    Front Right Brake Pulsating after the (failed) Alignment by the VW Dealer. So, I took my car to a VW dealer in South Georgia for alignment after I replaced the control arms. I pulled out of the dealership and noticed a sound reminiscent of a bad strut coming from the front right. I also noticed...

    Still kinda new to the Passat and especially the more complex suspension system. This is a 4 motion V6. Is this just an outer tie rod/ball joint issue or from the inner tie rod too possibly? And how can I be sure? Thanks!

    rear coil springs advice (1 failed) 2010 Passat sedan. Had no idea that buying replacement coil springs is so complicated. Just learned about the VW/Audi spring marking thing. My VIN is WVWJK7AN2AE160399, so the decoder says the correct part is 3C0511115AE (White/Lilac/3x Yellow marks). I'm...

    2001 v6 manual. Test only place implicated this hose as failing a visual inspection. Looked myself and it's defiantly cracked. No idea what it's for so I don't know how to look up parts. Image is attached. It has a squared un-corrigated section right above the block. Thanks in advance for any...

    Thursday afternoon the car decides to run like crap and sound horrible. Drug it home and opened up the top end, to discover failed CCT pads on the driver's (left hand side for you UK folks), and cracks in the body of the passenger's side CCT - hasn't failed yet but looks like it was very near...

    I'm trying to figure out why things in the driver's door of my 2002 Passat don't work like they should. The trunk release pullup button and the interior light switch (separate post). When we got the car several years ago, the trunk pullup switch opened the trunk fine. Then, a year ago or so, it...

    Hi, I was driving today and going downhill getting to a red light when I tried to brake and the pedal when softly all the way to the floor, I pumped a few times and got to brake the car in time but hell I was scared. After a few minutes of trying to find out what happen I got no clue. The brake...

    Good evening all, Just got a 2004 1.8t fwd and the inspection station said it has an exhaust leak and is too loud. The leak is up front near the flex pipe. Pardon me for terminology if I'm wrong. Well I went to the usual websites like rock auto and German parts and saw the catalytic converter...

    I've got a 98 Passat that is testing positive for exhaust gas in the coolant res. I am assuming its due to a bad head gasket but hoping its not. Any info pointing to another cause would be greatly appreciated. 133xxx miles Boost gauge installed MBC Open filter TurboXS bov Cam and crank sensors...

    OK, My well published TB died a slow death and I needed to know why. Symptoms included intermittent ABS and TC lights, every couple of days, it'd go nutz and start crazy idling :icon_eek:...800, 1200, 750, 1400...since it's a 5MT, it's more pronounced. I put the last month or so of my VCDS...

    Historically, we've seen very few problems with head gaskets on these cars; almost never happened, despite everyone and his mechanic thinking they had a failure. Indeed, "your head gasket is bad" is a classic way shady mechanics separate you from a chunk of change without doing anything visible...

    Pulled out my failed module to be repaired on Wednesday. Cleared the codes I was getting as well (have been for the last year, consistently on a single drive cycle P0422, 0431/21). A couple hundred miles later, and no CEL, I scanned the codes and was surprised to see it had zero incomplete...

    I'm going to make the story short and sweet: -Buy 2001 B5 passat for 3600. The car was not inspected and could not pass my shop's inspection. Owner got it inspected somewhere else (my guess is lick and stick aka fraudulent tags) -Day 2 engine light goes on -Since then I have put an additional...

    I've been working on replacing a dead instrument cluster in my 2003 Passat 2.8L GLX. I've made good progress over the last few weeks and have a fairly good understanding of what I need. I suspected a bad cluster because the odometer was cleared to 0000 with the letters dEF below. The fuel and...

    Was on a long weekend trip up to the mountains and drove the Passat 1.8T 4Motion 5 speed up Mount Washington. It did great and was a very casual ride. On the way down, I noticed the temp drop, which I expected because I was primarily off the throttle so the engine was turning but not firing...
