Re: Wi-fi router - time for a new 1, what to look out for when buying ?

I've not had too many of them, but I have a Netgear DGND4000, and the wifi sucks balls. The range is crappy, you cannot add an external antennae, but the worst issue I have is that the wifi will suddenly disappear, knocking your streaming or catchup plus out of whack, and usually corrupting the enti...

Re: Heater

Obviously not directly, but using the fan would put a larger load on the alternator, which would take a small percentage of the engine power to turn it. But it would be really small, and I doubt you would be able to detect any change in fuel consumption with it on or off, even over a year's fuel tra...

Re: 1986 Passat dash light issues

I've had some fun with headlight switches for my mk2 jetta. In my case, there were various versions of the switch and GW was giving me the wrong one. VW does not seem to keep track of the VIN for old cars (not my 1989 jetta anyway) so they were not able to confirm parts ordered were correct for the ...

Re: Belix's Jetta 2 - Oil light and warning tone

Thanks Panic. I would assume it would be something a decent mechanic would have? I could buy one, but R400 for one test seems a bit wasteful.

Thanks tried the Randburg branch, maybe they just did not check other branches for stock.

where to get a MK2 Jetta/Golf late model window regulator?

Hi folks anyone know where I can buy a replacement manual window lift (driver side) for a MK2 Jetta/Golf late model (one without the quarterlight window). Have found a few places that said they had stock, but all turned out to be for the quarterlight model... http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MzkwWDUwMA==/z...

Re: Belix's Jetta 2 - Oil light and warning tone

Need to fix the images in this topic #photobucketsucksballs After the last service, the oil light is occasionally coming on with the warning tone. Checking the oil each time has shown no issue with oil level. Is there a way to check that the oil pump is still ok? What else could it be? Faulty pressu...

Re: Advice needed - Wrong ET = fenders touching tyres

From what I gather, the heat needed to enable the spring compression makes them brittle, as well as changing the spring rate. I'd personally not like to have a spring shatter on me but hey, that's just me.

Belix's '10 RS GTI 6 - from Durban to Pretoria...

So as a trip to the coast was on the cards, I booked a slot with Lawrence to get the car detailed. It involved a 1.5 hr trip to his place, an Uber and a rental car, then 1.5hrs back; and the reverse a couple days later. Was rather disappointed to hear from him that the paint was somewhat knocked, I ...
