    Hello there guys, Sorry if this has been answered before, tried searching previous posts but did not see something that was similar to my scenario at hand. Alright, I have an 07 Passat 2.0T. As I was reversing out of the parking ramp I hear a LOUD pop, I mean LOUD where I literally thought...

    Recently I've had a loud ticking noise like a dry CCT click from a cold start. It'll quite down once warm at idle, but driving it'll tick again. Also, there's an exhaust smell coming in the cabin when vents open. I'm thinking an exhaust leak is the culprit. The flex coupling steel mesh is torn...

    I've come on here often in the past when I was having a problem with our 2005 Passat TDI Wagon, and although I haven't been on here every day, I have frequented the board. The time has come to sell our 2005 Passat TDI Wagon and although I will post it as well in the classified section, I...

    Hey everybody! I have an 02 Volkswagen Passat that I've owned for 5 yrs. It's turning out to be a disappointment (constant coolant leak despite fixes, oil leaking, door falling apart, weird electrical issues, AC broke, etc). Last weekend I got my AC compressor replaced (for $900) at a mechanic...

    My frined does side work out of his garage at home and has someones 2004 Passat 1.8t. They had just bought it and I guess it had the code P0011 (the previous owner told them the "screen" needed to be cleaned out). My friend started by doing a timing belt on the car and he said he changed the oil...

    So, today I was pulling into my driveway and the exhaust got really loud. Like, really loud. Here's a video: https://goo.gl/photos/TUpFNxjeLinf5U737 There was a small leak/hole in the exhaust previously, between one of the cats and its muffler. Could this be caused if the hole opened up...

    Hey everyone, I have decided it was time for me to look into this saip issue. I know I don't have to do an emission test for another 1.5 years but I rather fix it sooner than later. 2000 ATW Passat, on cold starts it sounds like a jet engine taking off in my parking lot. I have checked for...

    Noise goes away completely (as far as I can tell in the cabin with the window down, hood up) above 2000rpm, but at idle, there's a goddawful buzzing noise. Doesn't sound dieselish. I'll try and post a video of it soon. Car isn't driving any differently, no codes being thrown that I can pick up...

    Good evening all, Just got a 2004 1.8t fwd and the inspection station said it has an exhaust leak and is too loud. The leak is up front near the flex pipe. Pardon me for terminology if I'm wrong. Well I went to the usual websites like rock auto and German parts and saw the catalytic converter...

    Hi all, on the advice of my neighbor I cut out the cherry bomb resonator that was in the car when we bought it. Replaced for the time being with a 24" straight pipe. I'm eventually going to replace that with a new muffler to quiet it down some. In the meantime, has anyone had any experience...

    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 had read just about every thread on this forum and others concerning creaking steering wheel noise and no-one had mentioned this as their cause so thought I would post it here. Having only owned my B5.5 Variant for a few months and having just gotten most of the bugs out of it I was amazed at...

    low oil pressure light. i did make the mistake and kept driving it home so I can work on it or attempt to. I thought it was no big deal ( I checked oil). As I pulled into my parents house it started making a loud noise and had a loss of power. It sounded like all the videos of the camshaft chain...

    Oil splatter, loud rattling & grooves in valve cover - Help! My son pulls into the driveway yesterday evening right as the "low oil pressure" light comes on and a loud rattling sound starts. After raising the hood we see an area with oil splatter all over it right around the "puck" valve...

    I do have an aftermarket Alpine Monoblock Amp and subs installed, but everything's worked fine before. Do you think it could wires going bad or the monsoon amp going bad? It's both the front and rear left speakers that aren't as loud as the right. Even if I set the balance all the way to the...

    Sometime ago I noticed some weird loud, fast and irregular clicking noises coming from behind the headlight switch probably from the vicinity of where the relays are. The clicking came and went and initially I had no idea why. Now I realize that this clicking only occurs when the climate...

    Hello, I have 2007 3.6 Tiptronic Wagon and it is intermittently idling around 900rm vs 600rpm. Not a huge different except it feels as if it wants to take off if I release the break and is hums a lot louder than normally. It seems to be a bit louder with the AC on, but turning off the AC does...
