    So in the process of returning my jack to its stock location, I saw this plug hanging out by itself. I have only had this car a month or so, so I am still getting acquainted. As far as I can tell, everything works on the vehicle save for some really crappy, spotty radio reception. I looked...

    Thanks to Sean (HunterRose) and Harry (don't remember his forum name)... My 01 GLX on winter shoes with her Euro HIDs and leveling motors. The 6 speed W8. On the OE Madras with springs already installed. That was a gtg in Bergen County in the summer of 2003. I think it was in Maywood. I do...

    Is this stub mount correct? Should there be something else in the square hole or was it designed to allow some movement?

    I need some help to try do judge my (side) motor mounts on a V5 manual 2003. From what I have read on this wonderful forum is that if they go bad, they should leak out their purple fluid. However, mine looks a bit different, here are two pics of the culprit (right-hand side): compared to the...

    I know it sure was asked before but after 1 hr of research I could not find the code for my B5 1998 that I bought yesterday and I need to order a part. I could not find any sticker on the trunk. The sticker in the drivers door reads: and I found this sticker under the hood: Any body help me...

    Car as of last night leaks the coolant reservoir dry in under 3 hours. Got under the car and I think I identified the hose going into the oil filter mount as the culprit. Now I am not sure if I should rip it apart myself and try to change the hose (no doubt will require putting the car into...

    Rough Idle 2003 Passat 1.8t, found unknown hose/valve disconnected (solved) So my car has been idling pretty rough for quite awhile now (~3 months).. I've done a bit of research and I think it has something to do with the PCV Valve.. I've tried watching a few videos on youtube and I couldn't...

    So I was out at Raceline USA today in Temple City CA. I wanted to get an idea of what my stock 2001 Passat has as far as power goes, it is a 5 speed fwd 1.8t with 141,436 at the start of the session. My highest horsepower and torque were on the same pull. This is my base, soon to begin my build...

    I drive a 2003 AWM. I think, the only check valve on the passenger side, was backwards. In the picture I show its current position (I flipped it according to diagram) Can someone who is familiar with this engine please tell me if the system is correct? The diagram is fking with my head...

    Just did the both of the cct's. Could someone please tell me if everything looks in time and the roller count is correct? The timing mark on the exhaust cam on the drivers side does not have enough light, but I can tell you it is on the timing mark. Thank you in advance for your input.

    Hello All! I'm so glad I found this forum. I don't have any friends who treasure their VW like I do. So to find y'all is a huge blessing. I've had my 2013 Passat for over a year now getting close to 2 years. I bought it all white and it looked like a mom car or rental car. Below is after I...

    The graphic/video thing was very confusing, and I didn't know what "platform" meant until I looked it up. Would be appreciated if sign-up was a bit more user-friendly, took 4 tries, and I've been in IT for 20 years! Thanks for the site though, very helpful!

    Trying to dress up daughters 98 AEB. I've got the correct cover (according to parts base.org) but it shows the front & rear mounts as being the same. Either I'm missing something or the rear mount is incorrect. Here are pics of what I have. Can someone take a pic of their rear mount for the...

    Yes, the quality is bad and the pictures are huge lol but that's because my trunk won't open and I had to climb in through the rear seats to take these pics. Is it AUG? EFP? Or one of the tiny illegible ones at the bottom? Oh, it was an automatic tiptronic transmission before it took its own...

    So here is one of the two (front) step light housings. Look at how the metal has melted and broken its electrical connection. B o t h Fronts! Will be changing to LED for lower temps and hope that a sodder may fix the connection. Don't wanna buy new/used ones if can avoid it. So, all...
