    It is really difficult to cut the top portion. I've managed to remove the other end post-cat and replace the band clamp, cut the side of the flex pipe closest to the cat with a sawzall, but cutting the other side is damn near impossible. I've managed a cut most of the way through but the sawzall...

    Hello, I had some work done on engine (timing belt and water pump) and when I got the car back the ABS and Steering wheel warning lights were lit up on the dash. I have VCDS and the codes that are showing are: 00285 - ABS Wheel Speed Sensor; Front Right (G45) 004 - No...

    2004 V6 with auto. Just replaced the passenger side axle this past weekend. About 2 weeks ago I had my steering wheel off to repair the LCD screen Since swapping my axle out my ESP light comes on immediately after I start to drive. I scanned the ABS to see if my speed sensor was the issue but...

    2000 1.8T ATW, manual, DBW. vcds shows the throttle angle is set to 5.6% with the engine off. It shows below the block that it should be between 0.2-4% I don't remember it ever being off like that. Is this some sign of problems with the throttle body? I did a TBA several times. it always comes...

    ********************** **PROBLEM SOLVED** Duh. I had the tie rods installed upside down. Not possible on other cars I have worked on, due to a tapered shaft, but these have straight shafts and can be installed either way. ********************** Something is going on in my front end and I can’t...

    I know they move the sensor out of the exhaust gas flow, but I need to better understand the science behind this changing the sensor readings.

    I was wondering if there is anything can be modified on a 2008 A4 in regards to steering angle. I know the GTI you can use the vagcom to change the angle but no know if this is available to do as well on the A4. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.:salute:

    Forgive the link but it's a good photo of what is going on with my brakes. I replaced them not too long ago and they are wearing at an angle from the bottom of the pad (closest to hub) up. is this normal or should I be replacing these...

    After my new Billy Boat exhaust install I was running with a CEL...001056 - Catalyst System; Bank 1: Efficiency Below Threshold P0420 - 002 - Lower Limit Exceeded - MIL ON. So after a little research I found out that I needed a Wayne Angle O2 spacer...installed it tonight...I'll let you know...

    so, this is exciting. b5.5 1.8T 5spd; for all those curious. earlier, my steering angle sensor had been reporting a -700 degree angle at dead center with a good alignment. the causes likely lead back to me replacing my steering rack earlier this year and maybe a thing or two that the dealership...

    Basically, I need to know the outer diameter of the circle, measured in mm, where the rings will sit in the headlight. By chance does anyone know this? :thumbup:

    What are folks seeing for throttle valve angle? On our 2001 B5 1.8T (AUG) is sits at 5.9 degrees after TBA and at startup. This seems high. After it warms up, it will drop to between 3.9 and 4.3 degrees. I saw another posting where the poster indicated his was something like 1.5 degrees...

    I have used the VAG-COM tool to get the following codes... Address 03: ABS Brakes 2 faults found: 00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85) 37-10 - Faulty - Intermittent 00778 - Steering Angle Sensor (G85) 37-00 0 Faulty Before I try and order this item I'd like to check...

    Done my reading on this, but just didn't fully comprehend the issue until today when I got the upper control arms out (still attached to the "strut" mounting plate)... If I replace one upper control arm at a time, can't I just mimic the angle of the old one to set and torque the new one into...

    :confused: Has anyone every replaced a steering angle sensor on a 2003 Passat? I know I would most likely have to have someone else calibrate it afterwards, but I could save a ton of $$ if I replaced the part myself.
