    Im getting some clunking noises on the front passenger side of my 2008 Passat. Its only when I go over uneven surfaces/pot holes. If I go over a speed bump and both wheels hit it at the same time, there is no noise. I bought sway bar end links for both sides, but I haven't installed them yet...

    So, on my way home from work the other day my cruse control would not function and between shifts the RPMs would hang or remain higher than normal. After some diagnostics (which I charged myself $99) I found a little white button laying on the carpet. And I thought I think I know where that came...

    Anybody have a writeup and/or video for removal and replacement of a turbocharger unit on an FSI (BPY) Passat? Mine seems to have destroyed itself, and I think I'll be needing to do the work myself. I searched around and am not finding much, which surprises me given all the upgrades people...

    Car ran great after the new sensor was replaced. A day later the same issue but worse. Barely idles. VW dealer said that the car is sensitive to aftermarket parts and that I should purchase the $200 sensor from them. Could the sensor be bad? could it also need the crankshaft sensor? I do not...

    it appears that selling it just isn't in the stars. It's in good shape so I figure I'll fix it. Easier said than done... I took out the dash cover and can see how it attaches to the firewall. What I can't find is where it exits the firewall... or the slave... I figure if I'm gonna replace one...
