      i have a question...my 1990 vw gti 8 valve has a leak on the passenger side right against the door panel under the dash. i have traced it to some sort of vent that is on the top left end of the hood. when i purchased the car, there was a window screen there which led me to believe it was rigged lol, but what is missing there and whats is causing so much water to end up on the passenger side floor?????
      thanks nolan

      Hey nolan, I am not a mk2 expert, but most VW's have a fresh air intake at that point. the screen was likely replacing the raised cover that prevents water from entering the heater box. I would start by checking under that part of the windshield. Then you will probably see where the water is entering the car.

      Hi
      Damaged the upper air vent trim on my Golf GTI MK V. Managed to buy a new one but am having difficulty removing the hazard light button and airbag warning light from the old unit.
      Do they just unclip (with a bit of force) of are special tools required?
      Thanks for any help.

      I have a 98 Jetta GLS and my turn signal (either side) is stuck. the light comes on, but it doesn't blink. I can see that the outside lights come on and stay on as well. any suggestions?

      beauty is in the eye of the beholder and quotes like that are funny unless they hit close to home its a hazzard of a primarily male dominated hobby and site but dont worry I bet there are some swishes around who fit in there too. Its like T.V. dont like the show dont gripe change channels. just my .02

      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.
