      Well I gave up on the rear wiper motor. Cheapest price I can get one for "new" is $140.00

      Everyone one keeps braking here.




      I'm going to try this

      http://www.vwgolf.net.au/showthread....elete-MKV-Golf

      Part my cost was $17.00

      Anyone else have any other idea's if this doesn't work?

      I'm am trying to be cheap about this one.

      I might take you up on that depending on how the honda plug works.

      You got some pics of the lower threaded area. What the 22mm nut goes on

      A screw / washer / lock tight and an extra grommet from another lid done.







      I got the rears on





      I need to order some 10's for up front. I have a pair of 8, 12, 15's mm but of course not size I need.

      Still trying to figure out my fan problem I think I'm going to have to pull the wiring and start over.

      I'd throw the 8s in the rear and the 12s in the front.

      Rears are bolted right up. Fronts I got 15's on them just to get them where they are at. I just got done looking at some 1 1/2 inch lips for the front. I'm thinking I'm gonna do them since the fronts are WAY to small on this car.

      ditch the mk3 style thermo-time switch in the radiator and get an early style.

      lik dis



      one terminal is 12v in
      the next terminal is "low speed" 12v out
      the third terminal is "hi speed" 12v out

      easy. peasy. japanese-y

      I got a brand new mk3 style one. I think I'm gonna bite the bullet and pull it all out and start over.

      the mk3 and the earlier sxtyle switches work differently, thats what I'm telling you. a stand alone fan harness is much easier with the early style thermo time switch
