Hey everyone, I am new to this group so hopefully I do this right.. I have a Jetta that started randomly stalling at red lights and stop signs. Sometimes I would get lucky and it would fire right back up other times I would have to sit there for a while and keep trying.. noticed if I repeatedly...

So I bought a 2008 6spd Gti a week ago. I knew that it had no boost and I assumed the worst case scenario so I took the turbo off and it turned out the turbo was fine. I noticed before I took the turbo off that the Blow off valve was jbwelded shut and the diverted valve was closed off too. Never...
Upgraded to 5spd in my 1976 Gas Rabbit. Both 020. Clutch doesn’t disengage. Finger intact on clutch arm shaft. Return spring works. Do I need a longer pushrod? Did I install the pressure disc inside out? Hope to avoid dropping the trans again. Thanks</p>
im very new to Vw , bought the car 3 days ago , one of the problems , theres no heat .
replaced the blower motor , that was solid frozen , the wheel wont spin , but still not turning .
Theres no fuse diagram on either cabin or under the hood fuse box covers to check the fuses .
This seal is leaking. A part number and it's correct name would be very helpful.
My manual says it's a straightforward job to change it out. Some reassurance on that sentiment would be nice. Also, Should I expect to change the tran fluid or not? Cause I just did.
I am having issues with my daughter's Jetta.
In my daughter's words: "it has about 95000 miles on it and when I got in the car last night I smelled somewhat of a burning smell. I had a little bit of a difficulty shifting before I got on the highway but as soon as I was on the highway...
Volkswagen originally provides equal weight drive shafts for the MK1 vehicles with manual transmissions (about 10# each). The longer passenger shaft is hollowed out so the weights will be equal on both sides. Some of the "bargain" axle assemblies have solid shafts on the passenger side. While...
Will be posting here my progress on an EV conversion. 81 Rabbit Diesel 4Spd is the lucky donor.
Would like to hear your experience and words of wisdom on the subject, mainly drive configuration, battery technology, and accessory drive.
This is the first time I've owned a Rabbit, or anything VW for that matter, and I've enjoyed every minute of it. I've done quite a bit to it mechanically since purchasing in September of 2014. It's been a slow process, but I've received a lot of help through this forum that's really been...
I have picked up an 1989 5spd transmission for my 1985 5spd which has likely failed. From what I understand it should be a direct swap, although, I heard the 89 transmission does not have the upshift light.. no big deal for me! If anyone knows of any other differences pls let me know.
Hey all. Bought my cc new(ish) under 20k back in 2011. It's a 6spd manual. Had intake replaced at 40k. Did coils and plugs last year at 80k. Had to do a seafood cleaning through intake last year as well to clear up engine misfires and poor running.
Threw a bunch of codes last month...
New to the forum...
I have a 2009 rabbit with a 5spd. The trans and clutch are bad and need to be replaced.
Are there any special details to know before hand when attempting this repair? Special tools? Procedures? Tips on disassembly/assembly?
I am looking at buying an 85 Golf Diesel 5spd for $600. Not sure the full extent of the condition etc. I know where I can get a 84 Rabbit Diesel for $300, but the rabbit doesn't have the engine / trans / radiator / etc.
The question. How much of the components will cross over. Engine /...
I just bought a 2000 jetta tdi 5spd. It's a fix'er up'er with 225k miles on it.
Seems to run good, from what I can tell (new to the tdi engines). However if I'm on the interstate and let off the accelerator and instantly get back into it. The car will hesitate and a puff of...
Sup doods. Just got my 2007 v-dub rabbit. I wanna make this baby look and sound beautiful. I am going to add sound and eye candy all over her. I am not to worried about performance as of yet. So far people complement my GTI (Its a rabbit but people think it's gti. Noobs.)
Getting to the point...
I am a first time VW owner, I just bought a 1997 golf CL 2 door hatch 5 spd manual

But so far I can't find a single bit of information on my specific model ( Golf CL ) if anyone has...
