    Does anyone know the parts code number for the 2 white o-rings on the wiring harness plug? New parts person at dealship. Big sigh.

    Does anyone have a picture of the lower valve body that shows where the colour coded orifices go? I cannot find my rebuild manual and when I pulled the plate off I had missed resetting some of the offices. As a result some stuck to the plate. Big sigh here.

    The lines from the transmission to the cooler in the radiator were damaged. They were cut where they cross under the radiator. I took off the lines before marking which one goes where on the transmission. I assume that it would make a difference as to where the fluid enters the cooler? Any...

    Hi, I have a 2005 1.8t 4motion passat that I recently had a timing belt break on. I was cruising along smooth when suddenly the timing belt snapped and instantly bent all my valves. I got the thing home and pulled the head, did a valve job and got it back in without any major issues. When I...

    I just bought this car and got it running and it is making a terrible noise, it sounds like it is coming from the exhaust or intake on the right side of the engine. I have attached the link to the video in hopes that someone can identify the noise. I also have a plug left over that i cant find...

    Hey Guys, I'm finishing a timing belt and everything else "while I'm there" project and I've got a snub nose mount question. Obviously, the OEM mount was old and destroyed, so I bought the rubber version and it doesn't touch the sides in the opening on the front clip. Probably an 1/8" clear...

    I have a cracked tail light and purchased a used replacement. For the love of German engineering do I need to remove the shelf and Monsoon amplifier to get to one of the nuts? If so, how do I get to all the screws as they appear to be in hard to reach places without removing the interior trim? I...

    This has slowly been getting worse since I first noticed it more than 9 months ago. During acceleration, I hear and feel a "thunk" similar to running over a pothole coming from the front wheels. Often it happens on one side then quickly on the other. Usually this happens exactly once until I get...

    Good morning everyone. What would be a reasonable price for a 2005 Passat TDI with about 175k on the clock and a recent manual swap done? I want to sell mine but am not sure what a fair price would be. I saw a golf tdi locally the other day, 200k miles and automatic asking price $4900 and...

    So I've got a weird braking scenario. When braking hard (not threshold braking, but hard braking) the ABS engages in the final 5-10 ft of a stop. The pedal has good feel until the moment that ABS kicks in (ie pedal gets softer when ABS engages and then hardens back up), its not a dangerous...

    I have a 2005 tdi wagon. Like many people, my door handle stopped opening from the outside. I read online that the mechanism gets caught and by slamming the door and/or fiddling with the child safety lock, you can get the piece to pop back into place without taking the door apart. I tried this...

    Hi I have a misfire issue. The car will start but only just run/Idle. I have changed the Plugs, Leads, and ignition coil. It is no better. Where should I start next? Why would it be all in the one bank of cylinders? (1-2-3) I have error codes in the following order. P0300 Random Misfire P0491...

    Hi I have a 2005 1.8T GLS Wagon that just stopped running yesterday. My wife and I are moving about 2 hours away and were driving to a storage unit. I had noticed it started having trouble accelerating about half an hour before we arrived, and when I put it in park at the storage unit the...

    Good afternoon - Passat threw up a code to change the Cam Chain Tensioner, so I did. Now I have a Cyl 1 misfire. Swapped plug and coil from Cyl 2 but no change in how it ran or code. Measured power at each injector with the engine running and had signs of voltage on 2,3 & 4 but nothing...
