I have both the cup holder center console, and large glove box in my 00 Jetta. Just have to remove the "accordion" and the bracket as shown in the post I linked.
Link to the parts kit? Hopefully not sold by Prothe. Use a Mityvac. Pull fuel through the return line on the pump. Once you've gotten most of the bubbles out, crack an injector line and crank until fuel sprays out of it. Do it to the next 3 injectors. Should fire up right away after that.
The gear ratios in the 02M will be for a gasser. They won't really play well with a diesel engine. But yes, you'd need a 6 speed clutch, and axles. I think you also need a 6 speed starter, possibly shift linkage and cables, and trans mount bracket. Not worth it IMO. Go with a slightly longer 5th...
What Toxic said. Rebuilds are done way way too cheap nowadays. I warrantied 5 starters in 8 months. The ring around the starter gear kept breaking, and then the whole starter case would break. Ended up eating my flywheel and I had to replace it. I swapped in a new starter from Rockauto and all...
I had taken apart my passenger door panel, and it started doing what's happening to you. I found the the cable for the door handle was engaged in the handle, but the outer sheath of the cable had popped out of it's clip. Popping it back in to the clip fixed the issue.
There's a little disk that sits in the VSS before you put the connector on top of it. Check to see if that's still there. Doing my buddies clutch on his 1.8t we misplaced it and had the exact issues you're having.
I've had no problems with my Napa replacement axle...yet. However, I re-used the hardware from my original axle. The new hardware Napa gives you didn't look as good, and it was a hex drive, not triple square like the original VW hardware.
It wouldn't work. Even if the rotors/pads fit without modification, the rotors are drilled for a 5x112 bolt pattern. MK4's use 5x100. So your wheels wouldn't fit, not to mention the steering knuckle and caliper setup is much different between the 2 cars.
If the new Bosch relay didn't solve your glow plug problem, then you need to look further into it. Is the harness working correctly? Does each glow plug have proper resistance? Do you have power to the relay?
