    Driver rear wondow wont go up or down but can hear motor

    Happened to me twice. The two piece pin that connects the window to the regulator tends to fall out and land on the bottom of the door. No easy fix that I know of to reattach the pin assembly. You tube has some videos that may help.

    Door Rust Repair (Amateur Hour)

    I had scratch marks on my hood after wet sanding with 3000 foam backed pad. Could not get rid of them; so I sprayed over the scratches with SEM Blenz-In. Worked pretty well. I too used the rattle cans. Base paint from and clear is SprayMax 1k.

    Oil Drip backside of engine

    A doggie collar on the hose you mention could help stop the leak. It did on my BEW. The collar replaces the clip which does not provide a good enough seal IMO.

    AFN engine stuck injectors - And injector wear?

    My guess would be the use of the proper diagnostic tool, such as VCDS. Looking for injector balance which I have no experience with.

    Peeling Clear Coat

    I can relate to the OP's concern. I too have to convince myself not to look for perfection when painting outdoors with rattle cans. I do have some rust which is almost an annual event to get rid of. The front of my hood has the most rust.

    Trying to find out what something is in car ?

    Two Winters ago I discovered, the hard way, that the antenna unscrews from its base. Broke off in a car wash which I don't often use. I was able to go back and retrieve it.

    2000 jetta drivers seat not locking

    I too had to lube the retracting/locking pin which was stuck in the retracted position. I took the whole assembly apart and sanded both the pin and the housing into which it slides. Lots of corrosion.

    Best method to splice in abs sensor wire harness to car? (2002 ALH NB right front)?

    I spliced my front right replacement cable under the left side cowl where it leads under the plastic cover for the conduit. That was easier than trying to undo all of the tape to locate the old cable. Hope this makes sense. Not familiar with the NB setup.

    I think the maximum removal torque is 25 ft.lbs. to be on the safe side.

    Views on Top Side Oil Changes

    I recently bought a syringe that sucks into one port and out through another port on the down stroke into an empty container. Made by Lisle. I had to drill additional vent holes in the top for easier pull and push.

    Check fuses. On a MKIV the fans will run if fuse 16 is blown or removed.

    2004 bew, no power

    You need a vacuum pump to test the actuator if it holds vacuum or not. MIne did not and I was able to replace just the actuator with a Garrett. This required a VNT delete as well. I believe CoolAirVW has a ready made kit available.

    Question about replacing an A4 brake cable with the Heavy Duty version

    I don't see where the metal clip that is behind the rear wheel is opened up in the above video. Those clips were very difficult for me to undo. They will have to be replaced in order for the thicker cable to be installed, along with the hooks.

    Any update? I too have a parasitic drain on the fuse 176. When I disconnect it the drain disappears, but the cooling fans turn on. Is this normal? Pulling fuse 180 will turn the fans off.
