Re: things to replace at 100k (toothbrush)

Forgotten stuff
Rear wheel bearings inspect and repack them.
Brake fluid flush it with DOT 4 Castrol LMA
I'm even anal enough to flush the power steering fluid, just make sure to use the right ****
Replace all the crumbly vacuum lines in the engine compartment. Don't use that cheap rubbish hose bought at vatozone or Krappens. The dealer has the right cloth braided **** for the job.

replace the hoses while you do the coolant flush, instead of wasting that expensive vw coolant later down the road. might as well replace the air filter along with the fuel filter. and if you have the time knock out the heater core.

Re: things to replace at 100k (redskinsboy326)

the heater core is such a hassel.. But its worth it. I guess. While I'm in that area. Which i believe its in the same area ill check my vents. Anywhere else i should check and replace? And its okay i don't have to worry about my windows fallin down. I got lucky with that and got manual windows. But it sucks trying to find black door cards.

Water pump should be done with timing belt and while you're at it with coolant and oil drained replace the o-ring on top of the oil cooler. It can be done without draining coolant but is much easier if you can disconnect the two hoses.

im actually getting a new one cause its slipping. and when i have my mechanic do it. and tell him to take a look at the seals

If he is doing the clutch, might as well replace those 3 seals and the push rod bushing. Its like $20 worth of parts and will last another 100k http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
