    Good evening! I have a 1980 Volkswagon Rabbit (Diesel). ISSUE: Battery dies within a day or two after a full charge. BACKGROUND: For a few weeks now, I noticed the battery light come on but illuminate like a dancing strobe light. Seemed to be intermittent when it came on. Sometimes it'd be...

    Just found your site; I have owned my 74 "orange" Love Bug since new. Purchased during the fuel crisis of 1973...traded my Olds 442 for it. I live in Texas, so stopped driving it in 1980 when we had a string of 40+ 100 degree days. I retired in 2016 and decided it was time to "un-retire" the...

    So strange. My 1980 Rabbit Diesel has been running everyday with no issues. Tried starting this afternoon and I noticed the glow plug light didn't illuminate. Still waited about 20 seconds before turning the key. Car starts (starter whirls like normal, very quickly), but can't get the engine to...

    Hello all, I have a 1980 rabbit convertible that will only run for about twenty seconds after starting. The fuel pump will run at first with the key in the on position, then after the motor starts to run the pump quits for some reason. My question is what tells the fuel pump relay to energize...

    I have a 1980 Rabbit 1.5 Diesel. The other day, after idling in my driveway for about an hour, I backed it up about 10 feet, then shut it off. I got out of the car and realized I still needed to back up further, but when I tried to start it up again (less than 15 seconds later) it wouldn't...

    Someone gave me this aftermarket Mk1 Rabbit manual. I guess Popular Mechanics used to do these? Anyways, I scanned it in. Some fun reading...one section is titled "How Not to Blow Up Your Battery": https://dubmanuals.com/download-1975-1980-vw-rabbit-car-care-guide/

    I'm in no rush, but I want to change an outer cv in my 1981 scirocco. Not going the whole axle route seems to be against the grain;, but I kept on searching and found a cv on ebay that says mk1's up to 1980. The part number is 171407311d. I'm tempted to buy it anyway and just find out...

    1980 Rabbit, York compressor: Some 15-20 years ago, heater core sprang leak. Not wanting to tackle the job at that time, I used "stop leak" which seems to have actually held up since then. Some 10-15 years ago, the actuator started acting up. It works OK when it's warm but on cold days, it...

    Afternoon! I have a question related to by 1980 Rabbit 1.5 Diesel. I've done some research but still having difficulty determining if the bolts (stretch bolts?) that secure the valve cover need to be replaced after taking off the cover (circled below in red). I believe at least 1 is stripped...

    So, I'm trying get my front turn signals working again (they were disconnected during the front-end rebuild after the wreck), but I'm having trouble understanding the schematic in my Bentley manual. I was hoping to be able to just plug-in the replacements, but can't figure it out. I'm totally...

    Howdy. I drive a 1980 1.6 Diesel Rabbit (no AC) and I’ve noticed a strong odor of diesel coming in the cabin at highway speeds. I haven’t been able to isolate it to only when the ambient air side vents are open, when the blower is on (defroster & feet vents), or from someplace else. I know...
