    I have an 09 Passat with 108K miles and have never updated the cam chain tensioner to replace the original one that apparently is designed to fail. I ordered a kit from Deutsche Auto Parts that includes the tensioner, lower cover, rtv, and the tool to hold the timing at TDC. There is one DIY...

    I am amazed when I see the number of detailed instructions provided by forum members. With today's labor costs, this assistance makes it possible to do repairs that would otherwise cost thousands of dollars. Thanks

    Hi; I hope you are all doing well. I would like to replace the timing belt on my Passat B5.5 2002 V6 2.8l (119000KM). I found many videos and tutorials on internet but none of them is giving enough information for someone like me who have done some simple tasks on the car but never the timing...

    Just replaced my leaky high-pressure hose from the PS pump to the rack on a 2000 ATW. An awkward job, but it can be done. I wrote up this DIY: 1.8T B5 Power Steering Supply Hose DIY Hope this helps someone.

    **MODS** If you think this should be a sticky for a couple weeks, go ahead and glue it up there! ;) Ok, so after a long summer of deferred maintenance I've decided to take my '01 B5 GLX Variant V6/5M off the road and take care of some long overdue maintenance/repairs. I'm at 196,000... If...

    I took some shots the other day after putting on a coat of Wolfgang Sealant and topped that with Pinnacle Liquid Souveran.

    Hello everybody, I have been a member of this forum for a little while and posted here and there, never done a write-up before, but I've spent a lot of time under my car the last few days and some of what I had to due appears to either not be on this forum (for B5.5 specifically) or at least...

    Click for DIY Write-Up I finally put all the pieces together and bit the bullet this weekend on my 2000 ATW 1.8T's PCV system. Since I couldn't find any DIY's with working photo links (or for that matter, for the ATW), I documented the process extensively: Find a detailed DIY at Evernote...

    If you have a mysterious oil leak, if you can smell a strong odor of burning oil after a drive, or if you have whisps of smoke coming out of your engine compartment near the windshield, chances are you have leaking cam oil seals. There are 2 seals, one on the back of each head, directly above...

    This guy, he installs lights into scaled down model cars. They look impeccable and very real! I wish I can get one off his hands that would be sweet to have one sitting on my desk while I dream of getting the car lol. Check this out, then look at his detailed M3 video...

    I checked fuel lines for leaks none found. The smell still exists, what should I do? This is a heavy degreaser I got at Advance Auto primarily gas-like. It's driving me nuts mentally and probably physically. How can I get rid of the smell? It's also coming throuhg the vents.

    1999 GLS. 144K miles. Purchased July, 1998. Driven daily in everything Minnesota can throw at it. Just picked up a Griot's 3inch random orbital (for Father's Day) and decided to try it out this morniing. I clayed the car first. I use Mother's Clay Bar kit because I've had good results with it...

    I spent the better part of yesterday afternoon and this morning/early afternoon polishing (and re-polishing my headlights) and cleaning my engine bay after at least a year of neglect. I didn't think to take any "before" pictures and only have "after" pictures. Even still, let me know if you spot...
