MY GOLF VR6 PROJECT

Recommended Posts

Picked up a bit of a shed not so long ago which I plan on restoring, its a 3 door mystic blue vr6 with about 109k on the clock. Needs a fair bit of work.

 

both sills need repairing (rust/corrosion)

 

jacking points (rust/corrosion)

 

Hole in the floor, done by previous owner but a poor job as you can see so will be doing this again

 

Possibly a full respray as its had a poor paint job

 

Few bits under the bonnet need attention

 

Heater control only works on 3/4 (ANY TIPS WELCOME)

 

Driver side electric window doesn't work (ANY TIPS WELCOME)

 

Central locking system doesn't work (ANY TIPS WELCOME)

 

Slight blow from the exhaust

 

Wires hanging out from under dash

 

Front passenger wheel seems like its on a angle

 

Tracking is out

 

God knows what else I may find lol

got it booked in for the welding job so I made a start by removing the seats, carpet and few of the rubber seals. Hoping once its done i may use some sort of sealant directly on the floor to prevent any further rust issues . Any recommendations are welcomed.

Driver side sill is a mess, will be ordering both sills in the next couple of days, tried many places and they seem to be out of stock. Some are overpriced too. Will be getting inner and outer sills. Rears seem fine as they where done by the previous owner doesn't look too bad back there but again i will have a proper look as there seems to be many surprises lol.. Image1602709093.163162.jpg

Sills ordered just waiting on delivery. In the mean time i investigated why the driver window was not functioning. Turns out the glass was not even fitted to anything and the window motor wire was full
Of water. Gave it a clean and fitted the glass in. Seemed to be working fine hopefully thats one thing out the way. I also removed most of the rubber/foam that was soaked. Lots of loose uncovered wiring was found under the glove box so will get on to this next. Passenger side door was filled with water i noticed there was a lot of gunk and glass blocking the drainage holes which resulted in the water building up. I drained the water, however still need to remove all the crap stuck in there.Image1603047081.725389.jpgImage1603047094.169252.jpg

So I cleaned up the passenger door and cleared the drain holes all looks good there now. I started on sorting all the wiring under the glove box out and thought whilst I'm there i should look in to then heater blower. Looks like some botched wiring job here. Will be getting a replacement blower and resistor. Noticed there was some water so I investigated further. Ended up checking the pollen filter and found gunk and leaves and the filter was drenched. I cleared this up gave it a good wipe down and made sure the water drainage channel was clear. I ended up using some silicone before fitting the pollen filter housing back on.
