you aren't going to learn a whole lot from this forum.

i would just start taking them apart. that's how i learned.

get a job at a parts store, you would be surprised how much you can learn in a year.

It's a beautiful site.


OR, you could just listen to us talk. We've got some smart brains here, just sit back, don't post, and read the posts by some of these guys;

ChrisV
VWHobo
DodgeRida67
Winsonian
Wally
(There was another guy, I'll edit this post later)

Just hang out in all the forums, but mostly focus on the repairs forum, that's where all the technical info comes out.

And, just have google ready in another pop-up window. Then, whenever somebody uses a term you don't know what is, enter it into google, and check out some sites for it. If you still can't find any good info on it, then come here and ask it.

Just do what they said and read, but dont post random crap unless you really think it can help. If you have questions just search the forums. Welcome aboard!
