      hey. is yours not connected too?
      i've got the front bumper off atm, so i got at it from the front. it sits directly under the battery. you might be able to get your arm at it from underneath. i'll have a look tomorrow. here's a pic of someones car, it's in that fender cavity in the bottom right hand corner. http://i20.photobucket.com/alb...8.jpg

      Well I had it with Julian today and we tried to balnk it off by squeezing the pipe but it didn't change so I am pretty sure it's ok.

      We even had the ECU to check for damage and also tried it with a spare working one, still no luck.

      I think it's gonna never idle (without the A/C on) proper so just learn to live with it or never stop. One of the two

      The time has come to sell my wagon, I have moved in to a townhouse and the car has been stored at my mums house in her carport. Circumstances have changed where she is unable to store the car for me anymore (She is getting married and moving house - Congrats mum!) and I don't have anywhere to store the car any more. So time to let it go for someone to enjoy it.

      The car has had the rust repaired in the floor pan. The body isn't completely straight, the major being a dent in the rear panel just near the rear lights as you can see in the pictures. The rubber seals aren't in the best condition.

      - Will come with 3 months ACT rego
      - 1600 twin port, nice strong engine
      - No gear box noise
      - Disc brakes up front. Drum brakes in the rear
      - 12 V
      - Swing axle rear suspension
      - Extractors
      - Salt n Pepper Interior

      Extras: Comes with mo (chrome lip on bonnet) and bamboo under dash shelf not installed Can supply a ratty roof rack if wanted.

      Car is located in Canberra.
      Price $4200ono
      Contact Liam on 0411 682 377 or email liam (at) swelldesign.com.au (without spaces and replace at with @... you know the drill)

      if you call this weekend 4/5/6 September I may not answer as I will be out watching the World Mountain Bike Championships.

      You left your cap on the aerial.

      So, new batteries (think I know the answer to this) am I better of just getting an NRMA number and saving any hassles, or trying to buy one at Repco when I go there tomorrow for some goodies.


    15. 10-11-2009 06:00 AM #50
      Start a poll. Only definitive way to find out the answer...

      I would try and get one from a battery shop. More range, better choices, better prices and you dont have to deal with an NRMA chump. Also if said battery goes wrong, you can take it back. With NRMA, you would have to wait for them to come out again....

      Hey Will, don't suppose you have a spare grille outer trim lying around? Y'know the red bit. DubSteve can sort me out with the single headlight grille, but my current grille doesn't have the outer metal trim, so I need to chase one up. I can get it OS, but the shipping fees sux0r...

      Hmm, battery is okay. I think the cold start valve is the next on the list.

      Buy yourself a multimeter as well.

      Did you drive it to work?


    27. 10-12-2009 06:55 PM #62
      Hmm, mk1 & mk2 memories.

      I think I have had every thing go worng you guys mention.

      Old cars are great, you buy it a new battery it's great for a day then the altenator dies, so it gets rebuilt, but then the belt slips and the mount bends/bolt strips so it never stays tight.

      It gets you stuck in Mittagong, then a month later Goulburn later on again in the snowies.

      There must be 1000's of people out there with MK1 bits, but glad you stumbled on the one you needed!

      I thought he had shut down. Good to know he hasnt been driven out of business. Another source for my steering rack.

      Nice Liam. Keep up the seek and replace efforts. The more you fix, the better it is...


    33. 10-14-2009 06:37 AM #68
      Brian has everything.........and it's always new parts. Feels good buying quality and hard to find bits.

      99% of my engine bay is from him........the rest is rust

      Yeah a bunch of good stuff on our GTI is from Brian. He's a funny old guy but he knows his stuff and rarely can't get what you need

    35. 10-14-2009 07:40 AM #70
      I remember calling him once regarding a part and mentioned I couldnt get it from VW Australia. He literally screamed at me down the phone line for about 2 minutes for not calling him first... the phone speaker was distorting... At least he is passionate...
