    New here but not to Jetta. Installing new transmission. Need to know exactly which bolts go where when mounting to engine. I know, I’m a idiot, I should have marked them like I did everything else. I have the Bentley manuals also. Thanks

    The bolts holding the A/C bolts in place keep falling out due to vibration from the engine. It's happened before. I tried loctite, but they came out anyway. This time the compressor hit the lower radiator hose causing it to wear through and burst. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a...

    Ok so I've been driving a 1981 vw rabbit caddy for about 2 months now. The engine sat for over a year but started right up and has been fine till a few days ago.

    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...
    I have changed the water pump twice before on the Tiguan and cannot remember the torques specs for the 5 bolts to the block. Have the sequence but cannot find where I have written it down. I have found online in the audi workshop manual the spec being 9 nm (6.63 ft. lbs) which seems low to me...

    Good afternoon! So, I had someone back into the front bumper of my ‘80 Rabbit. :( One side is pushed in and the other is sticking out. It seems as if all I need to do is loosen the mounting bolts up and straighten it out by hand, but was told the ‘absorbers’ are a one-shot deal. Is that true...

    I'm replacing the thermostat in my 2004 W8 and can't get the lower intake manifold to come off. I've removed the ten bolts, but the gasket is apparently holding it on. I've pried gently on it, but it doesn't move. When I look into the holes that the bolts were in, I see some of the gasket has...
