If you have not disassembled the brake yet than remove the wheel take the dusk cap off of the drum and remove the nut and pull the drum and bearing off of the hub. then take your camera and take a picture of the brake assembly so you can remove and replace the parts in the right position.

Does running the radio in my 1987 Volkswagen Fox GL while the engine is not running damage the points and coil?

No, the radio should only be wired through your battery, and a relay. In 87, Volkswagen in my opinion had the best cars. VW from 83-89 was my favorite years especailly the GTI's. Good luck.

1988 VW Fox Indicator Light - Rear

These old models of Fox's are just that old. I have been told that the engine light goes on due to the lack of oil pressure in the car. The valves apparently get worn out and create a lower pressure that the oil will pass through them...therefore sometimes this registers as an engine light going off every now and again. However, my mechanic has told me that these old german cars are like tanks and can run on and on and on....on lesser than normal oil pressure in the engine. Keep it well maintained and watch for any abnormal or steady warning lights. My mechanic says don't take the car any farther away than I would chance a tow ride back. If that is a hint or what! Lol.
