    As the title says. I am looking for some fast insight on swapping W8 front brakes onto my 98 GLS V6 5speed FWD. I will get into the reason for this at another time. I used to have this information but for the life of me I can't find it now. Of course. :thumbdown As far as I know, all I need is...

    Calling out to Phoenix and surrounding area(s) residents. I now have (2) locations of residence, WI and recently in Phoenix. Problem is, I'm in WI for a while and my wife is down in Phoenix with her Passat GLX. All of a sudden the car is burning through coolant, I don't know if it's leaking out...

    Hey all, from Virginia here. Short version of a long story... My first car was a 1974 SuperBeetle. Got it in non-running form when I was 14. My dad made me buy it myself, and said I had to fix it if I expected to have wheels when I got my license. Best education ever. Since then I've had...

    I really had a question about a camshaft that's extremely hard to handcrank after redoing the chain tensioner. I didn't know if it'd be a good idea to post that question here or not, but it's happening. Here's the skinny: After getting the rebuilt head back from the machine shop ($450 to...

    Good evening one and all! I pulled the trigger on a '97 Passat GLX VR6 today. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. Always been a fan of the Jetta's and Golf's but have never actually owned one before. Doubt I'm allowed to post pics yet, seeing as this is post #3 for me? Anyway, the...

    In 15 years that I own my Passat I have not replaced a single check valve yet. Increasingly, I am getting convinced that a preventive maintenance/replacement of dying check valves may be very beneficial. It would be helpful for every one to compose a comprehensive list of check valves possibly...

    My daughter calls me in the middle of the night. "Daddy? I need help. The car is stuck in the road and cars are beeping. The engine temperature (she means tach lol) goes up when I step on the gas, but it won't move. Yes, it's in drive." I get up to help her push it to the side of the road...

    Hey all, been awhile... My car rolled 205k a couple days ago and it is starting to have its share of problems. None of them prohibit the car from being driven, however, they are extremely annoying. My trunk does not latch anymore, whitch causes the warning ding to go off every other second. 3...

    My cousin just moved to Panama City Beach and already ran into her first headache on her 2000 VW Passat (V6). She's short on money after the move, has a job interview lined up, and is really just looking for help with a water pump install. If there is anyone in the area who thinks they can...

    I have been able to locate dash parts online except for the passenger front dash that surrounds the glove box and goes over the climate control/radio section... Parts diagrams were infuriating - showed everything but that. :mad: What is the part number and what do you call this part? Hoping...

    Hey guys, In about 7 hours, my family and I are hoping to hit the road for a 1K mile round trip in my wife's 210K 2000 Passat. B/c the temp has been wonky the last 12 months or so (usually hovers around 110 on the gauge), I decided to install a new coolant temp sensor and thermostat this...
