      Ha! That's annoying, well I think the one in the alternator needs replacing as well, so not as upset. Part is ordered and will let you know.
    2. Voltage regulator definitely need replacing.. its on the way.

      Okay thank you that's super helpful.
      The voltage regulator is definitely worn, waiting for a new one in the mail. I had a new one arrive, but when I put it in one of the metal rods snapped and fell...

      I can hear it when I stand next to the p/s rear door. It's like a low-key buzzing sound so maybe that's just the pump then and a relief for now. There was a used one on ebay for 10 bucks which I...
    4. UPDATE: It's finally road-worthy! For now..

      Hey bluetoes and redfoxx,

      Again wanted to say thanks so much for your advice. The Fox is now running pretty well, speedo is fixed. (You were right just the cable came loose, the clip was still...

      1. Awesome, I'll definitely be looking into that, probably when the clutch finally gives.

      2. If you have photos explaining how to fix the sending unit, that would be tremendous as I haven't been...

      What do you mean new speedo, like grab a new cluster on the dash? Or like new cable/sensor at the wheel/trans (idk where it is)

      Also, I'm very tempted to swap in an Audi 4000 5-spd; which clutch...

      Okay, so I guess I need to just deal with the light. Interesting.

      Definitely good to know that the speedos are a weak point. Any recommended repair?
    8. Running much better, still has the red flashing light

      Hey bluetoes,

      I have great news and bad news. I got the new TT Magnaflow exhaust and sounds infinitely better. I dropped the fuel tank and it was so rusted I was surprised it was still running! I...
    9. Thank you! Definitely a work in progress

      Hey bluetoes591!

      Perfect, I actually just came across those exhausts and I'll probably get the alum. MagnaFlow TT pipe. Do you think Borla or Magnaflow sounds better?

      So during my shopping...

      car-part.com is my best friend

      Hey there,

      I've been looking for parts too, I think you're best off looking through junkyards using car-part . com

      Just looked up radiators and there seem to be plenty!

      Hope it helps.
    11. Trying to replace exhaust + other subtle issues

      Hi there everyone!

      I just bought myself a 1989 VW Fox GL 4-dr sedan (99k miles) and I have to admit this past week it's been awesome working on the car. However, I'm stuck in some places and I...
