1996 VW Golf MkIII Teardrop Rims Needs Clutch Soon   Price: 1100
Runs great.
Never stalls.
Registered as non-operative vehicle

Will need catalytic converter replaced to pass next smog test.

Clear coat is badly sunburned. But no serious rust.

Will need clutch replaced as it occasionally slips. This is a safety must.

Engine compartment is a mess - but everything works - never any problems in 4 years of ownership.

Oil/filter changed religiously.

Rear seats are missing. Same as Jetta's seats.

Recent tires, alignment, wheel bearings, front brake pads, battery, starter.

Has dent in passenger side rear door. Does not affect door geometry - closing, sealing at all. Just the sheet metal of the door. Photo is supplied with this ad. I refrained from attempting to repair this myself because lots of people could do a lot better job. Most of it could be 'popped out' by a competent body tech.

The car runs great. But on occasion the clutch slips. This can be a dangerous situation if it happens when you are trying to dash across a road with oncoming cross-traffic. So please attend to replace the clutch before driving in traffic. I've driven it quite a distance with the clutch that way, but I have become gradually accustomed to it and know to avoid situations where it poses a danger. I've R&R'ed a Golf clutch with a MKII. It's not that hard. But you need a work area and 4 good jack stands. There are lots of youtube videos to show you how.
