    Appalachian Diesel Works - Asheville, NC

    Just talked with him because he's checking out my car's AC. He's doing alright just covered up in work. Without a doubt the best mechanic around!

    I might be able to make this! Need to decide on bringing the 2000 Golf ALH or the 2015 Golf Sportwagen.

    Anyone go to Black Forest Industries (Cary, NC)

    I have gotten things at BFI and have regretted buying most of them. The parts are made cheaply (Repeaters are popping out, side marker light lenses are melting, projector light pattern sucks). The salesman there doesn't seem to know what he's talking about either. I was shopping around for...

    Appalachian Diesel Works GTG, OCT 18th, 2014 - Leicester, NC

    It's just about a shame it's wedding season. I'll be there in spirit. Maybe, just maybe I can make the first hour to help set up before driving out to Durham.

    Appalachian Diesel Works - Asheville, NC

    Landon no longer wrenches from what I've heard. Daniel does a great job and yes, sometimes he gets backed up- but that's not a bad thing! Just make sure you plan ahead and schedule your maintenance with him. 2 timing belts and a head gasket have been done by Daniel and my Golf is still...

    Anyone near Central MS that can help with headlight replacement?

    I was able to do the glass swap with a hair dryer- it worked just fine.

    GTG Chapin, SC Jan 26, 2013

    My Saturdays have been KILLED by overtime but I really would like to see you all again. I'm at a point where I'm satisfied with my TDI so it's just oil changes for me in my future but I would love to help somebody wrench on theirs!

    Need help with Head Gasket question

    I had to have mine replaced recently. The machinist took off enough for me to require two gaskets. The symptoms I had were coolant making it out of the pressure relief valve at the top of the coolant expansion tank and hard coolant lines (due to them getting pressurized).

    AC doesn't work

    After going through the troubleshooting steps again and getting good readings I put the old fan control module back in and the AC started working! So I thought I had a bad FCM, replaced it, then discovered I had a bad pressure sensor and replaced that. The new FCM worked for a short time...

    AC doesn't work

    Ok. The AC light does come on. Just no fans anymore. It's so frustrating that after replacing the pressure switch it began working but after sitting overnight it doesn't work anymore. I'm going to try to swap the fan control module with the one from my parents' car just to test.

    AC doesn't work

    Low duty cycle... around 20%. So I need a charge, correct?

    Dogbone Mount Replacement Bushings

    I tried out the stage 1 mounts from BFI and really liked them. There was definitely more noise but the car felt very solid. Unfortunately the women complained about the noise to the point where I was forced into changing over to the dog bone from idparts.

    AC doesn't work

    I'm going to get a meter that can measure duty cycle because the temperature is the only thing that would have changed between the 12 hours that the AC was working and when it was not... unless something took a little time to get fried.

    AC doesn't work

    Ah! Now it's not working again today. Guess it's back to square 1. The AC button gives me nothing- it lights up but the fans don't kick on. I wonder if I lost some charge when I changed out the pressure switch. Should have been completely insignificant though.

    AC doesn't work

    A new pressure sensor got the AC going again in my car. At first I had about a 9.5V reading at the compressor clutch coil (regardless of the AC switched on or not in the cabin) and replaced the fan control module which dropped the voltage reading to 0. After replacing my FCM the radiator fans...
