Originally I had not planned to pull it. It was ummm, spur of the moment when the first 2 cv bolts stripped on the auto tranny. I hate autos, it was the easiest way to deal with it. The subframe going in out of the other car has good TT control arm bushings and a new rack, so it made sense.Lug_Nut said:Looooonnngg winters...
Uber, It's interesting to me that you've pulled the subframe as part of the swap. I didn't. What is your reasoning?
Yes! Teal green.Uberhare said:Yes, the old car was a teal 94 Golf. The panels are in pretty good shape, it was just the floors that let go and the rear 1/4 panel was hit. What were you after?
Project was on hold tonight in favour of snow blower restoration! Grrrr.
Drum ABS seems to work quite well too. I'm pleased that mine work.Uberhare said:This car had rear drums with ABS. I've never seen that before on a MK3. Learn something new every day here....
If you ever decide you want to remove it along with all the associated wiring....Let me tell you it was installed before anything else in the interior of the car (ie heaterbox). That was no fun. I managed to do it without pulling the heater box, but it wasn't easy. The wires come through the firewall on the passenger side, along with the auto tranny harness. All gone, must have been 10 lbs of wires. All of wiring removed so far:Lug_Nut said:Drum ABS seems to work quite well too. I'm pleased that mine work.
So that you can add additional interlocking devices where the plug is inserted.Uberhare said:This next picture I found interesting. There is a capped plug that runs the stater wire back through the alarm system. Strange how VW did it. Why not just run it directly into the first connect.
