    I want to replace my beige interior seats in my 2001.5 AWM Passat GLS. I am wondering if anyone knows what years I should be looking for at the salvage yard. I assume 2001.5 through 2205, but are there other years that will work for me? My seats are NOT electric so I want to stay with manual...

    I replaced pre-cat passenger side O2 sensor on a 2002 Passat V6. There are three connectors on the firewall, Green, Brown and Black. Since the new sensor had a black connector, I plugged it into the black socket on the firewall. When I started the car it ran very rough, I ran the car for...

    Hi - not sure if anyone has run into this for their Passat B6, but I had a question about turbo boost expectations, the updated rev "D" diverter from VW, and the Go Fast Bits diverter upgrade and some alternatives I found. Last year, I had an issue where I was losing boost and power and it...

    I'm rebuilding a 00 1.8t ATW. I have new ARP con rod bolts but I'm wondering how I'm supposed to get the old one's out. Are they pressed in there? I hit em good with a mallet and they didn't flinch. For clarification these are the nut and bolt set up not the newer star head bolts.

    I need to order a weld in flex pipe for my 2000 Passat V6 glx 4motion and wondered what the diameter of the original exhaust pipe is? Looks like a 4" flex would work but not sure of the inlet / outlet diameter....? If anyone could help much appreciated. If you've welded in a new flex...

    2004 V6 Auto w-trip. Has anyone ever replace this themselves? It has been quite a nightmare!!!! Someone replied to me a while back (can not find it) that all you do is remove the transmission mount on the drivers side. Remove a couple of screws from the switch. Remove and replace. That is...

    2001.5 1.8T Auto, 240Kmiles. My turbo is making a loud squeal periodically. I am going to replace it with one that has 110k miles on it. The oil line was replaced when the suction screen was replaced a few years ago. The oil has been changed at 5k miles ever since. Do I need to replace the...

    Is there a process other the 'pull hard' for getting this thing out. I was prying out the (plastic?) keep and the damn thing snapped in two or three pieces. I cannot got a good grip on the remaining part unless I remove more of the intake manifold. Is there a trick for this or just start using...

    My mechanic says that my center support bearing on rear drive shaft is shot and that he could replace it if I find a replacement and bring it to the shop. The proper fix is to completely replace the driveshaft. The car is old (2002, 140K) and I am looking to minimize repair costs. I called 034...

    I read everything I could find about replacing the upper control arms and watched the Bentley video. One guy said that he just uses a sawsall to cut the control arms then after the whole strut (or whatever it's called) assembly is out, then you have easier access to work on the pinch bolt...

    The back half of the pipe fell off a couple of weeks ago, and while driving around with that much noise is kind of fun and all, I'd like to be able to have my wife in the car. I've bought the replacement pipe, and looking at it I think I can get to the flange between the Catalytic converter...

    This might be either a very strange or dumb question but I've recently been wondering why you can't simply lock the motor into it's current position when replacing the timing belt. Is it possible to do this, replace the TB water pump and all the related parts or do you have to go through the...

    I have a 2012 Passat (B7, I guess). My driver side door lock doesn't lock consistently. Sometimes I have to give it a "love tap" just behind the door handle inside the door then it will lock. Other times all other doors will lock once parked but not the driver side. Also while driving at low...

    Alright, I've got an itch to fix my car and I've been thinking about this all day long. The laundry list of issues with this car has gotten much shorter over the past few months that I've been learning to work on it and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel :wrench: Earlier today I took...
