    .... and I don't care!! :) I dread the Passat doors, and only a regulator or regulator clip breaking would force me back in. Properly dealing with the water seal is the biggest bitch. I use that 3M strip caulk, which works great, but is horrible to manage. It's such weird behavior, it used...

    Hi Everyone: I recently had my car's tires rotated (tires are pretty new) at Goodyear tires and after that my car started pulling severely to the right while driving. I went back there to have it checked out and they said that I should get an alignment, so I did. My car still pulls to the right...

    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...

    Just had new tie rod assemblies and an alignment, new tires, all tires equally inflated. I still end up going right. Swapped the tires to test -- now it goes to the left. What are some key components for me to visually check to make sure nothing is damaged? I recently acquired two torque...

    Tried searching first - didn't come up with anything I could use. My car started pulling very noticeably to the right so I took it in to the shop. They aligned it, I got it back and it still pulled so I brought it back and they did another alignment. Got it back and it still pulled so I gave...

    Just got our 2.5 SEL Premium. Ours pulls to the right. Of course I'll take it to dlr but I thought I saw somewhere that there is a TSB on this? Anyone have this issue? Also. is there a TSB thread for the B7's? Thanks. BTW, we love the car.

    It is a 2002 1.8T Gls Model Fwd - Control arms have been done. - Tie rod ends have been done. - Alignment has been done. - New tires Put 3K miles ago. The car was purchased 2 months ago with an immaculate service record and 82K miles. The car still pulls right and requires me to countersteer at...

    2004 1.8T, 117000 miles. Lowered 2" on Neuspeed springs and Koni Yellow shocks. I've been noticing my car has a tendency to pull to the right a little bit, and there is a slight vibration in the steering wheel between 50-60 mph. I had previously chalked this up to a bad alignment and worn out...

    So now that I've finally got a wideband I was playing with different water/methanol ratios to fine tune my A/F ratios. Anyway, whenever I wanted to change to a new mix I had to stop, disconnect the supply line and pump out the contents of the reservoir and pump. Then, I had to re-fill the washer...

    Any suggestions for aftermarket interior door pulls? Mine have the ubiquitous peeling skin thing going on and are looking pretty ragged. I was specifically looking for something in metal, a flat black or brushed silver maybe. Thanks!

    2002 GLX Sedan. Drives fine, doesn't pull when accelerating nor coasting, doesn't pull while braking to a full stop applying normal brake pedal pressure. But.....if I'm driving above 40 mph and hit on the brakes (panic stop) the car pulls to the right. Installed new pads and rotors a few...

    Long-ish post. Please read through to the end to understand my dilemma. Several TDI owners in the New England area are preparing for our nearly yearly "Dyno Day". I have a new-to-me 2005 Passat TDI with tiptronic. In the past, the shop we're intending to use hasn't had optical pick-up for the...
