    I should start by saying, the shop is replacing the tire free of charge to me, so I'm not mad. They're making it right, I'm just wondering how it happened. I found a small bolt in my tire this morning.Took it to shop #1, they looked it over and said they could patch it but were busy so I went...

    This isn't my car, but I'm helping a friend. I don't know any of the history of the car. I got a call today from a friend, she said her serpentine belt was broken.

    I had taken out the MAF over the weekend to clean it. Apparently, I haven't been very careful with the wiring and they are damaged. Have had several issues in the past couple of days and now I am convinced they were all related to the damaged MAF wires. Today I cranked the engine and went on to...

    This is for my wife's 2002 1.8T 5-spd Passat wagon. Has been her daily commuter and kids transporter for the past 12 years. Still has the original Wellington rims and she has done a great job keeping them in great shape without significant curb rash. We took it for a ski trip recently and had to...

    I've been in only one accident and the other persons insurance company made the whole process pretty easy, but this doesn't seem to be the case this time. My wife was driving on the populated section of GA92 a couple days ago and there was an accident in the right turn lane on the other side...

    Does anyone know what would cause this? UV damage or water? The spot looks like it shrunk and is much harder then the rest of the seat. It wasn't the seat belt that caused this because there's multiple spots on both the front seats like this. Not really sure how it got like this and I want to...

Repairing the painted sections is easy enough with epoxy filler, primer, base color and clear lacquer. But the areas where the rim is polished to the base metal and then lacquered? Would like...
