    I'm more than likely going to be doing my wheel bearings (front) in the very near future. I have a shop press, but if anyone has done them before, could I kindly get the size of the insert I need for the press? I have various sizes, but would be up the creek if I didn't have the right one with...

    I bought my 2010 Passat 2.0T Passat wagon with about 32k miles and have been generally pleased with it, with the exception of this roaring noise from the front end. When I slow down, starting around 30mph and ending around 10mph, there is a pronounced roar from the front end. While it was...

    So i want to upgrade to forged rods. NOW, would if be safe to just pull the head off, remove the oil pan, and replace the rods and bearings just like that, or should i cut the crank and put oversized bearings? i really dont want to cut the crank if i can just drop in the rods. Opinions?

Just pulled the head and all the exhaust valves are bent and there is small marks on the pistons. Also found the...

    1999 Passat AEB Auto w/ 180k miles. I hear an odd metallic rasping coming from the alternator pulley. When I shut the car off, you can hear the noise better as it winds down. I'm led to believe that it is the alternator pulley bearings. Considering a remanufactured alternator runs about...
