    The headliner in my 2008 vw passat 2.0t has begun to sag, to the point where I can't look back when in reverse because it keeps hitting my head. I can't even have the windows open anymore because it blows it off even more and makes some of the old glue fly around. Any advice? Car has no warranty.

    there is a metal piece kind of floating around inside my headlight housing. its a rounded piece of flat steel, looks like it would fit around a bulb. any idea if that could be fixed, or am i buying headlights?

    Just got mine a few days ago, it has a ball and spring and a bleeder, both can be adjusted. At first hated it . Full Boost came on 2k rpms and only 1/8th throttle, and if I boosted at part throttle and let off the gas the car would jerk violently. Opend up the bleeder a little helped with...

    Ok so my 03 1.8T GLS has this really annoying piece of cloth that keeps drooping. This piece is held onto the sunroof motor cover by some sort of adhesive. The adhesive on mine seems to be coming off. Does anyone know a quick fix for this? Small dab of glue? Any specific kind of glue? TL;DR...

    Greetings. This is a partial rant and partial request for any thoughts on what has happened to my car recently. It is a 2000 Passat GLX (I think it's a GLX, whatever was the most expensive model) 4-Motion. It has 73,000 miles, with about half put on in the first 4 years. It mostly sits at...

    My interior fabric on the doors and sunroof are falling off. How do I refinish this. I searched and could not find anything.

    Hello all, New around here and happy to announce my renewed love for VR6s. Ten years ago a beautiful 98 red Golf VR6 was the love of my life. She was dressed in Newuspeed from head to toe (or bumper to bumper). An unfortunate event ended her life and the pain was so intense I couldn't bare...

    This is the 3rd time I've replaced the plastic clips that hold the window up. Yet somehow they keep managing to break in half causing the window to fall into my door. I'm wondering if there is a permanent fix for this because it's getting extremely annoying (and time consuming). 1999 Passat 1.8T

    well after 2 body shops and 3 attempts to repaint the front and rear bumpers i've got the car back and i'm quite happy with the paint now, ecstatic even. i filed a complaint against the original body shop that botched the job twice and my credit card company has initially approved the dispute...

    So I installed new pads last year and they started to grind and barely brake for the past few months. I assumed the pads were done, but when I took off the wheel (now that it's finally warm outside) this is what I found: Brake pads are as good as new, yet the rotors have severe grooves in them...

    Well, I had the brilliant idea to check out my turn signal bulbs, and try to dry out the corner assemblies on my B5. I re-installed them, and the little springs seemed to be holding just fine. WRONG! They both broke off. I'm on a couple days' lockout for parts if I order new ones. What can I...

    I was doing 75 on the highway when my corner light popped out and got yanked off by the tire. Either way I don't want it to happen again. Did I install it wrong in the first place? Is this a normal problem? Any suggestions to save myself this hassle again are welcome.
