    I have an 04 TDi that I converted to 5spd two years ago. Everything went great for about a year until I somehow broke the transmission.

Such is the condition of Betty's old Boxter calipers after the buyer's installer stripped the threads on the brake line hole in one of the two. I offered to repair them, and so I...

    So a couple a weeks ago I flushed out my hydraulic system with Pentosin Super DOT4, and the results are poor at best. Call me a liar if you will, but I'm giving it straight. Before the flush there was no difference in pedal feel whether the car was hot or cold. Now when the car is cold the...

    Hello all! I am thinking of sending in my ABS Module for repair but wanted to check ABS fuses and relays just to make sure those cheap things wouldn't be the cause of my ABS/Brake light flashing and annoying sound first.

    Hi everyone, last week, I flushed out my brake system on my 99 Passat including the clutch slave cylinder using ATE type 200 gold fluid.

    A dealer recently told me that my engine mounts were leaking on my b5.5 1.8T passat. I believe they quoted me $500 per mount or so, I doubt that included labor. My question is: Is it necessary to replace these? If I don't what kind of damage am I looking at in the long term? Also is it...
