Tip & How-To about Volkswagen Golf
As a mechanic of over 40 years of vast experience, I am constantly amazed by people who obviously expect to fix their own cars without access to the factory service manuals. They ARE available to the public, either by paying an access fee to an online provider or by ordering them from the dealer or often eBay. Consider that I will not take on the repair of any of the last two decade's cars without the repair manuals and I am pretty bloody good at this game. Good heavens, without the manuals, you sometimes cannot even remove the parts you need to remove to get at the parts that you have to replace. Dashes, for instance, are constructed to deny access to the do it your selfer. Get your car's service manual (real or virtual) and you won't have to write in here and probably get a not too useful answer anyway. YOU NEED THE REPAIR MANUAL TO FIX YOUR CAR PROPERLY. You can hurt yourself for one thing (pain). Or you can hurt the car (money). And by the way, Haynes manuals are for the most part, good for not much.
