      Windshield washer not spraying

      My windshield washer is not spraying the front windshield. It stopped spraying about a week ago but the wipers still work. I took the pump out of the tank and connected it to a 12V jumpstart battery...

      I have air flow again. :D Took a few hours, scrapped my hand a bit getting it in the dash opening but I am happy. I still don't have a/c but at least having air flow from the vents even when it's...

      An hour or so later after some prodding it finally popped off. Note: put a piece of paper or cardboard in the opening under the control. That way when the clip pops off, it doesn't fall down the...

      The trick now is figuring out how to get that blue cable unclipped from the control block. I'm going to try and borrow a Bentley manual provided it actually shows how to remove that cabled part.

      do you remember if that blue cable pulled out through the front opening enough to let you disconnect it outside of the dash? :confused: Or did you have to do it while it was still inside, which seems...

      Part Arrived = Now Trying to Replace

      The new part arrived. Taking off the face plates, easy. Getting the radio out of the way, easy. Getting that blue actuation cable to disconnect from the controls, pain in the butt. So far haven't be...

      The part is on order. ECS says it will ship early next week. Called a local repair/parts place that handles VW's and they said a used unit would be about $45. So The $16 I'm spending to get this part...

      I only have one nipple still remaining. The tricky part will be getting the broken nipples out of the vacuum tubes. Some good small needle nose and glasses will help.

      That sure looks like the part. At ECS website, in the fourth picture you can see those five long black nipples. Essentially those are the pieces that have broken off, except the upper left one. The...

      No Air From Center Vent on my '87 GTi

      The vent control switch moves but does not allow air to flow to the floor or vents, only the defrost mode. However I think I know what's wrong but don't know how to fix it. I removed my radio and...

      I haven't done a cleaning on the throttle body yet. Maybe that will help.

      The weird thing about all this is the car runs great otherwise. Has more zip and better gas mileage and smoother...

      I didn't do the work myself. Would be nice to be that talented but not in this case. I will ask the mechanic and mention the point about both the transfer pump and idle specs. Thanks.

      I have a fresh full tank so it's not the transfer pump. It's been suggested I probably still have a vacuum leak. I need a schematic of all the tubing that could possibly have a leak and start...
    16. Engine almost stalls when engaging clutch and coming to a stop

      While driving car is fine. But when i get ready to stop and depress the clutch, the engine will drop down as low as 400-500 rpm's, sputter a moment, then come back up to idle around 950 or so. A...

      I'm not that mechanically inclined to do it myself. But I did ask them recently to give me their best bottom price on the engine change. The person I talked with has to talk with the owner. Hopefully...

      I was thinking if I really do want to put a new motor in, it should have some oomph. Like a VR-6, or a 1.8T, or something with more than the original 100 ponies it came with. You guys are right on...
    19. Bearings gone. Need a new engine. Do I rebuild or install a fresh 2.0 Liter engine?

      My 1.8L 8-valve GTi just turned 244,000 miles. And the oil alert light/buzzer came on and did not stop buzzing. Had my local VW shop look at it and they say the bearings are pretty much shot. Won't...

      The engine the shop is proposing is brand new. Was close-out inventory the shop owner bought a while back. So maybe I can negotiate a better price since it's been sitting for a while. But it...
