    My check engine light came on and my 2014 Passat (1.8T, TSI) is making a "putt putt putt" sound. The code refers to an EVAP system leak. Is anyone familiar with this code and the sound that I'm hearing? Thanks in advance!

    You don't have the VAG tool for it? I got the valves and keepers out easily enough by cutting a piece of copper 1" tubing, cutting out a working window in it and then placing a board on top. When I sat on the board it compressed pushed the tubing down and compressed the spring enough to get...

    I've got a '07 Passat Wagon 4Motion 3.6L auto. for quite a while, the heater has not been working optimally. My daughter's '00 Honda Accord blasts heat infinitely better. Also, if I put my hand right above the ash tray, that dash area is quite cold. Any thoughts on what may be going astray...

    I'm thinking that it's unique to have a Passat that is built but it is a FWD car and it'll mostly spin if your putting the power down. I had an B5 A4 that I crashed before my B5.5 Passat and I'm wondering just as a general yes or no question what you guys think? I want to have a reliable build...

    Does anyone know what parts I will need to buy, other than the coilovers, to complete a coilover conversion on my 08 Passat 3.6 4motion variant? I called ECS, but was on hold forever. Do I need a refresh kit, or will the coilovers come with some of that stuff? thanks for your expertise :thumbup:

    The passenger side lumbar knob came off on my 2004.5 wagon, and after inspecting, the cause seems to be the shaft tube on the handle that slips over the shaft cracked, loosening the knob, and the seat belt snagged on it. Soo , I buy a new knob. I see that the seat has a shaft with thread on...

    Is it as easy as loosening the bolts putting weight on the suspension and that tightening? What happens if you dont reset the UCA's after lowering?

    I'm working on strut replacement in front of 2000 V6. Have the struts out and expect that I'll have new shocks and strut tower put back together by tomorrow. Here's the question. I seem to recall reading somewhere that before tightening up a bolt on the strut reassembly, one should load the...

    I got a rear regulator clip off ebay and it comes with 2 cables and 2 springs. I think each cable is supposed to go through the spring and then the srings are put in the clip, but I can't figure out how to get the springs in the clip. It is really tight. Has anyone done this? TIA

    I was planning on getting a set of 17" RS6 reps with standard 225/45 tires. When searching for pictures I just seemed to get massive confusion about the fit. They're 5x112 so they'll definitely fit, but do I need spacers or anything? I didn't think I'd need to worry about rubbing. Aside from...
