      Thanks.

      Nope, it doesn't snow in the Bay Area. While it regularly gets down into the upper 20's and low 30's at night, we might get a light dusting once but that's it.

      Not afraid, just don't feel comfortable spraying water onto the various exposed electrical connectors of the engine and crevices where water pools and can't be reached to blow it out - whether it's a...

      Man, spraying water onto the entire engine like that always makes me cringe. Do you typically spray the entire engine or is it on a case by case basis?

      Copper anti-seize? Is that something that seems to work or is that something recommended by poly bushing manufacturers? The last thing I want to do is go through all the work of replacing the...

      I've had good luck with both Blue Coral and Tuff Stuff. I think a lot of mild cleaners should work. The key is not saturating the headliner, rather apply product to your MF towel not directly to the...

      There's no TSB I'm aware of for a suspension squeak in a 2008 Jetta (I own a '08.5 WE myself). Check your bushings. It's the easiest and most simple check/fix.
