  9. Severe back problems and old age (loosing my self confidence) are main reason. I'm already a bag of nerves that VW have f***ked something up (like my a/c). Booked into independent in 2.5 weeks time. <_< seatkid what part of uk are you in i did my thermostat and changed the sump gasket in about 4/1/2 hours all that would be extra to fitting a pump is the ring of pump bolts and a gasket
  10. just drop off the aux belt first may still be aircon pump clutch
  11. Seatkid alot of what you describe could be clutch related do you get the noise with your foot on the clutch not sure on mk1 is it dual mass flywheel just a thought if you move the cam belt cover out a bit there is a roller on the top of mine buy mine is a 110bhp auto reg 2000 i tried to pm you but say you can.t recieve pms??

  13. just extend the wiring but solder the wires and use electrical srinkwrap on them job done
  14. did mine with a pair of mole-grips and a long socket on a extension bar it's a PITA to get the belt back on mine being auto as well the roller on mine has some wear on it bearing is ok but the plastic roller is worn looks like it's glued to the bearing so but a bit of bearing seal on the edges so it ran into edge of the roller left over night seems solid now also my 110bhp 2000 mk1 has the over run clutch on the alternator
