My mechanic just did a timing belt and water pump replacement on my 2000 1.8T. He said that it would be better to replace the serpentine belts for the alternator and a/c because the car is old. I tried looking for OEM belts but couldn't find any. Are 3rd party belts by Dayco or Duralast fine?

My mom's neighbor is a VW tech and I had him checking out a vac leak when he gave me good insight regarding the gearbox. He says, "never give it full throttle in 3rd". I don't know much more, but wanted to share this with you guys!

I know how to use the "manual mode" to put my car into 3rd gear but when i let the rpms down, then try to do a pull, it autoshifts into 2nd. I can shift it back down to 3rd however i want it to stay in 3rd. also, i dont want it to auto shift into 4th. I want to ping redline, or hold at max rpm.

The 4 position cabin fan switch does not work in in the first two positions. Neither the fan or AC is actuated.
When you advance the switch to the 3rd and 4th position, the fan and the AC function normally. Any idea of what this is and how to fix it?
I don't see how it could be a fuse issue...
