    I’m beating myself up but need the help. I mindlessly dropped the clutch. The car was on, in reverse, and still had parking brake engaged. Clunked, stalled. Now, going from 3rd to 4th is “rough” and so is going from 5th to 4th; sometimes, getting back in 3rd is sticky. Not really noticeable...

    I recently had to change my 2010 VW Jetta's flange seal - 5 spd, 2.5L engine. When I went to replace it I noticed a bearing was crushed so I pulled the entire transmission and replaced the bearings on both ends of the output shaft and one at the bottom off what I believe was the input shaft...

    Hello all, I've recently installed the I.E. stage 2 upgrade (I jumped straight from stock) and I've had some problems. For starters the rpm drops to about 600-700 within 2 seconds after starting or revving the engine. This signals to me like there is a big air leak somewhere but I'm not certain...

    I have a mk5 Jetta 2.5 with manual transmission. So the car didn’t start one day with no click and no crank but it did start right away after multiple attempts. Then I had thsame problem every morning until it shuts off while driving. I was able to start the car one last time and parked the car...

    Hi, first time poster, I have a mk5 jetta (2.5l I5) and I wanted to do my first engine swap on it. I was wondering if the 2.5L I5 TFSI would fit in it since I like the idea of sticking with the I5 style of engine. If that wouldn't work I'd love to here some engine suggestions, money is no object...
  8. Golf IV & Jetta IV
    Looking for any and all information about swapping a mk5 5 cylinder into a mk4 platform. Engines are easy to come by but I am wondering what year/model engine harness I will need as well as ecu. Since its a TT I am hoping to mate to the o2m trans in the car to keep it awd, can I use a 1.8t...

    Finally found a decent shape driver fender, only for the wreckers to mis-label the colour as United Gray when it was actually Sage Green. Took it anyways as it’s better than the old one, hopefully one of the right colour pops up eventually!

    It looks like the flex pipe on my exhaust has failed on my 2008 Rabbit (CBTA), 157k miles. I'm looking at my options and would like to hear what others have done. Some genius at VW made the most expensive part of the exhaust (catalytic converter) and the part most likely to fail (flex pipe)...

    I have been searching for months for a set of center caps for these wheels. I’ve contacted MTechnica, Memeoryfab, and ecs, hoping they had some collecting dust in the deepest, darkest reaches of their basement. But it wasn’t so. Does anyone have a set or know anything about the center caps and...
