    Hi Folks, As many of yous know, it is common to find oil in the spark plug wells with these cars. The reasons why I am concerned: Enough oil can hydrolock the engine. Small amounts can put the final nail in your older catalytic converter's coffin (not ideal for new cats either). Foul up your...

    A fallen branch managed to whack my passenger side mirror hard enough to break the glass and turn signal, but leave the cap and power mechanism intact. I know how to change the glass, but I assume I have to remove the cap to change the turn signal - and I don't remember how. All the write-ups I...

I frequently need to haul tools, materials, and finished products, and I need the seats flat to optimize my room. I can get it to come up 2ish inches (5ish centimeters), but that is it. I tried it with the...

    I'm currently trying to replace the drivers side CV axle on my 2008 2.0T Passat. I spent the day battling with the axle bolt, but eventually (after snapping a breaker bar) broke it loose by applying some heat to it and using a new breaker bar with a big pipe. When I freed up enough space to...

    The center console with the armrest between the front seats. When I open the lid/arm rest there is an insert to hold stuff. How do I pull that out? Brute force? It looks like there are clips on the end towards the rear of the car, I'm not sure if there are also clips at the front.

    The old 2004 is now past 164,000km and now the O-ring seal on the breather tube above the oil filter housing is leaking.

    The station that did my State Inspection failed to mention they busted my hood latch in the process. The T handle has one of the fork ends missing (that typically hugs the pin), and the latch was so mangled, that I decided to just break it off. I've read some threads on PW discussing the...
