    2004 1.8 liter Passat- The brake light came on on my dashboard this morning. My little Christmas miracle this morning (and the result of the hangover I was experiencing from last night) was that I checked the power steering fluid instead of the brake fluid.

    2001.5 ATQ V6. I was removing the oil filter, and it was stuck. Finally got it off, but as I put pressure on it with the filter wrench, I saw the oil cooler rotate slightly, maybe 1/16th of a turn, or less. It seems to me that the oil cooler is screwed on or slides on and is held with a...
