      MY experience using a shim- a spacer really - at the knuckle is:

      only to find 25 ft-lbs instead of 175...

      No the pulley shouldn't have any play in its bearings. It would be extremely noisy if it was the bearings.
      Cover rubbing against the belt maybe.

      Looks good ahead of the muffler.

      I can't tell if that pipe will fit in the exhaust tunnel on my Scirocco or not.

      Scirocco 16V version - N/A.

      From experience maybe you overtorqued the coolant flange bolts. 7.25 ft-lbs is easy to overdo.

      I found aluminum flanges in the yard to replace the pitted ones on my 1987, no problems.

      A new starter ruined the knock box?????

      Please triple check the (3) wires from the distributor to the knock box first. I even had one shorted out - no start no nothing.

      I have the sunroof mechanism from an mk2 Jetta. It only slides back and forth. I didn't get the panel itself, though.

      Thanks for the diagram.

      To find online - the best way is to search auto parts sites using the VW parts numbers shown.
      Sometimes a site like AutohausAZ will have the part, but is not listed under...

      It slipped my mind, I meant to point out that the 100mm drive flanges stick out farther than stock ACN 90mm drive flanges. That is the source of the issue with axle length.

      It is also true...

      Happen to have a ACN with O.E. 90mm joints, haven't even cleaned it off yet.
