      I've changed the left and right ones with a bench vice (made in USA) and a cheater bar supporting my body weight.

      While replacing the timing belt, I go to remove the lower timing belt cover and it...

      I never posted if the heater worked or leaked - the freezing didn't damage anything that I know of.
      Soon to coool off again, but it was in the 30's and I had to drive to the DVM, I didn't even...

      was supposed to read as:
      "The newer mk3 single-pin pressure plate - and required 1-pin flywheel that the owner is just supposed to know will be needed, adding to the cost of the project and...
    4. Is MK3 single-pin clutch better than older 2-pin for a 1.8L?

      The newer mk3 single-pin pressure plate is often listed as a replacement for the installed dual-pin pressure plate/flywheel.
      Which is the better design?
      Either one just has to center the flywheel...

      Seatbelt buzzer relay? - I pulled that about 4 days after I bought the car.
      I have one if you post a WTB ad in the Classifed section.

      Not as if I get no heat from the heater, just the opposite. Every summer I have to block off the inlet at the valve otherwise the A/C just cools off hot air from the heater.

      No problem - I'll pass on that summer on H2O with a cast iron engine block and water pump impeller. Assuming it doesn't overheat. . Not claiming I've never done that ever. Look for the user tests...

      I don't think so - almost insulting.
      I left out that the water in there now is Flush cycle #4, the Prestone was not that old, mysteriously crudded up.

      Q: In general does the heater core fully siphon out when the coolant is drained?

      A: I drained the system of hot water then disconnected the heater - now its froze up. At least it didn't freeze...
    10. How do I drain the heater core? Did it all siphon out with the thermostat off?

      Heater core hoses are higher than the heater core, it can only drain via siphoning action or via a pump.
      IF I just pull the thermostat, or then connected a funnel to the heater valve and kept the...

      CLR is usually for rusty radiators (removed first). Why use that?

      Some here refuse to even use vinegar (5% acetic acid) - I can attest just circulating water & repeat 4 times will not cut it.

      Reservoir I cut open, I had glued the fitting back in with a clear glue, when I finally replaced it I ended up breaking the nipple off instead of it pulling out. I say the glue worked. ...

      When I was using that second fuel reservoir - the fitting pulled right out, I got a face of gas from that.
      I glued it back in, It held due to the tight fit limiting gasoline/glue contact.

      But it...

      Another cheap fix: use the easier to find VW Golf hatch struts - same length/diameter and threads into the hatch.
      2004 Golf for example.
      The only problem is the ball stud instead of a pin at the...

      Do I see a mk3 (1-pin) pressure plate/flywheel in the photo? Is the flywheel cut down?
      Is that a pair of door seals near it?
