    The seat belt retractor in my 1971 super beetle is stuck, and cannot be loosened with the hot water and soap trick described in YouTube. I need to open the retractor but which side? One side has the stuck gears (fatter side?) and the other has the tightly wound spring that explodes out when the...
  3. 1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    a few years back I replaced my struts and mounts, and I made the terrible mistake of replacing my springs, thinking that the 30 year old ones would be getting soft enough by now to be worth replacing. now I have a broken driver side spring, and Im considering replacing it with my old spring, as...

    Stock suspension systems are perfect for regular driving conditions, as they provide just enough responsiveness with comfort and softness. Yet, for spirited driving, it may be not good enough. KW coilovers is a perfect way to improve handling and lower the ride height of your VW. Coilovers are a...

    <p> 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>
  8. Passat B7 Forums
    I have a 2017 R-line passat with 26000 miles, the ride quality is horrible and noisy. The issue has been looked at by VW 5 time, at one time there was a groaning noise too. They initially replaced the sway bar links as they were loose, and eventually they found a spring where the top was "egg"...

    I have a 1988 1.8 VW Scirocco GTX, Mark 11, registered in UK, E401 YGK, and need a replacement boot/tailgate lock, as the present one is sometimes very difficult to open, and only with a key. Anyone any idea where one is obtainable. According to VW, the part was obsolete in 2009, which is most...

    Recently swapped a 1989 transmission into our 1985 cabby. It shifts great but only if I lift up on the shifter. If I shift normally I can go into reverse without pushing down and it is difficult to find gears. If I very slightly pull up on the shift knob everything works perfect! I think the...

    I recently bought an 07 Gli and it's got several mods including Evolution vflow intake, Bsh pcv block off plate, DV relocate (Forge), and a full turbo back B an B exhaust. I don't know what stage or tune it is. In fact, the reason I know most of this is because of the people over at the golfmkv...
  16. EOS New To The Forum / Frequently Asked Questions
    Has anyone fitted 35mm lower springs to their EOS if so how did it affect your ride. The reason I ask is because my previous car a B6 Passat was on coil overs and 19's the ride was a tad harsh to say the least. I am running 235/40/18's at the moment and the ride is good but I just don't like the...
