    Passenger side low beam went and need to replace. Contrary to all posts I can find, it is NOT easy. Oh yes, the bulb itself is a snap to replace, but GETTING to it is a whole other story. The headlight assy has to come out all the way in order to get at the back side of the Valeo's that I...

    I have been handed a code which points to the thermostat housing heater on my w8 faulting. I have not put a meter on it yet but as usual do suspect it will require replacing. No problem but hey, $500 seems a bit much for something not really necessary. Has anyone had one (housing heater assy)...

    I just finished a PCV overhaul and ended up with two parts I didn't require. First is an intake manifold gasket: 058 129 717 D; Victor Reinz brand, German made. $8 incl. shipping. The other is the PCV housing 037 103-772 B that bolts onto the engine. I just need to unload it, so I'm willing...

    I replaced the passenger side exhaust with integrated cat with no problem, relatively easy. The driver's side is completely different. I checked and got different answers each time. I dropped the sub frame, but found I couldn't lower the tranny enough to get clearance to slide the...

    I just got my mother-in-law into a 2004 GLS and it needs a few cosmetic items. Please PM me or reply here if you have these parts and what you want for them via PayPal so I can get her new Silverstone ride fixed up. Thanks! For those of you that remember me from years back, hello! The S8 is...

    2001.5 Passat V-6 Right Side Catalytic Converter Assembly Replacement A month or so ago I noticed an exhaust leak coming from a crack in the right side catalytic converter assembly, in the flex connection, just forward of the rear cat. This was accompanied by a check engine light and code of...

    I got this when the plans called for a 6-speed swap into the b5. That fell through, and I am slowly divesting myself of the accumulated parts. This is a 6-speed shifter assy. The three rods and the shifter itself. The shifter is a neuspeed short shifter. All that is not included is the...

    Just curious because I never really noticed this before, but my 07 B6 drivers' side headlight is clear-to-bluish tint, the passenger side is more yellow. Its very noticeable at night. I would chock it up to the age of the car, but its at 16,000 miles now, and seems to have been well cared for...

    Yes, stupid move, but I was replacing the top left taillight in my B5.5, put the new bulb in the cluster, then put the cluster in the taillight assy when I heard a "clunk". Take out the cluster, and my taillight is missing. Which means it's inside the taiillight lens assy. How do I get the...

    For a 99 V6 ---- is the replacement straightforward? Or do you have to drop the whole engine to install it? This is the white turn signal with an amber panel. Thanx

    Can anyone provide the part number for the entire glove box light switch assembly for an '05 Passat? Mine is beyond broken - I smashed it into many little pieces when removing the glove box. Thanks!

    Curious: I saw a post on here about a week ago with someone wondering if they could put a W8 (3-lens) Assy. into a reg. 2-lens assy. Well, I've been wondering if I could fit a 2-lens into my 3-lens headlight. I like the look of the 2 better, plus i want to put a 2-filament bulb into it so the...
