      I don't own a 1.8t (but a 20 year old 2.0T ;) ) and I agree with your sentiments. However... when dealing with older vehicles, like I do, the coolant lines going to the oil cooler are suddenly...

      Can use a brass hammer/punch for whacking the front surface of the pulley also (downwards force) to pop the gear off. Same principle as tie-rod ends. I ended up using my air hammer from the back of...

      After everything going horribly wrong today, I managed to get my car up and running... after removing the timing belt 3 times to change the timing 3 times because the damn car wouldn't start!

      I've seen that writeup- it was actually pretty good, but in a MK1... a little bit different than what I'm doing but the basic concept is there.
      And I'd help you if I had time :P

      That looks like every timing belt I've seen on all vw's that I've ever owned. Scares the **** out of you on a diesel for first timers, then you realize "ahhh, German engineering! scaring the **** out...

      Checked it, window sash is "mal-aligned" . I re-adjusted the sash section with the 2 bolts to make it work for now. I need to pull the window and move the sash forward by about 8mm to properly fix...

      Back from Japan and back to my ever busy lifestyle. Today I got cranking again on the wagon and managed to get some stuff done and some stuff not done.

      Oh, I forgot to mention this very important piece of information.

      Yes. Technically speaking you need to change out the fuel tank because the filler neck is part of the tank and is different...

      It looks just like factory. Even though you are heating up the plastic, you are not actually "massaging" the plastic, unlike other products out there like Mothers Back to Black or Kiwi Shoe dye. With...

      Thanks man. I'm indecisive on doing anything euro on the car at this point. I'm more interested in the functionality... specifically getting the A/C set up and working (which is kind of hard as I'm...

      A good day today!
      Car is home- registered, insured, and new title coming with with the mode of power changed to "D" - the DMV people took a while to figure things out :laugh:

      So, I finally...

      Hey Simon! If I had know that, I would have totally hit you up, lol. I was at BF all day on saturday. I would have stayed after 5pm but i needed a ride home and my co-worker kindly gave me a lift.

      Made it to the shop late this morning. pulled the diesel motor from my corrado and got it in the Passat. Couldn't finish. All my friends flaked on me, so they're never getting any help from me ever...

      Yep. Keeping it all. You don't have to keep it all, but after doing this before on my Corrado, I decided that on this platform it is better to keep all the stock stuff rather than gut it out and use...

      I should be taking a few pictures. It's really not that hard. There is virtually no wiring needed, and the engine bolts right up. The only thing that needs to be added is a relay + correct temp...

      Yeah, its weird. There are 2 different length switches, but both use the same part number. It's quite odd... thankfully I had a used "long" style one at my work. This car is keeping ABS- my Corrado I...
