This is a shot in the dark, but its probably your lower steering column bearing, that will make everything wobble, and it happens to almost ALL mk1 vw's at some point. Just google "steering column fix" and you'll have it taken care of.

Your question is vague so that doesn't help. Doubt its the actual rack, as I have an original one in my rabbit with almost 400,000 miles. On top of that I had another rabbit that died around 400,000 with an original steering rack, and I am beating a dead horse by letting you know that my 83 gti has been punished since day 1, and guess what...stock steering rack.

SOURCE: Golf gti left rear door locking system

it is probably your door lock has gone into safe mode.you need a new door lock.try using the lock/unlock button on your remote or on the drivers door button and gently tap the door handle with your hand while pressing the lock/unlock button,carefull not to dent your car.if that does not work,try disconnecting the cars battery for a few minutes,but note the vehicle might pick up fault codes which need a diagnostic machine to clear...good luck

SOURCE: electric windows not working, how do i fix this golf gti 115 mark

To isolate your problem a few questions needed.

  • Do you hear any noise when you hit the switch
  • Does it move a bit
  • Can you operate it from the outside locking mechanism
If you can hear the motor (regulator) but window does not operate, then we established that power is being supplied and fuse/relay are ok. Your problem is a bad window regulator or a guide cable is fraying and caused it to knot up on the guides.

If you hear nothing at all then you first need to figure whether it's a fuse, a relay or the wiring is bad.

Probably the starter needs to be replaced. If it was the battery, you would have more problems cold than hot.

Steering sticking when turning had new steering rack/ pump goes very heavy have to wiggle steering to release so can drive


Faulty steering rack command.
The command vamve is fixed on the steering column with a pin. That pin is probabily broken.

If you open the rack yourself, be very carefully. It's fine precision parts.
Or, have a good rack from your reseller under warranty.
