    Hey Guys, I'm finishing a timing belt and everything else "while I'm there" project and I've got a snub nose mount question. Obviously, the OEM mount was old and destroyed, so I bought the rubber version and it doesn't touch the sides in the opening on the front clip. Probably an 1/8" clear...

    Loose or missing fan pulley bracket bolts has resulted in broken fan blades on the driven fan. Can I install: new bolts, new fan clutch, new fan without removing all the front end stuff - normally associated with a timing belt job, i.e. putting the front in service position? Thanks much for...

    Everything was going along well on my timing belt replacement, and I figured I'd replace the camshaft oil seals. I might be regretting that decision. Put a sheet metal screw in the seal, pried it out and my f-ing vice grips slipped off and put a noticeable gouge in the nose of the camshaft...

    I feel like a newbie all over again. But the question is how much louder are our 1.8T engines during idling and at a stand still? Also, the 1.8T seems to vibrate some more than the V6 I noticed. Same with the Audi A4 1.8T. Is that normal? I know I recently took notice of my B5.5 vibrations...
