      The easiest way to remove DRL's (Daytime Running Lights), is to simply cut the wire for pin #15 (yellow wire).
      edit: this is on the connector to the back of the headlight switch. If you don't want to cut it, simply cover the pin with electrical tape.

      A mk4 cabrio (99+) guage cluster works exactally the same as any other obdII cluster (except the vr6). Thus the swap is the same as if you had a 97 gti 2.0 cluster.

      left hand door handles will work on the right of your car and the same is for the reverse. (outer door handles). this is important if you want your handles to look new again, just swap them from left to right. if you have a 98+ then you only have a key hole in your drivers door so that isn't your best option for the drivers door.

      If you want to take off your golf/gti rear glass spoiler, pop your trunk and there are 3 nuts to remove at the top of the glass. Once off just pull hard at the spoiler will come off, then you will have to remove the goo and fill the holes. I used black calking to fill the holes in mine, works great and looks better than caps. [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      edit: if your 3rd brake light is in the spoiler then you can get pulled over. a center brake light has been a US standard sence 1986. so this would be for offroad uses only for 96 and earlier models.

      another way to eliminate DRLs (daytime running lights) is to put tape over the TFL pin on the back of the headlight switch. this method will not diable the "BRAKE" light below the speedometer.
      1) pop off the plastic piece to the left of the headlight switch with a screwdriver
      2) reach in the hole and feel for the tab on the top left of the headlight switch unit. push that tab and pull out on the swtich unit at the same time.
      3) remove the plug from the swtich.
      4) look at the chart on the back of the switch to locate the TFL pin. cut a piece of electrical tape and put it over the pin
      5) reassemble and enjoy!

      Here is the link to my Switchblade how-to website.
      Just some quick answers to common questions about the switchblade:
      Q. Where can I get a switchblade key?
      A. There are tons of them available on eBay or if your rich you can get them from the dealer.
      Q. Can I send you my switchblade key and have you modify it and send it back to me?
      A. Sorry, i don't readily have these tools available to me anymore at this time.
      Q. Can the buttons be programmed to work with my MkIII keyless entry system?
      A.The MkIII and MkIV use different electronics. The remotes are currently not compatible with the MkIII keyless entry system.
      Q. Can the electronics be modified to work? Can I just swap the guts of the remotes?
      A.This all depends on your skill..i guess it could be done but you would most likely have to start out with a blank PCB board and begin soldering all of the components onto it. I suck at soldering..so I cannot do it for you.
      Q. Will this work for other cars besides the MkIII? IE: MkII, MkI...etc
      A.I don't see why not. As long as you cut away enough material to fit the key into the switchblade than it should work. Remember the key can only be so long though. There must be enough room for it to fold back into the switchblade
      This FAQ for the switchblade will be updated as soon as I think of more questions that I usually get asked. Good luck!
      Suggestion #1 from Cabrio1.8T
      To get the roll pin out, I went to the mall to one of the watch kiosks where they resize watches. They did it for free. For those who do not have a tiny drill bit, use the dremel to put a notch do the key to hold it in.
      Very good ideas. Thanks Cabrio 1.8T

      Fixing Your Non-clip-on Door Moldings
      If your door moldings are starting to come off, you can remove them with a heatgun/hairdryer and some rope. Use the heatgun to warm up the tape that's holding it on, then use the rope to "saw" the molding off, or just pull it off with your hands.
      Make sure you clean off all the adhesive from the back of the molding, as well as the surface of the door. After peeling off all the adhesive (Goo-Gone works well) make sure both surfaces are extra clean with rubbing alcohol.
      Use 3M VHB (Very High Bond) double stick tape. It's sold in small rolls, it's about 1/2" wide and has red backing. The tape itself is grey-ish in color. Apply two strips of the tape to the back side of the molding (top and bottom) and then stick your molding back into the door. It wouldn't hurt to heat up the tape with your hairdryer before sticking it on. It's a good idea to have a friend help you line up the molding straight against the door. If you cleaned everything as well as you should have, this will be as good as the factory application.
      If you don't want to deal with all of this mess, simply pull off your moldings as mentioned, and buy the clip-on molding from someone, Potter, for example.

      Removing Factory Sideskirts (all models except Cabrio)
      The factory sideskirts are held in with about 6 screws that go underneath the skirts. They are philip's head screws, and they attach the skirt to a little strip of metal that hangs down from underneath the car.
      After removing the screws underneath, you will have to remove the rivets that are on either end, in the wheels wells. Either use a drill to take them out, or you can use a hammer/chisel to break off the head, and pop out the lower piece.
      Finally, after all screws/rivets are removed, the skirts will peel off from the car, after which you will have to remove the adhesive. I recommend Spray-On Goo Gone, but any adhesive remover will work. Make sure you get all of it off, and then polish/wax the paint that is exposed underneath, as it has not seen the outside since the car was built.

      Debadging
      All factory badges on A3 Volkswagens are held on with double stick tape, except the center mounted grille badge, which is held on with clips. To remove the factory badging, heat up the adhesive with a heatgun/hairdryer, and use dental floss/fishing line to "saw" off the badge. Then use adhesive remover to get rid of the gunk that's remaining on the car. Make sure to polish/wax the newly exposed paint.
      Also, although the center rear "VW" badge is held on with double stick tape, it is placed in a recess in the trunk/hatch, so make note of this before trying to remove it. It will not look good if you remove the badge, and then leave it like that.
      Any non-factory badges (dealer, repair shop, etc) I can't account for.
      [edit]: I've just been informed that early Mk3's, specifically 1994 may have small clips that hold in the rear badges, so you may want to check for that if you're going to debadge the rear. Thanks to enos for the info.

