My wife puts 135 miles a day on our B4. We also take long trips regularly.
The car keeps on pluggin! I do most of my work on the car on the week ends.
At present I'm restoring another B4 for the winter months. :eek:
I decided to use my steel rims for Hokapaleta 8s for winter. In summer I bought a set of rims 15" for nokia performance summer tires. It was an expensive way to go. I like the straight summer tires. They are wicked in the rain. Feels like I'm on rails!
That's good to know. I got the Febi one from ID Parts and it was made in China.
I hope it does not come apart. I did all the belts today and it's the first time the timing on the pump was excellent. There was no need to adjust the pump.
Yup 80 on the low side is no good. May be the pump is dying on me. usually I get 35- 40 on the low side. With hot days 200-250 on the high side. I'll find the problem just a little time is all.:rolleyes:
Compressors seize due to lack of oil usually. It's hard to tell how much oil is in the system. When I change a compressor the condenser, evaporator and lines get flushed. The accumulator drier gets replaced. You have to try and get all the metal particles out. The Chinese compressors are...
I put my HVAC box in with the dash. Boy that wasn't any fun. I forgot how much trouble it was. I still don't have any A/C yet. The compressor seems to be gone.
I changed the Evap valve with no luck so far. Sill have a 80 PSI on the low side while the compressor is running.
Put my fogs in today! I'm going to keep the relay in. I only use them with the lows any way. My wife uses the car for work. I don't want her getting stopped by a Smokey! They are all over here in NY.:rolleyes:
Wow, I'm in the process of changing out my air box. The recirc bellows quit working and all the door felt came out of the vents. I decided to replace it this summer and replace the recirc bellows. It's quit a big job to me. I will be evacuating the A/C system too. I do have all the A/C tools.
