    So I was drilling out the pinch bolt to change the upper control arms on my Passat B5.5. I had around half a centimeter to go, until I broke the drill bit into it, oh well. The drill bit says 4.5 HSS, so it is a 4.5 mm HSS bit, from this tool set...

    Can a car be boosted with a 12V (maybe 14V) battery that is attached to my drill? The car battery has some juice! Not enough to start the car or even play the deck but does power on the interior lights in the car and the remote locking and unlocking of the doors still works. So I was hoping...

    Plenum chamber drains blocked and plenum chamber filled with water. Went in to brake booster. I removed some water by gaining access through the vaccum port at the front and sucking it out with some clear 6mm hose. Some water is still left in the booster. I'm guessing it's the other side of the...

    over the weekend, I was working on the 98 A4 that's been taking up space in my driveway for a bit. One of the last things I had to do before putting it back together was remove the pinchbolt on the passenger side. to facillitate this, I tried heat and beat, hammer/vibrations from an air chisel...

    I have decided I am going to put my Euro plate on the front of my car. I bought a frame and did some searching here to see peoples' opinions on mounting options. Double sided tape seems to be a clear favorite. I have no holes drilled in the chrome grill now (no front plate required in PA), so...

    Hi. 2003 passat 1.8T noob here.:confused: Just out of warranty last week, and I just got chipped last week. Everything else is stock (couldn't do anything while in warranty, right?)... Anyways, now I notice a high pitch sound. Sounds like my dentist's drill to me, but it could be a whistle...

    I bought a Drive+Play off of craigslist for cheap and was wondering what the best way to install it was. I seem to have figured out a good plan, but my question is whether i can drill into the transmission hump on the drivers side to run the wire for the Controller. Does anyone have any...

  13. Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    In an earlier forum post I read some time ago, someone mentioned that it might be a good idea to dremel or drill out the square holes on the front grill in front of the air intake. I have a 2005 B5.5, 1.8T, and my holes are solid filled from the factory. I guess I don't understand why. If the...

    I would like to buy one of these for 2 reasons. 1) Remove lug nuts quickly 2) Drill the heck out of my metal bumper to install a hitch Can a impact wrench serve as a drill or hammer drill take off lugs? I would rather have a corded one instead of a cordless just so I don't have to worry about...

    Hey fellas, I'm putting a new stereo system in my friends '99 Passat GLS but needed to know where the best place to drill through the firewall was to run all the wiring through. I've never ran into such a cramped engine bay before :P Also it's got a new engine swap (1.8T from an Audi after...
