    Hello. The rear main crankshaft seal was replaced past Friday on 2010 Passat with DSG transmission. I haven't had a chance to drive the car until today (wife's car) and noticed a few things. 1. When car is in park and I push the gas pedal (quickly for a fraction of a second), the rpms go up to...

    So I have an oil leak that I'm finally getting to this weekend. It slowly has leaked all the oil over the course of a week, but only leaks when it's not running. When running, there is no leak. I hit a speed hump pretty hard just before this happened and due to needing new shocks/struts, it...

    Ok, I've got a 2.0 2008 Wagon @ 105,000mi and I've been told that I might have to replace the harness in the engine due to 'old brittle' harness. First off, I looked around and can't seem to find a DIY for this. Troubling and leading into; Second, this sounds like BS. Thoughts?

    Has anyone had this problem before? (VW and my service technician have never seen anything like it, and have not been able to find a solution so far). After using the main key, if you insert the spare key, the car's clock jumps back one hour. If you continue using the spare key, nothing...

    Has anyone had their rear main seal go out? My 2.0T had the rear main seal fail and leak badly at approx 83000 miles. It was a costly repair at close to $1k. Shop said it was fairly common on the 2.0T

    I was wondering if anyone changed their Rear Main Seal (Paul did not) and knows the part number for the seal... just the seal itself. I know I can find the whole flange (078103171L) with the seal already installed, but I don't want to spend a fortune on the whole thing, as my flange is ok and it...

    Like others on this and other forums I wanted to fit new main (high) beam headlamp bulbs to my RHD 2004 Passat TDi Estate, which had not been replaced from new, despite 170,000 miles! But on initial investigation the job looked near impossible due to the poor access, and reading the experiences...

    In the midst of a clutch job. What a PITA. I guess there's a reason shops charge 700+ in labor to do the deed :icon_eek: Anyways, finally dropped the transmission last night and am getting ready to install the new pilot bearing, clutch set, and flywheel. There was lots of oil where the...

    My 2000 1.8T ATW recently pulled a P1517 code. I checked my relays that my be affiliated with the problem and relay 372, the fuel pump relay, was charred and burnt up. So that is a plausible culprit but I wanted to check my main relay, however I have no idea where it is haha:D Thanks for your...
