Do i have to take off the oil pan to replace a rear main seal on a 88 cabriolet vw


Hi Sean, If we're talking about the engine and not the gearbox it is advisable to remove the sump, as when refitting it you can make sure that the sump gasket is not damaged. Its a lot easier than needing to do the job over to fix a leakage from the gasket. Regards John.

How do I replace the starter in an 86 vw cabriolet?


If it's a 5 speed, you will need to disconnect the battery at the positive terminal. Jack the car up and support with jack stands. You will need another jack to sit under the oil pan, due to the fact that when removing the starter, the bolts through the starter go thru the front motor mount. Disconnect the large wire from the starter, usally a 13mm nut, and unplug the smaller wire. Remove the upper and lower bolts going thru the starter, usally a 17mm bolt head, or an allen head bolt. Remove the starter, you may have to jack up or down the motor to get the starter bolts started into the front mount. If it's an automatic, the starter is mounted between the engine and the firewall. The 5 speed starter is between the engine and radiator.
