I wanted to pass along this method so the rest of you don't follow in my footsteps and make the same mistake. The following procedure will...

    2003 1.8 with an AWM engine. Need the actual part name and/or number for the hose that goes from the outlet coolant flange on the back of the head to, I think, the heater core. Want to make sure I'm getting the exact right part. Thanks.

    I've looked all over, and I can't find anywhere that sells OEM (I don't want to lower my car) B5 wagon springs for the rear. I just installed my system in my 98 Passat sedan, and it seems like the back end is a bit lower (I'd guess the equipment is maybe 100lbs total?), so I was thinking wagon...

    Car specs: 2004 Passat 1.8t (AWM, B5) Can anyone recommend a specific scanner device (or part #) that will allow me perform readiness checks and transfer ECM/Immo II settings? The options on eBay and internet are seemingly endless and vary greatly in price - it's tough to know what will work...

    First post, I've read a million other posts on here and can't seem to find the same symptoms we're experiencing. We have a 99 Passat 1.8T. Had a refurb motor put in about 2 months ago.

    Hey, I knew my passenger side wheel bearing was failing but ignored it for a while. I also knew that the inner boot was broken of my cv axle. Just recently, besides the wob wob wob noise, started to make a type of rattling noise upon acceleration. It's the sound of someone throwing an empty can...

    New to the scene so please excuse my ignorance. In my local classifieds a "company" named Euroaddikts advertises regularly? They offer pretty good prices on LM reps but their website and phone system lack the polish of a solid company and not much on Google so I am hesitant to place an order...

    I recently bought a 2001.5 1.8T which had 123K on the odometer. I replaced all of the PCV system with new parts since I was getting a lot of fumes inside of the passenger compartment. I replaced the vacuum lines and the diverter valve with the 710N. The PO had replaced the expansion tank and...
