    *sigh* It was supposed to be a simple front brake job. I stripped out the caliper carrier bolt hole on the front driver side. Anyone know what size helicoil I need to repair this? The bolt is fine. Went to tighten it and it just kept going and going. Backed it out and there were the filings...

    I'll be doing the timing belt, tensioner, idler pulleys, water pump, and thermostat. I may also be doing the crankshaft seal, or even the crankshaft sealing flange (if the oil is leaking from there). Should I just pull the lock carrier forward on the threaded rod tools? Or should I remove...

    Hello, A few months ago I pulled the lock carrier forward to replace the timing belt and clutch. All went well except for when I put the lock carrier back. The front of the engine was notably lower. I was able to force the carrier over the snub mount but the front end and hood are lower. The...

    For what its worth, I know there is always chatter about the VW lock carrier tool 3411 (the lollipop) and if you should use it, should buy it, should make your own, should steal someone's or just get a new car. Now having 3 Passats I figured I would invest and cruised the eBay files and found...

    Does anyone know what size driver I need to remove the front brake carrier on a B6 3.6 4mo wagon. Looks to be 4 large torx bolts? I've got a T45 which is way too small. Also when doing the rear brakes and retracting the EPB can I hook my battery charger up directly to the battery in the trunk...

    Hello, everybody! I have a 2008 VW Passat Wagon (I was told it's pretty similar to 2007 model). I am considering installing a 1.25" hitch and buying a rear bike carrier that is then installed on the hitch. However, I need to carry 4 bikes. The 1.25" hitch for this car is Class-I rated. The bike...

    Hi all. I had searched and searched for a way to carry some gear on the roof by using one of those old-time, plastic carriers (big plastic clamshell-type box). I realize VW doesn't "recommend it", but honestly, I don't accept that. I have no doubts that the cars roof structure is strong...

    Found the leak next to the coolant valve, but not sure what the part is called and what should be replaced. Made some videos, can you guys help with what the next step should be? A few other questions: 1) Why is the coolant liquid yellow? I thought it should be pink? GF had her coolant flushed...

    Can a 1999 Passat B5 support a Class II hitch? Any recommendations on places that install class II trailer hitch on a Passat B5 in Toronto (Canada) or Buffalo (US)? Anyone know of any disadvantages of using this type of trailer for a sports motorcycle? Lightweight Portable Motorcycle MX...

    Picked this carrier up on CL this fall, not gonna end up using it. Has knob and plate for attachment to Votex cross bars. I'd imagine its easy enough to adapt it to yakima or thule bars as well. Has lock cylinders but no keys. Both racks are unlocked. Was thinking $30 plus shipping OBO.

    Now that I have sold my Passat, I have no need for a few things. One of them is a set of OEM B5.5 Sedan Roof Rack Carrier Bars, w/keys & end caps (located in Alexandria, VA). They have only been used a couple times, so they are in perfect condition. Willing to ship, but local sale is...

    I've got an 01 B5 (older style) 2.8L GLX 4motion car and need a carrier bearing. I've checked the threads here and most of them are dated. Blauparts and 034 Motor Sports do not have this bearing. Any other ideas? Thanks!

    I'm not new to brake jobs and frozen bolts, but this one's got my number. I've hit it with propane (don't have MAPP) in all directions three times, soaked it in PB Blaster and used a variety of leverage points with various breaker bars: All to no avail. I've been trying for quite a few hours off...
