      IIRC it is not actually part of the heater core, it's just a fitting to get the vacuum passed through the firewall for the blend doors.

      This is my thought, as well. I had one that had come off the sunroof in one of my e46 BMWs and the headliner was dry, but there was a huge puddle on the pass front floor.

      I've seen factory parts from other vehicles used to retrofit, but this was using an electric over hydraulics system vs the engine driven hydraulic system. IIRC it was using either a Toyota or a...

      I'm with Butcher that you're probably hearing the frequency valve buzzing. Located on the driver's side right by the strut tower.

      Excessively worn bearings will cause a loose fit. Bad bearings that have gaulled will have extra material in spots that will cause things to be tight.

      With the distributor out you aren't turning the oil pump anymore. If it turns that hard with the distubutor out the aux shaft bearings might be toast. They are not an easy replacement that requires...

      That also turns the oil pump for the engine. If you are trying to turn it with the belt off and the engine full of oil it very well may be hard to turn because it's pumping oil when you turn it. Is...

      I forgot about the delrin mounts in my VRT mk2. They never seemed to have the vibrations the "soft" poly mounts did, even when cold.

      Time, time, and more time. Not sure how you ensure they are fully filled, either. Would be an interesting experiment. I had the BFI 0.5 mounts and they weren't bad, except for the first few minutes...

      There is a small bolt on the back side of the arm that holds it into the tensioner assembly, yours has wandered away. It is usually an allen head bolt, and some digging came up with a spec of m6 x...

      I'm not sure on the O2 sensor. That auxiliary air tube is on the bottom, actually, so it should clear the intake just fine.

      I'd try another dealer. I've never had an issue calling with the serial number from the radio. It's not like they are a high demand/theft item these days.

      Here's one of the AEG manifolds on Ebay, though you can probably find one for much less in a junkyard. You can either weld the auxiliary tube (I forget if it's EGR or SAI) shut, or cap it somehow, I...

      No, you cannot jusy eliminate the O2 sensor if you want the car to run right. Putting it in 1 of 2 downpipes will not give the computer accurate readings of how all cylinders are running. Later...

      You can use a mk4 2.0L exhaust manifold for a tubular setup vs the cast ABA manifold and both will have the dual outlet you're after. Either setup should have the upstream O2 sensor you need to run...

      What was said above. The lines may be more of an issue, and the bolts that hold the wheel cylinders on can be rusted to all get out, but the backing plates on these rarely go bad. If you're replacing...

      The VR6 mk3 axle is different from the 4 cylinder axle where it engages the hub. IIRC the track width is also different.

      IIRC the idle switches and WOT are related to the ignition system and the timing advance under the conditions where they are tripped.
