    Hi, I have a 2005 1.8t 4motion passat that I recently had a timing belt break on. I was cruising along smooth when suddenly the timing belt snapped and instantly bent all my valves. I got the thing home and pulled the head, did a valve job and got it back in without any major issues. When I...

    Its unavoidable in my small town with its small parking spaces. Different people driving my W8 Passat. My wheels have considerable damage to the outter rims from rubbing against the curb or footpath. I took a quick look today, and notice the most outter edge is approx 12mm and almost seems to...

    I'm open to any and all suggestions here. I had a bad automatic transmission in my 05 model Passat, 1.8t. I changed the transmission and when pulling it out, bent the spacer between the motor and transmission. I straightened it out as best I could and put it back in when I installed the new...

    I was driving to the store last week and I noticed a lot of resistance driving up the hill I live on, so pulled over to find my front left caliper siezed. Pried it open, drove back home without using pedal. I decided to replace the pads, rotors and calipers since it's been a while anyway ( even...

    Recently having issues with my 1999 VW Passat 2.8 V6 4Motion (Tiptronic) when accelerating hard and mostly in first gear, has happened a couple of times in second gear also (as changes gear).

    Having a problem where when I come to the stop light or sign, once I get down to about 10 MPH the brakes begin to grind really bad ( like metal on metal) . I thought my pads were worn down but I looked at them today and they looked fine to me. They actually seems to have quite a bit of brake...

    This morning I had already been driving for 20 minutes or so when suddenly my tranny (5 speed) began make very loud grinding and clunking noises when I was decelerating to a light. It continued to do this for the rest of my drive home (7KM/4MI). It didn't matter if I was in neutral, clutch in...

    I have a 2003 Passat, and recently I’ve noticed kind of like-grinding/cracking noise (can’t figure out what kind of noise) when I first start my car and put it in drive, I turn the steering wheel both ways and it starts making this awful rubbing noise. It does it when I don’t drive for a while...

    I recently bought this car from a friend. And has been fixing it. It wasn't driven for 2 years. I drove it a few times and there was a grinding noise from nearly all the wheels. So today I took out both back tires and checked the brake pads and they have at least half life left. They are all...

    Hi all, I've done many searches over the internet and through this and another forum, but I don't really know what I'm searching for and similar symptoms / diagnosis of other threads are not matching up to my symptoms.

    So I am at a lost. If I am driving straight no matter how fast I get a metal grindin, turning to the right seems to increase the symptoms, turning to the left the sound goes away.

    So after having new front arms fitted yesterday my car now makes a grinding noise when you apply the brakes softly at rolling speed, the brake pedal also judders and sinks a little as if the ABS is kicking in. This has never happened before, present as soon as I left the garage. I took it back...
