Mk2 Golf - Jetta - Corrado / Sourcing Mk2 rain gutter door seal

Hi all. I was wondering what people have found to be the best source of the door seal that is bonded to the rain gutter? Mine has perished and the car is leaking.

Common issue on these for waterpump to fail causing that noise, even mk6 ones go sub 100kms

Yes resetting sometimes works but not very often. We have done it on hundreds of mk5s and most need flap motors replacing

Supercheap has 25% off all products today only. Snagged 2 x 4 litre oil packs of DCT FS for around $150 delivered. Donít usually see this stuff on sale so worth the expense to get today. Just enter Save 25 at checkout.

That should work.  Almost all Mk2 and Mk3 4cyl, manual starters will work.

I have a Mk3 2L starter running my Mk1 which has a mk2 gearbox and flywheel.
General Discussion / Re: Engine builders - recommendations

I've used Taylor Automotive and HyTech Engines (Manukau), and rate both.

Re consumables, use FCPEuro mostly.  Bear in mind that an engine builder can often get the parts cheaper, faster and more accurately than you can (read: for a couple of bucks it's not always worth it).

How written off was the B5 RS4? They're a rare beast now.
