    11mm internals on 10mm pump??

    I called a shop a few years back to see if I could turn a 10 mm pump into a 11 mm pump. It can be done but it would be cheaper just to buy a pump from the shop. There are not many internal parts that are common to both pumps. I told the guy to stop after he was up to $1000 in parts.

    How long do you plan to keep your car?

    I have always said from purchase if I could get 500K I would be happy, at 410k and running strong with no major problems 500k should be easy. I will take it one oil change at a time and see how it goes. I still love to drive it and I love things that are simple and reliable. I spoke to a...

    I had the 912's. The traction was ok when the tires were new. As they got older the traction got horrible. Wet traction was the worst. I put my snows on in the middle of October because it was scary driving wih them on. I have Michelin pilot exalto's on now. There's a $70 rebate on now, not sure...

    2002 TDI outside mirror corrosion

    Yes, mine has been vibrating and slowly separating from the door. I took the mirror off and the aluminum bracket is corroded bad. It looks like the bracket is a part of the mirror. I am going to check with the dealership to see my options.

    5th gear oiling update-have you seen this one??

    If vw took care of us they would have done this mod from the beginning. Dumb a$$ engineers putting an oil supply hole above the oil level. This is a bullet proof way of ensuring the 5th gear is oiled, all others are sub par...

    02J 5th Gear Lubrication Modification

    I put the car on ramps, added 600 ml until it ran back out of the fill plug. I've done about 200 km and no oil has burped out the vent so far.

    02J 5th Gear Lubrication Modification

    I agree....just two 10 mm holes would do the trick...drain all the oil and solve the oil starvation issue.

    02J 5th Gear Lubrication Modification

    I’m not sure I would do this mod with the transmission in the car. You could potentially ruin and good transmission by not get all the cuttings out. There are thousands of these transmissions out there used by people not as anal about their cars as the people that frequent this site and they are...
