      Your best bet is to find a CE2 diesel tach cluster and swap the speedo out of the Carat into that cluster. The speedo will be the same and it will retain the speed sensor for the cruise control...

      Only reason I kind of like it is because the airbag isn't obnoxiously large.

      I don't like it enough to spend money having one sent from Europe though....

      Like I said there are a lot of random connectors under there that aren't necessarily used, it just depends on the equipment your car has. This might be one of those connectors.

      I don't have wiring diagrams for that year or engine, you might get a Bentley manual for your year and try and track down where that's supposed to go, if it goes anywhere.

      Not sure what the questions is, does that wire come from the alarm module?

      Some of those connectors are not used, just depends on the equipment the car has.

      I split the evap housing today and took a look at the B4 (134a) evaporator and there's a provision for the probe already in the side at exactly the point where the hole was in the old housing. I'll...

      Ditto with what izzo said, you need to do some investigation before you declare what the real problem is.

      However, the symptoms you describe with the condition of the oil do suggest that there's a...

      I don't think there's a lot of wiring for the system but since this was an AHU conversion and the original AC was shot and rotted out I was switching to the updated R134A system components which also...

      I always thought a lot of the 9A engine. It was never really embraced by a lot of people like the ABA was (if you can call it that...lol) but for the easiest drop-in swap out there the 9A is pretty...

      Thanks for the new information. I have a Mk3 AC harness but I don't really see how that will work because of the placement of the AC pressure switch. On the Mk3 it's down by the dryer, on the B3/4...

      There are a couple options. The ABA with the Fox cylinder head would be fine and although the block might be a little taller I don't think it's an issue with the hood unless you were to keep the ABA...

      Thanks for the advice. I've already managed to get replacement lines from a B4 but you're right, the lines at the dryer are a pita. My existing system was empty and the dryer rotted out so I assumed...

      You could be right. I was looking at the ABA B4 again today and noticed that it has the VW 2.0 upper intake manifold rather than the big VW intake that most B4 passat cars seem to have. That could...

      B3 AC conversion to B4 R134a

      Hey all
      I've searched trying to find anything on AC conversions that people might have done. I did find a thread link that was supposedly 'all you need to know' but the link was a 404 dead end.

      They're not completely worthless, yes there's the intake, but there's also the fact that the 2.0 shares cooling system with the TDI as well as suspension.

      There's a lot of good stuff on a B4 ABA...

      I've been into four B4 roofs this past week and never encountered one with that plastic block on the corner. I assume you mean the plastic bit in the center of your photo?
