      Do you have a non-Weekender MV or GLS (with Climatronic) or a MV Weekender or Camper (manual A/C and heat)?

      I replaced the left and right mounts myself. The left (driver's side) was really difficult, but doable--had to disassemble the mount to get it into a restricted space. I did not replace the...

      One reason for the original seat base height might be so that a European-sized battery could still fit under the driver's seat. There are other battery options, of course.

      I also wonder about the $8K you'd supposedly get if you fixed it up. Hmm. Maybe on a pop-top '93.

      I just checked on my 2001 EVC. The wiring diagrams for it are very similar to your blue-dashlight 1999. I looked at the OEM harness pins.

      Pin 7 is indeed 12V constant (direct from battery).
      Pin...

      Not saying the filter should work forever, but the other side of the coin is "Where do you get your fuel?" :D

      Not sure how the clockspring gets damaged. I only thought of it since you mentioned that turning the steering wheel lit up your fault light. I had ESP/ABS lights go on and it was due to a faulty...

      My first thought was steering angle sensor AKA clockspring. Can you read any diagnostic codes with VAG-COM (VCDS)?

      Can't hurt to do the brake switch, though, and it's MUCH cheaper.

      On the 8-pin power connector to the back of the radio, pin 7 should be 12V battery (constant) and pin 4 should be 12V switched. The wire to pin 7 should be solid red, while pin 4 should have a...

      I have the exact bleeder pictured above and have used it for multiple brake fluid changes on my EV and other VWs (Mk IV). Works fine and does replenish the fluid reservoir as you bleed the calipers,...

      Or park with the rear window facing the sun. Or (carefully) hook up an electric heater inside the car. Not sure a hair dryer will generate enough heat on the latch mechanism from the outside. I'm...

      You may have to wait for warmer weather. I had a similar problem when the van was cold. There was some thick grease on a tab that had to move to be engaged by the handle. The tab stuck in a...

      Seriously, do try riding the brakes lightly while going over a rough patch in the road. See if the noise stops. My EV has a slight metallic clanking from the front pads. It goes away when my foot...
