      The plastic shifter pin broke forever ago and after a series of repairs that didn't hold, I'm looking into replacing the whole assembly. Obviously, a salvaged one from another MK4 would work but I...

      Ah, OK. I was confused at first. I thought those aren't Avus - they look much better! If you were here in the States, I'd scoop those up as a replacement for my boring, stock Avuses. Someone buy...
    6. WTB: Tiptronic Shifter Assembly (for '02 Jetta 1.8t)

      I've got a broken shifter pin just like half the tip drivers out there. I'm working on a retrofit but in case that doesn't work, I may just pop in a replacement assembly. If anyone has one that will...
    7. Fixing Broken Tip Shifter - Need a Measurement

      So about a year ago, the plastic linkage connecting the shift knob to the shifter broke (an all-too-common problem, yes). I had the top half that broke off until stupid me accidentally sucked it up...

      New CEL: Codes 16804 and 00934

      After getting the new SAI pump in, I was driving CEL-free for about 2 or 3 weeks until earlier this week when that dreaded amber light came on. The only performance issue I'm experiencing isn't with...

      Agreed!

      Got mine from 034 Motorsports when I got a system lean code soon after buying my Jetta. Popped the hood and discovered the factory hoses were practically non-existent.

      I thought about it but everything I read said it was more expensive to do the manual swap than to drop in another 09A.

      Prices include shipping?

      I changed the oil on Sunday (the 6th) and it had a strong gas smell to it. I'm thinking bad injectors and/or FPR, so I'm interested in yours.

      Are these still for sale? I had a strong gas smell in my oil when I changed it this past Sunday and I wonder if it could be bad injectors. I figure at $15 for the set, it's cheaper than taking it to...
