  1. mk2 - sloppy gearchange

    Hi Guys, Hoping you can help - going to view a mk2 valver soon, the guy tells me the gearchange is a bit sloppy, i.e it's easy to select reverse gear (no resistance, if you know what I mean) Is this an easy fix, or does it indicate a more serious problem with the box? Thanks in advance, B

  11. side rubbing strips on pre '88 mk2's

    ok thanks for the info guys, so can i just use a hot air gun to get 'em off?
