    Calipers mkiv

    2002 golfs. Are you people replacing rear calipers when the parking brake lever doesn’t engage or is there a way to fix this? Also for calipers in general, including fronts, what is a way to know if they need to be replaced other than signs of seal leakage? As for the rears, I just replaced the...

    2002 Trunk latch

    Now that it’s gettin warmer I tried to figure out why my hatch wasn’t opening. Took the cover off to find the plastic piece in step 3 of this article was off altogether. Put it back on and worked fine. Turned the lock to open with the key and it popped off again. Do they sell this little piece...

    2002 golf accessory belt

    I started to hear a bad bearing type noise on startup that would go away shortly seconds after the car was started. If I stopped at a store, you would hear that scrape noise and it would go away after 2 seconds. Yesterday I started the car, went to pull out and had no power steering, battery...

    I’ve had this set for a while. Don’t use it terribly often and remember this had been a problem in the past.

    Black and white check valve to n75

    Can this cause an over boost if it’s bad? I can suck and blow (yeah I know) on both ends of this thing....

    Overboost on long rolling hills.

    This is random, not very re-producible. I replaced the vacuum can and all the soft vacuum lines on my 02 alh last spring. My old can was rotted out for the 2nd time. Just did the n75 output test on both of my 02 alh vehicles. My n75 seems to make a chirp sound the first couple of cycles and then...

    Very random overboost.

    The vacuum can is in good condition and adjusted properly. About two months ago I went into limo mode, and it was from overboost. I believe the vanes are slightly sticky. I started to drive more aggressively and it seems to have gone away for a couple months. Took several 1000 mile round trips...

Don’t think that is the problem. (Cruise worked in the past while the clutch lockout did not) please advise.

    A4 fender rust

    I have (2) 2002 golfs. I’ve cleaned behind those front liners every year. I’ve also had one fender replaced on each car about 7 or so years ago under the vw replacement plan. I now have a fender on each car that is rusting through at the bottom again. Being that these cars are close to 2 decades...
