Thought I'd say hi!
Bought a 1993 2.4 T4 high top in November, think we got a good deal but have shelled out for cam belt change and a split clutch slave cylinder so starting to realise how much maintenence these things cost! Want to get it sorted for the spring. Last thing to sort out is a rattle which the garage thinks is the rod in the vacum pump tapping against the cam so going to do that.

Have a limited experience with cars etc, mainly from my first ever car (mkI fiesta!) but tomorrow going to attempt to change the oil and filter - feel I should be able to do the basics! Looking to learn a lot and do more and more myself - both for my wallet and overall man points.

Only thing is I'll be doing the oil change tomorrow on the back of a night shift in A+E, but something needs to keep me awake for the game tomorrow evening, where I'm sure Wales will errr... :eek:

Anyway, last thing is I'm also looking for a swivel base for the passenger seat, have seen them for £160 - are there any cheaper ones?

cheers!

Nick

hi mate, oil and filter change is ok, check with VW to make sure you get right grade, contact GSF or TPS and get a business trade account and save loads on parts.
