    1975 - 1984 VW Rabbit General Forum
    The bolts holding the A/C bolts in place keep falling out due to vibration from the engine. It's happened before. I tried loctite, but they came out anyway. This time the compressor hit the lower radiator hose causing it to wear through and burst. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a...
  3. Brake and Power Steering Fluid Question

    RABBIT OWNERS CLUB
    I am looking to do some fluid maintenance on the car since they have been in there for 5+ years. For the brakes I imagine any old DOT3 should work as stated on the cap, or does it need to be something more specific? For the power steering, I have the red cap and I believe it takes Dexron II...
