    I have 2x of the plastic belly pan originally sold by the guy in Charlotte (won't say his or company name). They are still in the plastic, but I have no need for them as I no longer have a B5/B5.5. $30 for both if you pick them up in Greensboro, NC. I will meet somewhere close to Greensboro...

    I got this white b5 wagon for about 500 because there were a few simple problems that i could easily fix, however, I ran into an issue. I replaced the oil cooler and pan because they both seemed to leak severely. The seal for the oil cooler broke and the oil pan had a crack. I replaced both (...

    New to posting in this forum, but it has been awesome for info regarding my 2002 1.8 Passat Wagon. Just got finished dropping the oil pan due to low oil pressure warning. Could not have done it without this forum!

    Short version is; split the oil pan with a slow but steady crack. Had extra oil on hand and kept topping up on the way to my shop. Hit traffic pulled over and parked it till after traffic. Got more oil to drive the extra 2 miles. the STOP warning light never came on cause of my oil additions...

    Hello Everyone… I’m hoping someone can assist me. I have viewed many discussions related to coolant leaks, but nothing seems to speak to my issue specifically. My car’s ignition is off … I pour coolant in the coolant reservoir … I leaks out immediately, not from the coolant reservoir tank...

    I just hit a dip in the road and it appears that I knocked a whole in the trans pan. I just got it home and I'm about to crawl under to assess the damage. I have a feeling that this one is going to hurt the wallet. Wish me luck. Comments from anyone who has delt with this erea are grately...

    Do you have a belly pan for your car? If you have a belly pan, do you keep it on? Sometimes after changing the oil I question whether I should replace the belly pan or leave it off.

    Hi all! My first post. I bought a 2003 passat glx 2.8l with 190k about a year ago. Problem: Engine start ticking (like loud lifters) recently on passenger side towards rear of engine, seemed like last two cylinders but then more towards back. I stoped driving it just about immediately. After...

    Is this rubber plug in the corner a normal thing in V6/2.8l or something weird? There is a normal metal drain plug in the middle and the 17mm Allan type fill plug in the back of the pan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Did anyone use anaerobic gasket maker on the oil pan instead of an oem gasket + rtv ?

    2004 V6 Auto with 171k on her. Just noticed a leak at what appears to be the trans pan gasket. Is this common with this mileage or should I be looking at another place that the leak is coming from? It appears that it isn't leaking down from above the pan but the majority of the wetness is near...

    So I'm spewing oil out from the rear of my AWM oil pan. The 2 bolts in the rear feel stripped. Probable cause of the leak? You may know of the limited space in that area between the pan and tranny. Too tight to even get a 6/12pt socket on those bolts (allen sockets are my only hope). You think...

    I searched around but couldn't find my particular problem. I dropped the oil pan recently and replaced it with a FelPro gasket. What a forking PITA! :banghead: The one big bolt in the rear middle just to the passenger side that sits at an angle was [email protected] to get in there so I left it out. Well...

    I have searched this and have gotten floods of plastic belly pans being needed/not needed posts. I am curious as to how low you need to be to justify buying/adding the weight to your vehicle. For reference my old 99 eclipse was slammed. I mean front bumper couldn't fit a pair of vans classic...

    OK guys, so I did it. I dropped the pan and wiped the magnets with a lint free cloth. Was it worth it? I want you to answer that. So I bought the car (2004 passat 1.8L wagon) just a few months ago for $1600, it had been in a slight accident (she hit the curb), the control arm was replaced and it...

    Hi Guys, my plastic belly pan today ripped after I believe the nut that hold the front mounting point got off the bolt and got caught on something when I drive in the gravel road. My question, is this plastic belly pan the same between models or each has different one? If this part is the same...

    Toward the front on the molding below the doors, they're square-shaped and gone. I'll check with VW and see if they forgot to put them back on, but if that's not the case, what are these pieces actually called, and how much to get new ones?

    Hi! Here are some pictures of the damage: Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet A few months ago I purchased a Fumoto valve which screws into the oil pan of your car. It acts as a tap which you can open and close to facilitate easy replacement of oil in your card. It costed $20...
