    How much movement is normal for the output shaft? Video shows left/driver side. Passenger side was about the same. 2006 Passat 2.0T FWD auto https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L_IvFow_mrZh8I5xCIA0sjUf7weGms3_

    I've been lurking on the site for a while and want to thank everyone for helping even though they didn't know it. I finally ran into a problem where I need some advice. I screwed up, got that part covered. I worked on the car, in the cold (about 20F), with the flu. But the work needed to be...

    I just had to have new flex joints installed with 20k on the ones that let go and want to investigate the cause. The motor mounts and snub have less than 40k on them-Febi and OEM respectively. Average vibration in cabin; engine has about 2-3 inches of vertical movement when in gear and on...

    My 1.8t gls manual 1999 has always had a problem where it will intermittedly have an awful thud during acceleration or deceleration. And there have been a number of times where the whole engine would shake back and forth accelerating. (It almost feels like the axles are warped and has this...

    V6 5spd...ever since I got the car, when accelerating and letting off the gas, the shifter would move. Doesn't pop out of gear or anything like that, but you can see it move back and forth in whichever gear its in. I attributed this to bad motor mounts. Replaced all 5 mounts with 034 mounts...

    I am curious which is the 2nd fan? Drive or passenger side? or should I say big or small fan. Almost blew the engine last night stuck in traffic, turned on the heater full blast to cool it as much as I could and finally it went back to normal.

    I did a timing belt replacement on my 2.8 and within 17,000 miles the dampener pully's outside race pushed out through the plastic cover on the front of the engine. I replaced the pully and put the timing belt on and noticed that the timing belt is moving forward and backward on the cam...

    I am trying to track down a VERY loud "pop" in the steering/supension/engine mounts and took a quick look today at the drivers side. I noticed by hand I could get at least 1/8" of movement in and out on the rubber outer tie rod end. I also think there may be a noise with the inner end and I...

    Hello, I like my new Passat, it handles well and feels very solid, but the previous owner was one of those driver only people and I need to catch up on maintenance. I need to figure out why if the gear selector on the tiptronic tranny does not work all the time. The cable appears to be hooked...

    First post! Awesome site, convinced me to buy a beautiful B5. 2000 Passat GLS, 1.8T 5spd at 124k miles, and in love with it already after only 2 days. HOWEVER, I have one concern that I hope I can get some input on, if anyone else has seen this in their Passat: The front end seems very...

    While under my 2002 Passat MT I noticed that there was play in the right passenger side inner axle joint. There was enough play so that I could make the axle make a sort of clunking noise. Also, I noticed that I could move the transmission a certain amount with my own force (not using a...

    I know certain cars you can feel the shifter move when you get into the throttle and let off. My question is how much if any is normal on a 2003 V6 passat? I know mine moves a good amount (at least a half inch at the knob). Im not sure if its a worn trans mount that could cause this or if its...

    Just what is a 3411 tool? It looks like guide with threads on one end. 8mm x 1.25? 10mm x 1.5? How long is it? The manual shows 3411 replacing bolt #5. Is that one of the bolts holding the "bumper carrier"? I am trying to get access to the ABS electronic module. Running a die up a piece...

    I finally got around to replacing my snub and transmission mounts, have been waiting for my time + the weather to align to get it done... I've had motor/ trans movement ever since I bought the car, and found the motor mounts to be completely shot! Bought and installed R32 mounts just before...

    Hi, Wasn't exactly sure how to search for an answer to this so if it has been covered before then I apologise in advance. Over the last couple of months, I've noticed that the car is very slow to respond to the throttle after starting the car from cold. I start the engine, put it in D or R...

    I already have a v&s/IPP short shifter in, but i still feel like the shifter still moves around a lot. Throws are definately shorter and more precise than stock, but I don't feel as if side to side motion was reduced at all. Anyone know of a way to reduce the movement from side to side?

    My driver's seat is definitly driving me crazy. Almost all the time it is moving around now when I change the speed/direction of the car. I haven't seen any posts on how to fix this with the exception of someone that got the following parts replaced at the dealer. Item Part # Seat Frame...
