    Hi folks. A 2015 Golf TDI owner here who is looking for an additional car for my family. I just test-drove a 2012 Passat today, but I need some help deciding whether to move forward with an offer or not. The seller is asking for $2,000 above the Blue Book value. Here's the car description...

    Hope someone is willing to guide me in the right direction. 2009 CC 2.0 TSI. My son bought this car 9 days ago with 63000 miles. 1 week ago the car lost power as he was driving on the interstate. It had stalled and he was able to re-start it and drive it home (no DTC). Last night he was in...

    Hiya guys, I'm Tyler. I like foxes, and I'm not exactly a car enthusiast. I know to change my oil, and I can change a tire / battery / etc but that's about as far as my car knowledge goes. I've found a used 2002 VW Passat on Craigslist, and the seller has told me it does not have the turbo...

    My front left bi-xenon headlight keeps eating ballast. At first I thought it was a simple headlight going out. Turned out it was the ballast. I replaced the ballast and it worked for 4 hours and went out. Replaced the ballast again by switching my right ballast into my left and putting the new...

    I'm in need of some advice from someone who KNOWS loctite. I'm rebuilding my k03 turbo and directions call to use loctite 573 where the backing plate and compressor housing meet. Loctite 573 is pretty expensive ($65 cheapest). My question is, is there a substitute I can use? Maybe loctite...

    My '03 just failed inspection on the drivers side TRE. Boot is partially off so no surprise I guess. The passenger side joint seems ok (no play) but do I have to replace it also? Only 85K miles but should I also be concerned about inner TRE or any control arm problems at this point? No play in...

    Looking around the car today to get familiar with it, I found this "hose" or "line" at the back of the engine on the drivers side sucked closed. I looked thru the Haynes manual and of course found nothing. I do not know exactly what it is or what it is for or I would have searched it here. Im...

    I installed a b6 a4 double din in my b5 passat. I dont have can-bus but the radio needs it for illumination and on/off with ignition. I read that i could tap into my cluster and get the can-bus signals that the stereo needs? would that apply to my 99 passat...

    Okay, so i have a fellow PW member interested in the brake system off my W8. What is needed for the transition and what are the differences between the W8 brake setup and a regular 4mo setup.

    Here's my problem... my AC compressor kicks in and 'seems' to function. One of the lines going through the firewall is cold (the small one) where I believe the big one should be cold. Inside when the AC is on LOW you would expect cold air to come out of all vents, but I am only getting...

    My 83 cabby is in need of a new brake booster, and I'm probably going to put a new master cylinder on while I'm at it. Problem is, I have the older, completely unavailable ATE style booster and m/c. Partsplaceinc.com claims I can order the Bendix booster and m/c and they'll be a direct fit...
