      No it's not just you.
      It's been like this since they migrated to this new software.
      It's like that for basically every archived Mod/DIY virtually everywhere on this site.

      It sucks because vortex is so so huge, that all the Google searches for VW Mods/DIY are driving you to broken URLs or websites that are eventually linking to (our now broken) vortex URLs

      I'd like to think that this hasn't gone unnoticed by the site administrators and that they're working on it.
      Cuz it would be a true tragedy were this issue not remedied - that's a ton of knowledge base to lose.

      Found a good DIY for replacing the antenna on a MKIV. The only note I have to add to this DIY is that the bolt for me (2004.5 GLI) is actually 22mm and NOT 24mm.

      My friend bought a 10,000$ machine used for home interior so he doesn't have to pay someone to clean the hundreds of properties he owns and manages. This machine has the mini wand used for stairs but can be used for vehicle interiors as well. If you live near the 17870 area and need your interior cleaned, hit me up. 570-706-5188 I believe it's 50$ for the seats and 50$ for the carpets including trunk or hatch.
      Or, if you need your home or apartment done I can get you a price for that also.

      Hello,
      Still have that link you removed? You can do what I have done on many occasions when a site no longer exists. Use the Internet Archive WayBackMachine to browse old web pages of websites that aren't around anymore. Once you find the "How to..." page you want, copy the URL from the address bar & past it back into your thread as the link. Conversely, if the content on the page you want (images, text, etc.) is not copy written, then download the resources from that page & upload the info into this forum. If that sounds confusing, shoot me the removed link & I'll be more than happy to compile the info & report back.

      WayBackMachine URL: https://archive.org/web/

      Regards,
      Old School Fool.

      Back when I worked as a mechanic we had spray can stuff, think it was called "Hi-Tack", that we used to glue down carpet and other trim pieces.
      I cannot find it on the internet.
      Can anyone point me in the right direction to find something to glue my carpeting back into the car?

      Hey guys, heres a question I couldn't find the answer to. How in the world do you remove these on a mk6 Vw Golf?

      Trying to remove it to have a Subwoofer sit flush. Its the rear hook in the trunk of my car.

    20. 03-04-2014 08:37 PM #55
      Anyone? I would force it off but I don't wanna break it.

      Holy Hi Res pic! Just break it off. JK! It might be held on by a screw fastener from behind or it slides in a short slot before some sort of tab snaps into place. Just guessing though. I really don't remember to be honest. gettin' old. lol...

      Well, you can always do what I've done in my younger days. When it seemed the only way to get something off was to break it off, I would just go down to the VW dealer & ask the guy at the parts counter if they have the part & can you see it. Tell him you can't figure out how to remove it without breaking it. They've always been cool & told me how & if there's a need for any special tools. Other option is Pick-A-Part. You can get a bit more aggressive removing it there rather than take a chance messing up your own car. You'll either break it or have a decent spare, but at least you'll know how it's held on. GL!
