You'll have to tell me what wget is...dos?
I used the import web feature of frontpage.
There is a link off my home page that points to my home pc, and that has a link called 'tsbs'.
Of course my hard drive could crash. I'm not exactly doing backups.
I guess I'll try to update it once in awhile.
(PS: Try it and tell me if it really works ok)
BTW: did you guys see the tsb on silicones and the maf. It said that any detailing materials containing silicone could damage the maf. I think should wait to cure. I wonder if the silicone sealant typically used on the K&N filters might be an example?
I also changed the webpage so it can be accessed from you computer if anyone wants a zip file with the index page and all the TSB's in one zip file of 30 megs let me know and i'll fin d a way to send it to you!
I am interested in getting the file but I don't have a cable modem or anything with high speed access. Can you burn it on a CD? If so I would be more than happy to trade some greenbacks for a copy. I could have my friend download it and burn a copy for me if you e-mailed it to him?
Someone came to their senses? Maybe or just that the password feature was f*cking up so they went back the old way. Yes, someone has to download all that before they put the fixed password feature back up. Damn I don't get home until 9:30pm tonite. I would be able to download all the website myself.
I have cablemodem.
You got somewhere I can FTP or an HTML link you can email me with? I would be very interested and also willing to put them all up on a web page - my server will not allow the direct download of zip files but I think I can work around it. .
The last couple pages of the Warranty book outlines how you can BUY individual TSB's directly from VW. However the index is FREE.

Updated Service Information You Can Obtain
Volkswagen monitors product performance in the field and regularly sends dealers the latest service information about Volkswagen vehicles. Now you too, can get these bulletins
Bulletins cover a wide variety of subjects: the proper use and care of your car, costly repairs, inexpensive repairs or adjustments which, if done early, may avoid costly future repairs. Some bulletins describe repairs about new or unexpected conditions. Others describe improved repair procedures or parts improvements. All of this information can also help a qualified technician better service your vehicle.
Most bulletins apply to conditions affecting a small number of vehicles. Your dealer or a qualified technician may have to determine if a specific bulletin applies to your vehicle.
You can order any or all of these bulletins direct from Volkswagen or look at them at a Volkswagen dealer. You can order an index which lists and identifies these bulletins and summarizes the most important ones. You also can order individual bulletins. However the index is necessary to identify them.
How to Order an Index
Indexes are published quarterly and updated cumulatively. When you order an Index we will send you the most current. For the current model year you may want to wait for the last index of the model year to know what was published. Some bulletins pertaining to a particular model and model year may be published in a later year's index. To order an index, use the Volkswagen Product Service Publication Order Form in the middle of this brochure. The Index is free of charge
You may also order the Index by calling toll-free at 1 (800) 544-8021. Listen to the recording and leave your name, address, vehicle make and model year. If you prefer, you can also fax your request to 1(800) 572-1438.

How to Order Individual Service Bulletins
Instead of buying all bulletins issued by Volkswagen, you can buy bulletins for a particular model or model year. To do this you will first need the current Index. For individual bulletins there is a charge of $4.00 U.S. for the first bulletin requested in each order and $2.00 U.S. for each additional bulletin requested in that order.
Cautionthis section was originally in BOLD type... These bulletins are intended for qualified technicians. They are not meant for the CASUAL do-it-your-selfer. Qualified technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. Improperly performed repairs or maintenance can adversely affect the safety of your vehicle, possibly leading to accident or injury. They may also impair the economy, durability or reliability of your vehicle and may void the warranty of your car. If you are not sure that you can perform a job properly and safely, you should not risk trying to do so.
