I had a similar issue and discovered that both grub screws below the bus on the shift rod were loose. I tightened them up, and the rattle was gone.

The wetness you are seeing comes from grease in the beam slowly seeping its liquid components over time. While I do see this on a lot of Volkswagens, the best thing you can do is routinely grease your ...

I think any bare blasted metal needs to be protected from corrosion. I've never taken a T4 exchanger apart, but if it were my car I would absolutely use VHT Flame-Proof roof stuff on the pipes if you ...

Ha! I like the bolted end cap solution.

The pipes are indeed straight through, which is why your Dremel-ministering to any flashings at the joints is appreciated. Go ahead and snake whatever won't ...

My heat exchangers are the later style and I didnít blast the inside because it was super rough unlike my other exhaust pipes so I couldnít be sure I was going to be able to remove all the media.
