Fixed the air ride today on the 2005SLE.
Found two problems.
The level sensor was bad.
Replaced it with one I got from Andrew.(thanks Andrew)
Also had 2 cuts in the air line on the drivers side.
They were caused by rubbing up against the inner plastic wheel well.
Had an air line kit and spliced in a new line.
Nice to have air shocks working again.
What a big difference how it rides now.

Installed Dorman aluminum coolant elbows with GM OEM O-rings on the 2000SLE.
Took off the belt,alternator and the ICM for easy access.
Took about 1-1/2 hours start to finish.

Passat got some attention today. Fixed the window regulator, got the plate lights working, and most importantly got that rear caliper replaced so the parking brake works again. No more car trying to roll away on me anymore.

So yesterday the coolant flange on the VW decided it didn’t want to flange the coolant anymore. So had to replace it in the rain last night. That was fun.

Year and Trim: 2000 SLE Saved from the scrapyard.
broke the passenger door handle ( outside ) trying to open it up after releasing it from its icy sarcophagus and then the door wouldn't latch shut. Warmed up the car for an hour and it finally latched, only to find all the doors locked and the car running....Fortunately it was at home and I have an extra key. Went to open up the other doors and then the passenger rear wouldn't latch shut ( didn't break the handle though ). Remembered the door locking itself, actuated the lock on the inside of the door and it worked as usual again. So, lesson learned? Don't wash your car in the winter when it's going to fall well below zero, make sure you're super careful when it snows, melts and freezes your car, especially on the side that got all the wet snow. AND IF you can't get the door to latch shut, try manually locking and unlocking the door first to see if you can unjam the mechanism.

First post of 2019 in this thread!

Changed Penny's oil yesterday. Car is nearing 185k miles.

Also changed the rear motor mount. Definitely quite the journey if you're doing it in your garage. Put the car on ramps, lowered the rear of the subframe, and got that sucker out.
