    1. Now they've gone too far (new IIHS Top Safety Pick requirement)

      "Cornering Lights" that operate with the turn signals used to be very common on GM cars. My '85 C4 Corvette had them and so did my mom's '83 Oldsmobile. Newer cars already have a steering angle...
    2. TCL, show and tell your go to work horse truck

      My '97 C3500 Diesel dually has 260,000 miles on it, doesn't leave the driveway without towing or at least hauling something heavy and has been trouble free for a decade and a half. It will still get...

      Most unreliable car features

      The motorized trunk latch on older GM cars. Everyone I've ever known who had one had it fail, including the ones on my '87 Trans Am and my mom's '96 Cadillac. Neither one were very old at the time of...

      Sounds like a seriously bad wheel bearing. I'm assuming you have checked for loose or broken bolts? Something caught in the wheel, rotor or caliper? Bad mk4 wheel bearings usually are accompanied by...

      My guess is the relay is wired wrong. It's really pretty simple. A simple lighting relay has either four or five pins. One is constant power from the battery, two is ground, three is the input wire...

    9. Nuclear Invasion VI - Saturday Sept 7th - Lake Wylie, SC

      Wow! That first pic is a real blast from the past! That's Sara's beetle in the foreground and my GTI a couple of cars back. What year was that? 2008?
      If I can get new tires before the meet, we'll...

      Things are good. Still got the mk4. I lurk from time to time on here, but haven't really been too active in the VW scene for a long time. I've spent the last couple of years restoring my 1969...

      It's more tedious than difficult. I figured out removing the throttle body goves you a lot of extra room to work and saves some time, busted knuckles and four letter words.

      Brake light switch will kill the cruise control too. VAG-COM will show a code for whichever switch is the culprit.

      They were already worn out before you got started. A new set of bearings is in order.

      DRLs are really just low beam headlights on all the time. Not even at reduced power like some other makes, just full on low beams. Makes them eat headlight bulbs like candy.
