A lot of us own other VW's and I have a few. The MK3 Golf has been pushing it's luck lately. Power windows are a known problem with these and after having the drivers rear and passengers front fixed, along with an oil leak from the motor from a pressure switch, I made the decision to get rid of it - no one was really driving it and it was costing me $$$ in rego and insurance. Fitted a full set of new tyres. Within 2 days of getting it back from the mechanic, the drivers window decided to go down and not come back up - GRRR!!! So I waited for the mechanic to get the part and it went to him on Friday. Fixed and it is now getting sold - to my brother (who actually bought and still has my last Mk3). My Touareg has been getting a bit of love too. I had a noise under the bonnet which we thought was the alternator - turned out it was a bearing in the airconditoner compressor - which joins on the the alternator. Got that fixed, had the drive shaft bearing and boot replaced - the bearing had already been done by previous owner but they hacked the boot and for those that don't know, the drive shaft bearing is a common problem that can put you off the road suddenly and we can't risk that - we are off to Uluru this week in it. Now today I went to the shops and with the headlights in this car set to automatic, I suddenly get a warning - one of my headlights has blown. Oh well - just something that needs to be done before Wednesday.
