As masochistic tendencies take over, I like working on my own vehicles.  No, REALLY.  While others will whip out the "Checkbook Wrench", I 'll not pay $60/hour labor + travel time to a trustworthy professional for simple stuff.  Plus, it's a chance to learn what makes this thing work.  Sometimes, I even get to buy a New Tool <drool>.  Here are some tips for some jobs I've done.

VW A3 Jetta (1995 GLS)

     Lock cylinder comes out on key?!

     Homemade plug wire boot pulling tool

     Loose door trim? Don't use pop rivets first.

    VR6 Coil Pack Arcing Fix (Thanks chris!)

     Fan switch too hot to touch?
