    Hi guys, several days ago I began noticing a crack on the right rear quarter panel just below the gas cap. The car has never been in an accident and the crack is slowing getting larger. I'm not sure if you can tell from the pictures, but it is also cracking along the bottom vertical edge which...

    It turns out I have a hairline crack in the upper oil pan. I found this out after replacing the cracked lower oil pan and still leaking oil like crazy. The lower pan replacement was within my skill and went smoothly (aside from missing the upper crack the first time...). It seems the upper...

    A couple days back, the wifey took a parking deck ramp a little too quickly and scraped the belly. By the next morning, there was a nice stream of oil on the garage floor, so I suspected the usual (same thing happened on my lowered B5 two years ago, but due to some scrap metal in the road). I...

    2002 AWM 1.8T @ 151K. I was replacing my front brake pads/ rotors when I noticed the below crack on the front driver side brake hose. The brake hose on the passenger side has a smaller crack in the same area. Here's are the pics. Crack is more visible in the first pic. Next I checked the...

    Just to end the weekend trip back from the woods, we stop to switch drivers and the key gets accidentally dropped between the driver seat and center console. Retrieval was an ordeal. Might just keep a coat hanger in the glove box from now on. I love this car.:rolleyes:

    Hey its been awhile since I posted anything on here but I'm in need of some advice now. I just recently changed my spark plugs, actually about 20 minutes ago and while I was trying to pry the clip up that's securing the ignition wires to the coil pack (was stuck in there pretty damn good) I put...

    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...

    Replace it which I don't have money for, use jb weld or actual welding? Will jb weld last for a couple months if I add a few layers and sand it off? What about welding? This is an example: this is almost what it looks like but mine is a bit smaller, should I try fixing it myself?

    Parked in a garage, went inside a grocery market and came back 15 minutes later to find this: :banghead: Upside—a new windshield means no more rock chip constellations/galaxies in bright sunlight! :driving: Downside—do I have to accept a pattern replacement from my insurance company...

    So oil started leaking in my 1999 v6 and I took it to the shop. When looking at it there is a 1 inch crack going from the top of the lower oil pan to the upper oil pan behind a bolt. I know the lower oil pan is fairly simple to replace but the upper one is a lot of labor and cost I've heard...

    I caught a stone in the windshield on the way home from work. It chipped the glass and caused a 3 1/2" crack:mad: Has anyone had any luck with windshield repair places, or should I be looking into getting a new windshield? BTW I don't have full coverage insurance:(

    Just bought an Ebay used turbo to rebuild, but noticed it has a small crack. Is this typical or should I send it back? Wastegate is in great condition but bearings definitely need work. John
