      Water in hatch again. I did replace the factory cluster f*ck set-up with clear vinyl tubing over a year ago. The tubing is still attached & there's a lot of water in the hose, so thinking clogged drain nipple.

      Cruise control hasn't been working and scanned the car to find the clutch switch was bad. Replaced the sucker and now it drives like a whole new car.

      the one tiny little part makes that much difference.

      tis the switch that tells the car that the clutch is depressed so the starter can do its thing....basically it is the interlock that stops you from starting the car while its still in gear

      Throttle response was greatly increased. Not like it all of the sudden it runs like a it has a turbo but before the switch it was just sluggish/heavy to get up to speed in first and second. Now it runs, I guess, like it's supposed to. To me it felt like a whole new car and nice to have cruise control again.



      EDIT: Clutch switch is the the green plunger right behind the pedal of the clutch. Right next to the BLS which was a common failure in our cars when they were new. VW recall.

      Did you open up the nipple holes to prevent any sticking? The sunroof tray has two open canals,
      that will overflow over the sides, if backed up...

      Will never own a car with a moonroof again. Nor convertible, since after owning a 1999 Mitsubishi
      Spyder GS-T and having the convert leak on a new car (then)

      Sounds like that would be a defective switch in the steering wheel, then, right?

      is it a micro switch? I was thinking fuse also.

      Not saying you're wrong, but why would there be a fuse between the wheel and the horn that doesn't effect the function of the horn itself?

      Oh, and SO excited because i'm getting the recall replacement on my ignition coils tomorrow. Hopefully it clears this damn O2 sensor glitch for once and for all. (And they have one of the new R's in stock, so i plan to test drive it while i wait. )

      There are 2 horns for dual tone, but I've removed one to fit an intercooler in my mk4. Check both wires on each as well as the switch or fuse like everyone else has said.

      I haven't touched anything since my initial look. I went back in last night & noticed the water level had receded & that there was sand & silt left behind. That's what's clogging it. I can either clear the sand & have it happen again, or open the nipple so rain makes the tubing self cleaning. I updated the old thread yesterday, & am going to take a picture in daylight. Last nights picture had flash bounce off the tubing obscuring the detail inside the tube.

      I know all about leaking tops. My other car is an M Roadster with a leak between the top & body where the butyl seal no longer works.

      that makes me think that the car had an invisible code thrown. one that you could only see with a reader and wouldnt throw the light on the dash. that will definitely make the car feel peppier and more responsive.

      I noticed the headliner in the mirror today. You should never notice the headliner in the mirror. The fabric is separating from the base at the back on the passenger side, but why wouldn't it? It's only doing what the pillar covers already did.

      Were your bushings ok? Or they needed to be replaced?

      Needs a new wheel bearing more than likely. Does it get louder when you turn in a certain direction?
