    My car is a 2006 Passat 2.0T sedan. In trying to change the engine air filter, I follow the steps in the Bentley manual but run into a problem removing the air guide from the cover assembly. So that's: undo two clips at intake hose; disconnect wiring connector; lift cover off four corner...

    Thanks to the forums, I can see clearly that I need to replace my PCV system. There is a nice DIY write-up for B5 with pictures, but I couldn't find one for the B6 (I have an 07 2.0T). Does one exist? I have already replaced the PCV valve unit itself, but an overview of everything else would be...

    I have searched all over and cant find a guide anywhere. The only thing I have found is to disconnect the downpipe from the exhaust and pull the whole thing up out of the engine bay. That thread stopped after the poster said he couldn't get it all out and was now trying to get the 3 bolts off...

    Hey, I have recently discovered a passion for my 2000 Passat. Something about that 1.8 turbo engine and its five speed manual transmission, combined with the beautiful Audi-like body style, and those gorgeous blue gauge lights really got a hold of me, so I want to build it up. I'm in training...

    Hey Passat folks. I'm doing a "simple" front brake pad change on my 2001.5 1.8T. The sensor wire on the passenger side was fubar so a pad change seemed like an easy Sunday afternoon project. The driver's side changed out with no problems at all, but the passenger side is another story. I...

    Hi fellas, Went to the taligentx website to use his info for removing and stripping B5 door locks ('door lock mechanism repair') but there appears to be a problem with the photos. I'm getting the write-up but no photos. There's an error message block where the thumbnails usually are. Is...

    I'm starting to prepare for changing the timing belt on my 1.8T ATW engine. The DaddyMatt guide for the AEB engine is excellent and I'll likely use that a primary reference in lieu of an ATW-specific guide. Are there any differences in the timing system between the ATW and AEB that I should...

    I set about replacing the rear brake pads on my 2001 tonight. I was able to get the bolts out of the caliper guide pins on each side; but the top caliper guide pins on each side will not come out of the mounting bracket. They will turn but will not come out. I tried giving them a dose of...

    I just picked up a 99' Passat 1.8T 5 Speed manual the other day. When I run the engine I faintly smell oil sometimes, this might just be my imagination, and I have not ran it long enough to see if it is burning off.. To my good luck though the oil in it right now is pretty old and does not...

    So this car has 240,000 Miles on it, and ive recently become somewhat concerned about this, and the replacement of it. Is there a specific mileage when this should be replaced? I noticed on the GAP website that you can't buy replacement pads, so does this mean the whole unit much be replaced...

    Forum member RichardSEL was kind enough to send me a Word file he has containing a comprehensive list of the readouts available in the Climatronic unit's Diagnostic Mode. It's a great resource that I thought would be most helpful as a post in the forums. I posted it in the B6 forum on VWVortex...

    The other day at my job I had my crank seal replaced (its nice being on the other end of working at a dealership finally). Everything went smooth with that and the tech stated my oil pan was leaking. So we decided to warranty it. I've always complained on how my car made a little bit of a...
