  2. Heads up on Alternator replacements.

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum

  4. HELP!! Can I play music via USB in 2018 GTI S ??

    GTI MK7 / 2015 and up
    Traded in my 2007 GTI that had a 6 CD changer. Just realized that my 2018 GTI S does NOT have a CD player. I am living in the past, as I do NOT have a smart phone or an MP3 player (nor do I want one). Can I use a USB flash drive and will it function (choose genres, albums, tracks and artists)...

    MK1 Rabbit Body
    During my Current Top replacement I just snapped my rear cable, Dang it. The price jump from 50 to 70 dollars for my preferred cable was too much. I didn't want to make one, as I am trying to keep this one OEM.... So MTM manufacturing has an unsheathed cable..... How to sheath it.... Heat...

    I got tired of that Return hose weeping, or breaking, and every time that I have to take it off pray that I don't cut it off or break the radiator. The Bend of it always bothered me since 1980. Well I took a 1/4 90 degree brass barbed fitting and 2 more hose clamps, to change it.
