    Timing belt w/HPFP replacement

    Having my HPFP and associated parts replaced at an independent vw shop in Bellingham, wa. Would it be dumb not to also replace the timing belt while they're in there, even if it's not due for 50k more miles?

    Wires hanging below car

    So... I did some dirt-roading in my non-lifted JSW, and I straddled a rock or something and it peeled back a piece of heat reflector(very little), and grabbed 2 wires and pulled them down under the car to where now they're hanging like a loop waiting to catch something and get ripped out...

    Mystery noise!

    I'm having a strange noise in my 6spd JSW- in first and second gear, when I lift off the throttle but am still in gear, there's a pretty lame sounding grumbling noise. Goes away as soon as I touch the throttle or the clutch. Car runs and drives fine otherwise. Any ideas?

    Cabin air temp sensor location

They're relatively cheap so I want to try replacing it to see if it helps my a/c before I go with the much more likely compressor replacement. Side question- are all the a/c compressors the same across the mk6...

    Sno-seal on rubber trim?

    This may be a dumb question, but does anyone know if you can use Sno seal on pieces of trim on your car? I'm only asking because I have Sno seal right here and I don't have any fancy rubber care products. I have a MK6 JSW and the rubber around the inside of the enormous sunroof needs some attention.
