I had a mark 8, similar year, there are electric blend door actuators, they are made of plastic, and overtime crack and loosen up. There are several fixes, I used a ferrel from a 1/2 brass compression fitting, and epoxy over it, held for the next 3 years I owned it. Dash board removal sucks, no room but is doable. Recommend checking wiper motor/linkage while your there, good time to do while it's apart. Hope it helps.

The windows are controlled by electric window regulators. They are cable regulators with electric motors. They average in price around $100, new.
If your window is up, don't put it down until you have the regulator replaced. Otherwise you may end up stuck with the window in the down position and no way to get it up.

Do a little research on the hose first. Some are preformed and they resist kinking better than a straight universal hose that may be harder to bend into place.

If you do this repair with the engine cold it will save you some antifreeze. There will still be leakage but less than on a warm engine. After you have the new part, cut off the old hose and it will be easier to remove the hose clamps.

Hopefully the original spring clamp will be on the hose ends. Do not use the screw type clamp as they always have uneven pressure. Slip off the hose clamp by squeezing the tabs and once removed slit the old hose to keep from being rough on the metal parts that you must remove the hose from.

Sometimes a little water to lube the new hose will help the new hose slip over the metal fixtures.

Hope this helps.

Yes. Instead of buying a junk yard unit, buy a REBUILT unit from a rebuilder. They'll program it with the latest software and give you a warranty. These guys are good

Your best bet , take it an have some testing done . Fuel system , engine management system , electrical system test etc.... Could be any number of thing's ,guessing an just replacing parts doesn't work . Won't start how ? When you turn the key to start does the starter spin the engine ? Crank - no - start ! Or you turn the key an nothing happens ? No crank no start .
