    I checked the pump unplugged with 12 v and it runs fine. Relay 373 in the 13 relay box and its' fuse are fine. Is there a module for the pump somewhere that could be bad? if anyone out there could send me a wiring diagram of the pump and its control would be great.

    Just a curiosity. I know many Subaru AWD cars allow you to add a fuse to a port labeled FWD this will make the car virtually FWD, no power is sent to the rear. Is there any equivalent to this in a VW 4 motion?

    So does anyone know the last year they offered a Passat with AWD/4-motion? I have it on my 2003, and notice on the VW website it is only offered on the CC. Just wondering when it went away.

    I have been doing some digging on upgrading the rear brakes to work and match the 18Z setup that I am doing to the front. Can I use a BBK made for a C5 255x10 car or Audi B6? This is the setup that I want but am looking for some info on what will work on these cars...

    I am looking at H&R sport springs. Is anyone else running them? Put new tires and wheels on the wife's car. Now I need to lower it a bit. The wheels are 18x8 et35 wrapped in 245/40r18 tires and the car is a 4 motion so I am limited on options.
