    Need some help identifying this clutch part

    I'm in the process of doing my clutch, and this little half circle piece (on the right side of the picture) fell out. I've tried looking in the manual and on the etka drawings, but I can't seem to locate it anywhere. It has no part number stamped on it. It seems like it might have come from...

    Braided Steel Turbo Oil Feed Line?

    I remember reading a few years back these flexible oil feed lines are "bad" for your engine. Is this actually the case? Are there any downsides to using the flexible line? Can someone that has run this line chirp in? I'm thinking about replacing my old oil feed line with this one when I do my...

    Turbo Troubles :(

    On my way home this evening, my turbo (18/22 by KermaTDI from a few years ago, when I think they were still partnered with StreetToys) seems to have developed a bit of a whine (more so than usual). During spool up/down around 2-6 psi, the whine sounds like a police siren, and it definitely...

    Where to get new key?

    After 400k km, the key to my golf finally broke. :( I've glued it back together in the mean time, but I need to find a new one asap. The dealer quoted me about $300 to cut and program a new key. Does anyone else have any recommendations on where to get a new key quickly?

    Clutch Recomendations

    So I'm finally getting around to fixing a badly slipping clutch, and I'm wondering what I should replace it with. I currently have a Valeo g60/vr6 clutch and flywheel. Would the South Bend Stage 2 Endurance clutch be an appropriate replacement? Does this kit work with the flywheel I already...

    Anyone have a spare oil pan sitting around?

    I was changing out the oil this afternoon in my car, and when I went to put the oil drain plug back in, it just kept spinning. The thread on the oil pan is gone. It seemed to be getting weaker and weaker over the last few oil changes, I guess I was hoping it would hold out longer. Anyways, I...

    Best place to pick up a radiator?

    It seems my radiator is leaking in the top passenger corner, and as far as I know and been told, this isn't something you can fix easily. So I need a new one. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to get one? I would prefer new rather than used in an unknown condition. I'd also prefer...

    Car won't crank, sometimes

    So I parked my car yesterday at the bank, and when I came out a minute later, it wouldn't start. I put the key in, all the lights lit up normally, I turned the key to start it, and it wouldn't crank over. I managed to start the car by pushing it down a small incline and releasing the clutch...

    I have a set of 15" Avus wheels for sale. I'm hoping to avoid shipping them, so local pick up only please. Asking $300. Wheels have about 30% thread, but they should probably be replaced because of small cracks. One tires also has a hole patched. See pictures. Wheels have mostly regular wear...

    Tire place in Oshawa?

    Well... it finally happened. Oshawa has horrible streets. I hit an unmarked pot hole on a dark street where there was construction. The tire pretty much blew out instantly. I didn't lose control, and I was able to safely pull in to a nearby gas station. I changed out the wheel for my spare...

    Recomendations on Exhaust?

    My exhaust nearly fell off this week (its being held on by heavy duty zip ties at the moment... lol) after all the road salt from this winter. So... I'm looking for a new one. I've been wanting to upgrade it for a while now too. With my current mods I'm making about 165-170 hp and the EGT's...
