R reg Golf Mk 111 cabrio spares or repair
This would suit someone as a project. There are several things that need doing to the car to get it through its MOT, all of which will take time, and also some parts. But it has been a reliable car for me the last five years, and I would hate to see it scrapped. So, here goes:
R reg, soft top (nice quality material, had it re-covered a few years ago), just over 145,000 miles (not bad for its age). Engine is fine, except slight split on breather pipe.
Now for the MOT failure items:
n/s front lower ball joint dust cover needs replacing.
exhaust blow manifold area.
front discs/ rear pads and discs need replacing.
n/s front outer gaiter.
rear axle bushes need replacing (this may be the big item).
n/s trailing arm bushes worn.
Other items that you might want to do over time:
Some bodywork rust - nothing that would fail the MOT for a year or two, though.
Radio cassette n/w, also aerial needs replacing (if you use it, which I didn't)
Glove compartment catch broken (I did this a long while ago). Still have broken bit, including the lock barrel, so you won't have to replace that.
Driver's door barrel n/w - I've been unlocking it from the passenger side, and then unlocking it on the inside. You could just swap the driver/passenger door ones over.
Now the good news:
Rear wheel bearings replaced 3/7/18.
2 new tyres 4/2/19 (and other 2 and the spare in very good nick).
Am open to offers, as I know how much work this will take. Give me a ring on 01623 651117.
