      As best I remember....
      Vanagon
      B2 Quantum (Passat, to most of ROF) wagon.

      IIRC, the B3 Passat Syncro wasn't sold in the U.S. - only Canada.
      And, there was (again, IIRC) a bit of a gap...

      The brown wire. Pin is labeled "31."

      FYI: the only thing on the headlight switch that needs a ground is the pilot light (switch backlight, is on when the key is ON.)

      BF Goodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S are what I have on mine (installed last spring.)
      I likey. Sticky, predictable at their (rather high) limit, work well in rain.

      I had the opportunity to do that in my QSW a couple of weeks ago. Locked the diffs, and just went silly. :laugh:
      Lord, how much snow did I pack into the wheels... and the suspension.....

      You bought vented rotors, and solid-rotor pads, it sounds like.
      Buy pads for a late (1992) Cabriolet, or (IIRC) an 84 Rabbit GTI. They'll be the same metal backing plate, but with slightly...

      It's not so much "cooling the battery", as it is "protecting the battery from the engine compartment heat."
      Generally, the battery will live a longer life if it isn't constantly being cooked in a...

      There are three wires in the "low beam" plug:
      Lo
      Hi
      Ground.

      Lo wire triggers lo beam relay; hi wire triggers hi relay.

      No they don't....
      The lock (on an auto trans car, at least) is set up so that you can't lock the steering column unless the transmission is in Park, yes.

      Nothing to bridge - just pretend that the factory hi-beam plugs don't exist.
      On the factory low-beam plugs:
      Brown = ground
      Yellow = mellow = lo beam.

      Wiring is simple enough. And, relaying the lights is definitely the right way to fix them.

      The 9A (2.0 16v) is dimensionally identical (on the outside) to the PL (1.8 16v.) It fits just the same.
      But, you'd need to source an intake for a Scirocco 16v. All of the 9A-equipped cars were...

      But, if you do want to run stock-size rubber, there are at least still some decent tires to be had.

      The boot failed. Grease got out; dirt, etc. got in. Joint is damaged as a result.
      Nothing nefarious about it - it just happens.

      Fresh grease isn't going to fix it - the damage is done. ...

      There's a procedure (outlined in the Bentley) for locking the cable adjuster before removing it from the transmission. Same for readjusting it.
      That said, if you remove...

      If I recall right, you'll want the 020 198 025 8V LW kit.

      I'd agree with the diagnosis - the trans simply has just enough wear in it, that it can't consistently depress the switch fully.

      My Quantum got into the same condition (different trans, "simple...
