  1. GTI 337/20th Anniversary/Jetta GLI Forum
    I have a broken linkage mount on my shift tower. This is in the transmission not the “shifter” Does anyone have one lying around or know of a source? VW says it’s obsolete… the other thought I’m having is can I put a 5 speed box in? It wouldn’t be the same but it would keep the car on the road...

    I'm having a problem with a loud screech or whistle when my turbo is under load after around 15 min or so. I thought it could be a boost leak and found a section of pipe mixed among the emissions bs that had a gash and I jerry rigged a new hose to fix it but I still hear sound after a bit. The...

    Went out to start my GTI 1.8T the other morning. Car would crank but it wouldn’t turn over. About the 4th time I tried cranking it the car wouldn’t crank at all. It was running perfectly fine the night before. Smoke started rolling from under the hood as well after the 4th crank. Anybody have...

    Hello all. This is my first post here after scouring the internet to no avail. I picked up a 2005 Gti with the AWP and the 09A transmission. It cranks but wont start.

    My battery light is flickering when I accelerate or if I sit still and press my gas pedal. I noticed a drop in acceleration speed as well. I've had the alternator tested at AutoZone and they said it was good, same for the battery. I checked connections and they're all tight. I've also changed my...

    I recently did an full engine change on my gti, duering which I swapped my old tranny over to my new motor. When I turned on the car the clutch felt really light and in neutral the wheels spin as well as a grinding noise coming from the tranny unless I hold down the clutch. I'm going to bleed...
  20. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Hello, I am currently doing an engine swap on my Mk 4 GTI. Putting a "newer" 1.8t AWP into it so it is a 1 for 1 swap nothing different. While I was taking it apart it became clear it's going to be a total bastard to put back together between a million hoses and electrical connectors. So I was...
