    What ramps do you guys use for your MKVI?

    I also like bmwm5's ramps. I read the reviews for those rhino ramps and there are just waaaaay too many failures of those things. And there is at least one post on this thread for them too. Nah man, I'm going to home depot and getting me some wood. Thanks all!

    just curious about clutch safety switch?

    Shouldn't be a problem There is at least one other thread on this (probably dozens), but a very reputable member Oilhammer chimed in on and said that is isn't a problem, it's just a dummy switch so you don't accidentally start it in gear. He went on to say that it's actually better to start...

    Kansas Chat Thread

    Hello friends :) Anyone want to let me borrow their factory locking lug key for a day or two? A shop in Wichita accidentally pocketed mine and I want my new tires installed asap. Will let you hold my cell or cc as collateral.

    2005 BEW PD lift pump operation and internals

    Another successful pump change thanks to you guys for the advice and help and TDIWagonGuy for the cheapest pumps available ($300 from local parts stores!). Mine died after I changed the fuel filter, I saw one other post with a similar story, so I thought i'd add my experience. Buttoned...

    Parking brake cable upgrade

    Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you. You guys are so freaking awesome. I was so paranoid about the new parts and doing my cables for the first time but this made it so painless. I am definitely ordering the license plate frame and tdi stickers to support the club a little and when...

    Parking brake cable supersede

    Thanks for the reply Power Hound. I bought all the crap that 1stvwparts sold me. I am really glad they called me to let me know about the new accessory parts but they sold me a clip that holds the metal tubes to the frame, obviously not needed. All in all, I only spent just over a hundred with...

    2003 TDI Oil Filter wrench - Pepboys $10 76mm x 14 flutes

    lol, ya, this thread migrated a little bit, think I may have slightly hijacked. I bought the Metalnerd wrench for the A4 from idparts and it fits...but a little too loose for my taste. Only $6 more and it supports the club. Just looked it up and because it is 74 through 76mm, it fits more...

    Clutch life?

    Same same. Asked my guru on pre-purchase inspection and he said they can go 300k easy if you aren't riding it all the time. Mine was a company vehicle and I was concerned, but soon allayed.

    2003 TDI Oil Filter wrench - Pepboys $10 76mm x 14 flutes

    Thanks for the insight. I read an article/research done by Blackstone Labs on magnetic drain plugs. Findings show they work, but just slightly better than not having one. Look for that Blackstone article Hell ya, good to know it's been going without needing to pull it. Have you ever done a...

    Help with rear brake bolt part numbers.

    Glad this came up, I have been looking to do some maint work and I like to follow mfg recommendation on replacing the bolts when specified (except the battery tray hold down bolt, that is just ludicrous). I went as far as to read the proceedures in the Bentley, but I didn't find part numbers for...
