    [B5.5 V6 FWD GLX ] So basically I've have had a exhaust leak for like 3 months now, the leak wasn't very loud until about 2 weeks ago. The car had a code and I replaced teh maf and it went away. Its throwing codes for 02 sensors as of now, and after putting the car on a lift, I was able to...

    So, I am driving through the rain and sleet yesterday and this guy flashes me. He drives up at the next traffic light, and tells me both my tail lights are out. (Thanks, by the way, I prefer to be told by a friendly stranger than a car with flashing red and blue lights ... :-)). I can't say for...

    Alright, guys. I've gotten a lot of really good help from this site. You guys rock. I'm new to these cars. I have a 2001 Passat 4motion V6 station wagon. I replaced both front wheel bearings and something about how I put the ABS sensors back in caused them to be crushed by the tone rings on the...

    I have a 2007 20.T Passat, and my daughter recently ran the nose over one of those parking lot bumpers. It tore off the undertray and messed up the side skirts a bit, no big deal. But it also bent the shaft on the auxiliary radiator fan motor, such that the fan jammed against the shroud and...

    I am waiting for my wagon to be towed to the house. I have a 2003, 1.8t, 5 speed wagon with 170K. Wife was driving to Wal-Mart, stopped at stop sign and shifted into gear and nothing, wouldn't go, no grinding of gears, nothing. I went down to check it out, clutch pedal still has some...

    Toward the front on the molding below the doors, they're square-shaped and gone. I'll check with VW and see if they forgot to put them back on, but if that's not the case, what are these pieces actually called, and how much to get new ones?

    Stupid is as stupid does. I hit a 12" puddle of water at 50mph. Two nights later again, normally one learns. Anyway, I now have this lovely clunk at low speeds either braking or accelerating. Took a look today and have found a few issues. Right CV boot has torn right through, left started to...

    2001.5 (B5.5) GLX V6, when engine is running and I disengage the parking brake, the DRL won't turn on. I switch on my low beam and both bulbs are working. I was thinking it would be the fuse, went to check the fuse box but there is no DRL shown anywhere in there. There was "Parking" designated...

    Greetings all. My wife has a 2012 Passat SE. We woke to a dead battery. I took the old one out and it tested as "bad" at Autozone. I bought the replacement they had listed. I put the new battery in, connected the positive terminal, then the negative and as soon as the negative touches, the horn...

    I'll be replacing both my Cam Chain Tensioners on the V6 ATQ and I've read (somewhere ?) that you do and also that you don't need to lock the cams. I don't want to remove the timing belt. If I do need it, anything wrong with the cheaper Ebay ones or should I buy EC$? Cheers & thanks for your...

    I recently bought this car from a friend. And has been fixing it. It wasn't driven for 2 years. I drove it a few times and there was a grinding noise from nearly all the wheels. So today I took out both back tires and checked the brake pads and they have at least half life left. They are all...
