    I bought a set of 17" audi wheels last night from a guy online for a decent deal..... only problem with them is they all have a lot of curb rash. Some are worse than others. I work in a metal fab shop and one of the guys said he'd throw some weld on them so we can sand them down smooth again...

    I'm doing a CV boot replacement on my Right (Pass) Axle. However, I'm having trouble removing it. I've removed all the inner triple square bolts, but the flange seems to be stuck on. In all of the videos that I've seen the inner flange just seems to fall right off. My guess is that it is seized...

    So my oil cooler is allowing oil into my coolant. At least that's my explanation for oil in my coolant during a water pump replacement last weekend. I don't know how much these are from the dealer. AutoZone seems to be about $95. Has anyone experienced any reliability issues with the...

  5. Wax On, Wax Off
    It wasn't actually me who did this, but I removed the "PASSAT" letters from the back with fishing line and they left foam that was still stuck on in the shape of the letters. My friend decided to help me with this task by scrubbing at them with a scratchy dish sponge, not steel wool, but the...

    Will only hold 5lbs, can hear oil bubbling in engine. I'm assuming one of the PCV valve bits has shot craps, or "I'm doing it wrong". Followed the instructions on the Audi forum, even capping off the hose to the pancake. What needs to be replaced? 04, 1.8T, 208k

    Car won't move more than 3" front to back. The only thing I can think of is that one of the axles happened to jam up on the transmission end. 5.5, 1.8t wagon w/Tip, although the question is pretty generic. I'm going to dig into it tomorrow, I've had enough for today.

    Prior to this beautiful weather, I thought I had planned out what I wanted to do for the Passat. I kept jumping from the thought of leaving it as is, paid off and maybe sell it later, or doing modifications such as new wheels and suspension kit. I am pondering heavily about what wheels. I...

    My car is in top notch shape, I baby it, as well as you other passat lovers until yesterday:banghead:. I get in the car go to start, cranks okay, was so close to firing up, then nothing. Each time I crank theres less of a fire up as if its using up what lil fuel is there. It seems to me its...

    Am interested in doing a transmission fluid change sometime in the next few months. I like DubWerks and Rich quoted something like $220/$240. Anyone in Chicagoland changed their transmission fluid and were happy with the service? Please post your service shop and price it cost. Thanks.

    Okay, so heres the thing. im lazy. and i want to swiss cheese my airbox. couple questions, (and i know these have probably been answered before) but does it actually do anything for the car, power wise, or does it make it sound better? and does it throw any codes or anything? and only drill...

    Car question. I installed a new cone air filter. I need a heatshield. I've searched endlessly on "the last intake thread" and I can't find a writeup on how to make one myself. Please help me if you can thank you. It's just not being efficient. I replaced the stockbox due to losing those...

    Like the title states, I got the car back from my airbrusher today since he painted a bunch of stuff. He put the throttle body back on upside down so the plastic part is closer to the front of the car as opposed to the rear. Is this okay, or should I switch it back? The car ran fine, I didnt...
