      I only bought one Raxle and paid around $400. Marty would have given me a pretty good deal if I bought two ($700 I think), but cash flow was a problem.

      I'm just a n00b, but I think the axles are...

      You're a jerk. Why did you mention hanging stuff from the tow hook? You know you just started a trend of hanging truck balls from the tow hook?! Oh wait. That sounds kinda cool. Never mind :/

      It depends on what year vehicle you have, I assume. If it doesn't, then you're limited regardless. I have 2004.5 GLI and I cannot get a new genuine VW part that definitely fits. You can get a reman...

      Rocker panel moulding repair

      The moulding on the rocker panel is separating from the body (2004 Jetta GLI 1.8T). Worse comes to worse, I can go back to the shop that f'ed it up and have them fix it (should be under warranty),...

      I didn't see the bottom foam at Euro Image Tuning, unless it is included with back, but that would be great. VW wants too much $$.

      Otherwise, I had the same problem and went to a craft store....

      I have the same problem ever since my car was hit head on. Since then I have replaced struts and all associated hardware. I've also replaced control arm bushings, tie rod ends, and ball joints (I...

      I'd be interested in your results on this. I have a 2004.5 manual 6 that needed an axle. I contacted GAP and they hadn't experienced my situation yet, but said that based on measurements the Beetle S...

      Well, I've only had my Raxle for 1K, but there has to be something said about someone who can provide an axle when no one else can. I couldn't find any axles for my 2004.5 GLI other than reman from...

      I'm just a noob, but I recently replaced my dipstick as well. They snap into place and they're easy to break, which means they pretty much "snap" off. The bottom of the tube is split in order to snap...

      Any updates to this? I have the same problem. My cluster is totally fine except for the center red computer display. It used to have good days and bad days, but coincidentally or not, after I...

      Unfortunately, I am a 'monkey see, monkey do' mechanic. So I could do that, but would have no idea what it did to my car, its performance, or how to avoid state inspection issues. I would love to...

      Good thing for small penises I guess. I ended up using a small socket on a bit driver to stretch out the hose. Worked pretty well. You just have to make sure not to go too far in or the socket pops...

      Yeah, it turns out I had to drive it for a bit. Maybe 20 mph is the magic number or somewhere around there, but as soon as I took it out for a real spin the light went out. Has not reappeared since.

      Yeah, it looks like I have the heartbreaker scenario. Mental note: always replace the thermostat if you already have access.

      I replaced the CTS first and that had a nominal effect, but the code...

      The damage was 'fixed' by the repair shop after the accident. I noticed the popping sound ever since then. I had gone on the forums before and people were suggesting it was the outer joint.

    16. What's causing this popping and how bad is it?

      A couple years back my car was hit on the driver's quarter panel and bounced into the curb. 9K of repairs later, almost every time I enter/exit my driveway I hear a singular loud pop as I turn my...
    17. Threw P2181, but before I fixed, it fixed itself???

      I was going to troubleshoot the P2181 starting with CTS, but since I read the code 2 days ago, I haven't had any symptoms or codes. Lucky or calm before the storm?

    19. Gap between strut stop plate and suspension turret??

      Just as the title says, I'm wondering if the gap I'm noticing is normal. Of course you never take pictures of the right thing before you start a job and I don't remember precisely what it looked like...

      Axle bolt torque on MKIV

      I have a 2004 GLI 1.8T with allen style axle bolt. I have a Haynes, Bentleys, and 1 other source and they all give different figures for torque. 300Nm(221ft/lb), 250Nm(184ft/lb), and 190Nm(140ft/lb)...
