      It might have the same year, but there's no way the car is going to have the same VIN. $100 is a bit steep. They sell on eBay for about half that, and typically like $25 or less at a yard. Ask them...

      If the codes are coming back after clearing it's most likely not a matching TCU, unless there's an obvious wiring issue, but sounds like there isn't if it's driving fine. What year was the...

      You'll throw all those solenoid codes if you had the transmission harness disconnected and then had the ignition on. Could also be from the old transmission. It shouldn't drive normal if all the...

      Stop making more threads and just take it to a shop already if you don't know how to properly diagnose it yourself. If you keep driving it like that and changing the alignment without knowing what...

      I'm assuming you are talking about the high pressure hose. You don't need to drop the subframe, rack, or anything to remove it, but it will certainly make it easier. Was rotted out on the last Mk3 I...

      Used to have that happen in my old Golf Sport. Wasn't speed related. Heard of it happening to others too. Alarm would just decide to arm itself randomly while driving. I don't know what caused it...

      Maybe just bad luck or a loose connection. I'd take it back and have them test it. You should be able to get a full refund or exchange for another if you want. I've got over 4 years on one in my...

      I'd take it to a shop for a proper alignment. Popping could be various things including cv joints, ball joints, control arms, etc. If it didn't start popping until you made adjustments, you should...

      I'd definitely try a known working OEM or OEM replacement coil. Those MSD coils are hit and miss and known to fry ECU's on VWs...at least the Blaster 2's used to be. You should be able to find the...

      Maybe worth checking your oxygen sensor wiring. If it's been misfiring, the sensor(s) are probably fouled anyway.

      Smoke could just be crap burning off like stated, but if it's your first time doing a job like this, I'd double check the timing belt tension. If the tensioner is installed incorrectly or not...

      They could have been old codes. If whatever scanner you're using can't clear them, then you can definitely clear them with VCDS. Other possibility is that the trans doesn't match the TCU if codes...

      Fuel lines run on the passenger side, so if that's where you took a hit, I'd say there's a good chance you damaged the feed or return if you're smelling fuel. You should be able to see them easily...
