      Thought this could be a helpful resource for anybody scrounging for parts If you're out yarding and see something post it up, maybe someone else can use it.

      If anyone goes to the Chandler Pick-n-Pull can you check the interior color of a car for me?

      On Row 15 there is supposed to be a 95 Audi A6. If somone could check the color of the interior it could save me from making a wasted drive up from Tucson.

      The majority of these cars has either Tan or Grey interior. Of course, I am looking for one with a Black interior.

      Anyone heading out - if you see a 90 -93 digifant cabriolet (usually has a clipper kit, large bumpers in rear and front and side skirts) that is a manual - please let me know. I need a cluster.

      There is a unmolested one at the yard next to ecology on 27th ave as of Sunday.

      Thanks for the heads up. Went out at 7 am this morning - and unfortunately didn't see what you saw.

      However, the other Ecology on Broadway and 32nd is now turning into an import only yard.

      4 or so mk3 jettas, a mk2 gli, a couple mk3 golfs, 2 early rabbits and 2 cabbies. We pulled a cluster, now to see if it works.

      When I was there a month ago they had about 7-8 asst'd Mk2's, a red Mk3 GTI sans motor (full leather interior & SS cat back Borla), white Mk3 Jetta GL, 1 Audi 100.
      The one one 27th Ave has a 1.8t B5.5 wagon, Mk2 Scirocco, B3 16v, a B4 VR, an Audi 80 & a 90, like 2 or so Mk3 4 cyl. Jetta's, 2 Audi GT Coupes, some aircooled Beetles too.

      The Pull-A-Part on Buckeye & 23rd Ave (?) has a 2.8 B4 A4, 2 B4- 1 VR / 1 Diesel, 1 B3, Mk4 Jetta 2.0 & a couple Mk3's if my memory serves...
      '90 Corrado |'92 Jetta 8v | '91 Golf 8v | '95 GTI | '98 Jetta VR6 |'04 Jetta 2.0 |'04.5 GLI |'92 Passat VR6

      Hit up both Ecology yards in PHX today (7/7)

      27th street has some German and Euro but not much. As mentioned before, a few cabbies, a couple MK3 Jettas, a couple Foxes, B3/B4 Passats, Audi GT Coupes. Most everything is stripped. Watch out for the pigeon ****!

      The one on Broadway is all foreign now and had a few MK2's (one golf and a couple Jettas), a few cabbies, a few MK3's (one Golf and a couple Jettas), Passats, random Audi's and a bunch of BMW E21's, E28's, and E30's. It's all in the south west corner.

      Enjoy!


      Also spotted a lowered MK2 Jetta with Colorado tags (and AZ temp) in the lot on Broadway. Anybody around here?

      Went to ecology on 36th and broadway. There are still some good parts to be had. Way more than I thought.

      For the B4 guys there is a B4 euro front bumper in pretty good shape

      Ha, we probably crossed paths.



      Also if anybody is out yarding I'm still on the hunt for a MK2 passenger side big door for 2-door cars.

      That looks like the other ecology off 27th. You can see the red water tower in one of the pics.

      Is the car you can barely see at the left side of this pic the "correct" green?

      I snapped this yesterday at the Ecology on Broadway. It is sitting in the "off limits" lot.

      went to a couple yesterday and not one MK4 anyone know of some mk4s in a junkyard

      the pull a part on buckeye the corrado is a 90 G60 someone did a vr swap into, it was green now blue. also several mk3 jettas a mk2 golf and a 2dr mk2 jetta and a mk1 cabby and a bay window bus that caught fire.

      the ecology on Broadway had at least 5 mk1 cabbies, 1 80 Rabbit, 1 81-84 rabbit, 2 or 3 mk2s and 3 or 4 mk3 jettas.

      the pick a part just east of ecology on Broadway has a pretty gutted new beetle and maybe 5 mk3 jettas and a mk1 cabby. they did how ever have a seat ibiza.( the only thing i took a pic of )
