    Hey Guys, Just getting back to my fun with the cat removals on the 2.8 with CA/NY pre-cat emissions. So I noticed gear oil leaking from the center diff. seal and figured it was best to change out while level on stands before I lower the subframe and engine tilt for cat pipe removals. The...

    Ordered passenger CV axle (aftermarket). Length seems to be the same, but the OEM appears to be bigger diameter and hollow, vs. the new is small, solid. Should i use it? https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ncJH2vm3kbt4ny4rnU8mCSZI9TBAgdSi...

    Need to replace both CV axles of my 2006 Passat 2.0T FWD. Pulled both axles, but the 'cup' stays on the tranny. Is it held by a spring clip and needs to be 'yanked' out? https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iJ2eCi3inmeEZoYNiFizDgZwIhP2sZg6

    How much movement is normal for the output shaft? Video shows left/driver side. Passenger side was about the same. 2006 Passat 2.0T FWD auto https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L_IvFow_mrZh8I5xCIA0sjUf7weGms3_

    Hi All, I search this forum and googled but I haven't found the torque specs for my 2004 Passat GLX V6 2.8 FWD- Front Driver's CV Axle. I bought new bolts for the inner and a new 17mm bolt for the outer and I'd want to torque them down correctly. What I found this far in existing posts was...

    Bought the inner axle boot replacement kit to have it changed ON A RAXLE and for the hell of it it does not want to come off. I already destroyed the whole thing and it wone come off. Supposedly original caps are press on and should come off but this is not the original one so who the hell...

    I went to have my front axle shaft assemblies replaced. Dude was having a hell of a time removing the axles. After a few hours, he shows me a broken axle shaft - the rest of it is still in the engine (gear box??) Passenger side shaft - whatever connects to the gear box - is still stuck inside...

    I'm trying to get my family in pretty reliable and MPG friendly cars. The BHW powered passat can do all that once the BS is deleted and cam is checked and replaced if needed. I want all manual gearbox transmissions. The ZF left much to be desired and as these cars get older and so many second...

    Hi all, I replaced the CV axles and it shocked me to see the driver side inner axle joint was out of its joint. Would it have caused a bad accident or something? I drove like that about 2000 miles. The new Raxles feel great. Pictures attached.

    I'm looking for help in replacing my passenger side, REAR cv axle on a 2005 4motion. I have done lots of fronts on my 4 passats but never a rear. Thank you, Kevin

    I tried searching the forum on the torque specs for replacing the cv axles on a 2013 Passat. Can someone point me in the right direction, & is there a YouTube video by chance? Sent from my SM-N910V using Tapatalk

    Hey guys I just replaced my passenger side cv and now switching from first to second there is a vibration that I can feel in the floor and hear. It almost sounds like the axle is slipping in the trans between gears (if that’s possible). Any ideas as to what it could be?? As always thanks for...

    I need to replace the CV boot on my passenger b side axle. I have a spare driver's side axle. Can I use it in the passenger side? Are they the same length?

    Greetings everyone! Wondering where you all order parts when you need them? I used to go thru FCP Euro, but *man* are they getting expensive. Example, I need two front axle assemblies, and FCP wants $344/each! Front Left Front Right Sometimes I can find pretty decent parts on Amazon as...

    Have a 2005 Passat GLS Wagon, 1.8T AWM, front wheel drive, automatic trans, 165K miles, I purchased for my daughter. Had clicking on turns. CV boots broken. Axles do not look like VW axles and given the mileage that makes sense. No part # on them. Left drivers side went fine. Pulled the right...

    Hello! I have a 2007 Passat Wagon (2.0T, A/T). When we bought it, it had a bad front right wheel bearing, and there was this slight vibration/wiggle/shudder in the front end. I thought maybe the wheel bearing was that bad and was causing it. Replaced the bearing, noise is gone, shudder still...
