  2. Durn it! Ran the MC dry

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I did my rear shocks last night (Blau Kit... went okay except the left shock was a bear to get seated in the lower mount point.) and decided to do a long-overdue brake flush. Because of that *bleep!*-ing strainer in the reservoir, I thought I had topped it off when I hadn't, and I emptied the...
  3. After 12 years the caliper pins are dry who would've thunk it?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I just did my front brakes for the first time after 12 years and 149k. Nothing of note other than the caliper pins were bone dry. You'd never be able to tell they had grease at all. Needless to say, I ran them in and out of the bushings a bunch to spread the new grease around. I think I...

  6. Conti DWS's lack dry grip?

    Wheel and Tire Forum
    I just got these tires yesterday to replace my Potenza RE960's and I'm breaking the tires loose on acceleration, especially when turning a corner, where the 960's didn't, or did much less. Is this the way they are? Does anyone else here have them? Once I remember getting new tires a long time...
  7. Tiptronic Run Dry

    B5 Garage
    I have a 2003 1.8T Passat wagon with Tiptronic with 60K on it. For reasons too stupid to repeat, the car was driven about 12 miles with no ATF in it. Not surprisingly, it was slipping badly. My local non-VW mechanic says the transmission is "cooked" and needs to be replaced, but does not offer...
  8. Just Sprayed Dry Lube On All Sorts of Interior Parts.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I decided to get rid of the squeaking of interior plastics this weekend, by taking things apart and using silicone dry-lube. I could swear the car drove off the lot new, a night and day difference when it comes to interior noise when going over bumps and even closing the doors. If you have not...

    Wax On, Wax Off
    I was using a real chamois.... the thing finally fell apart. I went to K-Mart to buy a new, real chamois...... POS. The thing would not ever rinse well. It was cloudy water coming off the thing for at least two washes. A friend of mine suggested getting microfiber cloths to dry...... what do...

    Today I was driving home from work. I pulled into a store, and when I left the power steering was not working and the driver side was steeming just in front of the windshield.:banghead: I drove stopped and looked at it, but because of how low the damn thing is(and the belly pan) there was no...
  15. How do you dry wet carpet when...

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    it's below zero outside - and you do not have access to either a garage, or an extension cord. Pulled my battery earlier - cleaned out the water drains, and hopefully that solves the water issue on the drivers side floor. Seem to be having CCM issues because of this. Now - need to get that...

    I just tried this stuff for the first time today and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. This isn't something I would use all the time, but for those times when you just need to clean your car in a short amount time, it works GREAT! I highly recommend it. :thumbup: Has anyone else tried this?

  19. Is it bad to wipe your dry vehicle with a Microfiber cloth?

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    On the advice of many, I decided to purchase a few Microfiber cloths. One thing I noticed right away is that the texture of these cloths feel like flypaper. Kind of sticky without actually having any sticky residue. Is this supposed to be normal? The towel kind of feels like it is sticking...
