    So, on my way home from work the other day my cruse control would not function and between shifts the RPMs would hang or remain higher than normal. After some diagnostics (which I charged myself $99) I found a little white button laying on the carpet. And I thought I think I know where that came...

    A couple months ago I got to work after a 20 minute drive on the freeway and noticed FL wheel was smoking and the rim was all black with brake dust, with 165K on my 04 4Mo wagon I figured it was time to replace/rebuild calipers. Got rebuilt calipers and replaced both sides and everything seemed...

    Hi yesterday I noticed that my rear mirror was a little bit loose. I decided to investigate and learnt the it has been glued by the rain sensor. It looks like the mirror had already been loose before and the former owner may have used glue or silicone to put it back. But I have understood...

    Guys So the radiator in the Passat took a dump - this is my first time removing the bumper cover. I have the hood latch release disconnected and elec connector disconnected, all screws in the wheel wells removed, the two screws at the upper edge of the grill removed, separated from the side...

    Last oil change I noticed the hose/line in the picture below just hanging (above: red arrow points to it, middle: red line identifies it). I didn't see any evidence that it had been fastened or clamped to anything in the past or where to do so if necessary. Can't say I've paid any...

    I recently bought a 2004 that had been in an accident. The front bumper is gone which makes seeing everything quite a bit easier. I bought the ELSA program off Ebay which along with pics on this forum has helped tremendously. But the program is only helpful if you know what the parts are...

    Check out the photos. The bracket hangs down on both sides, and is clearly bent up from hitting the road. It appears to be one large piece of flat metal, reminiscent in shape to an anti-roll bar. Is this dangerous?

    Was looking at my car today and saw this hanging out from the bottom drivers side valence and on the ground. It seems to have some sensor attached to it and the plastic piece seems to have been broken off somewhere......obviously. I pulled it through the front of the valence where the vents are...

    How do you think that engine placement manifests itself in our Passats. That four-banger doesn't weigh that much but its so far in front of the front axle line , and I've never driven a car like it before, so I've been wondering how much it really influences things like feel, handling and...

    After the last run with Ferrari's and Lambo's on 9/1, I decided to subscribe to the forum and have a look around. It's a very interesting group. It doesn't generate the same volume of posts as a car like the Passat but it's interesting to note the kinds of people on this forum...

    Ever since I went over a concrete parking block several days ago, I have been worrying about if there is any damage to my Passat 99 1.8T. So far, I did not find anything wrong except a few scratches on the bottom of the chassis and a metal belt hanging under my car. Is this belt broken...
