Re: A complete write up for removing the AC in a 1984 Rabbit GTI. (at4gli)

I am getting ready to do this in a few weeks......I have all the pieces.
a couple questions:
I was going to try and re-use my alternator....did you try this ?
What did you use to plug the holes where the lines go thru the firewall ?
So far I did remove the support leg to the ac bracket, (held on by starter bolt)
I had to go back to the donor car and get the shorter top bolt for the starter, once you remove the "support leg", the old bolt doesn't have enough threads to make up the difference of the missing "leg" piece. I didn't want to use washers either.
Nice write up, brought to attention some situations I didn't think I would have to deal with.
