    2002 V6 GLX Wagon 4Motion My son's car. He's been experiencing the rumbling under the center of the car during acceleration up to a certain RPM for over a year. I had read about these bearings and figured that was the issue. I am looking for feedback regarding how much play should be in said...

    My mechanic says that my center support bearing on rear drive shaft is shot and that he could replace it if I find a replacement and bring it to the shop. The proper fix is to completely replace the driveshaft. The car is old (2002, 140K) and I am looking to minimize repair costs. I called 034...

    I'm in the process of pulling the engine & transmission to do some rebuild work. However, I can not get the driveshaft to separate from the transmission which is the only thing preventing the engine/transmission from coming out. I removed 5 of the 6 bolts that attach the driveshaft to the...

    Manual transmission. I'm trying the bolt method where you use the axle bolt to tighten down until the CV joint pops off the axle shaft. The right driver side worked great. I have the joint out of the hub. How do I keep the axle from turning? Obviously having someone step on the brakes doesn't...

    Does anyone know where to buy the driveshaft center bearing/bushing. I called downingtown vw, they don't have it, but told me a new driveshaft is around $1400. I tried 034 motorsports, they do not carry the item but to check back. I really need to find this. There is a horrible thumping noise...

    I fixed the leaking differential seal on the tail shaft of the 4motion transmission. I made a video on the details necessary to repair it. It's not an extremely hard job if you have the right tools and knowledge but repair takes some time. Hopefully this video helps someone out. Audi owners...

    Guys, I'm working on changing the output flange seal and the fluid in my 04 V-6 4Mo middle drive. I am at the point of taking the 6 bolts out that connect the driveshaft to the flange. The last bolt is right over the shaft and it is very hard to get to. What is the easiest way to rotate the...

    I've had a torn CV boot for a while on the passenger side of a 2001.5 passat and need to replace the axle. Should I go ahead and replace the driver's side as well? It has 110k miles on it with the original axels as far as I know (got it with 30k on it). I do plan on keeping this car...

    Hi all, My passat has 81000km (50k miles) and it has been a pretty good car mechanically. It's a 2.0T Tiptronic Recently I noticed that when I take off close to full right lock, I will hear a clunk as I step on the gas. I can back off and step on the gas and it will go 'clunk' again. I put...

    Great forum! I've popped in over the past month and received some really good advice. 2000 V6 4Motion ATQ pre-310000 VIN... with a parachute out the back. :) I've searched for this problem on all the threads, but only see two of them with any relevance. Whenever I accelerate/decelerate, I...

    Hi guys My dad got me a new axle because my driver's side front is loose. There's something different about this driveshaft, though. This is how it looks (stole these from a post in the classifieds sorry!): and after looking on germanautoparts.com it appears that those are not the right...

    I have a '00 1.8T FWD wagon with 90k, and in the last 500 miles or so have suddenly noticed a once-per-wheel-rev noise coming from the front left. I first noticed it last week at highway speeds, thought I picked up a screw or something, but no. Over the course of a few days and a few hundred...

    Hi all, I have a 1996 Passat Tdi (Engine code: 1Z) and need to replace the inner RH drive shaft boot. The Haynes manual says to get the dealer to do it, and I have had no luck finding any info on this forum. Is this possible to do myself or should I take it in to a garage? I am fairly...

    The driver's side driveshaft seal on my '02 GLS tip is leaking gear oil, and I was wondering what a typical price from the dealer would be to have this replaced, I forgot to call while they were open.
