Ohh that's not going to buff out

Post by Fatmobile »

Here's a picture of the jetta I'm parting out:

Gotta love that tailpipe, ha

Some guy hit a slick spot and rolled into the ditch this winter.
I'm needing a better ALH engine for the MTDI and can use the 5-speed for something.
Plus there are several other parts that will fill in gaps in my 2000 Jetta.
The guy put a new clutch and control arms on it just before the crash.
Came with new tie rods, and a ball joint still in the bag.

Good save picking up the pieces of that (wtf?).
I've never seen so many things wrong about a tailpipe. :lol:
Exhaust, bumper, barber shop sign, rain gauge - all in one.

I can't stop picking at it.
Just when I think I have everything, I think of something else to grab or tear apart.
I want to know how to fix the heater vent doors, the Mk4s have the same problem as the MK2s.
So I pulled the dash off.

All the little locking things like rear seats, glove box, trunk fuel cap controls are different than my other ones
so I got those so I can swap tumblers.

I been wanting one of those antennas for the rabbit for a long time.
That was a lot of work getting the headliner off,.. damn if there wasn't a family of mice came running right at me.

The passenger door controls don't work on my 2000 jetta
so I went to grab the ones off this one and look there are aftermarket kicker speakers.
SO I had to pull all the door cards and grab all of them.
Had a six CD changer inside the rear left cover, not sure how that works.


Thought I was done but I was just sitting here thinking
oh I didn't grab the seat belts yet, ha.

I wish I could find someone who needed those driver's side doors, such a nice color.

I've always felt like the most everything about the mk4 jettas were a little better than the golfs,
except that it's a sedan.

I hear the MK4 golf headlight setup works better.
I'd rather have a MK4 golf than a Jetta, even if some of the parts are better.
They will swap over.
That's the way it was with the MK2s also
