  7. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    Hey guys, I've registered here to see if anyone has any interest in a complete 82 Rabbit cabrio. The car has been in an outbuilding on my property for nearly 20 years, and the owner has told me to dispose of it. I'm actually a long time member of 914 World, so I know the value of old car parts...

  12. RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I just joined this club, and hope someone has experienced, or have knowledge of the same problem as I have with my 2007 Rabbit. The local VW dealership is not able to pinpoint the problem, and by process of elimination the cost could easily be more than the value of the car. Cold or warm, when...

    My LLW Alternator that I replaced just had a semi-failure. The Case screws that hold the body together had a strippage from the re-builder. One of the Case screws backed out due to strippage and started to hit the Alternator fan. A 4.5mm Nut wasn't replaced on the screw on the back, so I added 3...
