The Volvo in the background was supposed to be a quick covid project with my dad, but turned out to need an engine rebuild in addition to floors. That was kinda fun, as my first big car project was a Volvo B20 rebuild. And also an auto to manual swap, so it's full circle time. With the nose opened up we can start to figure things out. I want to replace the cooling hoses while I'm in here. Also the water distributing crack pipe. There's been small oil leak for years back up by the pipe, which I think is a valve cover gasket but more will be clear with stuff removed.

You will likely find a number of plastic "bases" in your door as well as some broken "posts". I got the parts on Amazon/eBay. _________________Larry in OB Stop dead photo links!

It used to only lock intermittently, then it stopped locking altogether. The problem was a broken wire inside of the 4-pinned door contact assembly. I followed the procedure described by AZ-Nick to remove the door panel. I found that the door contact assembly (with the 4 pins) had a broken wire inside, I replaced it with a new one from VW for about $100 and the problem is solved. To troubleshoot it, remove the door panel, remove the 4-pinned switch by unscrewing it from the door and disconnect its electrical connector. Check each pin/wire for continuity using an ohmmeter to verify. A broken wire or bad contact will give high resistance or infinity reading. You should read zero ohms for a good connection. Just replace the switch. VW Part # 701-959-375-E.

Going up grades I put the trans in 3rd and go at 65 MPH. Otherwise the trans will shift back and forth between 3rd and 4th. Keeps up with traffic except the steepest of grades.

    Author: HeyCrutch Subject: Choice of glue/adhesive to reapply "gear selection" plastic? Posted: Fri Dec 02, 2022 4:55 am (GMT -7) Topic Replies: 2 The thin piece of plastic that indicates what gear the van is in on the shift selector trip part of the gear selector is no longer attached. Wondering what the pros out there would use to 1) clean up the two surfaces that will be re-mated, and 2) permanently glue the the surfaces back together. Since the green LED shines through the gear selector letters, it obviously needs to be completely transparent (or at least translucent). Is it as simple as using SuperGlue or Gorilla Glue? Thanks for the suggestions from any who have had to reattach this small piece before. Here's a stock photo of what I'm talking about ... It's just the plastic strip of letters that "peeled" off ... it's a fairly sturdy plastic piece so can be reattached with the proper cleanup and adhesive I assume.
