    02J Final Drive Shimming?

    A long time ago I used to rebuild these but that was when I had all the necessary tools at my disposal and parts were free ( remember the 100K VW powertrain warranty? mostly 020's but many 02A's too ). Well, this isn't something I do as work anymore and I have a customer who's output flange on...

    .ZIP File / Gallery Upload

    Just lost my host that I was using for hosting several things one of which is the log plotting application that works in tandem with VAG-COM / VCDS.

    Anyone replaced inserts in Bosch Icons?

    Anyone replace inserts in Bosch Icons? Just curious, I have a set that's getting old and obviously want to just replace the inserts because anything else would be costly and wasteful. I haven't even bothered to take them off and check but are they easily dissasembled and compatible with Bosch...

    Manual Transmissions Unsafe in the USA?

    Having been rear ended three times ( two TDI's totaled ) in the last couple years I've put a lot of thought into the following theory... Everyone around me drives an automatic and is thus dumb ( not the TDI automatic drivers of course ;) ). Due to this overwhelming fleet of slushboxes; brake...

    Hey, I came across a really special 2006 Golf TDI for sale locally to me. It's a little too nice for me and I need something a little bigger to replace my recently departed B4V but I'm sure someone here will find this the right car for them. I stopped and talked to this gentleman last...

    The End of The Road For a Special B4V

    All, Well, this AM on my commute some clueless driver rear ended at high spped my mint B4V while I was stopped spinning me into the weeds and taking the car's life in the process. The drivetrain is fine and that'll live on I'm sure but the shell is done. It had a good life, dieseldorf...
