    Just found and repaired the water leak issues on my 2003 golf tdi. I replaced the door seals and window seals (these were only part of the problem).

    Jetta MK2 / 1984-1992
    This subject may have been addressed many times, but I could not access it. Anyone have any experience in deviating from the recommended pump timing in trying to improve economy. Bentley's calls for .90 +or- .02 with a checking range of .83 to .97, this seems like a fairly wide range for a...
