You do not need the spring. It was only for keeping the seat back from rattling.

2001 VW Beetle. The driver's front seat adjuster


I'm assuming you have manual adjustment seats. There is a spring underneath the seat that locks the end of the lever into corresponding notches in the seat frame rail. That spring has either fallen off or broken.

2000 VW Golf. My windows and sunroof won't close (no noise, no trying, nothing) but everything else seems to work fine. Any ideas?


Fuse blown - look for the one with the key symbol it powers windows/locks/interior lights/sunroof operation. Then work out why it blows...could be anything on the circuit so check a lock isn't sticking on/off when operating the central locking.

How do I fit coil over rear springs on VW Golf mk4


first you can loosen the top strut nuts, they are accesses from the boot and the bolt tops may have an allen key top you can use to stop the piston spinning, then you will need to jack up back of car, one side at a time, unbolt bottom of existing shocks, place new ones inplace but bolt tops in first, if they dont fit as too long to get into the bottom bolt holes, try jacking the car as high as possible and get a friend to slowly but firmly push down on the rear wheel, (btw you do this with the wheels on, just as easy as off) and with that extra clearance you should get em in.. or there are spring compressors but I doubt they will be needed, or even possible on "in car mounted" springs.. goodluck, there are also several articles on vwwatercooled.org.au, checkit!! :) Chas

VW Mk 4 golf heater fan settings 1-3 not working but 4 does. Can anyone help? The fan will only work on the higest setting but does not work on the lower setting. I can hear the A/C kicking in when you...


It's most likely to be the resistor, it's a common problem. You should be able to get one at your local motor factors or breakers yard and they are generally easy to fit. Not sure of its position on a golf - check a haynes manual or ask your local garage.

Spring lowering


Hi

You answered the question yourself there! You buy a set of lowering springs which suit your needs and fit them in place of the old springs.

I have known people actually remove the old springs and then cut them down to the required height before refitting them again, but I personally wouldn't recommend this practice unless you can get it perfect, because the springs not only have to be the same height, they also have to sit snuggly in their seats once they're refitted.

Very best regards
