      Another vote to sell them both and start clean. If I did have to choose, it would be the white one. I guarantee you will lose if you try to fight rust on these cars.

      I am in the same boat and I recently come to realize I could not keep up with the amount of deterioration a MK3 run in winters can bring. The only way you can keep that car is if it remains a summer...

      I am in the for pro power window camp. It is much nicer cruising with both windows down and not having to reach over for the crank. I have nothing against having the crank window, but the reaching...

      I don't see it on rockauto, I can only find the high pressure line is for $20. The low pressure line has always been the expensive one.

      True, VR6 people get 120A units. For the 2.0 people attempting this, just did the upgrade about a couple of months ago. No clearance issues, it litteraly drops right in. It is noticably bigger in...

      :thumbup: thumbs up for doing things properly. Both you guys are right in respects to your causes. R134a doesn't help and the refrigerant companies do want to continue their monopoly.

      I am interested assuming it fits the US shroud. So is it 1" longer meaning the motor is 1" longer?? Are the blades wider?

      Note what part is stuck to the line and what part is the valve. I've done it for a few cars with some wrenches and crescent. My last replacement job didn't have the room for crescents and channel...

      Without a specific tool to push out the terminal, your best bet is to go to the junk yard and snip the connector off a good end. Splice and it's done.

      smoked cuts down on the brightness of the lamps. Not a good idea. Get the VR tails engineered to meet looks and specific output. You're better off spending the money towards E-Codes so you could...

      At the top of the strut, there is a hex that you're supposed to use to hold the strut rod from spinning while you tighten the big nut down. You'll need an offset socket wrench to tighten the strut...
