Hello thing family. I am in the process of rebuilding my front beam, and I know that I've seen complete rebuild threads on here before (2007-2008 timeframe I believe), but I've searched here for hours with nothing found yet. Can you fine folks please point me in the right direction?

Is this an acceptable option for a rebuild?

I'll tell you though, this pulling out all the crap within the beam is for the birds!

I'm needing to do a rebuild of my replacement beam too. I talked to Rick at "Bug Me Video" about it, and he said that their next video will be about Suspension work. He was hoping for this Spring, they've been pretty busy with outside work.

I like their videos, account they will show and tell if there is a non-VW tool ( read cheaper ) that you can use for a job.
