  2. GTI Inner CV - Same as Polo Mk4/5?

    Yes I will be dropping the box, it will be getting swapped over when my recently sourced spare 6 speed gets rebuilt with diff. I also sourced hubs and drive shafts too - going to rebuild them, was looking at sourcing joint .- I have had my share of moly CV grease under the finger nails, it is not something I am looking forward to.

  9. Problems with full length sunroof.

    If you get a new mechanism - the Stevens one or another -it wont matter how you get into your old roof your current mechanism is toast, as long as your good canvas is kept good (still assuming it is possible) to swap over. Personally, I think it is too tight time wise to get another roof for Friday, just chuck your old one back on and duct tape the edges - don't bother putting the roof lining in. this buys you some time to think and research. Not entirely sure why you need the roof entirely fixed just now in February?
  10. Problems with full length sunroof.

    You are really just buying a working drive. I'm no expert, but could you swap over your current canvas with the torn one when the weather is better? I have bought from Stevens in the past, they are not cheapest, but the mk3 door I got from them years ago was wrapped very well and I seem to recall they dispatch quickly. If this is not this you need to chuck the current roof back on for Friday.
  11. Front and rear bearings design are same as Mk4 Golf -Lots of You tube films out there I have my own cheap hydraulic press but this requires the hub removed form the car. There is a Wheel bearing removal tool that can remove and install the bearing with the hub on the car maintaining alignment. -sell the tool on after using
