What will happen , you will be in all sorts of bother
try this , remove the spark plugs then bring number 1 piston up on compression until the timing marks read tdc
remove the distributor cap and see if the rotor button is pointing to no 1 plug lead
directly under the center of the rotor button line , using a small triangular file and file a small nick in the edge of the distributor body if there is not already a mark there
remove all wires to the distributor . undo the single nut that holds the distributor clam to the block and lift the distributor out
note which way the rotor button turns as you will have to position it before the mark when reinstalling so that the rotor button ends back up at your mark on the body
points to remember--- no 1 piton has to be at tdc compression stroke and the rotor button has to be at your mark or existing mark to get it all right on assembly

How to fix my steering rack on my 1983 mk1 golf gti


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.

Replaced the timing belt on a 1990 VW Golf and now it won't start but it will turn over


Most likely the timing is way off. The engine will start when it is in time and when it is 180 degrees out of time. The timing marks on the cam and the crank will line up correctly once when it is #1 TDC and once when it is 180 degrees out of time. The problem happens when you have the Crank at #1 TDC as it should be and the cam is set incorrectly in most cases. If both valves on the head for the #1 are not closed with the intake open and the exhaust closed for the next cylinder in the firing order your cam is not set correctly even though the timing mark appears to be correct. If the previous timing belt broke while the engine was running odds are every valve will need to be replaced because they are bent. VW did not use a no contact engine in this year model which would have locked the valves in the closed position if the belt broke. If this in fact the case you can verify this by doing a compression check on the cylinders. If you have 0 compression on any cylinders you have bent valves. You can also attach an air compressor to a compression check hose and apply air pressure to each cylinder, if you don't get pressure in the cylinder the valves are either bent or not closing properly.

Cant locate the spark plugs on vw golf 88 mk1..any ideas?


I'm assuming you have a petrol fuelled car, as diesels do not have spark plugs.

Find the distributor cap leading off the distributor - it should look a little like this: http://www.google.com/images?um=1&hl=en&safe=off&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-GB:official&biw=1920&bih=895&tbs=isch:1&aq=f&aqi=g8g-m1&oq=&q=distributor%20cap

there should be 5 leads trailing from the cap - the lead in the centre leads to the "coil", the other 4 leads go to the spark plugs. There should only be 4 as the Mk1 was only made as a 4 cylinder engine.

Pull off the leads (though not whilst the engine is running as you'll electrocute yourself) and the spark plugs will be revealed.

Mk1 vw golf cabrio: hot starting problem?


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

Clutch repair 2005 VW Chico


You need to empty the engine from all fluids, tehn remove air filter and other parts, mount your Golf on a bridge and remove the clutch pressure plate assembly mounted on a side of the engine.

You will need special tools to align and mount the new pressure plate, and you will need to follow a procedure to reinstall the clutch without removing the transaxle.

Replacing the clutch is not an easy task for a beginner, if you do it yourself, get the haynes manual with the complete illustrated procedure.

After replacing you will have to adjust the clutch. See CLUTCH REPLACEMENT PROCEDURES.
