Volkswagen Rabbit, Scirocco, Jetta Repair Manual (Gasoline Engines): 1980-1984
This Volkswagen Rabbit, Scirocco, Jetta service manual covers 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983, and 1984 models with gasoline engines built on the "A1" platform. This manual includes both the American-made Rabbit and VW Pickup Truck, and the German-made Convertible, Jetta and Scirocco models built for sale in the United States and Canada.
In addition to comprehensive maintenance and repair on the 1.6 and 1.7 liter engines, there's a wealth of specific information on the bigger GTI 1.8 liter engine (which includes modified fuel injection, a special cylinder head, oversize valves, and much more), the Pickup Truck (which uses a different, leaf spring rear suspension), and the Convertible's top adjustment. Complete tune-up steps and emission control specifications for the fuel-injected and carbureted engines, including the electronic ignition systems found on many models, help ensure that your car will run at peak performance. There is also a comprehensive body repair section, with detailed body dimensions for the sedan, Cabriolet, Scirocco and Pickup.
Service to Volkswagen owners is of top priority to the Volkswagen organization and has always included the continuing development and introduction of new and expanded services. This manual has been prepared with the Volkswagen owner in mind. The aim throughout has been simplicity, clarity and completeness, with practical explanations, step-by-step procedures and accurate specifications.
