    Hi, I have this issue with my Type 3C (B6) Passat that I haven't been able to solve for years. My mechanic advises total DSG replacement but I would like to discuss the issue here first. The car is a 2007 with a Diesel BKP (2.0T) engine with a 6 speed DSG. The issue only occurs when the engine...

    Out of the blue my AWM auto wouldn't go into gear. You start it, shift into reverse, takes a second then clunks into reverse, put it in drive, then no gears at all. It just revvs like it's in neutral. The gear indicator on the infocenter has every gear selected (like a solid bar across the...

Changed Transmission Oil within the last year with VW's Transmission Oil. Replaced all Motor mounts (but not transmission mounts) within the last 2 years. Clutch is...

    Hello, Reading other post these plastic gear adjustments don't last or work well. Anyone have a decent fix so I don't have to pull the whole bumper off? Seems like that's what you have to do? Thanks, Mark

    Recently bought myself a 2002 1.9TDI Passat with automatic gearbox. A few days ago noticed that the display on the dashboard wont show Park gear. All the others are shown but when I move it to Park the display stays on R. The gear itself is working fine. What should I do?

    Hello, I joined the forum to seek some advice with an ongoing problem i've been having with my 04 passat. I recently drove from SF to Phoenix with it. About 5 hours into the drive, all the P, N, 2,3,4,5, lights lit up along with the engine light. The transmission was locked into a high gear. I...

    hey everyone, So when I'm accelerating and under boost my transmission or something creaks twice or more up until 15 psi and is fine for the rest of the gear until I change gears and it starts over again. I just got chipped by Gonzo and now it's definitely more apparent even than before. Any...

    I have a 2002 1.8 with a 5 speed. The car has 197k on it. It shifts great, but for some reason it sometimes sticks in 1st and 3rd. You have to tug pretty good to pop it out for the next gear. I'm sure the fluid has never been changed in it.

    Hello, my new Passat just started "hiccuping" while shifting into 1st to 2nd gear. I'm pretty concernd seeing as I've had it a little over a month. Another thing I'm concernd about is I've been having a "secret admirer" coming to my house late at night fucking shit up. So far they slashed one of...

    Hello All, I have 98 1.8t, Triptronic, 271.000miles on it. I changed the transmission fluid about 20-25k miles ago using new filter and Pentosin fluid. It had never been changed before.

    So I have had a boatload of European vehicles but every one presents it's own special set of problems. I just picked up a 2000 B5 wagon on the cheap and the girl I bought it from stated that she thought it needed a clutch as diagnosed by her "friend". Car is fairly clean with high miles and...
