    Bad wheel bearings? Causing multiple codes and erratic DSG?

    Bump. How’d this work out for ya? I’ve got nearly the exact same behavior minus the TPMS warnings. I also have an airbag fault which I suspect is related to the presence of the faults in...

    Golf MKIV Smyth Ute Project

    I was never able to find anything that could adequately bond the side windows. I just wond up riveting them because no matter what I did it would always pop up on one end. It was that plexi they supplied. I suspect that one of the properties of that material is that absolutely nothing can bond...

    It’s just regular ol great stuff foam from Home Depot. I just let it ooze out and then sliced it flush once it was set. And yes fiberglass matting and regular old epoxy pretty much everywhere. There was some bondo applied at paint time.

    And to answer you other question, yes just regular black bed liner. I think it was called U-pol raptor or something. I think I bought it on amazon. I also scrubbed all of the surfaces with scotchbrite and a little bit of brake cleaner then applied some “adhesion prompter” also sold by U-pol. All...

    It was like the fifth one or something like that. I regret the amount of money I spent on it. My little golf and trailer were perfectly capable of hauling around anything I needed to haul around. Every bit as useful as a truck. I will admit that the reasons why we chose to embark on this...

    Clutch (Slave) Hydraulic line seal(s) - leak

    Used line? Seems like I used to have a little pile of these lines inmy shop. I can’t see myself selling one for more than about $15. Not that I have a shop anymore or a pile of clutch lines.

    2010 Golf TDI Timing Belt

    Your tools will probably work but realize that you’ll need a second pin for the pump and also that there were two styles of crank lock used for the two different PD motors. I am just not sure which of the two types is used by the CR motors since I always used my Metalnerd universal crank lock...

    I tried over and over again to helicoil these and I could never ever get the pin straight. Best bet is a new knuckle
