    It is really difficult to cut the top portion. I've managed to remove the other end post-cat and replace the band clamp, cut the side of the flex pipe closest to the cat with a sawzall, but cutting the other side is damn near impossible. I've managed a cut most of the way through but the sawzall...

    The flex pipe (back of engine) is broken. While cheap downpipes are available for other 2.0T (recently bought one for my 2006 A3 FWD 2.0T), i can't find a reasonable (i.e. cheap) downpipe listed for the 2006 Passat 2.0T. Or I am not looking for the right model. Is the there a model that cross...

    [B5.5 V6 FWD GLX ] So basically I've have had a exhaust leak for like 3 months now, the leak wasn't very loud until about 2 weeks ago. The car had a code and I replaced teh maf and it went away. Its throwing codes for 02 sensors as of now, and after putting the car on a lift, I was able to...

    Hi! It's been quite awhile since I posted here last but still have our 03 1.8T and going relatively strong. I noticed tonight that the mesh covering or woven steel cover on the front part of the exhaust pipe is slightly torn and unraveling. There are no strange noises and no CEL - all seems...

    I need to order a weld in flex pipe for my 2000 Passat V6 glx 4motion and wondered what the diameter of the original exhaust pipe is? Looks like a 4" flex would work but not sure of the inlet / outlet diameter....? If anyone could help much appreciated. If you've welded in a new flex...

    Hey guys I ordered a test pipe to replace my cat and since the flex pipe has to come out I figured this would be a perfect time to replace the flex pipe with an aftermarket piece. Does one exist? If so brands to buy or stay away from?

    im going to replace both flex pipes on my 2000 passat wagon. does anyone know the diameter of the piping? im going to replace both, but the one side the pipe has rusted through where they welded it on. the muffler shop wants $160 to replace the pair and pipes are $25 each. id rather do the labor...

    Here are some pictures of my current project on my '98 GLS prompted by the need to pass emissions SOON :icon_eek: Back a while ago the original passenger side CAT got something tangled up underneath it and broke the honeycomb structure on the inside of the CAT into 3 pieces. A couple of weeks...

    I need to have my flex pipe replaced. I have an 04 GLS 1.8T AWM. Im pretty sure the exhaust is 2.25", but I've been reading about people using 2.00 flex pipes. I also want to make sure I get the right length. Is it 4"? What about the overall length? I found a couple of stainless ones at Summit...

    Hello users. I hear an exhaust leak under my care near the front, looked and looks like flex pipe is broke/cracked. Where should I go in Albany NY to get this fixed. How much does it cost? Anyone else have this done? Thanks

    I have a 02 Passat 1.8T wagon. I need to replace the flex joint under the car. It is leaking. The garage gave me only 1 option. replace the entire down pipe. That with labor hits almost 500 Bucks. A universal flex joint is a top of 50 Bucks. He said the pipe is not in good condition. I been...

    Last night my exhaust became louder. This morning I found a few pin holes in one of the flex pipes. They both look like they've been replaced before. Drove about 25 miles this afternoon and got a CEL with a current fault, P2096 bank 1 post cat lean and a pending fault, P0139 025 sensor bank 1...

    My 2001 Passat (FWD, 1.8T tiptronic, 155k mile) one day suddenly started to make uproarious noise when I accelerate from a stop. It stayed like that ever since (as if I am inside a helicopter). The sound seems to originate from beneath the engine bay. There is also some hint of exhaust gas...

    Hi, Car seems fine, I don't notice anything obvious (perhaps a little shaky in idle when in gear, but I read this is pretty common for this car). Car gets much winter use (salt?) But, I have been through 2 flex pipes in the last 3 years, last one is now gone after a year (Walker Exhaust...

    I am trying to figure out an easy way to replace the front exhaust pipe that has began to break at the wonderfully lame designed flex portion of the pipe. One can not get at the flange bolts unless one removes the cat converter and slides it down with the pipe intact. Then either under the car...
