      Hmm, if you used to need to have the belt attached and all of a sudden now you don't, it sounds like it might be an issue with the relay? I don't know where the hell my Bentley went, so I can't...

      Pulling out the cluster is relatively simple and doesn't require taking the wheel off. The only real concern is that the headlight/hazard/defog switches need to be pulled out, and they need to be...

      Is being able to start the car without the seatbelt latched a new symptom? In both Foxes I've owned, this has been bypassed by the latch (wires shorted).
      If you used to need to connect the seatbelt...

      The brand / style. I'm not at a computer right now but I think I posted links to it in the post I quoted. I used #14s but i believe #13s should work. Also, about the filter-hardline hose, I'm pretty...

      As it turns out, it looks like these fittings are actually the stock ones, but with the crimped on hose removed. 5/16" hose fits on great with ABA clamps and no leaks yet. Use a 22mm wrench to...

      It doesn't sound like the clutch is actually slipping, and considering the previous owner, there's probably still a good amount of life left..

      Is the clutch difficult to depress at all, or is it...

      That is supposed to see atmospheric pressure. It routes to the back of the box to reduce the chance of something getting into the regulator and poking a hole in the diaphragm. You could rip the hose...

      Realistically, the Fox isn't the best candidate for aero mods (in stock form, we get pretty drag limited somewhere in the low-mid 90mphs). But yes, ecomodder.com would be a good bet for ideas. Like I...

      I duct-taped off my grill when I drove my first Fox cross country. The temp would creep up when going up long grades. Then I found out I was down two quarts of oil. Topped off and it was fine :)

      You can drill a hole in the valve cover, or what some people do is get an oil cap off one of the models of the New Beetle (gen1). It provides the vent that's otherwise missing from the valve cover.
