    '96 B4 Sedan in Arizona Junkyard, anyone need parts?

    We moved to Prescott Arizona area last march and I finally went to the local U-Pick It a month ago. There was only one white '96 B4 GLX and it was pretty much stripped, but I did manage to get a few pieces off it like the rear ABS sensors and shield mounts. Yesterday there was a red '96 B4 TDI...

    SOLD! Three 02A transmission 5th gear sets for sale.

    These are all sold now, thank you! I have three CTN 02A (AHU/1Z) transmission 5th gear sets I pulled from wrecked transmissions. Two were due to broken cases and one transmission grenaded when the cross shaft came out, but 5th gear was unaffected. All three are in good shape but one has a tiny...

    Updated! TONS of people looking for B4 parts, Revkev is parting one out!

    I went over to see revkev last night to drop off a cluster so he could diagnose a flashing coolant light on the B4 he is keeping. The other one, his 1996 daily driver for many years, has too many issues and is leaving next weekend to the crusher. I only just learned about it last night. The...

    1997 B4 Sedan for sale, lots of upgrades

    Yes, I am selling my B4 Sedan. It's a 1997 with 453,704 miles on it. Now before you say that's high miles, this has been very well taken care of, with regular proper oil changes using the correct oil and larger filter. All the fluids are correct and all parts replaced were done so with good...

    B4 suddenly running rough, weird injector balance

    So W386 borrowed by B4 and drove 3 hours to pick something up for me, then drove home. He never shut the car off. It's now very lumpy and runs rough. It starts mostly ok when I started it yo grab this screenshot. It ran the same when warm with the same group 13. The IQ was lower (it's cold in...

    06 BRM help needed: no power, rough running, engine sounds.

    I was asked by a friend to look at a 2006 BRM Jetta TDI. I am very familiar with the 1Z/AHU platform but not with this one so I am here asking for some help. The car has 239K on it and has a standard transmission. It is in nice shape with no rust on it. The previous history is unknown and...

    Thoughts making a TDI Travel Emergency Contact List?

    I have toyed with this idea for awhile and am going to get the ball rolling on it. The resurgence is due to helping someone out last night on a Facebook group who was traveling home to New York and broke down in North Carolina. I was able to help him out some but without a Vag-Com locally it...

    Urgent help needed in Charlotte, NC...traveling and no throttle response

    It is not me, I am just putting out the request. There is someone on Facebook I've been conversing with to try and get him up and going. He is off a rest area on I-77 around Charlotte and he lost the throttle response on his '97 B4. I've been on the phone with him for the last hour but he...

    PEI people: headed your way again, need anything?

    We're making the annual trip to PEI for vacation from July 6-12, anyone need anything brought up from the states? Sorry, but the alcohol quota is always filled by relatives up there. :p Pretty much everything is cheaper in the states, so contact me via PM if you want me to bring anything up...

    Yeah, another hybrid turbo question

    So a few years ago I posted about whether to get a stock turbo for the sedan or a K03/04 hybrid. I did yet another search but did not come up with anything definitive that would sway me one way or the other. Here is the background: My sedan has 441,200 miles on the original turbo, which...

    OT: Looking to move, maybe to NC. Seeking input.

    So the wife and I are getting out of Maine in a few years and have short-listed our options to either the Florida Keys, North Carolina, or Utah. We just got back from a few weeks in the Keys and while nice, it's different from what I'm accustomed, to the point I think the differences would be...

    Taking a trip to Florida, need anything?

    So I thought I'd put this out there to all the B4 folks, which is why I'm posting it to this forum instead of the Road Trips forum. My wife and I are headed to the Florida Keys on March 12 and spending a night in Glen Burnie, MD, then Jacksonville, FL, before ending up in paradise. I have...

    Headed to PEI, need anything?

    We're headed back to PEI to visit our relatives there and will be making the trip in early February. Does anyone need anything? I know how prohibitively expensive everything is up there so I put my offer out when we're making the trip. So long as nothing is illegal there or we won't be hit...

    Need IP help: won't take fuel by vacuum or pressure!

    I only know a little bit about the B4 cars but today I will admit I'm stumped. The IP I swapped onto my B4 won't accept all. Not by vacuum or pressure. I have never seen this before and don't know what could cause it. I drove my B4 sedan to work today since work has a heated...

    Anyone in the Florida Keys? My wife and I are vacationing there in a few months and were wondering if anyone from the club was located there.
