Question about 1996 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Did I do right in buying or should I give it back?

My air conditioner don't work, 2nd gear grinds, the sun roof won't close and power steering oil keeps going low but can't find leak, oil light keeps coming on and then goes off and all levels are good, 145,000 miles is the car gonna blow? I just paid $1500.00 all the money I had. Do you think I got a lemon at the age of 19?Should I look for a overly high bridge?

HELP! HELP!

Whats it mean when I hear a grinding noise when I steer either way?


it indicates that when the pump gears are placed under pressure /load that they are interfering with the pump housing or are not being held in the correct mesh situation
the situation of powers steering that when in the relaxed position ( no steering wheel movement) the valves are so placed that the oil is by passed straight back to the reservoir but any movement of the wheel closes those valves and diverts the oil to the cylinder/actuator and so power assists the steering
AT this point is when load is applied to the pump and the noise is heard
I would suggest that the pump be removed and inspected for wear on the idler gear shaft, wear on the tips of the teeth from contact with the housing
Mostly the best fix is a replacement pump because it the clearance between the teeth and the housing is excessive or scored then the full pressure will not be achieved

Sun roof wont close


theres a way to close it by taking off the panel above that covers the motor and putting a allen wrench into the middle of the motor unit and turning it i think clockwise. If the gears are stripped it wont work...but if its just the motor then manually turning the gear should close it. I figured out which way it needed to be turned to close then put a allen attachment on my cordless drill and made it easier cause it will take awhile

My2001 Mitsubishi Diamante sunroof wont close i


Does the sun roof do anything whebn you press the button. if not, check your fuses and the sun roof switch. If fuses are good you want to check to see if the sun roof motor is getting power. If it is getting power it could be the motor itself. If it tries to move but can't then you have a mechanical problem. it might be binding so try giving it an assist by pushing on it when pressing the switch.

Can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof


It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.
