    04 Passat with the single CD and tape player. All the hi-range speakers work but sound gritty. The lower speakers in the doors fade on and off. The drivers speaker works, doesn't fade on and off but sounds torn. I have tried adjusting the fade and left and right and doesn't seem to fix...

    Installed a re-manufactured Lucas caliper which came with new copper crush washers but it seems the washers on the existing line/banjo bolt can't be removed?! I tried re-using them and despite being torqued to the correct value (35 N-m) the banjo union now leaks which I discovered while priming...

    Bought some of the ones off ebay and they are junk quality, and every seller seems to be selling the same ones. Anything out there that isn't? Stock adjusters are froze and I'm not sure how they would come out, otherwise I may consider swapping over the adjusters and lenses. I'm doing my own...

    Is there some reason cars are designed the way they are, instead of being easy to repair?

    Someone backed into my car, so now is as good a time as any to replace the headlights. I used to have a great set of I think DEPO ones on my 97 VR6, but now all sites are flooded with these cheap headlight assemblies that are of poor quality, cheap plastic in place of metal and apparently most...

    Hi guys, So for the past year or so, my focus has been on fixing my car's rough idling problems, which it's had since I bought it. Today, I finally got around to tracking down what I thought was a vacuum leak. After a few hours of fiddling, I found out it was the fuel supply line (the one...

    Hello, My a/c is not blowing cold. I checked the system and I went to the a/c shop, they recharged the system. Compressor starts and then it becomes tricky. On other Passat I checked, all a/c pipes get cold right away and stay cold as long as the a/c works. On this vehicle, all pipes become...

    Every time I go to use my turn signal, they just stay lit up but don't blink. They used to only do that every rare once in a while, but now they never blink and it's become pointless to even attempt to use them. I'm just waiting to get a ticket for failure to use a turn signal. Has anyone...

    I have no sound coming from the rear speakers. Front speakers are working great. If I fade all the way to the rear I hear some "noise" coming from the right back door tweeter. There is the black box (amp?) in the trunk. If anyone has any advice, please let me know.

    Just recently blacked out my taillights (which looks amazing by the way) put everything back together and I noticed, when I turn my lights on I have no light at all in the taillights coming on. All the bulbs are good. My turn signals still work as well as my brake lights. But I can't figure out...

    I've been searching the net looking for a decent pair of tail lights that aren't stock. However, I can't seem to any that interest me. Can some one please give me some good mod sites that might have a decent selection to choose from?

    now I haven't seen the passat in person yet, but how much in the side panels the little raised panel bumpers aren't level (or don't look level in pictures) is this supposed to make it look more aggresive? but then when you look at the lines to the sides of the front bumper it doesn't connect...
