Popped off the front arch liners and cleaned out the compost. Flushed through with lots if water. This job should be on the maintenance schedule!

The car is doing me proud. All apart from the noisy ac compressor. It works but makes a racket when cold, and bit of a rattle when car warmed up.
I'm using the golf daily at the moment as my other money pit (imported subaru legacy turbo monster) is on my driveway in bits.
That is meant to be my daily and the golf was meant to be tucked away in the garage! :-D

Some more broken parts to add to my Mkiv golf hall of shame....
Window clips from driver's door :(
Last heard  hurtling towards innards of door. Somehow got away without the glass shattering.

Carrier panel off and rebuilt with new metal clips. Waiting to refit at weekend and charge battery which has strangely drained with car in bits.

Got the window carrier rebuilt and fitted back in door. Moment of truth when firing up the window mech, its alive!
Will finish this job off tomorrow am by sealing the panel back in place and refitting the door trim.

Job done.
Much head scratching before I realised the inner window seal top strip should stay on door and trim panel hangs on that.
Wasted 30 mins of my life stuck on it!

Failing power steering will likely top of the list....
A feeling of dread coming over me.
