Links to information, forums and online parts stores
A list of sites which I've found useful for information or buying parts.
Information, guides and resources
- Cabby Info - Great resource for Mk1 Golf Cabriolet information and problem troubleshooting.
- Chris Fix - Excellent videos on general DIY car maintenance.
- BrokeVW - Gearbox repair information.
Online parts shops
- VW Heritage - UK based seller, wide range of parts for many VWs.
- Mk1 Autohaus - US based seller, general good range of parts.
- Crazy Quiff's - UK based, great knowledge, worth seeing if you can request or track down parts.
- Rock Auto - US based, large spares wholesaler, large range of parts (for many cars).
- VWGolf1 - UK based store, good general range of parts.
- B and B Components - UK based, eBay store, wide range of parts for many cars.
- Amazon - Ok for lots of basic parts shared between models, including interior parts, switches, etc.
I used to include eBay on this list, and it's still good for some things, but to be honest sellers seem to include tags on their products for a variety of cars, inlcuding ones that the product won't actually fit. This makes searching for the right part a real pain.
