Volkswagen Fox Fuel Pumps are located inside your gas tank; being as liquid gasoline is not combustible, this is the best position for installation. Your car's Volkswagen Fox Fuel Pump is an apparatus that operates to move fuel out of the tank to the motor.

Vw 1600 fox will not go into reverse

Bring it into VW the shifter has to be reset and the hard plastic bushing that make the shifter work have to be replaced. There is a special toolVW uses to reset the shifter on these vehicles NOT ALL SHOPS HAVE IT. This is a no brainer. If the Dealer is gonna ask a fortune to repair it(Which they shouldn't) You can purchase this tool on line and with the shop manual you can do this yourself.

Vw fox lights do not go on despite changing fuses and relays

Try testing the switch and then the relay. Usually its the switch. Use a flat screw driver to pull it s out of there connector. Use a jumper wire and shop manual to jump the terminals and see if the lights come on. If they do its the switch.
The relay you check for continuity and resistance.
