the part number here for...

    Low glow plug voltage

    Alright, does the car start fine in the warmer months after sitting overnight? To some, there are two definitions of a cold start, overnight and overnight when the ambient air is less than 40*f.

    Mk4 Golf/Jetta Custom Mudflap/Fender Covers.

    Another suggestion: the "end" of the rocker before the rear wheel, where the fender arch begins is another rust prone area. Along with where the rear fender arch meets the rear bumper.

    Bilstein HD rear shocks - wagon?

    I put the wagon specific Billstein HD's in my (now sold) 05 Wagon. It rode smooth if you put 200lbs of stuff in the back. Empty, it felt too stiff for my tastes.

    VW blend door plugs - community effort to reproduce?

    The first one I did, I pulled the entire dash panel etc and it sucked. Are you guys pulling just the center stack and sneaking the plugs in through there?

    Revs outta control

    Year/model of vehicle would help. Define "retimed injection pump" please. As noted above, it could be running away, check oil consumption. Or (if it's a rotary pump engine) your "retiming of the injection pump" could have set the IQ way too low and now you are experiencing a runaway type...
