Do you have the EFI or the CIS injection? If you have a metal device on top of your air box with braided metal lines going to each cylinder it's CIS. If there are no braided metal lines, then it's EFI. If it's EFI, then the injectors are held in by the fuel rail and the fuel rail bolts down to the head with 2 or more bolts. Remove those bolts and pull the rail... HARD. If you've never removed them it will be a hassle. If it's the CIS, then the injectors are held in by a snap ring retainer. They can be removed with a flat screwdriver or a strong pair of needle nose. Once that retainer is pulled out, the single injector will pull out (pull hard). Good luck.

Sediment in my fuel tank. 1987 volkswagen cabriolet. how do I clean it out?

How was the fuel in the filter when you removed the filter?If you just replaced the fuel filter that is a good start, But you are a CIS,You basically have a coked up fuel distribution bowl. With the engine off, take out the air intake boot and acess the air flow sensor plate push it down,if it readily comes back up nice and easy then its in good shape, if it slowly comes up and even not at all use carburator cleaner try to clean up the lever plate,so it will have a smooth operation ,this is a fuel metering device,8_10_2012_4_55_34_am.gif

We have a 1985 Volkswagon Cabriolet that we had one set of keys for and now have lost. The key to the gas cap was lost with it! Any suggestions on what to do????

Gas cap locks are rather crude ,almost any cap lock key
will unlock another,just wiggle the key like a lock pick,most likely will open. Any key thet will fit in the cylinder

After running for 10 minutes or so, the car dies...acts like it not getting enough gas...let it cool down and it will run fine for onther 10 minutes or so...1987 volkswagon cabriolet ...any suggestions

This vw has two fuel pumps one low pressure pump in tank and one high pressure pump under car make sure both are getting power and both are pumping, next try switching out the coolant temp sensor for the computer. The old vw cis fuel injection systems are very complex, so if you don't know what it is don't touch it get a book or better on old vw mechanic! ; )

Difficult to put into first gear. 1987 volkswagon cariolet

if it's a standard. the syncro for first gear in the transmission is bad. every gear has a seprate syncro which why the clutch is in puts the gear in sync. so it wil go into gear. they tend to go after years of use. first gear or reverse are usually the first to go because they get the most use
