I'm trying to solve an issue on my new to me 2004 wagon. I noticed that the auxiliary fan runs whenever the ignition is on (car running or not), regardless of coolant temp, with A/C switch OFF.
I changed the coolant temp sensor at the base of the radiator yesterday hoping this might cure it...
Anybody know of / used viton seals for their thermostatic T on the OEM MKIV fuel filter? Mine is weeping a small (but irritating) amount of fuel at the T.

- New hose clamps at the T
Filter and T were...
I'm getting a turbo back exhaust installed on Wednesday and was wondering if I need to do any prep to make removing the stock system a smooth process.
Thus far, I am planning to take off my steel skidplate (and leave it off for the install) and shoot some WD-40 on the downpipe nuts, since it...

Can anyone recommend or suggest either a competent shop or guru somewhat local to them for the initial install (any maybe future service as well)...

My neighbor Pat (1FSTVW) and I have been knocking around the idea of hosting a Portland GTG this spring to kick off the season.
This post is mainly to gauge interest and perhaps narrow down the date (April or May). We're thinking about wrenching, food and fun (same as usual)...
Hey UK TDIers,
I'm looking to pick up a VW part or 2 on UK eBay and need to know what type of shipping to look for/request back to me in the US.

Thanks for your input.
