  1. Speedometer cable lube recommendations

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum

  3. No Fuel to Injectors

    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    1981 Rabbit, 1.7L CIS Fuel is definitely getting to the 'fuel distributor' because I had a leak in the cold start valve fuel line and fuel was abundant.

    The car I have bought has had a re-spray and the sills appear to have been repaired. in doing so the aft roof drain which runs inside the body doesn't seem to have anywhere to drain out so the sills fill with water and looks like they've made their own drain holes.
