      Free tip- the fuel level sender is N/A and that small plastic fuel surge-tank/reservoir/filter goes for $89 plus shipping at GAP.

      How much for just the driver side knuckle/hub shipped to 61115?

      Will you ship any of the parts listed?
      Front knuckles for example, or did they go with the car?.

      Looking for a driver's side knuckle/hub in good condition.
      Shipping from the Pittsburgh area to 61115 not bad even if 10 lbs.

      Looks like I had the worst case scenario - a new bearing assembled with a used hub that should have been scrapped, then re-used the old axle nut, and used a spacer to avoid machining the knuckle.

      Did I forget to mention I was made aware of the LOOSE AXLE NUT by excessive brake noise, as the wheel was at now at an angle! [Edit] The wheel hub, normally pressed in, instead was easily pulled out...

      MY experience using a shim- a spacer really - at the knuckle is:
      VERY VERY ANNOYING to check the half-axle nut torque, as a last check for road noise:
      only to find 25 ft-lbs instead of 175...

      From experience maybe you overtorqued the coolant flange bolts. 7.25 ft-lbs is easy to overdo.

      I found aluminum flanges in the yard to replace the pitted ones on my 1987, no problems.

      I have the sunroof mechanism from an mk2 Jetta. It only slides back and forth. I didn't get the panel itself, though.

      Thanks for the diagram.

      To find online - the best way is to search auto parts sites using the VW parts numbers shown.
      Sometimes a site like AutohausAZ will have the part, but is not listed under...
