Got there around 10am, pretty hot already so I only stayed about an hour. More vans then I've ever seen in one place with a few flatbeds and double cabs. Not a lot of water-cooled, but a few nice Rabbit pickups, Cabriolets, and JSWs, and Golf Rs.Totally forgot to mention it but tomorrow is the 37th annual bug in at Luther westside VW in st. louis park. My wife and I will be attending and hopefully may be able to meet some of you TDI enthusiast's! Not planning to be a part of the show but we'll be driving the red beetle (biodsl red).
Starts at 8AM

There was one tdi that I saw. White rabbit truck with an Iz motor and lifted on Toyota rims and generally grabbers. Real nice owner.I went also , lots of nice stuff .
I wondered if WATER COOLER & TDI's weren't allowed
Dang , that T-boned car looks like a possibility --- want to swap my auto to manual .
Looks like a different engine ?
Anyone know if all the trans parts will swap , hoping that to get EVERYTHING in one package ?
I did buy many parts from someone on this site a while back , but figured that lots missing little parts [ nut bolts etc. ] that could make the swap take forever & cost a lot more ?
I did get trans. shift cables , axils , flywheel & clutch ++ .
Then put my parts kit back up for sale .
A couple yrs. ago there was a TDI gathering in Mpls. at a row of shops by Hiawatha , stopped by a couple months ago , new owners now .
Thanks for the tip on the gathering .
Sorry, on my phone I cant see that. It's a bew. So its a different engine but the trans and all your other tidbits would be the exact same. The final drive gear ratio is just a bit taller for 5th, but otherwise the same. So technically you may get 1mpg more "yay" lol.Same as listed on the left - 2003 Jetta TDI wagon - ALH .
So the doner is one yr. newer , I do not know , would have to look up , but I thought it was NOT an ALH ?
It is not a rumor. The odometer will freeze at 999,999 kilometers or the equivalent number of miles -- unless you find someone with the software that lets you roll back the numbers. The actual distance will continue to be recorded in the engine computer.Just hit 450k today in the TDI, is the rumor true that the odometer will stop at 624,000 Miles?
I just had a customer hit this in your doppleganger (silver ALH wagon, 5spd). He commutes from Grantsburg into the cities everyday. Matt Litke can help modify the cluster. ClustersByLitke@gmail.comFunny I was at the Bug In in the Vanagon, never thought to check here.

Anyone near St. Michael, MN this weekend? My brother is there for a BMX Nationals race with his daughter and the wheel bearing failed on his MKIV. Hoping someone here would be gracious enough to shuttle them to and from the track to their hotel on Friday and Saturday. I'm driving out from Toledo, OH Saturday with a trailer to haul it home.
The race is in St. Michael, MN they are staying in Minneapolis, MN.
Any help would be appreciated more than I can convey on this forum.
Found the "smoking gun"... driver side parking brake cable seized... replaced 1 rotor, both stub axles, stub axle bolts, both wheel bearings, both axle nuts, both ABS sensors and both parking brake cables. Both caliper parking arms snap back like a slingshot, fast. Test drove and all temps within that of other MKIV's.
