    Worn out A/C Compressor?

    Note for those with limited budgets ;-) The late model compressors from wrecked VW's are bolt in on most. I think they are the ones used in the 1.8 motor cars. I have used two of them on the BRMs I have in the current fleet. Both compressors were from late model wrecked cars with sub 15K on the...

    Seeking Club Member from Jackson Wyoming that turned in a Passat

    I know it's a shot in the dark, but thought I would try anyways. We recently acquired a 2012 Passat SE Titanium with just under 40K miles. Whilst looking thru the owners manual, we saw a hand written note that referred to the TDI Club regarding a service spec. Car was purchased in Fresno CA...

    New NMS Owner - Quick Question on Rebuilt Titles and Emissions Warranty

    Nice - Knowing that these CKRA's have turbo issues, I will pray to the VW Gods that if I am going to have a failure, it will happen during this window. We like the BRMs we have, but they are getting long in the tooth and the kids don't fit in the back seat as well as they did with they were 5.

    New NMS Owner - Quick Question on Rebuilt Titles and Emissions Warranty

    Agree and I am good with the cancellation of the other warranty extensions. But, less than 1000 miles on the emissions fix and the extended emissions warranty would be a nice thing to have item. I will have to reach out to the emissions lawyers to validate. everything I am seeing alludes that...

    New NMS Owner - Quick Question on Rebuilt Titles and Emissions Warranty

    I think I already know the answer, but looking through the emissions flyer, I do not see any exception policy on "Rebuilt" titles. Based on prior experience with other OEMs, you are basically SOL when it comes to any warranty, but since it's emissions and the car IS registered and considered...

    Rebuilding 09 TDI wagon - which parts can i use?

    Be careful on the core support. Gasser is different from the TDI, at least that is my experience on the MK5 BRM. Ask me how I know ;-) I believe wagon body parts are the same (fender / hood)

    Agree with TDILast.. The INS co could still pull the plug, if there has not been too much of an effort. Similar issue with my last ordeal. Basically teardown and inspect was covered and the INS went from repair to total. I bought back the car, clean title and full book value check.

    Mobil Delvac-1 ESP vs Shell Rotella T6
