I would like a mobile version of the FMBC site, even if it meant losing ALL data and starting over.

Yes, it is uber important.

No, leave it as is please.

I am on the fence.

Hi! My name is Carol. I am looking for a reliable and reasonably priced VW mechanic in the Savannah GA area. I have a 1971 bus that has dead AZ tags and a salvage title. I need to have it inspected in order to license it. To pass inspection it needs to have the blinkers fixed, neither works, they did in the beginning (4years ago) then, something happened and they stopped. Need to make sure the brake lights are good too. My horn needs to work and my right windshield wipers needs some minor stuff done to it. I haven't been able to drive it for almost 2 years but she runs well, just needs to get rolling again. Anyone know where I can find help? I'm use to having my bus family in Tucson around and never having her idle for long but, I don't personally know anyone on the east coast. Once I get her rolling, I hope to meet some of you folks at some of the camping trips in the future !

If i have to replace my fridge in the 85 Vanagon, any ideas, because that Dometic RM 182 B is no longer manufactured, and the replacements are slightly different dimensions. HELP!

working on a 62 bug 6V. hot battery. almost new starter. Starter drags, not getting enough voltage from switch. Thinking of going the ford booster relay but not sure how to go about it. Any ideas or better suggestions?

Ive seen 2 different sized bushings for the starter. It doesnt take much slop to adversely affect the starter

I just installed a simple 4 pin relay in my Jetta and it worked great. Starter can now get a good 12V without having to travel through 10 miles of extra wire.
