  1. RockAuto: Bought Timken, Received F.A.G.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    Fellow DIY'ers, I ordered a Timken rear wheel bearing from Rock Auto and was shocked to see a F.A.G. wheel bearing in the Timken box. Does this sound right? Rock is saying that they have no control over what parts Timken puts in their box. I also noticed that it did not spin freely like the...
  2. Just received my new set of Raxles.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    As above, just received my new set of axles from Marty. Quick shipping, great customer service on the phone, everything was packed beautifully and the axles look to be of top notch quality. Sure they were significantly more expensive than Chinese axles, but if you want to buy Chinese parts...

  6. Just received a European Manual from across the pond.

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    I was curious as to what things were different between the U.S. spec vehicles and Euro vehicles; I also wanted to be able to actually read up on what I have been putting in my car. So I decided to buy a manual for 1997-2000 B5 Passats, for a steal at $22.00. All of the cool stuff we don't have...

  9. Received My Ebay Keyless Today

    Volkswagen Passat B5 Discussion
    And the key looks to be genuine "HAA" is stamped on one side. But, there is a lot of slop in the key. The key probably moves 1\8" side to side. The seller offered to replace it if I send it back. Have any of you run into this? Is there a way to get rid of the "slop" from a loose key? The pin...

  11. Just received "mini-me" SNKVNNM (pics)

    Anything Auto
    Awhile back, you'll recall my purchase of the Audi A4/S4; well I now have a 427 S/C as a stable mate. The bodies "can" be interchanged but when I do, I have to shorten the wheelbase of the chassis so for now, it's on the "roller" frame:
  12. Who received the best Wagon lease deal?

    Volkswagen Passat B6 Discussion
    I have an 05 Touareg and an 02 Passat GLX Wagon and I'm considering getting rid of the GLX for a new B6 wagon lease. My question is who has or has received the best lease deal. Believe it or not I've called no less than ten dealerships in Jersey and have not received a single call back. My...

    B5 Garage
    I ordered plugs for my '98 1.8t AEB from www.discountvdubparts.com. The website has this entry for the car: I really didn't think twice about it since I recognized the F7LTCR part number. The problem is that the plugs I received have the FR 7 LDC+ part number (which I haven't seen before and...
