      Alright everyone, this photo explains a lot, not the previous owners fault but still...



      Sadly, the shop (Tire Kingdom) << because seriously **** you guys, who replaced the shift cables did not properly install the exhaust or any of the heat shielding correctly. By not installing the exhaust properly it caused the exhaust to rub against the heat shielding, rub through to the tank, and pierce it you ****ty ****ing pretend mechanic.

      Needless to say Tire Kingdom will be hearing from not only me but also the previous owner on this, this could have started a fire. Needless to say a new fuel tank $35 from salvage, and heat shields $20, the car will be good as new. Here are the photos.



      It's hard to tell but below you can see where they had blatant disregard for the heat shielding.



      How lazy can you ****ing be?



      Oh those shift cables bro? They will be alright rubbing on the sharp heat shield and resting on the oxygen sensor (now I know why there is that fault code).



      Anyways, that's all for now, these things should be repaired soon for the curious the fuel tank removal process is detailed below (semi accurate).

      - Disconnect fuel pump and lines (access hole)
      - Remove RR fender liner
      - Remove EVAP components (charcoal canister / purge valve)
      - Remove Fuel door and screws behind cover that secure filler neck
      - Loosen/Remove rear beam pivot mounts (Secure the beam so it doesn't kill you)
      - Secure fuel tank with Jack
      - Loosen straps to fuel tank (remove useless plastic cover)
      - Lower tank and replace

      This should be the order, this isn't listed anywhere in the Bentley manual from what I could find online, I should have the book tonight to take a look. Anyways, questions comments concerns? I encourage you to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube Channel as well as I plan on videoing the repairs to help some people out. TTY bafoons soon.

      PS: Big photos are big.

      WTF over? Definitely looks like they didn't even try or care, if they push back I'd take them to a small claims court.

      Oh yeah, already in the process this is a big safety issue that could shut that store down.

      UPDATE!

      Tank was ordered from a local salvage yard for $35 Yeah!!! It comes from a 2001 Jetta with <60K miles .

      So I have some good news for the community because this thread is about helping the fellow dubber I just received this



      I will be uploading diagrams to help people follow along with what I'm doing. No I will not upload everything because if you are smart you know where to find it. Also my Shift Rod bushings have been delivered along with new vacuum pump and end caps woo! So plan on seeing that completed soon with pictures and hopefully video. More to come...

      Actually, the previous owner couldn't keep up with payments after having an issue with the shift cables and I offered to take the car back, So I received about $3000 for leasing the car the past year and a half. Good to see you too George!

      So, this may be out of the range of questions here. But do did you personally lease the car or do you work at a buy here pay here or something? Just curious as to how the situation with leasing a MKIV and falling behind on payments happened.

      Yes I personally leased the car to a co-worker. They originally were making payments to purchase the car from me but I gave them an out, either return the car (voluntary repo) or pay the amount. We also had a contract made so I had proper documentation as per FL laws.

      On a side note, I tried to take video of the shift rod bushing replacement but couldn't hold my phone and wrench so I have some that I'm going to try and work on but it's not of any quality. I asked my buddy that has a go pro to borrow it for the gas tank replacement because believe it or not, there are 0 videos online detailing how to complete this job from beginning to end.

      Welcome back! I will be doing the second half of my gas tank replacement as soon as school finishes the beginning of May. Finally putting the R32 one in, pretty much the last part before it can drive again.

      Glad to see you guys again, Nate Jesus man put that thing back together already

      Alright down to business, you all will hate this part, no pictures as I broke my phone at the start of the weekend so I'll just give you a comprehensive list of **** that got done.

      - Front Coil Adjustment back down 2.0 inches
      - Oil change (the car was 2 quarts high )
      - Coolant flush (who the **** puts prestone in a VW?!)
      - rear beam respray
      - rear beam bushing replacement with poly
      - rear brake job
      - fuel tank replacement

      So on top of this the ****ing idiots that put the car back together after replacing the shift cables beat the heat shield into place BACKWORDS ..... Who the hell does that?! So needless to say the head shield was hammered out and turned around and is now back in the proper position.

      I did take the chance to drive the car last night for a second and it seems as though the shiftrod itself is possibly sticking. I need to look into that but she is up and running again thank god.

      Where to begin

      First I tried this, and another one to make sure it was working



      Well they didn't work, sound only came out of one speaker which lead to this



      and I decided not to stop there so I also got this



      this



      and this



      But i'm not done there because I couldn't align this



      without this



      ..... but you know I just didn't feel right without ordering these





      which meant to complete it I needed to get these...



      and finally because Florida order these

      Okay so i have a 2003 jetta and absolutely hate that my only cup holders are the ones that cover up the radio but i saw a post with someone who changed his with a small shallow looking circular cupholder slot instead of a pencil sized narrow slot. Can someone please tell me where I can get one or someone who is willing to sell me one in grey? Or tell me where they have found others. Thank you in advance and please help.

      Are you talking about the ones like this? If not can you find a picture of what you are talking about? This style is on the very first MKIV's.
