      The AAZ was a Canada only thing so that's why there are so few of them in circulation.

      Bear in mind that the turbo cars and hydro engines require a different oil pump (higher volume) so you should...

      I'm not sure I know what a Mk3 Passat TDI is, but if it was in fact a Passat TDI (as in B4) then if you had problems gaining or maintaining speed there's something wrong with the car. Then again if...

      I'll look around but don't hold your breath. Seems the last one I had I used when I converted my 65 amp Golf D (with dealer installed AC) to 90 amp.

      ^^^ what he said.

      The decoupler pulley is just another name for a clutched alternator pulley. It doesn't engage immediately, it slips a little and brings the alternator up to speed gradually.

      Where was the kink in the window channel? I had one in the front passenger door just behind the mirror, no idea how it got there, then again I haven't owned it a year yet and the PO might have done...

      Not to beleaguer a zombie post but one of the pp is more on target.

      15" Le Cas wheels were Passat G60 Syncro only (but could be added to any Passat at the dealership...like all VW wheels).

      Ditto what others have said. I made the mistake of moving mine out and back into the garage without axles and I think I did in one of the bearings...dunno yet but it feels like it.

      Power windows in the 1990 B3 have a 20A fuse above the fuse box in a separate fuse holder, I think that's true in 1991 too, but if you have a VR car it's probably different.

      The control relay for...

      Don't know what to tell you to do. Either you destroy the door panel getting in there to get it unlocked or try fishing around with a wire hoping to find the tab and pull up on it.

      And you can't...

      Generally that's the case. I've seen this happen before where the outside handle broke and even when unlocked it couldn't be opened by the inside pull rod.

      Make sure the door is unlocked, hold the...

      I'd convert to non-abs if you can find the stuff, a lot less pain and suffering. With any JY system you never know if that was shot when it went there.

      I will say though that if you want to keep...

      You'll have to get JY guide tubes, VW has NLA on those. The cables are pretty cheap no matter where you go.

      No, the B4 switched all models to the Plus suspension upper strut mount / bearing so the springs changed. As for the rears, the B3 sedan rear springs were by themselves, they don't technically fit...

      Yep, I was wrong, the wiring for the fogs is there no matter which model you get, the outside air temp harness is not, only if you order MFA option. They plugged them into the back of the reflector...
