Re: odd idle issue

I would do the Static timing as outlined in Ron's tutorial. You set the base time, then use a DVOM to adjust it. Way easier than the way the Bentley states, and it is usually spot on and only requires one person. https://www.reflectionsandshadows.com/cabby/static-digi.html VW's hate vacuum leaks.......

Re: Wiring question

From the connector and the location those I suspect are the wires out of the back of the Heater control panel RH side. But I thought those were brown and blue/gray. I don't remember a connector with Brown and black wires in it behind the dash in that location other than I said for the illumination o...

Re: Well the Rabbit dies again....

All parts are being donated to my 92. The rolling shell should be at pull-a-part next week.
After about 2.5 hours work I have the interior out, and the top is free save for the 2 headliner straps.

Re: New member 1992

Look at www.cabby-info.com
Yes the air-bagged model was for 3 years, but the 89 model year glass will fit with the clips taken out and a new seal.

Re: Is there a ground strap for the Hood?

That is called a Bonding wire. It places the Hood at the same potential as the frame. Is it needed? Well in the days of non-resistor plugs, and wires it would cause a motor boat effect in the Radios of the day. (you could hear the engine rev) It isn't really needed, but you can make a new one using ...

Heads up on Alternator replacements.

My LLW Alternator that I replaced just had a semi-failure. The Case screws that hold the body together had a strippage from the re-builder. One of the Case screws backed out due to strippage and started to hit the Alternator fan. A 4.5mm Nut wasn't replaced on the screw on the back, so I added 3 mor...

Re: Axle question

They are part numbered differently, and you need to know if you have 100mm or 90mm axles, as the 90ish Autos usually are 100mm, there have been tranny swaps that may have been done as it isn't that hard on a 90, and that you have to but change the differential cup. Here is the funny thing, the 100mm...

Re: New guy with a 91

From the looks of the rear, your Cable tray is suspect, and if the rust is really bad under the top, and Cable, you may want to locate a Wrecker with a good cable tray and cut it out so you can have it welded in if you can't. Then have a respray of just that area.
