    I'm about to start the mammoth job of pulling the dash and swapping the heater core on my 03 V6 Wagon. I found a nearly mint salvaged dash assembly to replace my current dash while I'm at it, which is cracked and ugly. Question I have is ... does it make sense to swap the a/c evaporator at...

    Well, I accidentally broke the guide for my cam chain tensioner for the passenger side whilst trying to access one of the seals on the backside… Is there any way to get that plastic guide as a separate piece, or do I have to get a whole new tensioner? I sure hope I don't have to get a whole new...

    Hello. My name is Skip and I'm the 4th owner of a 1997 Passat GLX sedan that goes by the name of "Bernard". Unfortunately, he's been parked in front of my apt for most of the year due to engine overheating issues. After months of troubleshooting by process of elimination, I have found that...

    I'm sure this has had to have happened to someone and I think I know how I'll fix it but here it goes: 2005 1.8t 4 motion, had front end rumblings, driver side out cv boot split in half and wheel bearing on the way out. Axle is out. Got out my trusty Harbor Freight Wheel bearing kit (the one...

    I recently had the local dealer do my rear coolant flange, and while it was in there, a t-belt job (the existing one had 76k on it.) They had a better price than the couple local indy's I called. (The t-belt parts prices were inflated, but everything else was reasonable, at worst... the entire...

    Hi VWers, Back after a long time!. My B5 is at 178K, still running solid. Use it occasionally. No plans to sell it. The last timing belt was done at 90K. With that said the labor to change the timing belt is well over or close to the price of the car, I am contemplating if I should I even...

    I've replaced my coolant flange with all the seals and OEM flange in 2014. Early in 2015 it started leaking again, replaced all the seals (flange was fine). Later in 2015 it leaks again (are u kidding me?). At this point i thought it's maybe because i used aftermarket seals (who knows... it's...

    Hey guys quick question that I can't seem to find the answer to. I'm looking at getting the TT stainless steel exhaust with two borla mufflers and was curious. Is there a difference in sound between the full 2.5" TT exhaust with 2.5" TT DP or the TT exhaust that has the fitting to go on the...

    This week I replaced the coolant flange and the feed line heater hose, and then the alternator. I used a memory saver cable, so at least I didn't lose my radio. Coolant levels staying great. Temperature holding steady. Drive it 41.9 miles, at 42 it throws the CEL. OBD2 at Advance can't read it...

    Ok guys I have an issue with the Valve cover gasket. I am getting oil in the coolant. I have replaced all the "lower cost" parts and ruled them all out (coolant reservoir, PCV valve, and oil cooler). I am left with the VCG unless someone has any other ideas. I know people have posted about this...
