    My 2006 Passat 3.6 4Motion has condensation inside the driver's side headlamp assembly. Also that headlamp has quit working (both high and low beams). Can I just replace the bulb(s) or do I need to replace the entire assembly due to the apparent seal failure? thanks!

    Got my oil done yesterday and they told me that I had condensation in the oil system and thats why I had like milky looking gunk on the dip stick and filler cap, they said it was most likely due to all the short trips I drive each day. Should I be worried?

    Uh-Oh! This all started with changing a flat; I removed the lug wrench from the back compartment (wagon) to change out a tire that had gone flat overnight. All was well on the way to the tire fixer place. Tire fixed free of charge (the ONLY way, IMO), I was back is biz. The following day I...
