    Showed up at my work today. :thumbup: All coated aluminum Genuine Audi/VW. This will last the rest of my lifetime. Guess I'd better start watching that YouTube video now, seeing as I don't have a Bentley anymore. :rolleyes: Will be replacing the leaking one on my wife's 2003 GLX.

Ordered replacement from Ebay for $ 75 USD, arrived from China in less than 3 weeks - not bad at all me thinks. In removal of the old pump...

    So, I have some good news, I suppose...Following this plan of sticking to "babied" Passats I came across an 02 V6 4-motion sedan for sale by a Subaru dealership with 145k, a trade-in. Just bought it today for $1k. Drives solid, no rust. Still unsure this will end up being a good deal but...

    Hey all, In the market for a new family hauler as my daily driver is not "practical" according to my wife. I've been looking at VWs due to my company getting a pretty significant discount with them and just drove the Passat TDI and CC R-Line the other day. Of the two I liked the Passat...

    It's a -97 B5 1.8 20v. My first bearing job. Right, so I pushed my new *** bearing into the bearing housing with a vice after freezing the bearing and heating the housing. The last inch I pushed in with the biggest hammer in the house. I thought it went surprisingly well. But the moment I put...
