    I'm getting a clunking sound from my Passat when: 1) I make a hard turn 2) go over a bump with just my left wheel 3) Come to a hard stop I thought it might be the control arm, because I had to have one replaced a while ago. I took it to a mechanic to get it diagnosed, but the only thing he...
  3. The Showroom
    I ended up selling my passat a few years ago to try and "expand my horizons" which included a ford escape (big mistake) and an is300. I won't even discuss the escape but the is was alright just didn't have the feel I was looking for. In the end of all this I picked up an 03 a4 avant.

    1.8 t ATW. I tried and tried no luck. I gave up. Is this bolt absolutey essential??? I had it almost all the way in, but it definitely felt cross threaded so I backed it out. The bracket itself has a lot of bolts holding it down. Someone make me feel better.

    Hello, so I recently purchased a 2000 vw passat and the axles were bad so I had to replace them. On the left side of the car the spindle around the pinch bolt that secured the control arms was already cut and that bolt came out with no problem. But on the other side the bolt wouldn't come out so...

    2008 passat fan going nuts I have a 2008 passat 2.0t and recently it overheated when stopped in traffic. I tried the a/c to see if the fan would come on and sometimes it did but sometimes it didn't. There are no codes showing up to indicate the problem. The car can heat up to over 200 and...
