    true dat...

    it seems that each day I drive the shifting is getting harder and harder... I think I'd better get to bottom of this asap b4 the tranny gets wrecked... or at least figure out what's wrong...

    ^^ his definitely sounds like the clutch isn't releasing, I'd put money on the slave cylinder as well.

    how expensive is that?? any dollar figure??

    since my mechanic skills are very slim, I may have a dumb question here:
    if the clutch isnt releasing, shouldnt it be easy to shift??
    and what makes these things break?? I dont think it's my shifting technique since I've been driving this since brand new for 5.5 yrs...
    or what's the normal life to that slave??

    normally they dont go. but if they bleed down the input shaft keeps spinning therefor making the shift harder.

    how hard is it to check the bleed?? if it's a quickie, I'll run to my car now and check...
    how many hrs of labour to replace that??

    anyone knows any good trusted VW mechanic around yonge & sheppard?? at least if the car has to stay, I can get home easily...

    i think it's really messed up...

    when I put on 1st gear when the engine off, then start the engine (brakes are released), the car started rolling by itself eventhough I'm still pressing the clutch all the way in...

    and that squeeking noise is getting louder with respect to rpm...

    i dont think I can even drive it home... I may have to get it towed... shit... i'm now in brampton area... I think I'm stuck to dealership now...

    between bramgate and martin grove, which dealer is better?? if anyone has any experience with them..

    thanks,

    Bleeding a clutch takes two people, a single wrench/socket(no clue what size it is though), and like 15 minutes of time. Just like bleeding brakes.

    Done. Should we be contacting the people we've given the go-ahead to or should we be relying on them to check in here? I'm done that work with my buddy, so I'm set to go pretty much anytime.

    well obviously with winter comin we can't do everything outside, plus daylight is runnin slim. i do have access to a heated garage from a fellow dub fanatic so i'm sure we could go there from time to time. stuff like the filter we could do outside cuz its only a 10 minute job. we might as well contact people to let them know when we canb do it. weekends are the best bet.

    Hey Luis, nometime next weekend is probably good for me (if that works for you too sootbomb). This weekend is shot.


    I'll be in touch next week about that turn signal stalk. We can bundle a few things when we do that. Your bumper R&R (even if it's a few weeks away), the stalk and anything else that's going on.

    I'll have to start PM'ing the other folks to see what they want to do...
