      Six Speed Shift Boot

      http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthread.php?4176712

      Getting the DSG knob off can be tricky, but it's not as bad as people say it is.



      To get the manual shifter bezel to clear the DSG shifter housing, some trimming is required.

      This is what the unaltered bezel looks like with the shift boot removed:



      DSG boot & bezel next to the six speed boot & bezel:



      You don't want to trim as far up as that gif shows because you will lose the locking point for the lower clips on the shift boot.

      Use a Dremel with a cutting wheel to cut from tab to tab on the lower portion of the bezel:



      After that, I did a test fit but it still wasn't enough to clear the shifter housing.




      I went back and trimmed a big chunk off the lower right side of the shifter bezel and it fit perfectly.

      Airbag Decal Removal



      Supplies Needed:
      - Isopropyl Rubbing alcohol (the stronger, the better)
      - Paper towels
      - Patience

      1. Grab some paper towels.

      2. Fold a sheet of paper towel so that it fits over each sticker.

      3. Drench the paper towel in rubbing alcohol.

      4. Lay it over the sticker and dab it until you can see the sticker through the paper towel.

      5. Let it soak for 10 minutes.

      6. Remove the paper towel and slowly peel the sticker off.

      7. Repeat for the other three stickers. You will have to re-soak the paper towel in alcohol each time.

      Removing the stickers is basically like the reverse process of applying decals to model cars where you soak the sticker and then apply it.

      Disclaimer: I assume no responsibility for any faults from doing this.

      The area underneath the stickers will not match the visors perfectly either. Especially on older cars where fading may have occurred.

      Removing A Stripped OE Wheel Lock

      A while back a good buddy of mine used an impact wrench to tighten down my wheel bolts.

      Long story short, I went to remove them with a breaker bar and the teeth inside the wheel lock stripped right out.

      The easy, cheap and ghetto way to get the wheel lock out is as follows.



      Supplies Needed:
      - 19mm Socket
      - BFH (Big Friggin' Hammer)
      - Breaker Bar
      - Patience

      Take your 19mm socket and align it with the wheel lock. Slowly and carefully start to hammer the 19mm socket onto the wheel lock.

      It will take a few tries.

      Once the socket is secure on the wheel, take your breaker bar and the handle of a jack and carefully loosen it.

      My jack handle unscrews into two separate pieces so we used that for extra leverage.

      Disclaimer: This will not always work and you will most likely loose your 19mm socket as a result. Mine is still sitting in my tool box with the wheel lock stuck in it.

      The R has, more or less, become my daily driver for the time being.



      I've found that if you throw it in D and take it easy, it's not horrible on gas.
