  1. Hi there, When i try to start my MK4 all that happens is the relay behind the clocks clicks (which i can also feel) when the key is turned. i have checked the voltage on the small wire on the back of the starter and get nothing when the key is turned. is this the relay at fault or do i need to be looking for something else. Thanks in advance
  2. Hi im looking for the rubber insert for the vertical guide for the drop glass on the drivers door for my mk4 cabby, hav you got any and how much please

  3. Hi all, this might sound a bit of a strange one but here goes. How do i clean the inside of the rear quarter glass where it meets the B post on my Mk 4. There is a little triangle bit i can't get at but im sure there must be a way, any help would be appreciated it is realy getting on my nerves.
  4. Hi there i just bought replacement front seatbelts, for my mk4 cabby doe's anyone know if they are handed, one wont come out if the car is pointing down hill and the other continuously tightens up whilst driving. Thanks.

    Adjustment ?

    I wil try that Thanks.
  13. Hi again ! i have noticed that the roof when closed doesn't have an equal gap along the top of the windscreen, it's a bit bigger on the drivers side. Is it possible to do any adjustment to the roof frame if there is any to close the gap up?. Thanks.