      Changing Spark Plugs on a 2.0
      Tools: VW Plug Wire puller or a pair of long needle nose pliers. Spark plug socket. Socket wrench. 6" extension and u-joint adapter (not required but it helps). Small brush or compressed air source. Anti-sieze compound
      The Procedure
      1. Note where all your plug wires go before removing them. Write it down, I'll wait... Remove plug wires. Be careful if using needle nose pliers. ONLY grab the metal shield.
      2. Brush or blow away any dirt that has collected around the plugs. Remove plugs. The fuel injectors can be removed for more clearance, but it is not required.
      3. Gap your new spark plugs and put a little anti-sieze compound on the threads and tighten the plugs down.
      4. Reinstall the spark plug wires and start the car (put some dielectric grease in the plug boots)
      You're done (and you didn't have to remove the manifold)

      VR6 Throttle body coolant line bypass,
      use a 3/8" barbed union to tee off the coolant lines that run into the throttle body, no more hot coolant heating up the intake charge.

      My steering wheel is making a scratchy or gritty noise when I turn the wheel...what's going on?
      quote:
      yes exactly....it sounds just like sand paper on plastic!
      It's a combination of shavings from the horn contact (net enough lubricant or grease) and dust and dirt. If you feel confident in taking off the wheel...clean off the dust and dirt and shavings, and grease the horn contact and the ring behind the steering wheel with a light coat of 3M Dielectric Tune-Up Grease (part no. 051135-08770). I got mine at the dealer for maybe $5.00 This should clear up that problem at least until it's time for another greasing and cleaning.

      Cheap tail light tinting or smoking
      Use 1/8" black pinstripe tape (available in most auto parts stores, I got mine at either PepBoys or Kragen) and tape over the area of the tail light you want smoked. With a steady hand and even spacing...you can simulate the look of what the factory does on it's GTI smoked tail lights. I did this on the top half of my GTI lights to make the orange signals less orange and also to the lower half of my clear tails now to make the bottom look more smoked red.

      Mk3 Cigarette Lighter fix
      Cigarette lighter not working and you checked all your fuses? Did you really check all of them? There is another sneaky fuse on top of the fuse box under black electrical tape. Drop the fuse box down. Remove the electrical tape and there is a 15 amp fuse there. Replace it with a new one and retape it to secure the fuse (it's kinda loose in the socket).

      Can I see an ABD Big-Bore Intake / or is it worth it?
      Here's my standard repsonse when these topics come up. It was discussed recently on 10/28/2002:

      It makes the throttle response snappier and the air flows better through the midrange and top end. If you expect to see huge gains on a dyno printout, it's not going to happen. But if you want to help the overall picture of tuning your intake, along with a cam and other stuff to let your motor breathe better, then it does help. The sum of all your tuning parts are what's going to make you power, not just a couple pieces here and there.
      Many people also have fitment issues as the intake sits too close to the shock tower. I easily remedied the situation by apoxying a small rubber foot where the intake meets the tower...viola! No more rattling.
      I like mine...don't think it's worthless at all.

      Headers and exhaust systems 2.5" diameter and larger are NOT too big for properly tuned 2.0L 8v motors and do NOT take away your torque. This is Vortex myth.
      It actually allows good flow past 3,000rpm in conjunction with an intake, cam, cam gear and chip. Some of the stronger 2.0L's on here have 2.5" exhausts and/or headers and aren't lacking in torque or power.
      It does make the exhaust tone very deep and bassy. The absence of quality mufflers are what make the exhaust noisy, not diameter. Diameter effects tone, not volume. I have a 2.8" exhaust, it has 3 straight-thru mufflers to keep it quiet (forward, center suitcase and rear), but it still let's itself be heard at WOT. I have plenty of low end torque and great gains throughout the powerband.

      What headers are available for the Mk3 2.0L 8v?
      This topic seems to comes up all the time. I am still hunting for either better shots or from manufacturers I am missing, like Toucan Industries/Ractive or a nicer looking Brospeed/Bosal unit than the used rusty one from eBay. If you guys have any others, please contact me at: domozitolk@earthlink.net or IM me here on Vortex. I am compiling these for my website.
      As a general rule when choosing a header, the 4-2-1 header is good for midrange and topend gains, while the 4-1 header are good for topend gains only.
      Oh well...here they are:
      Brospeed 8v

      COX Motorsport 8v header (Japan)

      Hartmann Motorsport 8v

      Neuspeed 8v

      OBX Racing Sport 8v

      Oettinger 16v (but Mk3 8v is listed in ad)

      S&S 8v

      Supersprint 8v

      The easiest way to disconnet the day time running lights is to pull down the fuse box by pushing back the 2 white retainers on each side. then lifting the fuse box up and out of the way. then look behing the fuse box and youll see on single pin connector its a yellow wire just unplug it and no more Daytime running lights. it takes 15 minutes tops and is reversible at anytime by just plugging the wire back together. this is far better then any cutting.

      Programming Keyless Entry Remotes
      1. Put your spare key into the ignition and put it onto the ON position, DONT start the car
      2. Close your door. In the drivers side, turn the key to the left (unlock
      position) and hold it.
      3. It will beep 3 times. Let go to the key so it sits in the lock.
      4. With each of your new remotes, separately, press the unlock button, each
      button will cause a "HONK"
      5. Turn the key to the left again until it beeps.
      6. PROGRAMMED
