DIY/How To: Rebuild 2.1L VW Vanagon Waterboxer Adventure
Gear Heads this is just a conglomeration of my adventure rebuilding my 2.1L wasserboxer motor. It started out as only a head gasket job, which you can do without pulling the motor, but realized that the cylinder o-rings were bad plus one of the water jackets stuck to the head as I pulled it off, so no other option but to pull the whole motor. Took about 3 weeks on and off, a little everyday. This was first time pulling a VW with an automatic transmission, but no more difficult than a manual, in fact maybe a little easier. My radiator fan motor was bad so I tried rebuilding it but that failed, those bloody things are $350! plus the pressure power steering hose is leaking from the sensor, that damn thing is $339!! I spent about $400 total on the rebuild so to have to shell out $700 for a hose and fan motor is bloody crazy...
