    Looking at buying an Audi 3 spoke wheel for my 98 1.8t. I do not have the multi function on my stock steering wheel. I came across and Audi wheel with multi function buttons. Will it still be a plug and play or do I need to find an Audi wheel with no multi function buttons on it? I just want to...

    Hello I really got tired of the passat rambling and creaking dash, the glove compartment broke 3 times and so on ... I had the opportunity to buy a used dash and all of its components for $100 so on we go to the task! I also wanted to adapt the 3 gauges into it. I really liked the tt shift...

    Hello, I finally got my project finished of building some LED Blinkers for my Passat and was wondering about some things on the VAG-COM. I built the blinkers with some high resistors in order for the "Bulb out" error not to light up but now the blinkers do not seem bright enough during the day...

    Bypass the monsoon amp? I didn't get much of a answer on any forums on Bypassing the monsoon amp and wiring up the hu.. I read the Headunit power runs through Through that amp. I don't want to spend 100+ on a kit to let me use my monsoon amp. Unless someone can direct me to the proper...

    Good Morning, I have tried several times to get the radio in my car to link up to XM radio, all of them unsuccessful. One issue is, no matter what I have tried, I can not get my service to update the radio in the car. Does anyone have any ideas on where to go from here? Is there some sort...

    It seems that my clutch is going out on my AC compressor ( only blows cold when decelerating or when its under 70*f outside ) and its getting to the time of year where its getting hot. The compressor internals are fine, as when it does blow cold, its really cold. I've figured the clutch on...

    Just want to know what the side strip mouldings on the doors are fastened with? I could pull apart the door panel to look, but was hoping someone could tell me. If it's just double sided tape, thats a bonus... My car has a fairly common rust spot underneath the trim on the drivers door. Just...

    Please let me know what is the aftermarket front shocks that is the closest match to the original shocks that came with the 2003 Passat GLS 2.8L Auto w/ standard suspension. (I think the VW part # is 3B0 413 031 Q ?) It appears that Sachs 170811 is equivalent. But are these the EXACT same...

    I've searched and cant find what I need to know so be nice:) Car = 2002 2.8L Passat Daughter had no oil pressure and messing up a head and a few other things so I thought it would be cheaper and easier to purchase a used engine and just do a simple swap(ha). Well last night I had everything put...

    Well after owning 3 A6's I found myself buying a 2002 GLX Motion V6. Seems like a great Ride. Unfortunately some butt-head backed into our 2001 A6 Quattro ( my HS daughters ride) and the Ins. company totaled it due to the high cost of repairs ; albeit a Frisbee sized dent in the Drivers-fender...

    2004 1.8T 100k The Problem: I have a coolant leak. My previous mechanic told me the leak wasn't a big deal, because it pretty much sealed itself by crusting over. However, in the past few weeks it's gotten worse. I've gotten under there and looked at it from several angles, and while the engine...

    i changed my oil the other day and used a mobil 1 m1-201 i think? but it isn't that large of a oil filter compared to the one for the 1.8t my question is is there a larger filter i could use next time to increase oil capacity? maybe the mobil 1 m1-304 filter for the 1.8t?

    Hi all! I had a buddy with a smoke machine test out the Passat. The car was not running at the time. Smoke starting coming out of the LDP...through the filter. My buddy said the pump is bad, because when it is not running it should be closed and hence the smoke should not be coming out of...

    Hi everyone. I've searched and couldn't find much so I figured i'd ask. I have a 2001 1.8 Passat with the AUG engine. I changed the air filter the other day. After that, my oil pressure light comes on and goes off every now and then. I changed the oil (1000 miles till my scheduled change) and...
