    So i just upgraded my 1.9tdi brakes to a 2.8 v6 brake kit. My problem is that i can't find the sizes for the rear bads. Can't find 256mm brake pads from the same manufacturer as in the 312mm fron ones. Is annoying that also it doesn;t say the dimensions like these are 256 pads and they just have...

    The car started overheating just as winter is ending anytime I get on the highway. It will float from 90C up to about 115C going back and forth depending on how Im driving. There is hot air blowing out of the vents at all times. This is what made me think it is the thermostat, but when I...

    Like others on this and other forums I wanted to fit new main (high) beam headlamp bulbs to my RHD 2004 Passat TDi Estate, which had not been replaced from new, despite 170,000 miles! But on initial investigation the job looked near impossible due to the poor access, and reading the experiences...

    2002 Passat wagen v6 5-spd, no mods, factory stereo. Okay. Years ago, sparked something in the cigarette lighter, causing the dome light to flash and a clicking noise from under the floor somewhere. No mechanic ever could figure out why it blinked. No other problems otherwise. Fast...
