price drop $700 :eek:
Looked quite similar, perhaps worse. I just cleaned it up as carefully as possible and figured all is well. Actually i did install a permanent port on my intake in case i want to inject seafoam or...
in my case it was a boot problem. Moisture got in past the boot and caused the output shaft to corrode. Boot health is critical!
I've taken mine apart and have the seal kit. dis-assembly is not outrageous except for one part. I can't remove the wiper seal deep in the tube for the driver side of things. I've completely...
I heard the same story from VW, no replacements in the works, each dealership is backordered. I haven't been able to locate a rebuild rack, only used.
i'll take the steering rack
did the steering rack go? if not i'm interested
Seller informed me the steering rack is sold.
I just overnighted a rack from carsteering.com. The rack they sent is incorrect. I measured one turn between them both and the rack they sent has .35" shorter throw, oh yea and tiny golf tie rod...
Purchased September 2010 used
Sent in for rebuild at KW RMA#5566 June 2013 $700

We all know the many threads describing the MAF # F 00C 262 032 interchangeability between platforms. I believe it's also compatible in the 24v vr6. I have a r32, was trying to diagnose a issue and...
As i have found a solution i want to document it for future usefulness. Here is the series of events in order:
1) new chains, guides, injectors, clutch.
2) drove home from shop, car subtlety cuts...
Really cool overlay, how did you do that?
I like the port length theory. The gunk was serous, I'm glad i got to clean it. Ready for another 125K i suppose.
I recently replaced injectors while doing some other work on the car. With the manifold off, it was clear to see that the intake ports for cylinders 2, 4, and 6 were very dirty. ports 1, 3, 5 were...
Thanks for the reply. I'll check that when i get home. Also a time ago you urged me to replace my MAF because of the K&N. Well, i'm picking one up at VW on the way home also.
