    So I've got my '96 cabrio with a 3.0 I-4. I'm assuming its time in FL before I got it made the outside of the block rusty as hell. I'm planning on swapping it and the transmission (reverse gear is shredded) for a newer engine. I am hoping I can get a vr6 and 6 speed manual into it. I figured...

    I'm slightly late to the game on starting this thread, but not by much. I've got some very big plans for this car: starting with (in no particular order at the moment): BBK, Suspension, full exhaust, Scirocco gear shift lever, short shift kit, and possibly the Cam before the winter. Then...

    New to Cabrio. Have 1999 MK3 Convertible. Previous Owner says - "There's a P0103 code, but I just put a new MAF in it and it didn't fix the problem." Housing looks clean, new and genuine. Question is - is the sensor inside the housing legit?? Sensor body has no 'Bosch' markings or other...

    Hello fellow dudes and dudettes! I did a smog pump delete on my 2000 cabrio and I was wondering if I need the combi valve that's on there as well? I feel like I should be able to just remove the valve and block it with a plate... Not 2000 percent sure (see what I did there...?) Anyway, if...

    Hi guys! I'm new to this forum and was looking for advice on mods to do to my cabbrio to make it faster. I'm a mechanical engineer and want to lean more about cars so I bought this 115 hp machine in the hopes to make it a little more fun. All ideas welcome! Thanks so much! Zeek

    Hello everyone! :D Golfs are a lot of fun for multiple reasons. They're (relatively) lightweight, FWD and if fitted with a proper engine they can be a lot of fun. Cabby's come with the handicap of being heavy boys, weighing 300 pounds more. So I made a post earlier about my Golf Mk3 Cabriolet...

    Cheers. From the looks of it, this question has been asked a thousand different ways. But nothing sounded like it accurately applied here, so I'll just ask for general ideas and insight. I picked up an 06 Cabrio 1.8T from a guy who said it just needed new keys. I assumed there would be more...

    I have a cabrio 99 and when I’m driving it it just randomly beeps. Does anyone know what wrong with it
  19. Cabriolet
    It appears that in order to change the plugs that the aluminum plenum needs to be unbolted and swung up to access them. Does the plenum gasket usually need to be replaced? U Tube video makes it look harder then needed.

    Anyone have a diy or know the steps on removing the bumper and radiator without opening the ac system? I have a bentley but it doesn’t show how to remove the radiator from the front support.
