    04 1.8t AWM Recently I replaced the coolant flange and temp sensor. Afterwards, a problem arose that had only happened once previously. It would overheat while driving, but stable at idle. My first thought was air bubble, because it wasn't overheating at idle. Bled the coolant at the heater...

    Time for a timing belt, having difficulty finding "kit" with metal impeller . HELP! Greetings from Providence, RI- I usually order most of my VW and Audi parts from FCP Euro in nearby CT. because they have good prices and the shipping is usually free and the order arrives in one or two days. I...

    Hi all. I'm looking for advice from someone who has done the coolant leak repair. I have a 2000 B5 with 2.8L ATQ engine. I found that the leak was coming from the front coolant pipe. Not the big T pipe that connects to the heads, but the smaller pipe that plugs into the front of the engine...

    162K miles on the original clutch, no slipping, no chatter, smooth engagement. GIAC-X since ~40k. Again, no issues with driveability and I've never been a clutch dragger like some folks I've ridden with, LOL. Recently I've noted that as I release the clutch pedal while engaging the next gear, I...

    GRAF & HEPU are the metal impeller kings. However, the GRAF has a anti-noise/wear coating on the impeller, you decide? $47 + ship.

    I have a set of Carlsson 1/5s in 5x112 18x8.5 et40 with metal centercaps. They wheels have some clearcoat issues, but no real curbage, perfect for a strip and PC/paint or just polish since it has the metal caps. Also comes with a set of lug bolts. $700 plus shipping OBO.

    So the wife slid on the ice onto some PVC vents for house that are next to the driveway (she swears she wasn't going too fast; last year she totalled my beloved 2001 Accord after "driving slowly" through a puddle and into a guard rail; you be the judge). So she got stuck jammed it in reverse...

    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...

    So, after i blew a great big hole in my oil pan the other day i think it's time to protect it a little better. I really love the look ot the "Thor" pan (and the fact it's named after me :P ), but I'm a bit scared for what shipping will cost and can't find a source up here in Norway. Anyone know...

    This is probably an odd question, but does anyone know the sheet metal thickness of the floor of a B5?

    I received a Meyle control arm kit today, and it came with the solid metal outer tie rod ends. From what I understand, the all-metal versions give more precise steering control, but you feel a little more road vibrations as a trade-off. I'm primarily concerned with a smooth ride, so I'm...

    Hey everyone. When I come to a stop, or when I am taking off, I hear a metallic clicking sound( not like cvc joints) but almost like the shock tower is broke. I also hear it if I go over pot holes, or a bumpy road. Its coming from the front. I am about to do the first oil change and tire...

    Just picked up an '07 3.6L 4Motion wagon with 98k on the clock. Has been serviced regularly from VW dealer it's whole life and I had a PPI check out clean before I bought it. Everything drives great and the suspension feels fine (although a bit soft) but when I go over some bumbs mainly at...

    Hey guys, in the process of removing my old tail lights and installing some new ones I had to remove some trim panels in the boot of the wagon. I've managed to put everything back together (somehow!!) except for this last piece of trim. There's 4 fastening plastic clips that clip into holders in...
  17. Volkswagen Passat CC Discussion
    Hello! I am new to the forums and to VW, so please be gentle! Of course I first used the search on this site to try to find a solution before I posted this thread. My wife and I are proud new owners of a new 2013 Passat. It is the 2.5L SEL model. With only 100 miles on it, we have hit a...

    i'm new to the forums. i just got a 99 passat a few weeks ago, and i'm starting to tackle some of the problems after getting the clutch/flywheel, fixed, and a brake job done. i need to replace some wiring for the headlights, but i'm not sure how to properly remove the "clips" that hold the...

    Hi I'm changing a front ABS sensor and I need the metal sleeve that inserts into the hub where the sensor then gets inserted into. I have a big favor to ask...can someone who lives in the US buy one for me and mail it to me in NS, Canada ? All the places that sell these online (cheaply) are in...
