    So, what's the best practice with the captive "soft" steel crush washers on the banjo bolt if you have to crack 'em to do any work on the calipers? Snip 'em off and use copper crushers, or what do you recommend? I'm replacing my calipers with some rebuilts I got on Amazon. The bottom steel...

    Installed a re-manufactured Lucas caliper which came with new copper crush washers but it seems the washers on the existing line/banjo bolt can't be removed?! I tried re-using them and despite being torqued to the correct value (35 N-m) the banjo union now leaks which I discovered while priming...

    By Nick Dasko I have a confession, I have a serious crush on the W8 Passat. I don't have a need to own one but I would like to spend a week with one and get it out of my system. It is in my top three favourite VWs list from the crazy early 2000s when they sold the W12 Phaeton, the V10 diesel...

    So I'm doing my first oil change, and everything is going smoothly... up until the crush washer. The oil is all drained and I was about to put on the new crush washer but it won't thread onto the oil plug bolt. I already cut off the original copper one (it wasn't coming off and I read on another...

    VW oil pan gasket still in original VW packaging + an oil pan to turbo-oil-feed-tube gasket/crush washer. I know some members substitute the gasket with silicone adhesive caulk. But if you want an OEM VW hard gasket then I have one I will part with for $30 (that includes shipping costs paid by...

    Replacing my PS pump, fairly straight forward except that I find the original sealing washers on the pressure hose at the pump are aluminum, I can only find copper replacements. Will they be ok? My instincts say they should be better than the alum ones but I have found I can't assume anything...

    Anyone know where I can get a bag of CW's? VW wants $2.00 each! Thanks

    I have a 99 1.8t AEB. I'm replacing the turbo due to failure. I think there's been work done on the oil feed line by the previous owner. He cut a section out and put a rubber hose on it. I don't know why. There's also a ton of sludgy oil where the fitting meets the engine. My questions is...

    I just put in my frankenturbo kit. I did the recommended and replaced the oil lines. I wish I hadn't now. On the supply line, the banjo bolt at the oil filter I cannot get to seal. I had on one big washer and one small copper, got it started, leaking a fair amount of oil. Snugged it down a...

    First post, thanks for all the info I've gotten lurking. We bought my daughter a 2001 Passat as her first car. Seems to have a leak at the power steering hose that goes from the pump, across the passenger side valve cover, to another "hose" that then goes to the rack. The hose that is leaking...

    I've found various instructions on how to replace a leaky power steering hose, Burgaflex part number 4B 042 228 93A. It runs from the power steering pump to another hose that then goes to the rack; so I understand. I've found the hose online for about $80 but most of the tutorials say to make...

    I'm in a pinch. I don't have a new crush washer for the oil change tomorrow. I know that the crush washer was new at the last change...and that it's copper. Can I re-use it just this once? Flip it over? I just don't want a leak cuz I HATE causing leaks. It's an '03 V6 5 speed sedan...

    Everyone was amazed how a heavy car like the 3900lbs GTR with ONLY 473 BHP could beat a 3200lbs Corvette ZO6 with 505bhp. Well, the truth is that Japanese manufacturers understated the BHP because of gentleman's agreement not to get into a horsepower war with other Japanese car manufacturers...
