It costs anywhere from 40-50 in parts, so for it to be worth while for any vendor to mass produce it, you're looking at 60-70 for the harness.

Fluid doesn't need to be drained to drop the trans out. I only had maybe a few drops come out when I did mine. :confused:

Well if we knew that you moved the car with the dogbone mount disconnected, this whole thread wouldn't have blown up like it did.

Chances of this being true are very very slim. If you damaged the radiator, you'd have to go through the fan and shroud first, not to mention you'd really have to try to rock the engine that much.

He wouldn't be able to get the dogbone bolt back in if the engine shifted, or if he did, he would have mentioned how of a PIA it was to move the engine.

My guess is this is just a coincidence.

I would replace the TOB, cheaper than having to go back in there again because you cheaped out.

Not required to be replaced. They are only torqued to 10 lb-ft if I remember correctly, so not much stretching going on. I would, however, put a small amount of blue loctite on them. I replaced mine...

I live outside of Philly, but anytime I go to Philly, I typically stick to areas that are more touristy rather. I will say stay away from the zoo area, haha.

There are neighborhoods to stay out of just like any major city, but overall its not a dangerous place to be. Definitely go get a real cheese steak and climb up the art museum steps.

Document everything and contact the dealer and then VWOA. This is more of a safety concern than anything in my book.

Doubt anyone leases a car for 5 year or 60k miles, which is the powertrain warranty that remains unless you're TD1.

The gasket may be fine but being that the drains are clogged, water is just pooling up. I am going to take the door panel off myself and figure it out. Dealer techs are worthless.
