      Pennsylvania has "laws" for the use of unmarked police vehicles. Most PSP and local law enforcement in PA have their own internal policies preventing them from using unmarked vehicles in pursuits and...

      Only problem is that they still use the known faulty GHS RADAR units, which they have changed the filters in multiple times to try and prevent RFI. They've done it secretly too because they know they...

      I would probably just look around more for beaver colored pieces if that's what he wants. My 99's have a similar interior with beaver dash and then the lower panels were lighter beige. I replaced...

      Mk1 and Mk2 models had a kit...Happich pop outs. Kamei used to sell them too. Mk3 would be entirely custom, including using non-tempered/non-safety glass or some kind of adhesive.

      You need a 6PK 1035 or 1033 belt, either will work. Non-AC is a different size and even shorter. AC version is also too big.

      I had a 95 and you pushed it forward to turn it on, but it didn't have MFA. It's possible the stalk was swapped for a Jetta one at some point.

      Yes, that price is if you pull it yourself. It's not hard with hand tools as long as you have a breaker bar or using a 1/2 ratchet. Just 5 bolts on each side if I remember. 1 for the strut, 3 for the...

      I'd just pull one cheap from a yard. You could probably pay a shop that specializes in frame pulling to straighten it out and possibly re-weld it if the integrity of the weld is damaged, but it'd...

      It's easier if you remove the oil filter and jack the engine up some for clearance. If it's stripped, you'll probably have to do that to get some vice grips or a bolt out socket on it. That bolt...

      You could run some UV dye for coolant. Should find the leak easy. If it's burning off you should be able to smell it.

      There were short and long Mk2 u-joints. Not sure which was for power and which was for manual but both had the same splines. The Mk2 universal joint was considerably longer than the Mk3 when I...

      In the U.S., I'm pretty sure all the Mk3 racks have the same exact spline and u-joint, regardless of ZF or TRW brand. In Europe it may be different. The only differences I know of are for Mk2...

      It's easier/free to just code it out. Just be sure that you remove the sticker off the rad cover that shows the emissions components if it has one. Remove the cover entirely or replace it with one...

      A p0334 isn't for the crank or cam sensor. It's for the knock sensor. The plug for it is right next to the crank sensor on the front engine mount bracket. It bolts on next to the grounds on the front...

      That's what I'd recommend and did. I was using a body shaping dolly/anvil as a hammer. Just pound it out in between jumping around your welds while it's still hot and it'll be easier to shape. When...

      Harbor Freight has a set of double ended ones for like $10 or you can go Craftsman if you want something better quality. The HF ones don't come with a 9 or 11mm though, so you might want to check...

      I had a driver's side that kept tearing the inner boot. Ended up being a bad transmission mount. I wasn't what most would consider low either.

      You can remove it without removing the engine, but it will be easier to remove with the engine removed. You won't be able to pull it out without lifting it above the frame rail and at that point...

      I'd recommend getting some cheap flare nut wrenches if you don't already have them. Last thing you probably want to do is end up stripping the nuts and then having to cut off and replace the brake...

      The weld through primer is for the bare metal areas that would overlap if you're doing lap or pinch welds. Even if you painted/sealed top and bottom, whatever overlap is there is not going to be...
