      I do not know. But to find everything loose I have to say it had to be a contributor. It could have been that the belts stretched or "run in" a little since installation, if that's the appropriate...

      The honeymoon was a bit short lived.

      Yesterday the alternator bolts decided they wanted to go on vacation and left their homes as I was headed to work. One cracked and the other probably backed...

      Fantastic. I owe you a :beer:

      I'm off to find some bolts.


      BTW you can drive a 88 16v scirocco for 60 miles on battery power only w/o any power accessories on..... didn't even over heat and...

      Excellent got the same numbers from the VW Parts counter as well.... 1.5 pitch is correct.

      Does it say which one on what side?

    5. One step forward 2 steps back - alternator mounting bolts - 88 16v

      While I was heading to work today my mounting bolts fell out allowing the alternator belt to loosen then be ground up.

      Does anyone have the spec's for these 2 bolts so I can go get some?

      Thanks

      Good luck with that one.

      Sounds like you need to borrow a known good cluster and see if everything starts to work..... then go from there.

      Sounds good.

      I have a new set of coilovers to install and I'll really be ready to roll. I might even drive it to SoWo this year.
    9. Back in love with the Rocco..... after a little more maintenance was performed.

      I like saying I do most of my own wrenching but I know when to turn to professionals to do things that if I screw up turns the car into one big paperweight.

      Last week I took my rocco to an old...

      Bentley says GL-4 80W.

      Did a search and really didn't come up with much unless it was buried in the thread and I missed it.

      6K to move it on right now.

      But If you would invest about 500-1000 to have the paint touched up and the divot removed from the fender I would say start at 8-9K.
