  7. Passat B6 TDI sport 170 EGR cooler bypass

    Passat B6 Forums
    Hi all, I'm looking to bypass the EGR cooler as it's leaking coolant and consuming maybe half a litre every 150miles. I've been told it's easy enough to do with a piece of pipe to connect the inlet and outlet points thus bypassing the cooler completely. Has anybody got any experience of this or...

  11. no run at idle

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I just switched engines on an 81 caddy, putting in a 1.7 engine from an 83 convertible. I can't get the engine to run at idle. It seems to have low compression, but I've had engines with low compression before and could keep them running. The 1.7 I replaced had the timing set at 3 degrees after...

  13. MFD Switchout- 2007 Rabbit

    VW Rabbit MKV Forum 2006/2007/2008/2009
    I have a 2007 Rabbit. Can my MFD1 half-display cluster be swapped out for an MFD2 full display? I see that they are listed with donor car mileage. Does that mean that my car will read that mileage or will my computer set it correctly? Can it be set for my car's correct mileage? Thanks!

    Jetta MK2 / 1984-1992
    Just had engine rebuilt and installed in my 90 Jetta GLI 16v. Engine will not start unless throttle is fully opened up. Engine will misfire and run poorly unless vacuum line is removed from back of intake. When it is removed, it runs balls to the wall. If you cover hole half way, engine runs...

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    I have pulled my driver side axle to replace it. I ordered a rebuilt one, twice and neither have fit. Both of them bind when you tighten the axle nut fully. I can back off half a turn and have no problems. When I compare the old axle with the rebuilt there is a difference in the way the ends...
  19. Donor Roof Transplant

    Volkswagen Tiguan Forum
    The plan is to remove the entire roof of a salvaged Tiguan which has the panoramic sunroof and roof racks and transplant the whole thing, replacing the now plain roof.
