Welcome to the new Do-It-Yourself / Frequently Asked Questions & Resources Guide!
" The MarkIV Forum Essentials " (under construction...)
In case you're new, this thread is a massive compilation of this forums most essential material.
It will serve as your reference point for common topics & discussion, detailed step-by-step
tutorials, technical information, and other great resources that you'll need during your stay.
For the unadjusted don't worry - the old thread is still there. But I think you'll find this
reorganized and fully reformatted version allows for much better browsing and simpler
searching. With dead links removed and improved content, it also includes a couple
Video DIYs that offer a pleasant alternative to the traditional typed tutorial.
( To submit tutorials, information, suggestions, or errors ... )
While great effort is taken to categorize everything as practically as possible, keep in mind
many topics cross multiple classifications and may be useful in various scenarios.
If you already know what you're looking for you can search for it by pressing Control + F.
Can't find it? Try again using a synonymous term, ("door lock" v. "door latch")
or a different variation of the same keyword. ("rearview" vs "rear-view")
Don't forget many DIYs cover removal & re-installation of a whole series of parts,
so if you don't see a specific link to say, remove the a-pillar trim,
remember that is a procedure found in the headliner remove & reinstall how-to.
Last but not least, visit the MarkIV sister forums: The 3/2/G and .:R32 Forum,
in addition to the Technical Forums for further discussion & information
on everything from bodywork through lighting to engine & transmission tech.
