    Hello everyone, I'm parting out my spare ALH and the buyer doesn't want the injection pump. Is there any easy way to remove the injection pump without disrupting too much?? I realize it is belt driven by the timing belt.

    Anybody using a forced air heater in their home garage?

    Hey guys, I'm looking to add some warmth to my cold garage. I have to insulate it better and rebuild it in the spring/summer but for this winter I want to pickup a propane forced air heater.

    Hey guys, I'm in need of a driver's axle as my fairly new cardone select trash decided to fail in about 5k since installing it. I found a 2007 Jetta City 2.0 and although I know this is still somewhat a 'mk4'...does anybody know if a 2007 Jetta City 2.0l axle will work on a mk4 TDI manual...

    Long story short, I was cleaning bearings for my bike so I had a small bucket of diesel. A few days later, I was reaching over and somehow the keys fell into that small bucket. Great. So I quickly removed the battery and let the key fob air out. Now the key fob will not respond. No red light...
