Mk2 jetta. Update 22/04
« Reply #26 on: 20 April 2012, 20:43 »


Update on the Jetta, had a good day on it yesterday followed by a bit of a sh!t day onit today

Firstly, the head lights were like candles so fitted a updated headlight loom and a set of xenons, much better! thumb 

Then I got a remote central looking kit from rclick, took about three hours bcoz I had to fit an actuator in the door but got it fitted, wired in and working!  :nbn

Today I thort I'd have a go at the paint, as you can kinda see in this pic, I had replacement door and showed up how bad the paint is on the rest of the car



So I attacked the sh!te paint work, armed with 1500 and 2000 grit wet and dry and mags compound and polish, and look what I found under the sh!te paint!!



The original paint! Looks like the Jetta had a very bad respray down the top half of the drivers side. But well happy with that.

Now we're it started to go wrong. Went to unlock the car, with my new fob, and nothing! Didn't lock or unlock. So off with the door card, again! Long story short had to refit the actuator, twice!

Then after doing this I saw that the drivers rubber mat was wet!? Wired as it dry out, took it out and was greeted with a massive puddle in the foot well, so gutted to whole drivers side of the car,


(note the wet ground, and green moldy sound deadening)

Ive put it own to the door membrains as both o/s doors were hanging off, so I ducttaped them all back on. Hopefully that'll sort it.

That's all folks!

Got it all dried out today and the interior back together, changing the gearbox oil tomorrow and then MOT time!
