      The tension sleeve has closed/tightened up. Just push it open with a C clamp and some sockets to permit the sleeve to move back into the alternator frame.

      Jack, based on your comments am I correct to assume that an internal failure in either oxygen sensor can damage the 2.8l VR6 MK4 ECU? Does this potential/problem exist for both the AFP and BDF code...

      What were the failures that caused both VR6 ECUs to be bad? There are several 2.8l VR6 MK3 and MK4 cars in my extended family.

      On my 01 GTI 1.8l turbo the ECU can be changed without need of an immobilizer code. Maybe the 01 GTI VR6 is the same but I have not tried an ECU swap with a an 01 VR6 GTI yet although I have one. You...

      Sounds like your GTI is running in one of the emergency running modes due to a failured accelerator pedal position sensor? Check the wiring harness connector to the accelerator pedal or substitute a...

      As I posted above I believe the part number change between the 96 and 97 model year versus 98

      With 170,000 miles on the original chains, guides and tensioners your AFP VR6 engine is on borrowed time --it might run longer or jump timing very soon-- like tomorrow. You should plan to pull the...

      I have also recorded an implausible camshaft position sensor DTC when the problem was solely due to an improperly installed crankshaft sensor ring on a 2006 1.9l Jetta TDI code BRM engine. The DTC...

      You should try to buy or borrow a spare ECU. Unlike later model VWs there is not immobilizer
      in the 93 Corrado SLC VR6 which makes for easy swaps. Or swap your ECU into a known good running OBD1...

      Correct. The first installation of a new coolant tube with new o ring seals will require substantial force to compress the o ring. The next time the o ring will install easier which seems to imply...
