    Hello all. It has been a long time since I have posted on this forum regarding my 01 Passat. Recently, due to oil pressure issues, I have pulled the oil pan, installed a new pump and cleaned the pickup tube out, replaced the windage tray and also replaced the timing chain tensioner. After all...

    I was working on my 2003 Passat GLS 1.8T today to replace the valve cover gasket. I broke one of the elbow pipe during putting everything back. The pipe is near the heat shield. I think it is connected to the combi. The rubber elbow is so hardened that when I lifted the metal pipe it just broke...

    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

    I saw that ECS has a plug-and-play tuner on sale for $200 for the 2.0t. Seems like a good deal at 100 bucks off - it claims gains of +25 HP and +35 torque. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-dinan-parts/dinantronics-sport-performance-tuner/d440-0038~din/ Dinan is pretty big in the BMW tuning world...

    I finished my timing belt/tensioner/rollers/coolant pump job on my '05 A4, and man does it feel good after driving a worn-out F-150. It may not be as perfect as AndreasPassat's engines, but still took almost a month to complete, working on it very part-time. Yes I know this engine is B6, not...

    Due to the loss of my spare key I am going through the exercise of replacement. Here in New Zealand, my dealer has quoted me $496 for a new key, and on top another $80 for them to program it. Every time I deal with them I feel they are extorting me for everything they can. I have a 2003 W8...

    CCM FAULT - Can anyone explain central locking wiring diagrams to me? I have bought a car with a known CCM fault at a reasonable price. All water has been removed from the footwell, plenum drains have been unblocked and the interior has dried out. I have swapped the old CCM for a used part and...

    I’m feeling out if there is anyone on the forum that resides across the pond, and if they’re willing to help me find some parts that I simply have run out of options for sourcing. Any help is appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi guys. I had bent valves on my AWM 1.8T head, so had a local machine shop rebuild the head. The cost ended up being very close to the cost of a remanufactured head sold by Rock Auto. Looks like a decent deal at $1400, compared to the VW price of $2200. Looks like the Rock Auto offering has...

    I have a 1.8T model and was wondering what it is. Has anyone had smoke come from the exhaust. Pretty thick and usually worsens as you drive or give it more gas while driving.

    Remember the colored wax that used to be available? Many included what was called a "Chip-stick." I once had a Catalina Blue MK III Golf and the blue version of that stuff worked great. Well, at least until I washed the car, but you can't get chip-sticks anymore. Fast-forward 2 decades later...

    I'm looking for a mechanic or shop with experience replacing a timing belt on a V6 Passat. If anyone has a recommendation for a quality mechanic that I can trust in the Twin Cities, that would be great. I'm in Saint Paul so a mechanic on the Saint Paul side of the Metro would be a bonus. Has...
