    I have a pair of OEM axles out of a B5.5 Passat. These will work on any B5.5 automatic drivetrain. The boots are good but would recommend installing new outer boots and swap out the outer joints (left-right, right-left) for a brand new feel. Asking $70.00 plus shipping for the pair. Located...

    I just had axles replaced on my passat from non-dealer. (They had gotten pretty bad, cv boots were torn and were clacking whenever I turned the car). When I picked up the car, I noticed that whenever I have almost reached a complete stop, the brakes give a little rumble/grumble sound, and I...

    Passat info: Year 2003, 1.8T, A/T, AWM, sedan. For this particular model. Does anybody know if the cv axles (left and right) are interchangeable and if not what's the difference between them. Maybe a silly question but a want to know. The OEM part #s differ usually for one number and some...

    Are the axles on the B5.5 identical on both sides? Just eyeballing them looks like they are different lengths. I see there are 2 part #s 8D0407451LX LEFT 8D0407452LX RIGHT Are the drive shaft bolts reusable? I need to order the right hand side axle for a RHD (driver's side) car. The...

    Hi there ppl, I know many people recommend higher quality axles as a replacement over new china or reman napa style axles. A few people also mentioned that junk yard axles can be good finds too. While there is a diy yard near me, I had another idea. I was just wondering if it is a viable...

    I'm not sure where else to turn with this dillemma I'm having. After recently installing coilover sleeves on the front and rear, I'm very annoyed to find out that the rear axles get in the way of the spring perches/adjusting collars. PZ has helped me out quite a bit with this by telling me how...

    So i got new axles from Oriley, and had them installed, the VW specialty said they went in no prob ext. On the way home, when braking at low speeds, the abs kicks on as if i was to hit some ice and slide. I made a U-turn and went back to the shop he felt it and he scanned it. The weird thing...

    So I recently got my CV boot repaired by a local mechanic. This was the second time in 6 months that I have had to take it in. The mechanic messed up my ABS the first time and refused to fix it since he could not scan the car (Aftermarket radio problem) to see where the ABS was acting up. I told...

    So I just picked up both reman axles from auto zone today after hunting for OEM axles. I think I may have lucked out. Both axles have VW/Audi markings and after looking at ECS comparing pictures I believe them to be OE's. Can anyone just verify that they are indeed OEM rebuilds?

    They could be in a trillion pieces for all I care. I just need two genuine vw axles to use as cores as my car apparently has duralast axles and the company I'm buying new axles from won't accept them. The closer to 06787 the better. Thanks!

    I have a set of brand new B5 axles for a manual. I bought them hoping they would fit my auto, but they are different lengths. Brand new in the box. Pick up only $50 for both. Cost over $100 new. In Delaware

    Good day, all. I know it's been posted but I've been through the threads and I can't find what I'm looking for. About a year ago, i started replacing suspension parts on a 99 Passat wagon I bought from a guy down the road. That said, I had never done any of this kind of work before, but I...

    I'm at like 24.5 from top of the fender to the ground. After about 15k at that height my axles went bye bye (107,000 miles on odometer). So I figured "Hey I'll just run cheap China crap axles from NAPA auto parts that includes a 3 year warranty." Well that was a horrible horrible HORRIBLE...

    These were axles I bought for my wife's '01 V6 GLS. They are the cheaper axles from Autozone. I personally don't like buying this kind of stuff from the local stores, but it was for my wife and she drives like a teenager behind the wheel for the first time. Scared and slow. Honestly, I have a...

    I've done a lot of searching around the internet and have been coming up short. Can someone give me an overview on which CV axles were used on which models and when? Here's the background: I just swapped my 2005 Passat transmission from a 01V GMR tiptronic auto to a 012 DUK 5 speed manual. My...

    During my clutch work we discovered that the outboard boot of my pass. side axle (original factory) has split and the inboard boot of the driver side (Raxles replacement 18,000 mi. ago) is about to split. I see a lot of good Raxles reviews but I would have expected better than 3 yrs/18k mi...

    I only say Axles again because it gets talked about so much. A little bit about my car: B5.5 S4 FCP Control Arms ST Coilovers (1/2 inch between tire and fender) Has any one had good results with FCP Grotons Axles? Company is Empi? How about Empire? or OP? I know that Raxles is where its at...
