This manual covers the Volkswagen Fox from 1987 to 1989, including Wagon and Sport. This manual is specifically written to cover USA and Canadian models only.
For the Volkswagen owner with mechanical skills and for independent garages, this manual gives all the specifications and procedures that were available in an authorized Volkswagen service department as this manual went to press. In addition, the Volkswagen owner who has no intention of working on his or her car may find that reading and owning this manual will make it possible to discuss repairs intelligently with a professional automotive technician.
The Volkswagen owner intending to do maintenance and repairs should have a set of metric wrenches and sockets, a torque wrench, screwdrivers, and feeler gauges since these basic hand tools will be used in accomplishing a majority of the repairs described in this manual. Usually, the text will note when a repair requires special tools.
This manual has been prepared from the repair information that the Volkswagen organization provides to its own factory-trained technicians and has been developed primarily with the professional automotive technician in mind. The aim throughout has been clarity and completeness with step-by-step procedures and accurate specifications.
