Place it in a spot you can access from the drivers seat so you will actually use it is my recommendation.

Replaced the axle and the noise went away. Went back together a lot easier than it was taking it apart. All good for about 100 miles until the timing belt decided to snap.....Started another thread. ...

FWIW, here's a ground tree and wiring on a more modern (2012) VW...we'll see in 20 years if it needs to be scrubbed and polished.

Maybe massage the boots to try to push the grease in them up into the joint. If you get lucky that may help for a little while.

Got the aluminum strips onto the shortened jalousie. Notice the curved pieces on the far side of the jalousie. That follows the shape of the rear angle and curve.

Glued the aluminum strips on to the full size jalousie to replicate the glass dimensions. After the glue sets I will radius the corners.
