  1. Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    Hi all, A quick question about the Ball joints on my B6 Passat. They look the same but in VW DB they have different part numbers (for left and right). Do you know if they are different or this is just VW complicating things? I noticed the same on ebay (2 different parts for left and right)...

    04 GLX V6 Passat 156K I know it's better to replace them all at once but do you think it's ok to replace only the control arms and ball Joints that show signs of wear? I used a kit from ECS on my 01 that included everything because they were all in really bad shape but on my 04 most seem to be...

  4. Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Hi, The video gives you a step by step tutorial how to replace the lower ball joint at the front axis of a Passat B3 35i. At this model, the ball joint is demountable from the wishbone. Thus the repair is relatively cheap and easy to do. The wishbone remains in the car, but some other parts...

    Hi, the video gives you a tutorial how to replace the ball bearing in an idler. This is necessary when the spare part isn't available anymore, i.e. for classic cars, or when the price of the idler is much higher than the price of the bearing: The video has a german soundtrack but English...

    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...

    Folks, I am a rookie but I am quickly learning that this portal is a awesome resource. I performed a query for 'bent rear axle' and did not find an answer that pertained to my situation so I a throwing myself at the proverbial mercy of the threads. I own a 2000 VW Passat GLS 1.8 Ltr L4 Gas...

    2000 Audi A4 Quattro 2.8 liter engine, manual transmission, 211K miles. I need to change an outer front CV joint. I've read so many horror stories about the pinch bolt that I've decided to detach the lower rear control arm. To do that I need to remove the ball joint. So I need to buy a ball...
  11. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I'm doing (well, started to do) my control arms this weekend and in advance read all the Control Arm/TRE replacement threads I could find, watched a bunch of videos, and thought I was ready to get going. I've been squirting PB Blaster on things for days in advance and knew to expect sore...

    So for around 4 hours now I've been thinking about how to get rid of ball joint stud to take my shock out to replace the springs. I tried everything, heating it up, pushing, hitting with hamer, lifting suspension to loosen up the pressure on the crew. NOTHING. IT'S UNMOVABLE. I have Haynes...

    Hey im looking to buy a 1999 VW Passat that needs front ball joints and a cv joint. The guy said he was driving and when the ball joint failed it pulled out the cv joint. My question is, how many front ball joints are there. Are there 2 uppers and 1 lower on each side or only 1 upper and 1...

  16. Wax On, Wax Off
    I am just about to finish detailing all the vehicles in my stable and when I got down to the last application of wax I noticed it was very watery, so much so I could wring the application pad out and it was damn near full of water. When I apply polishes and waxes I shake the hell out of them so...

    Back story, snow is in the forecast this week and I've been slacking on swapping my wheels. I went to do them yesterday and discovered my $50 craftsman floor jack can't keep it up anymore. :icon_eek: So I dropped the car off this morning at a tire place near my work and told them, "Use the lug...

    Had my drivers side upper ball joint replaced the other day. Mechanic had a hard time extracting the long thread. He said I needed a alignment. Steering wheel was cocked half way to the left and the wheel felt like it wanted to jump out of my hand when hitting pot-holes also, if I cut the...
