    In scraping the slush off the rocker panels, I broke off that little access panel that you open to jack up the vehicle. The plastic pivot-point clips broke beyond saving. Does anyone know where I could find such an odd part as this ?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has member access to coparts. Reason being I needed to get a parts car to fix my own car up with (Lexus), and just having to get a broker would add a lot of expense to the amount I have. Thanks for your time. Wmj

    Good afternoon all I am installing a USB charge port in place of my cigarette lighter. Began the install last night, My original plan is to go through the firewall and direct to the battery. But I was wondering if there is a point inside the car that I can tap into a solid "always ON" 12v...

    Hey guys, Just went through the nightmare of changing the half moon seal and gasket on the ATQ passenger's side, hopefully it doesn't leak because I had little to no room to get things done even though tool 3366 had the chain slackened. Now I'm trying to do the cam tensioner cap on this side...

    So have had a P0106 code for awhile and finally got around to replacing the barometric pressure sensor today. Not so hard to do. Removed the air filter assembly, then the air intake hose, and then the throttle body. A few electrical disconnects along the way and I had access to the pressure...

    I had to re-register using a different name because I have yet to receive an email with a temporary password so I can log in and change my old one. I've been locked out of my old account and have sent numerous messages to the site administrator with no replies. Now I can't even post a message...

    Hi everyone, I am in the process of converting the engine and transmission in an old east-German Van (Barkas) from a crappy 2-stroke to the 1.8T from a VW Passat. I've got the donor car sitting ready to be slaughtered, it's from 1998 and travelled 250k kilometers. Since I'll have the block...

    Hello there, This might be something like a follow-up from this thread but in a more specific matter. According to VCDS, the MFL MFSW relays can be recoded the following ways: As I'm stuck right now, my relay refuses all the codings except the 00008 which makes the phone button on the left...

    Hi all - I am working on the pax side bank. I managed to remove all cam caps and the camshafts, but the T30 fastener on cap 7 is going to be impossible to torque back down properly due to the proximity to the body metal. I just about ruined the bolt extracting. The gap is too small for a T30 bit...

    Hello B6ers! My lumbar support mechanism is not working. I can hear the motor whine, but it does not seem to be moving anything. Perhaps the cable (or whatever) that connects the motor to the lumbar mechanism is broken. Short of cutting off the leatherette fabric, does anyone have ideas on how I...

    I need to replace the coolant flange on the rear of the head. This is on an 01 1.8t AWM car. Has anyone removed the 2 transmission mount bolts and lifted the rear of the trans to allow easier access to this flange? I do have the car in "Service mode" so I don't have to worry about hitting...

    I need to change the dreaded coolant flange on an 01 Passat AWM. Has anyone removed the transmission mount bolts & jacked the rear of the tranny up to give more access to the rear of the head?

    Post 3. I have had a 2001 2.8L V6 5 speed GLX for about 5 years. Love my car, however Ive had some issues due to my own human error. After months of living with the issues I have arrived here to gain some insight and resolve my problems. I am going to navigate the site to try and find some...
