    So the small piece of trim covering the rocker directly in front of the rear wheel well of my Passat has become chewed up from driving over the damned gravel roads that I live on.

    Feels kinda funny, though. So, long story short: I was rebuilding my door locks and all the OEM plastic pins that keep the door lock support into the door metal frame were wasted so I tought it would be good idea to replace them by new OEM ones. Just checked on ETKA what looked exact like the...

    For a few months I have had intermittent hesitation on my 1999 1.8T Passat (APU) engine and despite replacing the N75, N80, N249, Lambda and MAF valves / solenoids I am getting recurring "short to ground OBDII / DTC fault codes" referring to these now replaced components. The good guys at...

    I have a 1998 VW Passat 1.8t. According to the previous owner's records, they replaced the timing belt very suddenly--when it crapped out on the highway--but I have no record of a water pump replacement. I've been dealing with a horrible leak where the car just craps out a bunch of liquid when...

I have a 99 and i was...
