    Hey everyone, I recently discovered an exhaust leak that turned out to be a broken v-band clamp on the stock turbo from my 2010 2.0T TSI engine. I've attached a picture of the broken one, and a new one that I found online (after much searching...). VW do not list this as an individual part...

    I lost this clamp, so the hose connecting to the air filter box is loose. Does anyone know the exact size or part number for this clamp? BTW, I believe this is for the secondary air injection, am I correct?

    I bought a kit for inner cv joint ('00 V6, manual) which came with a clamp "oetiker 97". It seemed a little bit large but I proceeded. Now it fell off. It seems like VW part has to be "93.5", which might be oetiker 16700088. I cannot find a small amount of those clamps (or one step up...

    I spent hours under the car replacing all the control arms, and I couldn't help noticing all the grease coming out around the CV boot on my axle. This is an axle I picked up from Autozone about a year ago. It is not torn, there are no holes. But it seems way to much grease is getting out and...

    Hi, I have a 2.8 V6 4motion. Can anyone tell where I should clamp the negative clamp on my battery booster, space in the engine bay is limited. I've been clamping it to the negative battery post but I recently read this is dangerous as the battery has gasses that can explode :ambulance: if it...

    I need to remove the coolant hose that runs from the reserve coolant tank above the engine to the engine block. I need to get this out of the way in order to work on the valve cover gasket. Part of the problem is that it is a pain to get at and there is a compression type clamp that holds the...

    Hi Guys, Dumb question, I know...but before I go and accidentally cut my fuel line on my 2002 wagon, does anyone have a recommendation on how to release the fuel filter clamps? I read some posts here where it's admitted it's a little tough and to be careful when cutting these off. I've tried...

    Question says it all. I disconnected the rear brake line at the caliper by this "Banjo" Clamp (I think it is called) and the thing is leaking more than I want. I don't know how this fitting works, is it just put a plug in the little hole at the bottom of the bolt? It can't be...

    What kind of crimp too do you guys use to secure these clamps into place? Thanks.

    I'm getting billowing white smoke on cold startup, and think it's coming from the turbo. Can I clamp the coolant inlet hose on a cold start, to starve the turbo for a moment and stop the smoke? If so, does the coolant flow out of the radiator on the top or bottom?

    a few month after replacing the CV boots and repacking grease, I notice that the grease seeps out very so slowly. Both side are seeping. I plan to wipe them clean and try to clamp tighter; then wait and see what happens next. Any suggestion or advice? In addition, should I be worried about...

    Yesterday when I started my car it had gone from being its reasonably quiet self, to making a loud fart can sound. I had already replaced the infamous flex tube, but this wasn't the same sound as it could be heard at idle and had a backfire type of sound when shifting. By the end of the day I...

    As per above. Does anyone know the size of the clamps required when replacing the single use clamps on the N75 Valve hoses?

    So, I've got the CV apart and have the new boot in place. Then I put the small boot clamp in place. I can't for the life of me get the thing latched to crimp it. I've tried using pliers but it doesn't go far enough to latch it. If I latch it first, then I can't get it into place, it's too...

    Hey guys... OK so I just got finished replacing my fuel filter. Boy was the gas that came out of it dirty. Almost black! I assume it was likely never changed in the life of the car. I'm at 100k miles right now, got it at 70k. Figured I've had it for 30,000 miles and I should probably do it...
