  1. MY GOLF VR6 PROJECT

    Been finding some Puddles on the front passenger and driver side. I Know the seals On the doors are shot including windows, which will be replaced soon but water was entering from behind the fuse box and also On the passenger side where the rubber bung is behind the heater blower. After investigating further i found that the live (red) wire for the amp was fed through this rubber bung at the top therefore water was pouring in. I removed the wire and pushed it through the bung which then sealed properly. I applied some silicone around it to make sure. Hopefully this is now resolved. As for the driver side i checked the bonnet release cable rubber under the scuttle panel. It seemed pretty good but i gave this a good clean and sealed it up with some silicone. It was raining and i never noticed any water in the usual areas so fingers crossed this is sorted. Moving on i checked the rear of the car. Removed the sound proofing and carpets to check the spare wheel area. Carpet was wet so after checking the area i decided to remove the rear lights to check the seals/gasket. WOW! one screw on each light and water was definitely coming in from the passenger rear light. I gave it a good clean and then used new seals/gasket with some silicone around the edges. Also got all the nuts and tightened them up as before there was 1 nut on each light that seemed only hand tight lol.

    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.

    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.

    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..

    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.

    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

    Did you replace the Aux pump yourself? And i would try another stat in that case. Also to mention i have a mk 6 golf which does what you describe my temp would go over 100 and fans would kick in however the temp wouldn't drop, i bled the system and haven't had the issue again
