  1. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Basically the question in the title, has anyone tried this? From the product page windshield glue is basically polyurethane. Any tips for bonding with oem rubber better? My concerns are that it's maybe too thick for applying properly. The glue in pic is Sika track drive

    I recently moved to Cleveland for a new job and just as I was finishing moving, my 2010 Jetta TDI started giving me trouble. Fortunately, it was a relatively easy fix, and the car is running fine, but I am looking to do several upgrades to the brakes and suspension and can't really do the work...

    Hiya. Three months in, and my moment of truth Phaeton ownership has arrived. The driver side vent flap motor appears to have gone. From what I’ve read on previous threads it seems like a pretty cheap and straightforward job. I just had a couple of questions before I dive in: 1. Where are the...

    I'm searching for a diy on evaporator core replacement. I've been digging and everything I'm finding is heater core, mine works fine, or has guides linked with broken links. As well as information I'm not sure about, like the mk6 and mk5 process being the same with no guides for that either...

    Fairly new to scene here but I have been digging around enough that I’m starting to get an idea of what I want to do with my 2.0L 8V AVH . But I’m totally lost on how to actually do any of it. I’m looking at the Techtonics 276 cam shaft, with at-least all new springs, I’m not sure what else...

  16. Passat (B5)
    I have always been a fan of classic American cars, but since they're so expensive to drive and maintain, I found it cheaper to buy a boring but practical modern cars and then modify them instead. This is the story of how I installed fins onto my Passat: As I learned from my old Mazda, it's...
